    I used to have a ham operator as a neighbor back in the 70s. I was into CB at the time, a whole different world. He used to be up late at night talking , or coding, to people hundreds, sometimes thousands of miles away. If I remember Ham, I think it is shortwave, can skip off the ionosphere when conditions are right. I might have some of the details wrong but the basics are there.

    Anyways, he had this antenna on a 50 or 60 foot tower. It dominated his back yard.

    Well y'all in typical Mossberg forum fashion weve come to appreciate. Conversation here has led to actual life cool stuff. @Bobster question led to a conversation with @Steamburn who is ahead of the ham curve. He just sent me my first winlink email via HAM radio, very COOL !!!!
