BARA PRESIDENT'S REPORT
From The President's Desk of George KC6KGH
Someone called me the other day and asked me if I noticed that the SWR changed somewhat when it was raining. I said yes, and it's also a reminder to us that we skimped on sealant on some of our outside connections, when we could have taken a bit more time when we put our antennas up. Nothing more disconcerting when water gets into the co-ax.Try ladder-line on HF.Zero Loss.
