Services needed/offered heading? Software/Antenna modeling?

Post by kd7dcr » Wed Dec 28, 2011 7:26 pm

Howdy all,

I have been looking and searching here on the QTH site and can't seem to find such a heading or any reference thereto.. Am I the first to go looking for such casual services?

I need a couple of ideas modeled and checked out before cutting wire or digging holes... how to best "share" two towers between some yagi antennas, interactions, etc... AND, a quick look at a "caged element" vertical with a top loading wire, for 160m...i.e., just how crippled will it be hanging next to my tower.

Thought I would post something here and spread out some WTB ads... I am willing to pay for this modeling run / service...

Just noticed that there was no such "area" or "heading" here to focus things better...

I think it would be OK to post a wanted ad in the classifieds. Could probably use the Antenna category, or maybe Miscellaneous?

Thanks, Scott...

that's just what I did...have one answer back so far...and, one interest...

Just thought that maybe a "heading" would make it more focused..

The primary focus of the classifieds is to buy/sell/trade equipment. I guess I really don't want to "encourage" a lot of "help me do something" ads. But an occasional request for help, is OK, I guess. Hopefully it works out OK for you.

RR that..

Guess it's "different" according to "which angle" you view it from...

I saw it as a request for "bid" for services...

BUT...as the saying goes.... When in Rome...etc...etc....
It's your back yard...not mine.
I just want to come play in it sometimes...not have to mow it, etc...
(or:::: pick up the dog poo, eh?)

Have a great New Year...work K5N as a treat...

I was lucky enough to work K5N for two new grids the other day. 1,074 miles from here to there, so a little long for meteor scatter, but with their great setup, and some good rocks, I was able to work them easily. :-)

Thanks for the site feedback -- will take it into consideration and maybe something will come of it one day.
