  1. Hi Bill
    I listened to 182 with great interest (as always). I was particularly taken with your item on bears and the Appalachian Trail as I have wanted to walk it for years. I never will now but it fascinates me.
    You mentioned Bill Bryson's book but I can highly recommend Dennis Blanchard K1YPP's "Three Hundred Zeroes" It logs his transit of the AT with his QRP/P rig. A great read.

  2. I've made a few digital contacts on 160 using my 80M dipole. I too am looking at an antenna for top band, and selected the wireless dog fence wire as a reasonable cost solution for a few thousand feet of wire.

    Also, what happened to the blog layout? I much prefer the ability to see a few posts on a page, not the current one per page.
