Hi Julian. I have what is probably a "stupid" question about your QFH antenna for NOAA reception.
Every article I found specifies millimeter accuracy. Your howto specifies 221.6cm for the longer loop and 122.15cm for the short halves.
But here comes the question. Is the space needed for soldering the wires accounted for? When you connect two wires, there has to be certain amount of overlap. And when millimeter accuracy is needed, the size of the overlap matters.
Thanks for the website, it contains a lot of interesting information.
I was a bit saddened by your linux article though. I understand the software choice argument and agree with it, but there were too many inaccuracies there about the support for binary distributed software (there are Linux Standard Base, /opt and .local mechanisms..) and you never mentioned the distribution's name.

Hello Julian, nice stealth setup. I have been QRP operator since 1986 when I received my Novice Ticket. I still own my 1st rig, Heathkit HW-9.
Sorry to hear about your distaste with Linux. I run Linux exclusively and only use Open Source Software in my Amateur Radio hobby. Linux has come a long way since you abandoned it in 2008. But to each his own, just as in this hobby. Some of us like HF CW and some HF Phone, and others only anything above 30 MHz which is one of the principles that makes this hobby so great.
Hope to catch on HF QRP CW someday. 73 OM de KB8AMZ, Terry

Thanks so very much for your VOAProp software which I discovered this morning while looking for information on the Beacon network. It's brilliantly done and quite a contribution to Amateur Radio.
Your morse training tool is also well done. Although I am naturally proficient my son is just learning at age 11, and I do think this will be of help. So thanks for this, too!
I read of your tumour trouble with sadness and send you my cheers and best wishes.

Thanks for the website. I have been searching for info on this type of ham radio operations. I am a new ham and this site is a real boost for me.
I dont have a lot to spend on a new rig and was thinking about the Yaesu 817 for a base station and portable work...plus I have attic space! So 5 watts is possible to work the world!

Hi, Julian. I'm looking on your website for years. Very interesting ! Thanks therefore. I'm an old technician from telephon and bank cards machines. I've got a FT-817. Because I'm a survivalist, stealth antennas, and so on are my need. Thanks Julian.

Hi Julian, just wanted to let you know I have been using your Wonder loop design for a couple of years now and have now crossed the pond with it, running the UQRSS 1 with 200mW on WSPR.

I just started HAM radio and I read your reviews which really helped me a lot. And then I read about your health condition.
I hope you get better. I pray for you.

I read and loved your article about the QFH antenna for the weather satellite band. I wish to do a replica of that, but since I'm quite newbie and dummy about RF and antennas, I have some trouble understanding your instruction :-(
Can you explain better, maybe a tutorial and some good pictures about how to connect the coax cable loops?
Thank you very much!

Wow! I am hopefully about to get my Tech and General licenses and was very discouraged about my environment for an antenna. No actual restrictions, but small lot and not much backyard (all pool) Your article on stealth antennas opened my eyes. THANKS!!
