While I was searching online for some new antenna ideas, I ran across this fascinating site run by Dave Williams (G8PUO). His catalog contains several interesting kits which could be useful in your shack. The layout of the site is good, clear, and easy to follow. Most of the kits seem to be uncomplicated and easy to build. Check out Dave’s website (https://hamkit.co.uk) and see what he has to offer.
Just a quick reminder to all Hawaii Island radio amateurs:
