This is Brad, I’m currently living in Suva, Fiji. Originally from Texas, USA, but have not lived there for many years. I have moved around for work and will only be in Fiji for a few years.. I recently picked up the hobby, due to availability of time, and a long-term interest.
My background is that in the Navy I learn much about SONAR, Sound Propagation, and electronics, that Radio was just relating what I already understood.
I have built several versions of a horizontal dipole, one having to rebuild due to learning curve to safeguard wiring from the elements.
