Re: Still holding its own - HF Radio

I would not be with out my HF but I will be getting a sat phone for some locations like the Kimberleys in Australia where Hf just does not always get in or out of the gorges. As for Ground plane using the 3" copper tape I have been told to place two strips 3" apart this gives you a 9" wide ground plane.
