Hi guys.

I would just like to re-inforce Lloyds comment about "enjoying your dad".

We so often take for granted the people and things that we should most cherish.

I certainly wish my dad was still around, and that I'd taken the time out of (what I thought was), my busy schedule to get to 'know him' better.

Regards Mark (M1BAA) in the UK

I see this is an old post, but I like the answer to the young man's quesion, not about the antenna , but about the Dad. Amen.
