Hello to everyone and so glad to find this forum. I am retired and originally grew up in Texas but have lived in Washington State for 22 years. My radio is on order along with a dipole antenna and the coax and swr meter. Used to be a radio head back in the 1980's then life took off pretty fast. I am still looking at what type of permanent antenna I would like to install. I am up in elevation and have a 2 story home and a shop in the back. Any help on a good antenna would be appreciated . My radio is a Uniden Bearcat 980 ssb/am. Hope to get on the airwaves soon. Curtis
