    Welcome to the forum. Was looking for origin of Deim. Chuckled when I stumbled onto urban dictionary. I think highly of myself as well.

    First is a GOOD antenna. You might think radio. The antenna could serve as a flag pole if all else fails. A radio is a door stop without a good receiver antenna; the longer the better. If you want skip from it, it can't be your car top 3' mag mount or most other 1/4 wavelength; there are few exceptions.

    Im going to out on a willow branch and guess CB is your starting point?

    All depends on your purse. Go big or phone home.

    Hello again! Lol yes CB is my starting point getting into radio. The name Deim kinda has two meanings. I致e used 船eimmortales (a Percy Jackson reference) for all my online gaming names for years. As no one else used it and people would recognize me and say hello from game to game.

    Deim : shit head
    Deimmortales: depending on the language is either 双f the gods, or the immortal

    Either way you think of it. Long or short, kinda the same thing. Cocky little prick sometimes.

    Anyway

    I think I知 going to replace the cobra mini Ive been playing with in my truck for these past months.

    What do you guys think about the uniden bearcat 980 SSB radio? If I get a taller whip would it be possible to dx with that?
