Does the gauge of wire matter? Should it be stripped for best results?
Thank you for the info

The gauge of the wire makes no difference for other than being strong enough for the wind and weather. No need to strip it. Very simple and easy and you can do almost anything you want and it will work. But the lower frequencies you want to listen to, the wire should be longer. It can never be too long for a receive only antenna, so the longer the better. The lower frequencies are a longer wave length, so that is why the antenna for lower frequencies should be longer. But even too short will work, just not as well as longer. Too short could cause the wanted signal to get weaker than your internal noise, which usually isn't a problem anyway after several feet of wire.

Again transmit antennas are a totally different story, but receive only antennas are very simple and not critical.

Reminder, HAM radio Exam Saturday, 8 July 2017 at 1300 hours (1PM) in Pahrump at the Nye County Emergency Operations Center, 1510 Siri Lane, for anyone interested.

There will also be a Technician class study from 8 am to 12 noon at the same location, if you have been studying for your Tech class license and want some extra study, have questions answered by three old hams, two of whom are Electronics Engineers, call Dick Grady at 775-513-4388 and make a reservation for the class.

This class ALONE WLL NOT give you the information you need to be able to pass the exam, you will need to have studied the material for a couple of weeks in advance.
