What are the lemon antennas?
While The Daily Antenna is mainly about homebrew antennas, it's sometimes interesting to read about commercial products.
If you'd like some light relief, read the antenna reviews on eHam.net. My favourites are the types that make outlandish claims like multiband coverage and/or are likely to be inherently lossy.
eHam's main review page is here. There's eleven antenna or antenna related categories. Pick one and click on the 'Average Rating' column. The lowest rating antennas will be listed first. Happy reading!
PS: Prefer instead to read about antennas that work? Check out Hand-carried QRP antennas. Favourably reviewed, it's available via Amazon in either ebook or paperback. Find out more here.
