12:42 Song: “Sam Lay Shuffle” by Sam Lay And His Appaloosa All-Stars, from the album “Live on Beale

15:08 Topic:

One of the questions that came up at Field Day was about a fellow’s dipole antenna, a G5RV. What’s the best height and does it have to be a straight, flat dipole? How does the ground affect things? Most wire antennas are a compromise in one respect or another. What about NVIS (near-vertical incident skywave)?

29:31 Song: “Ever Be Here Again” by Kelly Joe Phelps, from the album “Lead Me On (15 Year Anniversary Edition)”
