Corey Ruth, KD3CR, was a speaker in last August’s QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo, with a presentation titled, HF in an HOA: The BBTD Attic Antenna.
His presentation captured my attention because Corey is a relatively new ham, living in an HOA, an immigrant to the United States, and using an antenna that for all intents and purposes, was too good to be true.
