Who Remembers The Gotham?


Listening earlier today to hams on 75 Meter AM, I looked up one of the guy's call signs on QRZ and noted reference to the Gotham antenna. I hadn't heard of it, so I poked around on the web.

Who remembers or perhaps had a Gotham. It seems to have been an effort in marketing rather than engineering, at least in some people's minds.

 The Hole


Two Maine hams - Jeff -  W1JFF and Pete -  AI1O, are out hunting, and as they are walking along they came upon a huge hole in the ground.  

They approach it and are amazed at the size of it.  

Jeff says, "Wow, that's some hole; I can't even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is?"  

Pete says," I don't know. Let's throw somethin' down there, listen and see how long it takes to hit bottom."                

Jeff says, "Hey, there's an old automobile transmission over there. 

Give me a hand, we'll throw it in and see."                

So they pick it up and carry it over and count one, two, three and heave it in the hole. They are standing there listening, looking over the edge, when they hear a rustling behind them. As they turn around, they see a goat come crashing through the underbrush, run up to the hole and, without hesitation, jump in headfirst.       

While they are standing there staring at each other in amazement, peering into the hole, trying to figure out what that was all about, an old farmer saunters up.  

"Say there," says the farmer, "You fellers didn't happen to see my goat around here anywhere, did you ?"  

Jeff says, "Funny you should ask, but we were just standing here a minute ago and a goat came running out of the bushes doin' bout a hunnert miles an hour and jumped . . .headfirst into this here hole!!"  

The old farmer said, "Naw, that's impossible . ..  I had him chained to a transmission."






N1EQ Tech Notes 


You may have seen some of Mike Nadeau's tech notes in the past. He has added some and has published them in Blog format. If you have an Icom or  Kenwood, you might be interested in some of his notes.  Take a look.


Mike - N1EQ, has a radio repair business that he has operated in Central Maine for a number of years. It is an on-line business  where accepted transceivers are shipped to Mike's shop, repaired, and shipped back to the customer. If you are in need of a repair to your transceiver, that fits the criteria, he might be the choice for you. Take a look   at his business website.

What is the Bull Net?

The Bull Net is a group of amateur radio operators (150 +) who get together during the afternoons on "The Secret Frequency" of 3928 KHz LSB. The goal is to have fun with the hobby of radio. Topics are varied, but there is generally some discussion of radio, a certain amount of bull and of course the food segment. Everyone with a valid license is welcome, so stop by and say hello.



The Bull Net started a number of years ago by Bill or "Willy" (K1APM) and "Slim" (W1POR). Slim's imaginary bull was talked about a great deal on 3928 because the bull had a lot of unusual and exciting experiences. As time went on a few more people joined in until 2004 when the Bull Net was established. Thanks guys.
