warlock, why do you keep asking the same questions over and over ( sometimes repeated from months and months ago) on 1 or more threads about the same topic question, ?

the reason i ask the same question again months later is because i have tried out what has been sugested and if that has not worked i ask the question again, i wish i knew it all as some on these threads seem to think they do, if they know so much why do they not help people like me who do not know it all if they did help i would not have to keep asking these stupid questions that the know it alls dont like me asking anyway what has it got to do with them anyway or has one got to ask them if it will be ok to ask a question. from warlock1946

I cetrainly havent said that any of the questions were stupid, I just wondered why you had repeated questions that other members had already given answers to in the past.
I also certainly didnt pertain to know everything, not everyone on here does and ...I definately do not, I ask about lots of stuff on here, and usually recieve very helpfull answers.

I we all truly did know everything, than there wouldnt be this site in existance, it wouldnt be required, and moreover so would the hobby, as nothing would be left to learn.

But following on from your question, there was a thread by someone asking the same sort of question, and I took the time to draw a fairly detailed diagram of a marine band antenna that you could make for a lot less than cost to buy one........

Here is the thread with diagram.......http://www.transmission1.co.uk/forum/vi ... =5&t=16157
