    I'm in the "2" zone, but I have salted the earth near the antenna so it doesn't get overgrowth across the driven element. I don't know if that affects conductivitity in a positive way as I would expect, or is detrimental.

    I'm pretty stoked. Did something I would have never dreamed about 5 years ago. I passed my Extra test today! It was a much tougher test than the General test I took a month ago. Sure glad I did it now. if you are on the fence, just do it. I used this online site to study for both the Geneal and Extra tests and it worked great. 24 hours of studying for the General, and 40 hours of study for my Extra ticket. Most could probably do better. I don't have real great retention and that helps.

    You can use the free online services, but I found that this paid service was much better, and not all that much money in the big picture.
