Subject: Won't find it: Lakeview (hamstick) Bug catcher 10-40M

Message: Yes works great & used one for over a year out in CA. It is more or less a 20M ham stick with a coil at the top of the bottom section that you can tap like any other bug catcher, but do need to use a impedance coil at the base. They are rare and very, very hard to find. No I will not let mine go.

You can make one using a 3 ft. rod, a 4 in. by 4 in. coil and a 36 in. whip. If you eve want to try to build one contact me. Of course for better even if have a good mount use a 4 to 6 ft. rod. Coil material can be purchase I believe on the internet or ham stores maybe.
