Probably be more accurate to say 'What I didn't do this weekend in pictures.' Or maybe Mission Aborted. As you can see I've gathered together the materials to make a loop aerial … using 10mm copper pipe which is plastic coated and already curved. This is for receiving only, but the loop aerial has a few advantages over the whip or wire. Bought professionally they cost anything from 200 to 600 quid, but I figure I can knock one up for well under a ton. Alas the weather has pretty much buggered that. To give you an idea of how dark it is, I took this at midday in the conservatory (glass on three sides) with a digital camera. (Sounds a bit like Cluedo doesn't it ) Even so the camera fired the flash on Auto, which I found unusual. Ah well, Spring is but a fortnight away.
