Nice hardware. I can't believe how cheap that amp was. I'll keep looking for one around here, but the only place I can think of looking is Radio Shack and they didn't have them. What kind of copper wire will you use for the radials? I think mine is 14 gauge. Do you think a thinner wire than 14 gauge would be better? Good luck and have fun building your antenna! I'm looking forward to hearing your comparison with the cantenna.
