The Light Bulb Antenna

This was found and forwarded due to a inside joke at the technical committee. A particular rig of discussion apparently uses a light bulb as a fuse in the output stage to prevent current inrush from the antenna.

Well, here we have KB9RLW telling us about using a light bulb as a dummy load. He first discusses why this is not a good idea, then builds his own light bulb antenna. Hope you enjoy the wonder that is, the light bulb antenna.
