Wow your prices are high..
My 1″ copper pipe ten foot long was $13 and change , my project box was 17.99.
I used 4″ PVC for the base and coild form, so i dont have a price on the mast pipe your lookig at..
As for the ground, Thsi is how i interpreted the rules and how i built mine.. I feel the rules state than in total yoy radiator and gound cant be longer than 3 meters, but where your ground touches the dirt is the end even if you have chicken wire or radials under the dirt.. that… Other wise if it included all the radials ect you could than clam that if you put your ground to the dirt and the dirt would conduct the signal more than 3 meters.. That just makes no sence then tyere saying that you cant have a antenna.. because the moment you ground the transmitter you have used up your 3 nmeters and beyond because the ground wave will utilize more than 3 meters of dirt..
This is the reason i stuck with a ground mounted antenna and not a on the roof one, Luckly My homeis on the edge of town and it all feilds behinde me so my coverage area is right in front on my home, thus any waves that are hampered by my home will net be lost..
As for content, My station is basicly music durring lul hours.. middle of the day ect and in peak hours morning and evenings ect.. this is all talk content, that is liberal in base.. Really my station is my way of speaking my opinion to the masses… The Best part is everyone that leaves town or comes into town.. has to drive right in front of my yard where a nice lighted sign will sit advertising teh station.. Oppertunity knocks and i open the door 🙂
