Letters are grouped above and below the line:

AEF
------------
BCDG

Questions:

1. Where does H go? I? J?
2. Why?

:poke:

Note: I posted this on another forum but no one will touch it there! :D

bnmcgraw figured it out...so if you want to think about it, don't scroll to post #5

Just a shot in the dark:

AEFJ
------------
BCDGHI

As the letters flip-flop above and below the line, the amount of letters increase by one additional letter ? Maybe ? Huh ?

Nope. Show it to your kids, the younger the better. :bleh:

The upper grouping is all straight lines, the lower is all curved.

Sorry, not font literate!

Congratulations Mac... Too late for me to go bk to the 5th grade. They won't let me in. That was simple. Sometimes we just overlook the obvious. We try too make it too hard and too complicated.

Well, you have got to admit I almost worked my call into the solution! Didn't have a way to add the number 5.

I like the diversity of the threads here.

Just completed the triple diapole antenna found in the March QST and will be using it as a portable on my Damon Challenger.

These guys run a great forum. Like most hams, just a bunch of good guys. I need to look up that antenna. I've been trying to get something working a little better for the RV. I usually just work 75 and 40 meters. We're going to swap 5th wheels tomorrow (get a little larger one). After that I'm getting serious about my antenna situation. But, that's another thread.

Currently in Pelham, AL (a little south of Birmingham)
