The image http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/20/Antenna_boom_comparison000.png next to the article is completely out of place and totally irrelevant. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 23:44, 14 January 2011 (UTC)
i disagree with the advise box that has been put next to the article. the fact that the article shows how-to related information should't be a reason for the article to be moved.
I note that this page is listed in the category, "pages that have a how-to section".
I read through the article three times looking for the instructions. I could not find them. This is a simple antenna, and someone might be able to build one after reading the article's prose.
Perhaps the how-to section has already been removed?
I considered just taking it out of that category, but decided to create the discussion page instead. Maybe the person who thinks this is a how-to page will say why. Simicich 05:40, 7 September 2006 (UTC)
- I'm guessing it's about the "Implementation" section. I'll happily import it to wikibooks if someone wants to write about amateur radio. --SB_Johnny|talk|books 16:51, 8 November 2006 (UTC)
The content here appears to describe the antenna, not actually tell how to build one. It's not very long, I don't see why very short descriptive text that could lead to implementation can't be here. I'm removing the notice. --ssd 07:55, 26 August 2007 (UTC)
May 2011 updates
While exploring some of the External Links, one was redirected to a new host site (apparently the 2nd time the host had changed from original "www.swdxer.co.nr" which is no longer a registered URL). The ham operator now hosting the content does not have any of the original SWDXER SWL tips, and few relevant antenna articles. See his "Enter" page. I updated the stale link, for archival reasons, but feel it may have lost its relevance to the article.
