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 67.210.53.39 (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[edit]

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.

The SWDXER link might warrant deletion, if it now has no useful information germane to the topic. — DennisDallas (talk) 14:50, 27 May 2011 (UTC)
