This small program was first coded in Creative Basic a few months ago, to demontrate for the local club members how easy it is to program our own radio amaterur tools.
The Code for Creative Basic is posted in the CB section.

Hi Aurel,

The SlimJim is by far the most effective of the two antennas, but on shortwave it becomes very cumbersome to erect, as the dimensions become rather large.
