    I'd venture a guess that there are dozens of 501(c)(3) aviation museums that would love to have it as a donation, and you might be able to claim it as a tax deduction.

    I still wear my 55 year-old MA-1 occasionally when there's a chill in the air. It still bears my old squadron patch, but nothing else.

    Ron, I think you mean a full wavelength at 1030 MHz is about 0.29 meters, so a quarter wavelength counterpoise would be 0.0725 meters, or 2.8543307 (~3) inches.

    Thanks, Thomas; it's powered by a Continental O-200-A. Forty years ago I owned a C-150 with an O-200, and then an O-300 powered C-172, and am partial to these small displacement Continentals.
