That’s all you need to know about Gareth and

He probably didn't need any antenna at 1/4 mile (400

snip interesting detection story

Stephen Thomas Cole, the PP, just after gaining his UK Full
licence by 'acing' all three exams, appeared on a UK Amateur
group asking which sideband he should use on 40m. That's all you
need to know about him and and his ability with radio.

That sounds interesting - can you provide a link to that post?

No. For some reason it's been deleted.

Then we only have your word that it ever exsisted. I choose not to
believe a word of it.

'It's been deleted' means it did exsist. You can't delete was was
never posted. You might ask yourself why it was deleted. That's all
you need to know about his ego and and his ability with radio.

We only have your word for any of that. I choose not to believe a word
of it.

JFTR the offending message was posted in the group, on the 1st of December 2013. Some news servers
will carry messages this far back, the one used for this exercise has
messages back to 27 June 2003. Downloading all available messages from
that group shows that the offending message has 'disappeared'. A
response to the offending message remains and quotes in full the
original message. The OP's answer to that response has also
'disappeared'. The full text of the offending message was reposted by
the responder. It confirms the confusion in the OP's mind concerning
which sideband to use on 40m, just as was stated. It is left to others
to speculate on why two such embarrassing messages should have
'disappeared' out of the 530+ from the OP that remain. The original
message can be found on Google Groups:!or...A/_ityI76x0IMJ

Feel free to choose to believe what you will.
