It doesn't susprise me that a ham developed the fractal antenna. During
"early" radio, hams developed and used crystal oscillators for nearly ten
years before they became commercially available. It is ironic that a ham
developed the fractal antenna yet it will produced for cell telephone which
is gobbling up ham frequencies and may, in the end, be the demise of ham
radio. Great alternatives to ham radio, like SETI, are perhaps a turning
point in ham history. Merry Christmas, Lee.
