    [–] new ham: troubleshooting, need some reality checks flaflashr 1 points ago in amateurradio

    The original QST article by Lou Varney, G5RV, specifically says to not use a balun. I never used a balun on mine, and I worked mosts of 5 band DXCC on a G5RV.

    g5rv sucks

    No, it does not. I have 5 band DXCC and I worked 75-80% of that on a G5RV. But as others have said, the ladder line portion of it should not be laying on the ground.

    I also had a lot better success when I grounded my station. YMMV

    [–] Title Insurance flaflashr 0 points ago in homeowners

    I am not an expert, but I think there are 2 pieces to this. The first is where the policy benefits the mortgage lender, although it is paid by you, the borrower. This part is mandatory, in that the lender will not give you a loan without it.

    The second type benefits the homeowner against stuff like other posts have mentioned. It is optional. I bought it based on the strong urging of my sister, a real-estate broker for over 35 years. It cost me about $622

    As with all insurance, you are betting that you will need it, and the insurance company is betting that you will not.

    Apparently F29 KDE spin is the red-headed bastard child -- more than 24 hours has passed since F30 patch was released, still nothing for F29 KDE

    [–] Does 7,000 gallons of water for a toilet that leaked for 2 days sound right? flaflashr 40 points ago in homeowners

    Hey, at least they told you in 2 or 3 days. Much better than having it run for a quarterly billing cycle and getting a bill for 210,000 gallons

    [–] Does vinyl siding really lower property/list price? flaflashr 2 points ago in homeowners

    Does the contractor have a vested interest in selling you siding other than vinyl? Maybe his brother-in-law sells Hardiboard

    [–] Hey. I need help asap please! flaflashr 1 points ago in linuxquestions

    He's talking about using an Ethernet cable to connect the computer to the router/modem. This will get you temporary internet connectivity while you search for drivers for WiFi.

    [–] I need help with my new installation... I mounted my previous /home partition as home, but my old files aren't showing up. flaflashr 1 points ago in Fedora

    Almost certainly the UID of the files being different of what is found in /etc/passwd. You can either force a new user ID to use the correct UID, or else edit the UID in /etc/passwd to match what the files have.

    Also, you will need to correct the GID which is found int /etc/group
