Oyster Town (G0IFS)
I am fortunate to live half a mile from the sea shore so noise not too bad.
The early home brew phasers had relay by-pass for TX but i prefer not to have too many contacts and impedance discontinuities in line.
All the Rx aerials have relay dis-connect for dc and feeder during Tx------just in case.
I try and use QRP where possible.
Good luck on your experiments, keep posting.
