Hello All across the Pond.
What I would like to know is, how did the @ symbol come to be used for "at
the location of...?" when @ means "at the rate of..." as in "twelve @ $5 =
$60". Surely "AT" is more correct than "@".
Thanks to all who gave me advice on kites and aerials, especially for the
warnings about static electricity, and the enormous forces needed to pull a
catenary anywhere near straight. Might try a third kite to hold up the
feeder, if ever I can afford three kites.
