Thanks for the antenna help

Thanks to the list for all the responses to my question regarding my
first antenna. The consensus is:

1) I should use a 40 meter dipole;
2) I should not use #26 wire -- #14 or #16 copperweld was recommended; and
3) I should not use a balun.

Between the responses to my questions and the recent thread on "tree
fishing" I think I have a good idea of what is necessary for an effective
antenna.

Thanks again,
  Jake (KF4MRE)
