My 20m dipole with its “drooping” arms

Droopy Drawers can be a real problem!

This image came to mind while I was describing my 20 meter band dipole to someone and I called it my “Droopy Drawers Dipole.” This image is part of a somewhat famous pin-up painting by famous pin-up artist Art Frahm. There was a pizza shop at the Oregon coast which had this painting displayed on it’s wall. My dad was a photographer and loved these kinds of pictures. He was also a ham radio operator so all these things tie together somehow.

My webpage about all this has more discussion of the subject of “droopy drawers – both my dipole and also my memories of the old Art Linkletter show in which he interviewed some women whose panties HAD dropped to their ankles while they were out in public! Click on the link below this picture for those discussions and two complete pin-up paintings by Art Frahm.
