galahs are a problem to me as I have a number of ham radio antennas which the galahs get caught in and I usually have to bring them down to repair
Hehe, sound as if you are a problem to the galahs too.... Do you repair the galahs ;)

So they're silly birds? Ah, yes youtube shows how playful they are. That'd be like tame jackdaws too.

Yes silly birds, fly crazy all over the shop.
They can make great little bird friends, super friendly if hand reared.

some manage to fly away but the antenna can generate very high voltage which although they are not touching ground can ruffle their feathers somewhat . I only transmit at 100 watts but I know others that turn up to 1000 watts if they have birds on the wire. My magnetic loop antenna puts out 5000volts at 100 watts and if you hold a fluorescent tube just a bare tube it will light up as bright as anything - I never have any trouble with this antenna with the birds. galahs are a problem bird to farmers due to their numbers in the flock they can land on a wheat crop and bare it within an hour or less - they are like the wombat - two species that have no real use on earth except to destroy things.
