Next stage of the tower/shack project will be worked on Saturday. I’ve already fitted the plywood floor but could really do with some help fitting the ply sheets for the walls and roof. I need to cut these using my table saw, but they are just a bit on the big side to handle carefully/accurately on my own.
OK, appreciate it was a bit short notice. I re-primed the house fascia boards instead but have taken out all the lengths of plywood and pencilled on all parts that require sawing. I did drag the table saw out but the wood sheets are just too long for one person to cut them safely and accurately. Is anyone available for about 1/2hr some night this week to do this?
OK Guys, Will try and spend a day cutting and fitting the panels when I get back from IOTA. In the meantime, the floor has been fitted and is covered with a tarpaulin, although weve not had rain here for about a fortnight and it’s not forecast to rain for a week atm.
Well is circularly polarized so it can only really be for one thing. Can you say Sputnik ?
CPSARC new comp yagi.... fries everything in its path...
Good for interstellar comps as well.... 😂😂😂
So, it's not an antenna for a death ray? Powered by Italian watts... ?
Helical suggests something that’s likely to rotate and not be perfectly aligned on the far end. Satellite is the obvious one. It’s an end fire with reflector so probably relatively high frequency rather than using a coil as a shorter than quarter wavelength vertical.
The one thing that makes me think not satellite is the support cables look like it only elevates to around 60 degrees max. So on that basis, possibly vhf to planes, particularly military jets as they wouldn’t always be flying level.
Eme or inter planet probes?
Pretty sure it's one of these. They were a very common antenna system in the 70's and 80's.
bloody contesters, how am I supposed to talk about the colour of my coax when they are shouting over the top of everyone? 10Khz wide you know, they don't listen, and what's the point? you're 5/9 all you details again. Why cant they give proper signal reports and why cant they just use certain portions of the band.........😭😭well there's nee one on now so knock yourselves out 🙂
