Just watch for sales that won't be there last minute. You can get ready to build in leisure if you tortoise it along while there's time.

It's like splitting wood. You don't wait till October do you?

About the CNC camper. You could suit up and stay out there for hours. But what are the chances that when you go to leave a snowdrift has piled up against the door? Well, not real high but not exactly unheard of either!

Did you get a heat wave in the last week? I think we hit into the 90's for a couple days, back down to daytime 80's now and chilly at night.

but, i went into it knowing it had electrical problems in various places, and would need an overhaul. but just once i would like a surprise, and have it work perfectly. alas, no.
The sheer optimism is BLINDING! I need a welding helmet to read stuff like that!

That was a joke, Trav. A very exaggerated premise joke.

Me either travis. :-/ A half lit dust box isn't blinding. Good luck. Did you get the CNC going?  I think you said you did, but we haven't seen anything neat made from it yet!

No, but his optimism is not a half lit dust box hoping that buying old stuff stated as not in good condition will work perfectly anyway.

Have you ever met a 320 lb guy nicknamed Tiny?

See Reply #120 for details.

Or in Basucks that would be GOSUB 120

Yup, south of the north pole except the ones who just don't get it but are all geniuses.

That would be 20A with the gain turned up full? You can't turn it down?

can you just attract the wings to a tree? i don't know anything about antennas but if you could use a tree as a post that makes things simple. Do you really need an 18ft wide Antenna? That honestly seems a bit gaudy... if it were me i'd start with the smallest antenna that would work, see how serious i was going to get about ham radios, then build a monster antenna only if i really needed it.

For Ham radio, 18' is a small antenna. You should see big.

You have to move an 18 foot antenna around?! Yikes.


Something like this wouldn't work work?

I also saw a dipole antenna get that was 20m long. Seems like you could find use some trees approximately 20m apart and string it up in in between them.

Don't truckers have ham radios? What kind of antenna do they Use?
