Re: Brutus bash tailgate'ers

Dale Putnam
 

I'm with you,  many years ago.. I built a box kite... flew it... for most of a day, and when called to the table for lunch, 
just tied it to a fence post.. after lunch, untied it.. and went on flying it... was going to do that at supper... but thought better of it. 
  I also built a 6" tall kite.... flew it.. but the string had to be #50 thread.... so I could only get it as high as a spool of thead would let me go. By the time it got that far away.. it was pretty difficult to see. 
  Now.. I live where I could fly one a lot... but... oh yeah.. a but... the turn to approach for right hand into the long runway for CYS... causes a problem,  for too high. That and the wind is usually so strong the angle isn't good for antenna. Maybe some of the new designs would work well.

Have fun, wish I could be there.

Have a great day,

Hi Dale,

Well, I am not in Kansas (any more toto) ha..

I live a bit north of there.. its about a 350 mile drive down to West Mineral.. I am interested in seeing these kites, and how they work.
It should give some good hight and some directivity to the wire. I don't know much about flyin kites either, but have been told to do so many times.

I think 40 years ago was the last time that I flew a kite, I remember it was fun, but the kites I would have flown are not anything like
the ones that Terry and others are going to be working with.

If the weather is good for the weekend, I am sure that we are going
to have a good time!

As open as the area around Brutus is, I'm hopeful we'll have somewhat of a breeze.

Hi 4S groupies...



I have had my camp spot reserved for a few weeks now.. and after reading

some of the messages about selling a few things on the e-list, I had a thought! (OH Nooo!)



I have a number of items that I might like to part with to clear out

some of the "to be built" kits on my shelf which are looking like they

will not get done anytime in the next solar cycle (or two).



I was thinking about bringing some of the stuff that needs a new home

down to the "Bash" to hopefully find someone who would want them.

Maybe there will be others who will want to do this too. Put them on the

tail gates and see if there is any interest.



Next week, I will go down to my "Lab" and check out what I might

have as excess.. and will post some more of the things that I will bring along. Not sure what I would need yet for these kits, as the idea just

struck me.. (Ouch!)



I know that I have several kits, such as the MMR 40, a few BiTX rigs (17 and 20 meter versions) a 'small wonder labs' SW+ kit, also maybe

a MKARS-80 kit, and an HF-PACKER amp or two. (35W one and 100 Watt unit)

An Elecraft digital wattmeter.. and other stuff...



All of these are kits and have not been started.



Anyhow, I hope we have good weather for the Bash, and that the rains

stay away this time. I will be in a tent again, and don't want to have

to put it up with the rain just starting to show up!



Looking forward to seeing everyone again, and to all fun, food, and activities!

P.S. You guys planning on flying kits, what are you planning on using for static protection on your wires? I had thought about kites before

but was scared of a charge build up doing bad things to the radios.

I had thought of a resistor to ground, or a large value of L to ground for the DC path..

Missed he "RMCW" call.  Heard it strong, just  misunderstood.  Will surely answer next time.
Out of town this week.  QRP CW is more challenging and rewarding.  Working at S2 - S3 takes skill.
 
Thing KS is off the end of my long-wire, which might be good.
Only use he HW8, long-wire, and bug.
