no, they are not out yet at dealers but supposedly you can order one from the mfg online.

I did get a nifty diamond antenna Not nearly as cool as a jpole. You have to tell me how you like it once it's up.

Default Sorry I missed HRO; but I played with radio today

[/mildhijackon]

While you guys were at HRO I was at a Dacha ~ 50 km SE of Moscow. My colleague has had a huge problem with theft and needed help with his radio system (which I failed to take a pic of) that alerted the security agency that their was a crime in progress. In reality I think the "security" agency is really in cohoots with the thieves.

Anyway, we grilled meat and drank vodka. I have also included a picture of some of the local fauna from my trip here two weeks ago...

I attached a *.kmz; if you have Google Earth installed click on the kmz and it will take you to where I was.

Chris' buddy didn't pick it up? Thought for sure he was going to buy it.

That was a fun morning so thanks to Tim for setting this up. What happened to 'Sparky' (Rudy)? Thought he was meeting us over there on his bike

what a fun way to spend a morning, thanks guys for coming out. After HRO I went over to Irbis, which is always a lot of fun. Hope to get started on the install later this evening....

But what if it fell off the blocks when you were goofing off in it? That would then be mobile....right?

Thanks for sharing. I'm living vicariously through you.

I have to wait for the coax, which they're shipping from Phoenix. It was ~$65 for 50 feet of coax. This must be different stuff than they use to hook up my satellite dish, huh? Either that or copper is more expensive than I think.

Unless he decided to make that his address, then it wouldn't be either, since it would be his station...

Talking Most folks look for 50Ω, not 75Ω...

Copper is pretty expensive these days. That is why recycle places who are actually legit are required to have you sign your name and give your ID for any metal recycling (aluminum cans excepted) because there is so much theft. We have a roll-off dumpster that is divided into two halves, one side for stainless and on side for aluminum and we deal with random theft even with a 500# lid on top. No way in heck do we keep our copper outside. It would be gone in a heartbeat.

The stuff for your Satellite dish is 75Ω coax. Unless you are doing all of the math to ensure proper matching of feedline, radio and antenna and find that you need a 75Ω match, it will impair your system from proper operation and good SWR ratio. Me? I leave all of the math to Dave.
