Ordered the Flex-Radio 5000A with the second receiver, the
ATU and two different mikes on Thursday last week.
Expect it to be three or four weeks for delivery. I'm
also looking at the SPE Expert - 1 kilowatt, fully automatic
amplifier. Just this weekend I heard that Steppir is
going to be the dealer for North America for SPE.
Great - because I am starting to look at the Steppir DB36 -
80 through 6 meters on a beam.
Here is a link to a
great video on the amp
and here is a link on the Amplifier itself:
"You can see the
"temporary" road I was describing. Note geotextile cloth
sticking out the edges with gravel on top. Heavy equipment
can drive over this without damaging the soil underneath.
Works great! This is farm land in Ladner where a
company needed to access the farms."
John came up with a
great idea - eliminates the need to dig up the soil, and
significantly reduced the amount of gravel required.
In addition, this is a true 'temporary' use of the land.
Pick up the gravel, roll up the geotextile cloth.
Spent a few hours last night, now that I have a plot of the
farmer's field, laying out two alternatives for site
placement and layout. This still needs a lot of work.
Both plans have a pad 120 feet by 120 feet. I think
this is too big - need to lay it out on the field and
eyeball it. I'm currently thinking a 53 foot C-Can
placed closest to the access road might be the best
positioning. This way, anything parked on the other
side of the C-Can will not be visible to the access road.
Initially two towers
and a few telephone poles - need to work on the separation a
bit more and distance between them.
