Ed Levin 1750 windsock

The rope lashing at the top of the windsock appears to be coming apart. When I had the duty I used antenna guy rope which is impervious to UV throughout the life of the windsock. $10 at HRO. http://www.hamradio.com/detail.cfm?pid=H0-002179

Re: windsock

If you're talking about the 1750' windsock, I purchased that 36" windsock frame in 2000 from Aerosock Inc. They're still in business at http://www.aerosock.com/windsock-frames/double-ball-bearing.html I also bought 4 spare bearing sets in 2002 for future use. Phyl Hamby might still have them, I...

Re: Mission Web Cam re-aligned. For now.

Hi guys, My 2 cents. Remember you're mounting a camera, no a radio antenna. A free standing pedestal base is going to shake in the wind. A better mount would be a 4" steel pipe 2 feet into the ground with post hole concrete. The best plan is to mount it to the house. A ledger board lagged to th...

Re: Six Ed Levin Launch Videos

All of these lauches had problems with pitch control. One simple cure is to get the hang strap tight BEFORE the start of the launch run. The correct AOA will then be possible to set and hold during the launch run. -Randy

Re: mission webcam

Doug,
If this is a PTZ (pan,tilt,zoom) camera mount, it's a bad idea. There's one on Mt Allison that they had to lock down to the general public. The cyber miscreants were on the camera P,T and Z-ing constantly, to where the camera was almost unusable. -rt

Re: Next Soarable Ed Levin?

Hi Alan, If the road to the top is closed, always consider the road to the 600’ closed as well. The 600’ road is steeper than the road to the top and hence gets damaged easier if wet. I tried to get up the 600’ once and found out the most dangerous part is trying to back down the road after a failed...
