I really liked the team building training that Dilbert et. al. treated us to
recently. We could all use some of that.

No, not all of us. I certainly think my OMNI-VI is one fine RX and the
clean, simple front panel appeals to me.

Hmm... What about us, long distant guys, who usually can't take some info
As for me, I read this reflector with great pleasure and have some useful

Here's the numbers for N2WK Unlimited Multi in the June '95 VHF QSO
Party. Wayne just sent me these, so they should be considered
"preliminary" numbers. I know he hasn't had a chance to scrub the

Subject: CATV Connectors
Thanks to everyone who posted messages to me responding to my previous
request for information on the use of 1/2 (.5000) and 3/4 (.7000) aluminum
jacketed CATV line. I will send responses to those that requested them.
Suffice it to say that the convention wisdom is that one can easily dump
full legal limit (+) into 1/2" CATV line just fine at HF. The other real
important piece of information was that one should not tape aluminum jacketed
CATV line to a galvanized tower without also expecting the destructive
effects of electrolysis (as an avid yachter, this definitely got my attention
as it is deadly in yachts/boats....) so some mechanism must be set up to
the jacket away from the tower leg.
My current question and the prime unresolved issue is where to get
connectors. I will need both "butt" connectors and step down to RG-213
type connectors. There has been a thread on how to rig step down connectors
so I will refer back to those. However, where can one find butt
connectors. Where are vendors who sell directly to end-users, do you have
any general suggestions. Feel free to write direct to my "personal mail
address" rather than the reflector and again, I will keep responses on
file and "reflect" them to those that have requested information.

Subject: Where I am
Dear fellow contesters, anyone straying through Mexico City is invited to
give me a shout at the following local number 211-0820
The area code for XE is 52 and the city code for Mex. City is 5 for anyone
desiring to call long distance.
Having just moved there are no antennas up yet and no longer a 16 story
antenna support, but cope I will.

Subject: Audio Splitter
Something for FD: Anyone have info on an audio splitter that can take a
single stereo headphone input, and output it to two or more headphone jacks
with individual gain controls? Didn't Telex market something like this a
while back (blue & white box)? 73, Kevin NC6U
