The 800 number is working this afternoon at Force 12. Spoke to the very
nice lady that answers the phone -- she didn't know anything about 10M
reflectors for the C-3, or a C-3E. Suggested I call back "in several
weeks". I think I convinced her to give Tom a message saying I am
interested, but need to know more, as (probably do others subscribing to
the Towertalk reflector). . . hopefully soon, since I have my C-3's on the
ground right now waiting for a Montana thaw to go up.
Since Tom broached the subject publicly on the reflector, I'm hoping this
isn't smoke and mirrors (vapor-ware). What say, Tom, can you elaborate?
Specific questions include:
Does the addition of the 10M reflector affect the static balance and the
wind torque on the antenna? Suggestions for re-balancing?
Will this affect side-mounting the antenna on a ring-rotator or a swinging
sidearm rotator mount?
Will this affect the turning radius of the C-3?
Best guess as to weight and moment for the C-3E?
Most important: Cost and availability?
The addition of the 10M reflector would appear to address one of the very
few shortcoming of the C-3 vis a vis optimum stacking distances.
Thanks for the input.
