Author: Steve London <>
Date: Wed, 13 Dec 2006 12:34:46 -0500
When ever I reassemble a Tailtwister, I have the feeling I never get it exactly right. The gears are in the right sequence, but I always question if I have the washers and spacers in the right places

I'll add a third voice in agreement. It's easy to say don't turn it on a windy day, but unfortunately, contests sometimes (often ?) happen on windy days. If you're handy at repairing T2X's, the probl

In the hardware-store variety, the Maasdam PowrPull is built reasonably well. When the leaf spring that switches between "up" and "down" broke, they sent me several replacements for free. The Walmart

Date: Wed, 19 Sep 2007 06:46:05 -0600
I have had 2 Tailtwister failures in the past 3 months with the same T2X, same antenna, same tower. What is puzzling is that the failure mechanism has been the same both times, and I haven't previous

And it's even worse in situations like mine, where the whole house protector is attached to the main shutoff next to the meter, but the circuit breaker panel is 30 feet away in an interior room. I us

Steve, You still haven't determined an important piece of information - At what frequency is the current antenna resonant (X = j0) ? Find someone with a Palomar Noise Bridge, and the knowledge to use

9. [TowerTalk] Shorty 40 (score: 1)
Author: Steve London <>
Date: Thu, 18 Oct 2007 08:39:57 -0600
Someone could probably make some money by marketing a sturdy, 2 element 40 based on Dave Leeson's Moxon-like design. A hint for CushCraft, M2 and W3TX. Force 12 need not even try ! 73, Steve, N2IC __

I had similar problems when I converted my one of my KT34XA's into a KT36XA. To isolate the problem, I ended up removing each element from the boom, opening up the center shorting strap, and measurin

I often see people throw around phrases on Towertalk, such as "my hill is a 10 percent grade", or "my slope is a 10 degree grade". As I discovered in a wildland firefighting class, these are definite

I'm sure that others will disagree, but in my experience, protecting rotators and remote switches on towers is often a losing cause. On the positive side, I have never had a CDE/HyGain T2X/Tailtwiste
