Several months ago a source of Groth type turns counters (someone was making
them I seem to recall) was given in a message.  Yep, some how the message
got deleted (error on operator) and now I need a turns counter.  Appreciate
getting the information.

Send it to the E-mail address.

Barbara, Dave, and Dave (cc: CQ-CONTEST):

Someone should send them a copy of the latest FCC publication on telephone
interference. It states that: 

"...Thus, hearing radio through your telephone is a sign that your phone
lacks adequate interference protection.  This is a technical problem, not a
law enforcement problem.  It is not a sign that the radio communication is
not authorized, or that the radio transmitter is illegal."

The complete reference is:  FCC Compliance & Information Bureau
                            Bulletin CIB - 10
                            August 1995

This publication is entirely devoted to telephone interference and is a tool
every CONTESTER should have in his/her possession.  It even includes a
postcard to send to the manufacturer of the phone receiving the interference
and if the response is not adequate, the FCC tells you to contact the EIA
(phone number included).

Subject: 10/40 Close spaced stacking

Matt, you've got some good ideas here.

I have my 105CA seven feet above my 40-2CD.  (105CA @ 141ft, 40-2CD @ 134ft)
No problems noted.

Keeping the 105CA 15-16 feet away from (above) the 205CA is the HiGain spec.

I'd worry more about the spacing of the 40-2CD and the 205CA, but modeling
it will tell you the answer better than asking it here.

I have little experience with the pinning of booms.  I use the HiGain clamp
on my 105CA, but I do not pin it to the 2 inch mast.  Haven't had a bit of
problems with it.  The 155CA and 205CA I have are on ring rotors, so don't
know what would happen on a mast.

Be sure to model the 15 M and 40-2CD (might as well model the whole tower
while you're at it) to be sure there is acceptable interference there too.

GL es 73!

Bill, N3RR
