Well, yes, as a matter of fact, several times. It was still inside of a
live cat, however. (Technically, I couldn't actually SEE it but I knew
it was there.)
I would like to remind K7LXC that HE is the one who started the "cat
skeleton" thread . . . 8-)
In keeping with the main topic of towers and antennas, has anyone ever
tried to load a cat as an antenna? What feed system did you use? How
much gain did it have? I think it has been tried in Europe and they
called it the "CFA" (Cat Fazed Array). Has to be analyzed using
unconventional fizix . . . I understand that no matter what the polarity
of the launched signal is, it always lands on its feet.
(OK. OK. I'll quit now . . . )
