UT Holy shytty ballz UT The bands must REALLY suck-ass....[which they are....bands are just noisy and crappy--even 75M has been crapping out] Evil or Very Mad


Well, I finally got rid of my RFI problem. I can run 1.2KW and no hint of RFI in the audio ON ANY BAND--YAY!!!! Very Happy --thanks Mike, lifting the ground on the FURMAN did it. Wink [I still may go though adding caps to the Bling-Box, just as a precautionary type project].

I haven't logged into BW in so long they desided to contact me to ask why the hell I don't use it.....--'cause no one is ever there when I log on in. Laughing

Anyway, we're being patient in waiting to hear great audio again along with much better signals......see ya'll during those minor spirts of spot activity.....[wait that doesn't sound right] Embarassed Rolling Eyes Laughing Cool

Tryed Skype, but don't have enough bandwidth for it to work right with this crappy dial-up we got here.
Echostink actually sounds better than Skype for this reason.

ohhhh......
Thats what happened. was wunderin why ya didn't yak at us. Gives thy a finger
Saw Andy on Echostink....but before we could get 'em...he loged off.
Have been still messin with the other "estate" and putting it on the market so things are still real busy hear. Rolling Eyes
Have the wrap-around desk built in the shack, now alls that is left is the equipment shelves, partition, and workbench, and the all important AIR CONDITIONING!! Razz
The tower building is also coming together. Have the base installed. Have all the pipe for the guy anchors. Alls that is left is getting the concrete and the machine to dig the 4ea 5' deep 12"diameter holes.....(not to mention someone to do it for us) and installing the rest of the tower. Hangs itself
The steppir should be hear in another month or so...and that will go on top of the hazer (which we haven't got yet).
Should be ready for this winter conditions on the air......hopefully.

Until then my VooDoo Brothers.....

Keep the Faith!!!! Weedman

Man, I'm still trying to get used to this hot-ass air here in Georgia--NYC ain't a picnic either right now [with temps into the high 90's]. But at least I know the HUMIDITY is lower there than it is here... Evil or Very Mad Central cooling has been on 24/7 for the 2 months and no sign of turning it off either.

As for Sky, I would never treat ma VooDoo [God]father like that--I was soooo pissed with my PC after that night, I vowed not to use Sky again....but as necessity would have it, others are asking me to join it [due to conditions].

While you're going through the Decontructions and Contructions over there, I hope you're taking pictures...for those lasting memories of all the blood, sweat and tears you're pouring into this--not to mention so we can see all the trouble you're facing, so we know what to do when encountering [possible] pitfalls... Rolling Eyes Laughing

Finally, I see you broke down and went for a SteppIR....hmmmm.... Question I would have loved to have hear ya with that 5 element QUAD....or even a 12 element "dummyload". All in all, good luck and we look forward to hearing you and the rest of the VooDoo Boyz back on the air [condx permitting].

**BTW, 17M and 20M played extremely well into the very late evening earlier this week....all stations from out west to Texas, Louisiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Oklahoma to short haul in Florida and the Carolinas were all heard and work [in one big QSO]. I guess it's something to look forward in the upcoming years.... Cool

Never again.

Well......havn't been taking any pictures of the shack as of yet because most of it was just general construction practices....less the soundproofing measures. but all the tricks used for soundproofing the new shack/studio can be found in these free downloads from http://www.soundproofingamerica.com/download.asp . Also another good site with lots of information is http://www.acoustics101.com/.
Didnt do everything of course....but did do a bunch of the suggestions, like Double Sheet rocked, double walls (actually 2 full walls with studs and everything!), EVERYTHING was caulked and sealed including all the outlets, Solid door with airtight seals, etc...etc...
The only problem we will have is with vibration due to the Riverhouse is up on 14' stilts. We wont be able to tell that until the equipment is in place. Twisted Evil
Should be real interesting....man it would be nice to not have to use a downward expander AT ALL!!! Laughing

There was a LONG thought process that came with that decision.
Just don't have the room for the longer antennas. too many trees and cuttin them is NOT an option.
Also had to be able to nest a 2 meter beam up above the hf beam...that ruled out the Log Periodic (dummy load) and the Quad.
So it was down to the 3 element and 4 element SteppIR.
The 4 element was a no go....back to the trees again....it was just to long.
So the bottom line is the 3 element SteppIR with the 28' long K1FO 17 element 2 meter antenna on top of it. But there will be a twist....of course....have 3ea of the K1FO antennas. We are going to take 2ea and make 1 out of it by cross drilling the boom and make it a "Cross Yagi" capable of both Vertical and Horizontal polarizations.
All this crap will be on a hazer.
That is the Plan.

Will try to remember and take pics of the rest of the stuff, as there really isn't a whole lot of information on the web about certain things, like Elevated guy wires, building cross yagis, and such. There is some, like Tower Talk for the tower related shit, but that was about it.'

So until we get all this stuff oriented and accomplished....
We leave you and the VooDoo Crew with the task of spreading the VooDoo message and keeping the Dark Audio Magic alive!!

Will do "Oh Mighty and Powerful One"..... Twisted Evil


Sounds like a whole helluvah lot taking place there bruthah. I wish I was there to lend a hand--since I don't DO shyt all friggin' day except wait for the next thrunder/lightning storm to brew up so I can find some adventure in disco'ing my antennas....WHOA! Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the Sound-Proofing link--BTW, the first one is a dead link Wink

FB, on the final decision for your array. It's sounds like it will work out for the better, and just may prove that you wouldn't have needed anything bigger anyway. **I still long for the acrage [and own property] to install a 3 to 5 element QUAD.**

As discussions of antennas, amplifiers, radios and audio continue on the air, I try to gather as much information as I can about antennas [from the stations I speak to]. There are lots of options [as you well know] and though the GREAT reputation of "band-opening" QUAD's, I'm still partial to Force12--I adored mine back in NYC.

Now guys are still mentioning OptiBEAM, Hex-Beam, Mosley, HyGain, Lightning Bolt, Tennadyne, Sommer and [the most talked about--and gaining much ground and repsect] SteppIR. The choices are flattering and exciting, so I can understand the thought process that was applied before you came to your conclusion. We still have another 2 years or so before bands begin to improve, at least according to predictions.

I wish I could run without downward expansion/gates here....but that ain't happening for a long while--I'm sure you heard the demo file I sent ya. Embarassed

There are a lot of stations that are curious of the sound of their stations. For the past couple days and nights I've recording and emailing mp3's to ops that openly welcome the offering of receiving a recording of themselves. Whether or not they are satisfied with their "tonal quality" is entirely up to them. But it shows that having nice-complimentary audio is well saught after by many more than I ever anticipated. It true that many are still not ready for VooDoo and can't even comprehend it's sound.....but the axions of Da Thundah will be heard and felt through the airwaves..... Twisted Evil

**Shyt....did I type all that...OMG!!!! UT ** Twisted Evil
