Re: Guilty

I've done some similar things like that too. After the first time, I thought through the problem and came up with some solutions.

- I can always hit the Tx/Rx button on the software and stop the transmission mid-sentence. It's drastic, but it works.
- I can put my cursor on the Tx window at the end of the text, and then lean on the backspace key. If the letters haven't been sent, they're deleted before sending. Just don't keep doing that into text that HAS been sent, or your software will actually transmit the ASCII code for "backspace", and letters will disappear from the other station's display.
- But I eventually figured out the best approach, at least for me. Digipan has a command "Clear Tx" which completely clears the transmit buffer. I just programmed one of the macro buttons with that command. Whenever I do something that I want to avoid transmitting, a quick tap/click of that function key eliminates all untransmitted text.

I haven't checked on other software, but I'd expect most of them to have something similar.

Re: Rotor

Jerry N9AVY
 

Not going to work since neighbors put up fence. Not enough room to squeeze through now. The only thing that might work is an outdoor scissors lift which is much narrower than a truck  and has big off road tires.  Ground is uneven and tipping is possible.  Tower is in back yard. 

Thanks for suggestions, but I have a climber who doesn't work for free, but cheaper than anything else.

Jerry you might look at renting one of these lift devices with no more height than that I don`t think the lift would be as expensive as a truck. My tower is 60 ft and guy I use can just reach it he has a old power company truck that has a lift arm as part of bucket which is nice since it can hold the antenna and reaches a few feet higher. I looked into the lift but it was more expensive than paying this fellow and he does the work.

Re: Rotor

Morris WA4MIT
 

Jerry I needed tower work few years back and like you no longer should be climbing and no help either to change out rotor and put up new/different beam ant. I found a tree removal  guy with a bucket truck he has helped me out few times now. Just depends on how high your tower is if they can reach it. Good luck 73 Morris wa4mit

This guy has been hanging around 20m, but seems to make a couple contacts and disappears when he has too many calling him.   Suspect he's part of the crew with W9SW who's been operating mostly CW  from St. Barts.

For years I've been trying to convince FS/K9EL to operate PSK31  when he vacations on St. Barts,  but digital doesn't exist for him.  Best I ever got from him was convincing him to operate his IL  remote from Canada so I could hear him work himself.  :-)
