RE: FM Satellite Etiquette



If you singe the feathers off of high flying Crows, you need cooling.  I use
dry ice myself as it lasts much longer than plain old ice and is far
superior to water.  I'm only running 1500 watts into my 100 element yagi
though, so your results may vary......

Our club will loan you our kilowatt amp if we get our new amp built.  I
won't tell you the power, but we'll cool it by submerging it in the city
reservoir.  Does anyone know at what power level you should water cool the
antenna?
