    All the rumors you may hear of my stacked 4-element 2 meter rotatable
    VHF mobile beams and 650 watt mobile Gonset VHF amp are absolutely
    true. 25 years after it was dismantled, I can still walk a hamfest
    and meet hams who remember me lighting flourescent tubes at 50 ft from
    the business end of it....(c;

    Yep. And you needed both 1.5V and 67V+ batteries to run them.

    Oh yeah...power and ERP is our friend, that is why I have 990 Watts ERP
    from one of my rooftop 800 MHz Sites.

    When we were testing the sites in failsoft for individual coverage we
    went out approximately 50 miles and didn't loose the signal (both
    talk-out and talk-back) until we went behind the dike on Lake Okeechobee
    (Florida) and it finally squelched the receiver on the XTS 3000.

    990 watts? You want me to turn it down??!!....(c;

    The stack 4 Cushcrafts were about 10 dB gain, with 3dB for the
    stacking. I used a hardline power splitter that was virtually
    lossless. 650 watts to 13 dB looks like about 13KW ERP on my
    sliderule. Not quite enough to work moonbounce, but I'd be full
    quieting on anything it could hear. We mountaintopped on Caesar's
    Head at Channel 4 one night, the highest point in SC near Greenville.
    We worked a ham at a TV transmitter on a mountaintop in Alabama....ON
    HIS WALKIE TALKIE...(c; Cool DX....

    We also hooked the 650W to the receive antenna near the top of the Ch
    4 tower by parking my van at its base and taking down the repeater.
    Big signals all over the South. Had quite a pileup until about 4AM.
    The rattlesnakes homing in on the parking lot lights were also
    interesting, at a distance.....

    No, i am not tired of Larry-we (especially me) are all a bit nuts for
    reading and posting here--I don't always agree with everyones post, and
    I am sure mine are the very worst, but I learn a bunch of stuff
    here---some of it doesn't even sink in until a few days later, and
    something will remind me of something I though unimportant, and will
    have to do a search--I have a bag phone too--and in the area I live in,
    I would not have cell service without it

    IIRC, the Springfield Enterprises 2 meter lunchbox ran on 135 volts.
    Although the Motorolas had 6 volt wet batteries, I think. I may even
    still have one of those down in the basement.

    Naaaa, no need. I forgot to add that it's 990 watts ERP per channel and
    there are 28 channels up there. The five 20' tall Celwave Bogners are
    quite a sight. With 14dB gain each and 3/4 degree downtilt you don't
    want to be standing in front of them for very long!

    Larry is often informative and/or amusing.

    OTOH, he is also often long-winded and tedious.

    What annoys me most, though, is when some innocent newbie asks a perfectly
    reasonable and simple question and instead of giving the simple, correct
    answer he's capable of, he goes into a high-power bag phone rant that can
    only serve to confuse the newbie.
