    Default Another Classic on its Way

    Well, I am at it again...

    Project Parabolic is on its way with another total refurbishment of the "classic" parabolic. Stay tuned for pictures...

    Hi Gary,

    I just completed the refurbishment of another Parabolic, and listed it in the Buy/Sell section. In fact, I placed some of my other (new) antennas in there as well. I just have too much, and decided to see if any of the members had an interest.

    I really enjoy working on these vintage antennas, as it is a wonderful hobby to see a beautiful antenna at the end of the process.

    I regularly see UHF parabolic antennas by rural houses between about Wauseon and the Indiana State Line.

    Someone really should get with roofers and recyclers in the region to have them recovered intact and buy them from the climbers.
    Comparing Sporadic-E skip to skip on the AM and shortwave bands is like comparing apples and oranges.

    Comparing tropo to skip is like comparing apples and bacon cheeseburgers.

    I know of two 4251's, here in the county, that I suspect are no longer in use. (Little satellite dishes in the yard) If I were 30 years younger I'd see about obtaining them. (I'm gettin' old and tired of climbing towers)

    A 7 ft parabolic is not easy to keep in the air...

    ... so, the installation needs to be as 'bomb-proof' as possible.

    What I really need is a new Channel Master 3617B VHF to replace my broken Antennacraft CS-1100.
