W4HOD Spud Gun Update

By | May 30, 2010

Tweaking continues on the W4HOD version of the W4SSY spud gun. An air leak appeared at the base of the air chamber. After repairing it, the gun is successfully holding a 50 psi load. There appears to be a very minute leak around the pressure gauge, and we will decide if it warrants repairing.

Monday is the big day. W4HOD club members will meet at the Alabama QSO Party location and start shooting rope into the trees. We will meet for lunch in Auburn and then head out to the operating site. I hope the weather holds for us. Bob, KA4PKB and Cheryl, AA4YL bought extra fishing line and hooks at Academy Sports Saturday night, so we will have spares if needed.
