    Hello group,



    I have a friend who just acquired a Maco Shooting
    star 8 element beam. This beam seems to have a few
    mysteries. This friend is looking for pictures of the
    assembled beam. Does anybody out there have
    some pictures taken from a range close enough to
    see whatever details he is looking for. We have
    the artists rendering, we need some real life pictures.

    Thank you in advance.

    Maco beam pictures

    Hello Group,

    Thank you for the advice, however, the Maco site has
    artists renditions of the different antennas. The Maco site is
    the first place I thought of as well.

    As I stated before "This friend is looking for pictures of the
    assembled beam. Does anybody out there have
    some pictures taken from a range close enough to
    see whatever details he is looking for. We have
    the artists rendering, we need some real life pictures.".

    I personally run an Interceptor 10K, I am a typical radio
    guy, I took hundreds of pictures of my Interceptor 10K,
    you would probably call this pride, pride of ownership.
    also I can look at the antenna up close at every angle
    and see every detail, all without climbing the tower. I
    guess I am looking for somebody who has the same
    level of pride of ownership as I do.

    Thank you in advance.

    100's of pictures?? Sounds like a fine line between pride and obsession. :laugh: Seriously thou, have you checked out Google images? Most folks actually don't take a lot of close up pix of their antennas, at least not close enough to see a lot of detail unless it is something specific. Any special part you need to see up close?
