    Hey folks, I've been working on this idea with several of my family friends. The design is unique, and forward gain looks to be in the 70db range. 10 DB per each Power Booster Person. I am thinking of making them all wear capacitance hats to get more modulation. I am going to call it the "Wallenda 7"

    The design is good, but not very stable in high winds.

    Looks very promissing.

    Besides, i noticed the entire "system" is in perfect balance !
    Thats a great advantage as it will contribute to the patten stability.

    Kind regards,
