BOOTY 4

Discussion in 'Home Brew' started by BOOTY MONSTER, May 6, 2011.

  1. how did yours do with a 30 ft 6 inch vertical ?
    my radials are still at 108 inches so we would both have the same length of vertical above the loop with your's set at 90 inches and 30 1/2 ft .

    BM, what did you do to determine the differences as you changed the length?

    Hey BM, maybe I asked the question badly, I meant specifically what did you do to help you determine the differences you claim as you changed your antenna length from 27' - 31' feet?

    I'd really like to know, or is this your style of Yota and Coolbreeze reporting...where no questions are allowed?

    Antennas

    Hay good work looks nice to.
    But what kind of frequency range do you
    have with your antenna.
    I use both 10 meters and some free band
    on a I-max 2000.

    I asked Booty several times, here and on eHam, how his antenna performed, but he never responded.

    gareng, I don't think anything happened to BM, at least while I was praying for his soul, but latter on, after I stopped including him in my prayers...he disappeared.:unsure:

    About the time that DX was declining in my radio he built a really nice version of the Vector 4K, but I never heard any final results for how it worked out for him...last I heard he was still planning an antenna raising...and then he was gone.

    Later I heard an echo of a rumor with him saying, "...he had been banned without cause." So, a few of my prayers obviously didn't work out too well. :unsure::(

    At some point BM did post a nice thread over on eHam I think. It is in the Home Made Projects section, or something like that. A lot of HAM operators chimed in and either roasted him or toasted him...for his efforts in building the nice looking homemade CB antenna. That thread had a very high viewer rate considering the topic was about a lowly CB vertical 1/2 wave antenna and on a Ham Forum no less. Booty always had something interesting to, right or wrong, and plenty of folks checked out threads he posted on or created. He was however always at odds with somebody along the way...I guess he finally crossed the wrong guy with a button.

    I miss the ole' guy, at least he responded to ideas and discussions on this forum. A good quality worthy of note for a forum member.(y)

    Thanks for you comment.

    recent rumour is he pasted away (even his locals have not heard him on for a couple of years)

    he did go quiet after he called out 10 gauge over on MD for a fight but didnt turn up for it (10 gauge did) i think he got embrassed over that

    he was hanging on dxrt.com for a while after that but mackmobile banned me for a time because he didnt believe i was actually in NZ..however mack learned the truth and let me back on dxrt but i never saw booty on after that..anywhere

    whatever happened to him i am sure hes in a better place
