Let's see someone finally compare the IC-7300 with another HF/50MHz radio that is actually in the same price class. $1500 +/- $100

Have you seen the threads comparing the Icom IC-7300 to the Kenwood TS-590SG?

If the fiberglass isn't shredding, then a light sanding with fine paper and then a good cleaning with degreaser, say 409 or equivalent, then letting it air dry in the sun, and painting with most any spray acrylic.  I'd give it a good gray primer first, then top coat with glossy color of your choice.  I did an X-50 like this years ago and it has held up really good.  Also done this on many Hustler G6 fiberglass sections.

Best of luck and 73

You forgot to tell him to wear gloves (and a respirator), otherwise, as above Smiley

My god there is more computer than truck in those fords.

I like my 2006 Dodge Ram Cummins. None of that garbage on my truck. I will probably never ever buy anything newer and when I can no longer get the old, I will build something from scratch.

Rigexpert use a resistive bridge so whilst you can't be sure BC would affect the reading it will do so in a different way.

I use the AA1400 and have some large signal sources near me but they are not BC and have never noticed a problem. have a look on the yahoo group?

The best solution is just open a support ticket with HRD.
Since its the logbook my first guess is that it has something to do with the Database and possibly some file that is not correctly registered or has changed.

When I came ashore, you had 1 year to pass a French translation exam, roughly high school O Level, if you did not, your pay went DOWN, now that is an encouragement, along with that you had to pass a test to use anything other than the standard hand key and do a weeks training on the RT circuits.

Was this a licensing requirement or just corporate policy? I could have taken a job any time with a shore station if I wanted... with no more than a 1st class RT license from FCC. In fact, I could have started a shore station (several of my friends had already done that).

I don't recall any specific corporate requirements for using a bug but in reality I never bothered to pack one with me. By the time I was working tankers for Sun, Exxon, and Chevron there was little RT work to be done on their ships: all Marisat. But if the Marisat quit it was your a$$ if you couldn't get it running. I remember daily antenna aiming trips to the mast on one run from Valdez to SFO.

My interests were more in the engineering side of the trade and so sitting watch on 500kHz was what I was paid for but my bread-and-butter came from the 8 hours of OT every day from the Chief.

I think the French exam was a hang over from the Civil service days.  It always struck me as strange that about .000001% of our tfc was in French but probably 20% of it was in the Greek language.

The morse standard I think was a historical thing.  The Passie boats were generally 1st class PMG and that meant 25wpm, so there had to be a degree of headroom over some smart R/O on a passie boat trying to teach someone a lesson, hence the 28wpm send and receive before you came out of the onshore training school.

The minimum was a 2nd class PMG or as it had morphed into the General WT ticket with its 20wpm test, also at one time you had to have 2 years sea time under your belt, that was changed to let people in straight from radio college, but they spent a lot longer in the school.

I know what you mean about the OT, I doubled as R/O and in off hours being the leckie on a small chemical tanker.

First and foremost go by what the Rohn specs say. That being said. I think a lot depends on how much you plan to put on the tower as well. I have 40 ft of 25G with a fairly heavy array of antennas on top and you can bet it is guyed.
