Re: Restoration questions

David- Lots of good questions that I can't clearly respond to. The brain trust is assembled in Middletown for the next two days so give it a couple of days before someone can respond adequately. The friction tape has been painted with various products from varnish to poly-tak Wag-Aero has those fabr...

Re: Radio Antenna Help

Justin- Typically the antenna lead has a make BNC connector and most SWR meters have an SO-239. That would require a BNC to PL-259 adapter. So if you are inserting it between your radio and the antenna, and the SWR meter has SO-239 input connectors, your would need two adapters and a coax jumper wit...

Re: Middletown 2018

Well I have been busy and missed this post until Wednesday afternoon.

Headed to Middletown in the morning. Was going to fly, but have elected to drive just to have a vehicle on hand.

See you at the Convention Paul

Re: Checking Electrical System

Justin, If you can locate a hydrometer each of the six cells can be checked for specific gravity. It sounds like you might have a weak cell, which means bad battery. If you go the Concorde RGB route, be advised those batteries like a trickle or float charger connected if they are not being cycled ev...

Re: New Chief owner

Congratulations Bob! Every hour I spent in the Chief when we got it made the smile on my face get a little wider. What Paul and the others have said about the Windows. The A-75 is little more than 'feel-good' hp. Same engine that turns a little faster. Bill Pancake's C-85 STC is the best $310 invest...

Justin-

You are welcome. It is a simple process once you get used to the hoops needed to make it happen. Size matters and images greater the 1024 pixels tend to occupy more than the normal window on a lot of computers.

Re: L-16 For Sale

Ed- An examination of the link you posted reveals it is to a 'home' directory on presumably your personal computer and there is no way the world can get there and access it. Aeronca Champ.pdf appears to be the file you want to share and if you email it to me I will be happy to put it up on shared se...

Justin- Picture posting has been a challenge here since Moses was a baby. At its infancy storage space was limited and budget restraints have kept the server storage low. The technique to post flyers or pictures is to upload to another site such as Snapfish or Google Drive and share the link. I use ...
