Thank you sir for very kind words. But ryo think only did so so. Am VERY embarrass about getting C in anything, except of course for Kanji study and like said was just amaze at get B- in that course. Is highest grade ryo ever get in Kanji Study. Could have done better in Analytical Geometry and could have done better in Advanced Social Study, but ryo alway do pretty good in math and science. Thank you again sir, but ryo not feel deserve any compliment, but even so you very welcome for kind word.

Your friend alway,

ryo would like to go to the University of Texas in Austin and double major in music and lab sciences. ryo love music and play bass guitar. but also honto love science. physics and chemistry are ryo main interest but would also like to study geophysics and geology. will most likely minor in math. but will also continue kanji study because it was ryo mom's wish that both self and little brother learn nihongo to be equal to our english.
ryo is very humble by your interest in self. it warm ryo heart to know that there are such most very excellent people in this world. you are very special friend. tomo! tomodaishi!

Your friend alway,

Austin is a great town

samD stayed there last year for about 10 days. We were in our RV, saw lot's of neat things. Went to Luckenback and Fredricksburgh. Nice people and lots of good food.

ryo found this book some sai ago in library and thought well since it about dallas cowboys it most likely pretty good. and it was very good book too. bob lilly also say he never buy into idea that team unity was ever necessary to winning. he play on 1971 cowboys national championship super bowl winning team and he say this was team where everybody on team hated each other. players hated coaches. coaches hated players. offense hated defense and defense hate offense right back. interesting that coming from bob lilly neh

With an advanced Physics and fine math background, you should be able to study for the General Class Amateur Radio license, and learn all you need to know to grasp electronics and antenna theory.

ryo not entirely happy with grades. am happiest about the B- that got in Kanji Study! ryo have lot problems with study of kanji and was so very proud to show my pops that B- cause it the best grade ever got in kanji study. am very embarrass about the C+ in Advanced Social Study. and my pops not very happy about that. But ryo alway do well in math and science. alway have. just seem to have knack for it. it not even hard to study. it just seem to make sense in ryo head when learn new thing in math or science. right now ryo trying to study science of ballistic on own, but really think need a teacher or tutor because even with Analytical Geometry, which lot people ryo know who very good in math say they hate that course cause it so hard, but ryo not think it hard at all, but anyway, it just that precision is very important thing in study of ballistic science and so really need guide or tutor or teacher. clint chan will most likely help ryo with this when he get home from holiday in italy with his wife. am also trying to teach self more about metalurgy chemistry cause am very much interest in this and my school only do this for one semester in 2nd year chemistry, which ryo already have done.
Thank you again for your sincere congratulations. it mean much to ryo. and it just so happen that have find out that there is place just a few block away from where live that have this radio study every first tuesday of month. so talk with my pops and he say it ok for me to go next month. victor chan wife is also ham radio person and she give list of site and suggest book for ryo to read so this summer ryo will begin study this. spend lot time study electromagnetism in physics and so this is natural extension of that and ryo now have very much new interest. domo arigato goziemasu for suggestion sir!
see LLE sir, thing is that ryo is math and science advisor to design team of group here at gunslot and am working very hard on solving some problen that we need to solve in order for our bullet to do special thing we want it to do. and of course clint chan is doing calculations base on some preliminary calculations ryo did and sent him before he leave and so cannot proceed until get report back from him. which will probable be most likely a few day after he get back. ryo not expect him to work on ballistic problem while he on vacation in italy neh. but am so looking forward to his return just cause ryo miss clint chan very much. but also because really need that report back asap. neh. thank you again sir.
do itashimashita. (this mean, you're welcome)

my trucks all run 10meter band ham radios..and i don't know that them guys know the difference between ham and ham radio...i guess its easy for them to buy them things with no license..

licenses, Y'all are under arrest.. If they are operating 10 meters illegally, they will eventually be caught, because local Hams monitor, and can triangulate and then report to an FCC field station. If the truck guys are apprehended by the FCC, that can mean confiscation of the equipment and heavy fines. When you say "my trucks", if that means you are the boss and knowingly permitted illegal operation, your penalties probably would be more severe.
Lastly--even if you all DO have Amateur licenses, you are still in violation of FCC regulations, because Amateur Radio may not be used for commercial purposes.

amateur's indeed..LLE

but not the class you envision..i got up this morning and sent e-mails derecting all drivers remove any electronics that are bound by FCC regulations governing their use..said electronics will be removed by this weekend...as the late great ROSS PEROE would say.."problem solved"

If you need to use radio communications between trucks and you, or between each other, you could use the regular citizens band [CB], which is the 11 meter band, or the newer GMRS UHF service. These would work as long as you do not need long distances.

before the advent of Chaos Theory, wave propagation, which math work for any waveform energy to include radio wave too, was only understood in certain way in physics neh. Chaos Theory now give us more tools to work with. CT is how order emerges or grows out of disorder neh. for example, if you standing by a lake or a pool and you throw a rock into the water, the first thing you see is a splash neh and then as the energy of the rock hitting the water expands the disordered energy of the splash emerges into the more ordered energy of the wave as it ripple across the water. there is another way to look at this too. convection is another form of waveform energy. to prove this dr. illya priggogine of the university of texas at austin conducted a serie of experiment where he would heat water in a pot to boiling. he would then record the bubbling convection of the water on video. then with the pot still boiling he would take a wooden spoon and stir up the water until the boiling stop and let it boil again. now you would think that it would be impossible for the first pattern of convection to return because it seem intuitive that this would be something like fingerprint. well your intuition would be very good because it is relate to fingerprint, but in a different way. but this is for a different discussion. astounding as it may seem, the pattern once set up, will return again and again and again in a self similar pattern of self replication for, in theory, forever every time you stir the water up and let it boil again neh. convection energy is a self replicating system in a closed environment, like boiling water in the same pot.
waves of the same frequency or of different ones when they meet will interact with each other and do different things depending on, well a lot more that it worth to go into here, but point is that wave propagation is a lot more easy to understand with Chaos Theory than without neh. it is all about how order emerges from disorder, and then disintegrate into disorder and then return to order again in a cycle.
as for fingerprint, all are different neh, but all also look like fingerprint and serve the same purpose. same thing for leaf on tree. all are different, and yet from the spike on a cactus to a maple leaf, all leaves are the same and serve the same purpose even though every single one is different and unique. this is another example of order out of chaos. recommend some good reading for you. Order Out of Chaos by Illya Priggogine and Chaos: The Making of a New Science. this book is by a different author and escape ryo memory for now. will look it up for you and get back to you later with this.

I appreciate it, but don't bother. I can make a field expedient antenna for a SINCGARS or ASIPS radio out of three sticks, MRE spoons, Claymore firing wire, and "550 cord", so that's all I really need.

ryo not have clue about what a SINCGARS or ASIPS radio is other than they are some kind of radio, but understand the type of genius it take to make an antenna out of sticks, plastic spoons, wire and 550 cord. there is all this stuff about right side brain and left side brain and ryo really hate biology and study of neuron cell is one reason why neh. but even so there is theoretical and practical and some people are one and some people the other and some people are both. the both thing is easier to understand if you think about a pilot who is also a poet. who was the world war 2 pilot who wrote, "for i have slipped the surly bonds of earth and with outstretched arms have reached out to touch the face of God..." saw about this pilot not long ago on the military history channel neh. and these wonderful lines from a engineer who became a pilot whose duty it was to fly a plane full of bombs to drop on targets in germany.
it ok. ryo understand you neh.

The genius isn't mine

When i was a young infantry soldier, I was assigned to be the CO's RTO and received quite a bit of training on the use of various radios, TACSAT devices, GPS, troubleshooting, and field expedient methods. It was a shitty job in Panama, as I weighed 148 and my ruck weighed 146 going into the last FTX, but you really learn a lot about battlefield command and leadership when you're nearly always one step to the left and one step to the rear of your Company Commander.

and need to construct a basic dipole antenna, fed by a coaxial cable from the transmitter or transceiver-----

You will need enough single conductor wire that can be cannibalized from any source, and a length measuring device, and you will need to know the operating frequency of the radio transmitter.

You then use the following simple formula to determine the length required:

468 divided by the frequency in megahertz

Each side of the dipole is cut to one half that length, and the two sides are connected to a non-conductive center piece, like a tounge depressor or piece of plastic. The antenna side of the coaxial cable is then opened and the center conductor is connected to one side of the dipole and the shield is connected to the other side of the dipole. Stretch the dipole out on the ground lengthwise and hoist the dipole ends up into some trees as far as the coaxial cable will allow. You will transmit and receive very efficiently IF you used the formula correctly.

And if you know the Azimuth to the distant receiver you may orient the antenna broadside to it. -.-K

So it's a half-wavelength antenna? How does the half and quarter wavelength formula work for a Frequency Hopping radio like the SINCGARS or ASIPS? Our field expedient is called a 292 and it forms a triangle. It's a quicker way to get comms in the woods than putting up an OE-254 mast antenna and works just about as well.

Sounds like those radios may be VHF or UHF, but the formula would be the same FOR A DIPOLE.
A "triangle" shape antenna is called a Delta Loop, and a square or rectangle shape is called a [plain] Loop. A quarter wave is usually a Vertical with drooping "radials" called a ground plane. My guess is your triangle is what we call a mini-quad loop--a dipole folded into a delta shape. At VHF or UHF frequencies, it would be compact and portable.

If you want to design an antenna that does not require a tuning device, you need the formulas, and you need to cut the elements very accurately.
The goal is to have the coaxial cable impedance, match the input impedance of the antenna as closely as possible[like the following: coax impedance = 52 ohms, and input impedance of a dipole = 75 ohms] so you can obtain maximum power transfer from transmitter to antenna.
For a frequency hopper, it really depends on the width of the frequency excursions. Antennas can be broad banded, but it is more likely that the transmitter, itself is broad banded into the coax/antenna load.

but over the last 53 years, I have experienced strange and wonderful results even off the ends. It probably has to do with the height above ground producing certain kinds of pattern lobes that I never expected to get.

with a simple ground wire laid along the azimuth to the receiving station. Not as good as our "tree five fours" (get it, like an OE 254, but put up in a tree. Get it? I've lost a few canteens putting those fuckers up.

That is correct. Off the top of my head I think the freq measured in length of the dipole above the earth makes it directional. If you have several stations in the net or if you're calling CQ you wouldn't necessarily want it to be directional. Besides that I never could find a tree tall enough do make it directional. Another practical theory is the same measurement but point the antenna wire at the target receiver then offset it by 45degrees (longwire).
To answer runawys question the RC-292 will not match the freq in freq hopping mode but the transmitter and receiver system takes the broadest portion of the antenna and applies it. A quarter wave vertical is simple but not practical when you must cover numerous freq's with a civilian xmtr. With a RC-292 we used to put it in a 3up and 4down (elements)for an all around system. Don't know what they do now.

about 3 week ago ryo and LLE san were having a spirited discussion about a picture that samD post. it was picture of the ME 262 Swallow two seat night fighter and LLE and self were debating about the type of antenna show in the picture. this is actual how LLE and became friends neh. ryo could not make out the antenna very well because was old black and white photo of the plane from behind and to the side so the antenna on nose was not shown very well. so ryo go to this site that new about to look up and post another picture of a similar plane to show that this was a radar antenna and not what LLE say it was. he said that it had to be a Yagi/Uda type antenna and ryo was thinking it was the antenna for the Lichtenstein radar because this was a ME 262 B1 A Swallow Night Fighter. well it turn out that it was the exact same plane with the same tail number. it also turn out that LLE was right about the first picture and ryo was right too only about the second picture. apparently this particular plane must have been used for a research platform because it was the same plane but the antennae were different in the two picture. LLE complimented me on the picture that was able to find. and the write up that ryo did with it. ryo worked over 3 hour on that write up too just to make sure everything was documented and to the letter correct because knew that LLE was not going to accept anything else. then LLE started being nice and ryo started being nice and we get along fine now. thanks to his interest in ham radio! and ryo not know anything about ham radio but did know a great deal about the Swallow Jet Fighter.
so it turn out that victor chan's wife is also a ham radio operator and runawaygun had done similar work in the army in Panama. so now ryo have interest in learning about ham radio. it just going to have to wait for awhile cause am doing study of ballistic coefficient and how the math for this works and practical design application too, and still have to finish two article that self and little brother are working on for Gunslot.
up above in this topic LLE give very nice compliment about ryo's grades. anyway, ryo thank goodness that there are ham radio people here and that by chance LLE is one of them.
