After addressing other issues with a new ship, I tackled the Power Flarm early this summer.

Terra 720 issue by [email protected]
My "new" glider has a Terra 720 com. As i understand it, the channels have a 25khz spacing. But, it doesn't seem to transmit/receive on 123.075 (a perfectly fine channel w 25khz spacing), but is fine on 123.3. Thoughts? (I know, i know... Buy a new com).

Tail Dolly Tire by John Cochrane[_3_]
The tail dolly tire is flat again. The last time this happened, it took me bloody forever to get the tire bead off the rim, and back on again, with bicycle tools. (The wheel is one piece and does not come apart.) Somebody else must have figured this out. Short of taking it to a tire store, who has...

Glider EFIS anyone? by [email protected]
Looking at the options for instrumentation for new Light Sport Aircraft, I find most manufacturers to offer a complete glass panel for flight instruments, engine controls, communications and of course navigation. There is nothing round with a pointer to be found and everything requires electrons...

Wishing for clickable US score sheet by Steve Koerner
The score sheet presently has a column identifying only the name of the IGC file for each pilot. That's a good thing, but it's a real pain to then go find and retrieve the file elsewhere. It would be really cool if we could just click the IGC file name to immediately download it for...

Audio recording software? by [email protected]
I have an old spare radio and I was wondering if anyone knew of any PC or Mac based recording software that would only record when the radio received a transmission. I'd like to end up with a relatively short recording which is a summary of the radio traffic for the day. Thanks, Mark
