Trig TT22 transponder issues by Echo
Installed my transponder this off season, passed the transponder check to make it legal. First flight with it yesterday. Called the local controlling agency to check it out. They had nothing on me, but they did once I cycled the transponder off and back on. I then realized that where the "ALT"...

We have a 1987 Cobra Trailer that had its brakes fried. Crew forgot to release brake. Does anyone know how to remove the brake drum? Newer Cobras have a Allen bolt that when removed the entire assembly come off. This trailer does not have that. Any input is helpful. Colin Mead

Oudie IGC spurious RF emissions by Evan Dosik
My Oudie IGC will too often break the squelch with a hideous noise on both my panel radio (an old Dittel) and also most any handheld that comes within about 12" of the Oudie. Anyone else seeing this issue? Thanks, Evan 6E

CAI 302 startup noises? by Echo
After powering up today, I noticed something from the 302's speaker that seems new. Could have been there all along and I'm just noticing, but seems odd to me. After the wind up and wind down audio vario sound, maybe 3-5 seconds later, there's a single LOUD tone lasting about one second. The heck...

OLC - Often a Lost Cause by Dan Marotta
Yesterday I flew with Uli Neumann in his Caproni A-21 S, and what fun we had! Uli, who flies out of South Carolina, said happily, "This is almost like cheating!" We made a simple 300k triangle with very few turns and then retired to my home for a beer and cheese burger (thanks,...

A Tale of Two Takeoffs by [email protected]
I have a secret. Well, like secrets in a Congressional Intelligence subcommittee, this one is probably known by several hundred people. But I haven’t written about it. Until now. But first, the lead in. A few days ago on the last day at the Cordele nationals, I dropped a wing on takeoff. The...

Splittng a GPS antenna to multiple devices by JS
Didn't want to further derail the thread about Trig TN72. This thread has been up before? It is possible and functional to use one GPS antenna for multiple GPS receivers. If you use GPS antennas that will only accept power of 3V you must put DC blockers on all but one receiver. The one receiver...

Gap seals effectiveness study? by Bret Hess
Hi, we see lots of mylar gap seals and read lots of discussion of them. Does anyone know of an engineering study that quantifies their effect on sailplane wings or other wings? Nothing pops up quickly in Google. I'm wondering how much science there is to this practice. I'm hoping for more than...

most comfortable parachute ? by S9
Hey all, I've been flying with a Security 150 for quite a while. It is most comfortable. I tried a Security 350 and it is most uncomfortable. It's time to replace the 150. What chute do you suggest that is very comfortable for those 5+ hour flights? Thanks Steve
