Default Barographs?

Anyone have a Barograph or two sitting on a shelf collecting dust? I
would like to put one or two of these relics back into service
generating FAI Badges. Replogle preferred as that is what I have
experience with, however I'll consider any other model. Thanks!

I've got an old Replogle you can have. Contact me off line at jcarlyle
at interserv dot com.

Now you're spoiling the whole "retro" experience with modern
technology! He should be made to smoke foils and learn how to seal
them without blowing the trace away.

I have an OK brand on the shelf that uses smoked foil. And yes my
first 500K was blown away when the official observer hit it too hard
with the hairspray. Had to go back and fly it again.

i actually would really love to use a smoke barograph, i just don't
have one.

Maybe I should try to find one for use in my upcoming gold and diamond
attempts.

Club lore here is of one fellow who rummaged around in the trunk of
his car for the spray can of stuff to seal the barograph. turns out
he grabbed a can of carb cleaner in the dark. bye bye trace.

Of course, you will have to bungee launch off a hill in a primary
glider attached to your barograph...with a Model T as a retrieve
vehicle.

In otherwords, why bother? We pay a lot of tax money to support the
GPS system, get some use out of it!

And be sure to check the SSA site for the recording requirements for
badge flights - barographs are only valid for badge altitude or time
claims, or badge distance without turnpoints.

Probably a lot easier to ask around and borrow a proper GPS logger -
you will definitely make the badge lady happier, and get to relive the
flight via SeeYou afterwards - and let us enjoy it on OLC!

Cheers,

Kirk,

I've got a loaner Cambridge 25 in the Cherokee which I really love.
But Leah's cherokee has no such device and there are a few guys in the
club who are barograph free not to mention the club itself only has 1
barograph but 3 gliders. I just like the idea of having a few
barographs around in case one of my students or friends are going
flying on a day where a badge leg or state record could be claimed.

Bah, save yourself a ton of trouble. Buy a self-contained unit like
the ewMicroRecorder. Its perfect for a club setting, has an internal
battery, a simple on-off switch (and no other complications), and
requires just a standard USB cable (or SD card reader) to download
your flight. If you want to get "fancy" you can hook it up to a PDA
for a moving-map navigation system; but if you just want to log
flights you only need what comes in the box!

Take care,

--Noel

i just saw one used on W&W. Based on what I paid for my last Replogle
we could have 8 barographs ready to go in club ships, privately owned
single seaters, whatever, for the price of one EW.
