Hunting deer by helicopter Acclimatisation The acclimatisation movement, which encouraged the introduction of plants and animals from other countries, was fashionable worldwide in the late 19th century. Many plants and animals were introduced to New Zealand, including more than 50 mammal species. Not all of these acclimatised — but those that did often had a harmful impact on an environment with no native land mammals.
It describes an incident that happened on September 4, My 6-element vertical array is described on a number of web pages. The vertical is not free-standing, a single set of guy lines supports the aluminum tubing.
It's not enough to build and set up an antenna system, you have to keep it maintained. With 6 verticals, I always wondered and worried about the first failure. When would I look out and see something less than 6 verticals?
My first assumption was that a vertical would fail due to a design flaw. Some part of the vertical would be under more stress than expected, and then fail. Coming in a close second was a construction flaw.
Perhaps a bolt was not tight enough, or, a knot would give way and fail. My third concern was vandalism. Although I live in a rural area, and the array is removed from the street, and hidden behind a number of trees, a few seconds of vandalism could bring down all 6 verticals with very little effort.
During the early morning hours of September 4,I woke up, and decided to turn on the radio to check for DX. As I rotated the array, I did not see the normal front to back ratio, which can be over 20 dB.
I then applied some power to the array, and observed the SWR on both 80 and 40 meters as I rotated the antenna through its six directions. At the target frequencies, the SWR is low, and, in particular, the same in all 6 directions. I found that the SWR was higher than expected, and moved up and down as I changed directions.
But, it was 3: When I got up, I went to the window that faces towards the array. As feared, I saw 5 verticals, not 6. It seemed to be bent in half, which I certainly didn't expect.
I had always assumed that any element failure would require a guy line failure. When I got to the element, I immediately checked the three guy lines, and all were in place.
Now I had two facts that didn't make sense - the element was bent in half, and all three guy lines were in place. Here is a picture of how I found the element. Please click on the picture for a larger view.
Failed Vertical A fourth rope is attached to the vertical. It is a pull rope that is used to raise and lower the vertical. During normal operation, the rope simply hangs down the side of the vertical, and the slack is hung from a cleat on the vertical wooden base.
It started to become clear that the vertical failed because this rope was pulled away from the base of the vertical. This caused the vertical to buckle. At some point, the bottom broke free from the hinge at the base.Nov 15, · Iceland Is Growing New Forests for the First Time in 1, Years | Short Film Showcase - Duration: National Geographic 1,, views.
May 28, · Easily, Doctor Strange is my favorite Marvel movie and one of my favorite action flicks. I love that this movie combines the idea of a superhero with Eastern ancient philosophy.
I have also been drawn to Eastern culture and “new age” ideas for the past several years so this movie really spoke to me. CA INTRODUCTION TO BUDDHISM As a One of the most difficult aspects of shot placement on a deer is locating the vitals and avoiding the shoulder especially when bowhunting Angles from tree stands and Just one day after Hurricane Harvey made landfall in southeastern Texas.
Alces alces an introduction to the strange deer. Introduction to Deer. Deer are ruminant mammals belonging to the family Cervidae. This family classification include well known animals like the Moose, Red Deer, Reindeer, Roe and Chital among others.
All male deer have antlers, with the exception of the Chinese Water Deer, which have tusks.
This is a characteristic very specific of deer that. Deer are part of the Cervidae family that include moose, reindeer, elk and other species.
Male deer grow new antlers each year. Animals such as antelope resemble deer in a number of ways but have horns instead of antlers, the difference being that horns are not grown and replaced like antlers are.
