We are saddened and distracted by the terrible fires just to our North in our hometown. In the first night the fire consumed six of our past and present family homes, and these were miles apart. Many of our family and friends are now homeless, and the flames are still burning. Many of our childhood places are gone. It is very hard to believe. The smoke here, even 50 miles away, is significant, and some of the flames are not very far away from our location.
This has distracted us from our production and we apologize for this extra delay in filling orders.
We will be at Pacificon again this year. My wife has the Premiere Jewelry booth (a new company for her), you may find me there at times. I will also be selling in the flea market, I may be able to bring some launcher product as well as some good stuff from the garage to sell. Come by and say hi!
We have reached that part of the calendar where preparations for Field Day 2013 must get underway. We are working now on shipping all current orders well before Field Day. Launcher orders placed during June will wait until July to be prepared and shipped.

New Launching Video
Jack (K6JEB) sent me an email today with a link to a new YouTube Antenna Launching Video! Apparently Jack and Peter (W6DEI) helped Rich (K6YR) put up a high 40 meter doublet with Jack’s CSV19 Launcher. This CSV19 launcher was assembled by Ron (KD6ERS) from one of my kits. Video is by Peter and his GoPro.
We shipped a lot of orders last week, and ran out of some parts. We made a lot of parts this weekend and will be shipping most of the remaining orders this week. Thanks for your patience!
