Welcome to Alan Biocca Engineering. Our most popular products are Pneumatic Antenna Launchers and Triple Ratio Baluns. We offer Assembled and Kit Launchers, components and Free Plans as well as Balun Kits.
Yes! Finally we have some new Tennis Ball Barrel Material. This material is white, cleans up nicely, and will not need to be painted unless a different color is required. The material is new but stored outside (before we get it), so it needs some cleanup (but it does not have sun damage). A little scrubbing with a pot scouring pad works wonders! We will continue to paint the assembled launcher barrels blue, but kits and parts will be shipped unpainted.
The Rubbermaid 10 Gallon “Roughneck” Totes are again available, thanks to Lowe’s hardware. The CSV19 was designed to fit in this tote, so of course they were discontinued – but Lowe’s has exclusively brought them back, and the cost is reasonable. If they are not in stock, Lowe’s can order them for you. Link. Thanks to Barry K6ST for this research. We have a few here but they are bulky and expensive to ship, so finding them locally is good.
We had a nice shake here from the 5.6 quake near San Jose. We’re a bit North of that, it was not strong but it lasted quite a while. No damage here that we know of.
We have found a new supplier for SDR21, hopefully we will have more in a few days. This PVC will be white, and if it is in good shape we won’t need to paint it.
