Cow Country Lorie Darlin' |
|Cow Country Lorie Darlin'Please meet our latest addition to the Animal House, Cow Country Lorie Darlin'. Lorie is an English Jack Russel Terrier, a Shorty Jack. She was born on 5/2/13 and was bred by my good friend Tina Whitfield of Cow Country Shorty Jacks in Throckmoroton Texas. Lorie will be a broken coat and is a black tri. She should be about 9 to 9.5 inches and 9 to 12 pounds. After loosing our Molly this year, the last thing we wanted was another dog. But then the house became too quiet. Molly was our Alpha dog and up until her death, she was always so full of life. After a few days, I broke down and just couldn't take it anymore. My search began for that dog that could fill our house with the excitment that only a Terrier can bring. During my search, I found Tina. After throughly going over her website many times, I finally made that call to tell her our story about Molly. We know there will never be another Molly,but we also knew in our hearts that only a JRT would be able to take her place. After listening to my story describing our Molly, Tina put me on one of her upcoming litter list. So the wait begins for our baby to be born. While waiting on that litter to be whelped, I was watching her updated weekly litter pictures of her other puppies. I saw this one puppy every week, but that week was different, I knew, that was "OUR PUPPY"!:) I couldn't get on the phone fast enough to call Tina and find out if she was still available. She was and yes, we could have her. There was something about her that said,"Here I am, I have been waiting for you". I had originally wanted a smooth coat and a red/white. But when that right dog comes along, it doesn't matter what the coat type is or what color it is, you just know that is the one. She is everything we dreamed she would be and then some. I can never thank Tina enough for breeding such an amazing dog. We are thrilled beyond words that she is finally home and she is truly ours. We look forward to many happy years together with lots of stories to share. Our house truly feels like home again.:)||370 Visits|
Our Cats (June 9 2013)|

Update-Hi-Mee has bi-laterial Grade 4 and Grade 2 Patellas.Here is the link to his OFA Report
He had surgery on 2/3/09 and 2/13/09.Hi-Mee is neutered and microchipped.
Meet our sweet girl,Jezebel.She was born around the first week of October 2010.Jezebel is a precious little stray kitten that Hubby and I fell in love with so here she will stay.Jezebel is named after the 1938 Warner Bros. Film Jezebel which features Bette Davis as Jezebel.Our Jezebel has Bette Davis eyes.Jezebel is spayed and microchipped.

That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with a cat it would improve man,

H-Stack UHF Hourglass-Loop + 15RR (11 Jul 2014)|
|UHF Horizontally Stacked Hourglass-Loops with 15 Reflector Rods analyzed using 4nec2 where|
nikiml's Python Optimization Scripts were used to Optimize dimensions, incuding the HHH (Hollands Horizontal Harness).
UHF Quad-Trapezoid-Loop+2xBars (11 Jul 2014)|
UHF Quad-Trapezoid-Loop + 2 Bar Elements analyzed using 4nec2.
Formed by adding outer parts of Chireix 2-Square Antenna to an Hourglass-Loop.
Two versions analyzed: Quad-Trap+2xBars (NO Reflector) and Quad-Trap+2xBars (15 RR).
a) Quad-Trapezoid-Loop+2xBars (NO Refl):
UHF Raw Gain = 6.6 to 9.4 dBi, SWR (300-ohms) under 1.8 and Bandwidth = 80 to 60-degrees.
b) Quad-Trapezoid-Loop+2xBars + 15 Reflector Rods: [T.B.D.]

Old CM4228 with Hollands Horiz Harness (3 Jul 2014)|
|Old CM4228 with Hollands Horizontal Harness (HHH) replacing the Original Harness analyzed using 4nec2.|
Dimensions of HHH OPTIMIZED using nikiml's Python Control Scripts were the WIDTH of the Feedline
and X-Axis SEPARATION from the Center of the Bowties, similar to 2x2 4-Bay (H4) as well as the
Vertically Stacked 4-Bay Antenna designs.
When surveying the "terrain", I noticed that original CM4228a model (posted by Ken Nist on HDTVPrimer)
did NOT include the two 1.25-in Diameter Tubes which support the Bowtie/Feedline structures.
Since HHH could intersect or be influenced by the close proximity, I added Vertical Tubes to MY
CM4228 model, which uses MY ACTUAL MEASUREMENTS. This significantly improved the low
frequency roll-off problem in Ken Nist's model, as shown in Charts. To facilitate Apples-to-Apples
comparisons, I also reran the RF Combiner Mod version.
Two HHH versions were Optimized to determine the "best":
ALT#1 - HHH is In-between Bowties and Reflector, providing best UHF & Hi-VHF performance.
ALT#2 - HHH is In-front of Bowties, included here in case a user prefers that arrangement.
ALT#1 - Optimized Dimensions for HHH In-between Bowties and Reflector:
Xh = - 1.12-in = Separation between Feedlines and Center of Bowties.
Diagonal Wire Lengths, Harness to Feedline = 2.69-in (Top-Left & Bottom-Right) AND = 1.67-in (Bottom-Left & Top-Right).
Yinner = 11.71-in = Y-Axis Distance from Harness to INNER Bowtie Feedline (Top-Left & Bottom-Right).
Youter = 11.71-in = Y-Axis Distance from Harness to OUTER Bowtie Feedline (Bottom-Left & Top-Right).
Each HHH wire Length = 16.07-in + 2 x 0.715-in eyelets on ends = 17.5-in. TOTAL.
Whatever lengths is needed to get around obstacles near attachment screws are to be subtracted
from Harness Length along Y-Axis, maintaining 1.12-in Separation between Harness and Bowties.
UHF Raw Gain = 14.8 to 14.7 to 17.8 dBi, F/B & F/R Min = 21.9 dB and SWR (300-ohms) Under 2.1.
Hi-VHF Raw Gain = 5.0 to 10.4 dBi, Peaky on Ch9, Hi-VHF F/B & F/R Ratio Minimum = 10.3 dB
and SWR (300-ohms) under 5.1.
Still, these are significant improvements over the AS-SHIPPED CM4228 version.
ALT#2 - Optimized Dimensions for HHH In-Front of Bowties:
Gap = 0.92-in (about 1.0-in) = Separation between Feedlines, Xh = -2.21-in = Separation between
Feedlines and Center of Bowties. Diagonal Wire Lengths, Harness to Feedline = 3.18-in
(Top-Left & Bottom-Right) AND = 4.19-in (Bottom-Left & Top-Right).
Yinner = 12.9-in (about 13.0-in) = Y-Axis Distance from Harness to INNER Bowtie Feedline (Top-Left & Bottom-Right).
Youter = 12.9-in (about 13.0-in) = Y-Axis Distance from Harness to OUTER Bowtie Feedline (Bottom-Left & Top-Right).
Each HHH wire Length = 20.27-in + 2 x 0.74-in eyelets on ends = 21.75-in. TOTAL.
UHF Raw Gain = 13.5 to 17.0 dBi, F/B & F/R Min = 19.9 dB and SWR (300-ohms) Under 2.6.
Hi-VHF Raw Gain = 8.7 to 6.4 to 9.3 dBi, but 2.5 dB NULL on Ch9 could be a Problem
Hi-VHF F/B & F/R Ratio Minimum about 10 dB, Except for DIP on Ch9 and SWR (300-ohms) = 24.2 to 2.3 to 4.4.
Although significantly lower Gain than ALT#1, these are small improvements over AS-SHIPPED CM4228 version.
PS: Views with Reflector Removed are included to facilitate seeing the HHH.
