So here are the links to the pics. Someone more technically advanced can post them on my thread better than I can. So here it goes:

Here's a pic of Heavy with the blanks on the driver's side of the master bedroom, one without the window installed and the other with the window:

One pic of the back with the rear blank, the side blanks with the master bedroom window installed:

I can't believe I'm having such frustrations posting pics.

Sorry for the inconvenience of clicking on the links.

Are you a fellow ham perchance?

Looking really good! On Flickr, make sure to copy & paste the "BBC Code" and the pix should show up.

KF5NZM at your service. EXCELLENT observation! Actually the other tower is Rohn 45, with the third being Rohn 25. We're doing commercial experimental applications with FCC approval. Long story there. Comical, but long.

Tango, I'll try that when I have some time later on today to see IF I can get that to work. Thanks for the help!

BTW, Milk, someone changed the "avatar" I originally posted. Oh well......

Tango,

I just tried to find the "BBC Code", zero luck so far. That's what I was looking for the first time. GRRRRRRR

Well, yesterday I went to HF to start her up and *click**click**click* ....

Batteries were dead. Even after starting her up every two weeks the batteries finally gave up the ghost.

Bigger surprise: these batteries are C-8DD batteries. I.E. they are THREE times the size of a regular truck battery EACH!!!!!!

Fortunately, being back to work for Katy ISD, I am able to replace them at school district prices. Granted that's not cheap either, but better than the alternative. So, for $309 total, I'm getting two new C-8DD batteries. They weigh about 100 pounds EACH. I hope I don't get a hernia swapping out these monstrosities.........

Story at 9, film at 11..........

I figure I'll probably want to wire in a quick disconnect where if I'm not gonna be starting and running it for a while I can just kill the juice so I don't come back to a dead starting battery bank.... my only concern is with all the onboard electronics in a 2005 bus, what kind of effect it will have on those (loss of settings, etc).

Nah, they're seven years old. Well within the service life expectancy of such monsters.

These rascals are HEAVY. My son is going to help me this weekend to get them out and new ones in. That's what 15 year olds are for huh?
