Excellent work Rich!
Looking forward to seeing it at the April 7th meeting.

Hi, All -
The fully-automatic bug project is moving along, this time with a design that I call the QuadraBug. It is so-called because it uses a compound pendulum, with elements that are in a quadrature arrangement. I had been calling it the OrthoBug (because of the orthogonal relationship), but that sounded too much like an insecticide. I have uploaded some photos to the
Photos section (under WB9LPU's Stuff), and there is a video on YouTube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=STCHW5SA92o where you can hear and see it in operation.
Another version of the bug is also working (see the last photo), and I am planning a video and write-up as time permits.
