    Tell us a little about the battery operated transmitters that are being built by Ham operators and use a key to transmit. I did visit a site earlier this year that I was able to link to via a PM that was sent to me.(No longer have the link ) It showed how a wire line was tossed into the trees and used as an antena. A message was transmitted to everyone and anyone that had their ears on. The person receiving the transmission would then telephone the message to the intended receiver(usually the spouse of the backpacker). The message was something on the order of: I'm OK honey, all is well X O X love and kisses. These little transmitters were being used out west where cell phones are limitted. hi hi hi

    Low power morse code transceivers are quite popular on the trail actually. There is one very popular radio named the "AT Sprint" (guess what the AT stands for?) that was designed by Steve, KD1JV, here in NH who is an advid hiker of the AT.

    Default Last one!!!!!!

    I just relisted the 2 X 2. It's the last one I have left to offer on ebay. That's the bad news. The good news is I've had an idea on how to improve the stove. Different materials etc. Won't have the screw on top . I liked that top!!!!!! The auction has given me some time to ponder it's construction and so it might come out ok in the long run.

    But lucky for me is the fact that, in addition to Zelph being a great stove builder, he is also a gentleman and a scholar. I'll be getting a stove or too soon without worry.

    Zelph rocks!

    (Zelph) that is "Tobias this is sam in Hamese hi hi
    Out here in the PCT land they make both the spirit transmitter, and reciever in altoid mint tins, and uses a thrown long wire (A single wire) about 55 ft long.
    We have a lot of QRP (Low Power) Hambrew (homebuilt) stuff out here.
    Glad you got one.

    phew, just glad it wasn't that Henry dude again hogging all the Zelph's for himself. He must secretly chant "All your Zelph are belong to us" before he lays himself down at night.

    Default prototype

    My thoughts are to team up a 2 X 2 stainless steel pot stand with the "StarLyte" burner.

    Overall dimensions when stand is closed are 2" X 2" X 1"

    Total weight of the two is 16 grams/1/2 ounce+tad (the steel burner and hardware cloth stand weighs 28 grams/1 ounce-a tad))

    The changes are small but powerful. Unit is now fully corrosion resistant.

    The stand is made of stainless steel wire with tubular aluminum hinges.

    The photos are of the prototype not the final. It may change a tad by the weekend.

    Hey guys, I just joined this forum and am getting a hooked on stove building. Granted, I'm a bit late getting in on this discussion, but Zelph, your stove looks fantastic. I want to attempt to replicate it, and have just a couple questions.

    The fill material: Where do you get it and what is it called? I'm only familiar with the pink stuff.
    The fiberglass cover wick: Is that fiberglass cloth for autobody repair? If not, where do you find it?
    The container: Looks like this - http://www.specialtybottle.com/index...ROD&ProdID=309 You mentioned that it is now corrosion proof. Is the container aluminum or still a tin material? I've made a few with the altoid round tins, and they go nasty very fast.

    Thanks, and no worries if no one gets back to this, it's well over a year old.

    For the body try wedding tins, they are aluminum and found at craft stores.
    If you find yourself in a fair fight; your tactics suck.

    Thanks for the compliments.

    Oops56 shows a good example of how to make the stove using an aluminum Wedding tin and some Tiki wick material. You can cover it with stainless steel mesh or fiberglass cloth of the type they use for auto body repair.

    Oop56 also has lots of other interesting things on his website forum called "Oops Creations and Things"

    If you look around in there you'll see a photo of oops with the cast iron frying pan that his wife used on the top of head when he caught the kitchen curtains on fire. It's the frying pan with the hole in it.

    Bumped for those of you interested in small burners with screw on lids. Make your own using carbon felt. Do-it-yourself.

    I eventually improved on the design and came up with this:

    Steve's quite active on this site. Not sharing his screen name in case he wants it private. One of these years I have to get up to his neck of the woods to go hiking, I really want to meet the guy.

    I know a guy who's been active on Summits on the Air.. When he brings up a trailless peak, he sometimes finds himself working a pileup - even occasionally on 146.52, but he often brings a QRP SSB 75/40/20 rig and some sort of lightweight wire antenna.

    ^^^^^^^^="very best regards from Another Kevin", for the uninitiated.
    I always know where I am. I'm right here.
