METEORITE HUNTING and COLLECTING

For Discussion related to hunting and collecting of Meteorites With or Without a Metal Detector


Meteorite Forum Guidelines

There are just a few rules here and yup I do enforce them and keep an eye on things as best I can. Here are a few guidelines I'd like you to follow if you will be participating here. This forum is not moderated as heavily as the other sections so please do not enter or open a topic if you think you will be offended. If you are at least respond like an adult or we will remove your post as soon as brought to our attention.

Vulgar and abusive language is not welcome here! Heck a cuss word to get a point across is not so bad, but I think you know what I mean.

I will not host public arguments and pissing matches between individuals here so please just don't do it. When it happens the post most times will simply vanish into cyber space.

Political or Religious posts belong in "Off Topic" but surly you can find other forums that host those discussions if it is your thing, I don't think anyone cares if you are Conservative or Liberal when we are out hunting gold nuggets.

You may not use this forum to advertise any other dealer, store, or product without written permission by owner at any time. Used items are allowed in the classified section.

This forum is not responsible for anything said by it's members at any time. This is a public forum and will remain so and although I can and will occasionally zap "bad content" I don't do it often and so far have never permanently banned a person. Also opinions expressed here do not always represent the opinion of the forum's owner!

Guests are welcome to browse the forum and use the information provided by registered members, but you can not post yourself until you are a registered member.

That is pretty much it my fellow Nugget Shooters so enjoy the forum, keep it clean and play nice.

Well the rules here are a bit different as I welcome meteorites for sale you have collected or found yourself, but no store or dealer ads at any time and this includes eBay links! Naturally the main reason for this forum is education, but collecting is also a big part of this subject. So No crappy or degrading posts or they will be deleted, other than that post away!

    • Elon Musk never releases a lot of details about his products. I was reading on this yesterday, and he has petitioned or requested the FCC grant him licenses for mobile station. The license he has now for 1 million users is for stationary only.  When you buy your equipment from him, it is tagged with your GPS location, and if you leave this location, the equipment automatically shuts down.  There is no mobile transmitter now, and what I read does not make it seem like the price would be what us mere mortals would be able to afford once it is mobile. Right now, in the Phoenix valley, you can be part of his beta program which will start sometime mid-year.  Enter your zip-code at the starlink website, you might be able to start now.  You pay $500 for equipment, and subscription is $100 per month.  The goal is 150 MBPs. Those that are using it now have spotty coverage, mostly because it is beta testing without enough satellites up.  Others have gotten up to 175 MBPs. If out of Beta testing prices remain the same, if the connection is reliable at 150 MBPS, that would be three times the speed I get from my internet provider at two thirds the cost. I really was looking at it for the RV.  The dish that comes with Starlink is supposed to be 23", which is smaller than the other satellite internet dishes I looked at.  Since these Starlink satellites are low earth orbit satellites, you would not be pointing this at a geostationary satellite like the ones I've used with the government.  There's another article about someone sacrificing their startlink dish and tearing it apart, but they really did not find the how it works from the components, but they did guess that it used phased array radio transmission, which would focus the transmission beam in a certain direction, and would be able to move from satellite to satellite pretty quickly and this is all aimed electronically and not mechanically.  If that's true, aiming the dish would be easy. I've seen a few things on users buying a Hughes net or via sat system and installing themselves on an RV, and if that is true (I've never seen one myself and both companies claim stationary use) that may be available now.
    • Happy Birthday. Have a good one.
    • Starlink is supposed to have an RV package for RV's, trucks, ships and planes this year.  This will allow prospectors and miners an even longer leash. You can have it all with Starlink, Youtube TV (or Hulu, etc,) and VOIP. https://www.theverge.com/2021/4/16/22388378/elon-musk-starlink-satellite-internet-service-moving-vehicles-trucks-2021 https://www.starlink.com/
    • Happy Birthday @hardtimehermit, I hope you have a great day!
