  1. That makes sense.  I wonder if "reflectors " or repeaters could be positioned inside the twists snd turns of a large mine to extend the range of the 2.4 GHz signal. 

    I would imagine that most any rough, rock surface would attenuate transmission back and forth.

  2. Will a drone lose  comm if line of sight is dissrupted to the transciever?

    Going straight down a shaft is one thing, but wouldn't it get chancy if the adit took a turn or two?

    It sounds like Swellbelly Hillbeaver is intimidated by knowledge and experience. So much so that he can't stop the childish insults and name calling.

    Grow up man.

    I was sticking up for you( your knowledge of geology is inspiring) and trying to complement you at the same time.

    No attempt at insult.

    May be I  have the wrong god. Would Poseidon be more suited since he was god of the underworld, and, rocks are , well, formed underground?

    This old log cabin is in the mining area of South Pass Wyoming. Several years ago I was kind off pushing the season heading north so stopped at South Pass City to wait for the weather to warm up. 



    1979 copright ,,," BENDIGO SHAFTER" is a fictional novel by Louis L'Amour of this very area of the Continental Divide.

    Highly rec'd reading.

    I have all his books. He has never let me down...........

    Pg 5..."   "Yes ma"am. I glanced about the bench. " I have come to build you a cabin  then."

         " Build it so when  spring comes I can add a long room on the south, for when the wagons roll again I shall open a trading post."

          She turned to Bud, who had come up the slope from the meadow.  "You will help Mr. Shafter and learn from him.  It is not every man who can build a house."

         Ruth Macken had a way of making a man feel large in his tracks,  so what could I do but better than my best?

         The morning chill spoke of winter coming, yet I notched each log with care and trimmed them with smooth, even blows...."

    So, the yellow stone scratch the quartz, the same and the diamond, so the yellow stone is for sure 7,5 to 8...

    My vote is for topaz:ya: since it scratches your quartz.

    Bytownite should not do that based on the Mohs hardness scale.

    But scratch tests can be deceptive if your examination is not critical.

    Make sure you breath(e) every 80 seconds:)
