Agreed. Not to hijack Rick, but are you into anymore testing or projects?

Yes, I intend to do some more testing. I dropped my anemometer and it stopped working. I ordered a new one and only realized after I clicked submit that it would be shipped from China and arrive at the end of the month. Soooooo, it will be a while till I am ready to test unless someone wants to donate a used one .
  I have a 4 layer trap screen design insert, a tubular screen design insert, same as a pop can design but made with screen, a 6 layer zero pass,  a pop can insert with 1 inch holes, a pop can insert with both ends opened, a pop can insert, both ends open, with an untested turbulator insert design to greatly reduce the laminar effect and that fits in each individual can. ( it only restricts air flow 3% over all against an open ended can design)
   I would like to test a two layer copper screen and Phifer Suntex 90 (blocks up to 90 % of suns heat)  against the standard 2 layer aluminum screen.


Other than that, I have nothing to do. If anyone would like to donate any type of absorber material and a design type I will build it to spects and test it. My test boxes are 21"x40" I hate to ask for donations but I have lots of spare time and very little work and income at this time.
