Self Levelling Radar Mount - Backstay - Fwd (F) Made specifically for Sitex & Simrad Domes

Our Self-Levelling Backstay Mount ensures your radar stays level with the horizon at all times for optimum antenna performance. As the boat heels or rolls, the radar is kept horizontal preventing target loss and giving the best possible radar picture.

Using our own fine-tuned hydraulic damping system, the radar mount reacts to major changes in heel angle of the boat whilst eliminating all small oscillations.

Features:

  • Hydraulic damping to eliminate minor oscillations
  • Sealed system - entirely maintenance free
  • Passive system - no power required
  • Lightweight head unit - reduced weight aloft
  • Stainless radome cradle with fine tune adjustment for backstay angle - suitable for any yacht
  • Nylon backstay bushing supplied - clamps around backstay allowing cable tension to be adjusted
    Dimensions:

    • 2.6m pole - supplied in lengths of 1.3m
    • Additional 0.6m and 1.3m lengths available

    Materials:

    • Finest quality machined and anodised aluminium pole and head unit - lasts the lifetime of your yacht
    • Marine grade 316 stainless steel cradle and base plate

    Kit includes

    • 1 x Levelling mount with integral backstay bushes (to fit 7, 8, 10 and 12mm diameter backstay cables)
    • 2 x 1.3m lengths of mounting pole

Too Close for Comfort: About Half of Fracking Wells 2 to 3 km From Domestic Groundwater Systems

If you live in a city, you may take the safety of the water that you drink for granted, although recent developments in Flint may have changed your mind about that. But for 45 million Americans who drink water that comes from private wells, drawn from groundwater and unregulated by a public utility, the question of what's in that water is an even bigger unknown—a potentially dangerous one. In 2016, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) released a report indicating that supplies of drinking water near hydraulic-fracturing or fracking sites are more likely to be affected by contamination events. Scott Jasechko and Debra Perrone, Researchers at the University of California Santa Barbara, wanted to find out just how many privately-owned groundwater wells might be at risk.

In-Home Water Testing: A Talk With the Creator of Tap Score by SimpleWater

In the wake of various water quality crises from Flint, Michigan and Puerto Rico, there is a growing interest and demand among consumers for home water testing. Enter DIY water testing kits like Tap Score by SimpleWater . Tap Score in particular was conceived of and launched by former UC Berkeley grad student John Pujol and co-founder and CTO Julio Rodriguez. “In 2015 we began testing small and rural communities for arsenic in their water,” Pujol explains. “We found it much more frequently than we expected, and also discovered that people in these towns greatly appreciated someone telling them what was in their water and how to fix it.

Hidden Underground Nitrate Pollution Threatens Groundwater Worldwide

For most of us, when we think of nitrate and agricultural pollution, we think of the nitrate that comes from fertilizers and leaches quickly through the soil. The effects of this kind of pollution are realized quickly, but researchers from Lancaster University and the British Geological Survey have recently revealed an underground time bomb of nitrate in rock. In the recent paper , lead author and hydrogeologist Matthew Ascott and the team quantified the vast amounts of nitrate that exist within the layers of rock between the soil and groundwater tables for the first time. They discovered that there is about twice as much nitrate lurking in this rocky vadose zone than there is in the soil—up to 180 million tons—nitrate that has been omitted from global scale nitrogen budgets.
