Subject: RE: Torch Wicks

Message Detail:
Thanks for the suggestions! We used my home-made torch outfit last weekend and managed to communicate over 7 miles - between Pry House at Antietam and the George Washington Monument on South Mountain (both sites of actual SC stations, BTW). Conditions were windy, but we kept the torches lit for about 45 minutes with few problems. We could have done more if only I had remembered to pick up an extra can of kerosene!
This site has been an invaluable resource and building the torches would have been a lot harder without the research and postings by the membership. Thanks to all!
