    I have seen a lot of white flakes coming down the last few days. Is the winter spraying? I haven't been able to see above the clouds.

    They should be a bit higher so it sublimes before it gets to ground level.

    A bunch of guys turned the sprayers off too late coming into Midway and O'Hare.

    After studying the performance charts I decided to upgrade from the 10MM nozzles to the 15MM ones. My pump is large enough to drive the new nozzles but I had to upgrade the manifold valve. This 50% increase will allow higher concentrations when you do the Special High Intensity T-route flying. The gas I’m saving due to faster distribution will allow me to buy more chemical and really cover those key areas.

    Are those the ceramic 15mm nozzles? If so be careful when installing. They are known to crack when tightening. I believe there’s a special tool that reduces the likelihood.

    Are you two violating the Non-Disclosure Agreement you signed?

    Don’t think so. Isn’t this the encrypted portion of POA?

    That extra volume will come in handy with this being an election year and all. Has anyone else gotten their special "Fall 2020" OpSpec packet yet? I was notified that they would be coming out this winter, but I'm getting a bit antsy to see what zones will require extra coverage later this year. I'm guessing they're waiting to see how the first few primaries pan out before setting final specialized targeting coordinates.

    Was Iowa sprayed with the wrong chemical this year? LOL

    Sure but the encryption used is free if you get my drift. It may not be all that good.

    Well, it was either that or ethanol, and drivers flipped out over blue gasoline.

    1. Use new seals on each install (even if you just removed for cleaning;
    2. Use neoprene seals - not the provided (cheap) rubber ones - the neoprene seals better and cushions the nozzles from vibration; and
    3. Tighten only to the low end of the specified torque range (and have you had your torque wrench calibrated lately? They do drift).

    My experience, FWIW.

    The company that developed the defective app is based in Denver. :dunno:

    I thought that the encryption software was developed by Shadow, Inc.

    Ya'll know why those Montana sheep ranchers only wear Levi 501 button-up jeans?

    Because sheep can hear a zipper from a mile away!
