    This was just too good to pass up....



    Ray & Bubba (Tennessee mechanical engineers and ham radio operators) were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking up and trying to figure out the best way to make a 20 meter stealth vertical out of it.


    A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.

    "We're supposed to find the height of the flagpole," said Bubba, "but we don't have a ladder."

    The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a few bolts, and laid the flag pole down.


    Then she took a tape measure from her pocket, took a measurement, announced, "Eighteen feet, six inches," and walked away.

    Ray shook his head and laughed. "Ain't that just like a woman!"


    "We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"

    Bubba and Ray are currently working for the federal government designing totally invisible towers for long range communications.
    They are experiencing great difficulty in seeing the tower sections and putting them together!

    OH Come On! They would have hired 25 people to stand on each other's shoulders and measured it the right way.

    Oh yes they would. They'd find a county like Luzerne to borrow the money to get it done. I mean how bad can the interest be on $20,000,000.
