Default Close call with Funtana WMV Video

Didn't realize how close we had come until I got home and was importing the video. Good thing I record on the ground, I wouldn't have had a tape to look at if we had hit. The camera is a Panasonic cx-161 mounted underneath the front of a senior telemaster with a YS .63 supercharged 4 stroke for power. I have always liked being able to see the prop.

Enjoy,
Matt

Ya gotta love when you get the close calls on tape.

Jsonin (another member on the board here) has a lot of really great close calls posted somewhere.

From the video it looks like he swerved first

yeah mike, just another 3 seconds and you would have gotten the same near collision on digital video rather then me having to record it on VHS, put it on the digital video camera, then firewiring it into my computer. Oh well... I ordered a couple antennas for this weekend, that 100 minimum sucks. I got my wide angle camera ready to go and I am making the A/B switch tomorrow that will work off the pulse width of my gear channel.

I just found out about the $100 minimum recently. That does bite!
You will get better results with that patch though!

I also think I need to order a new receiver. I like the looks of the one you had and it seems to pull signals out of the mud better. I purchased mine from matco a couple years ago. Mine works awesome IF you use the pre-amp I have from california amplifier.
