    Re: Lights etc. - aluminum foil in mast

    Brooke-
     
    
     Are you saying the commercial market has totally missed such an inexpensive 
    solution? Last time I heard tests there were two types, one something about 
    spheres and layers like an onion, the other the plain "disposable" David foil 
    on cardboard model, using the corner reflector theory.
    
     The tests I'd heard all pointed to the corner reflector, when hung free and 
    allowed some motion. Surely there is some reason three simple wires weren't 
    proposed as a low-windage alternative?
