    Alessandro, you are correct, otherwise-
    "Errare humanum est, sed in errare perseverare diabolicum."
    A maxim meaning that to make mistakes is a common (and by implication forgivable) human attribute, but to persist in making the same mistake is a personal or moral flaw (and by implication less forgivable).
    Can this also be applied to AI?
    Don't be too hard on Stephen, suus non sua culpa, it's the AI's fault!

    Only the 'good things' come in 3s.
    Bad things seem to have no limit at the moment.
    Or was it always so?

    Not only this question is questionable but the alleged correct answer is highly so!
    Close reach ~= Close hauled; i.e. the wind is off the bow, P or S.
    The AI Stephen is using was obviously never a sailor.๐Ÿค”
    I (like the majority) plumped for Running, as being the only option where the wind is off the stern.
    Hey ho!

    Hi Zooma,
    It would help if you answered my question: What format are the pictures?
    Also the size of the files may be a factor.
    Without such info we don't have a snowballs chance in Hell to help you๐Ÿค”
    Alternatively you can email them to me. If necessary I will convert them.
    PM sent with my email address.

    Hi Zooma.
    It may be the format of your pictures.
    The file ending (last 3 letters after the .) should be .jpg.
    What is it on your pics? You may need to convert them, just 'save' as .jpg or .jpeg.

    Colin, That is my choice since discovering Ezekote some years ago.
    Fortunately I can get mine here in Germany from Krick.
    I thin it with ~20% water so that it soaks into the wood.
    Especially for balsa, soaks in and strengthens it.
    Then a coat or two of neat Ezekote, no glass on ply, maybe tissue inside and out on balsa for added 'ding' resistance.

    Good one Ron ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿคฃ
    Nearly fell off my chair laughing๐Ÿ˜‰
    I couldn't see that as a radar antenna dish, proportions all wrong re the 'lump' in the middle, where the receiver detector/waveguide would be on a real antenna and the collator which collects and directs the signal to the central detector is missing. In TX mode it would project the signal to the dish to be collimated and transmitted.
    Certainly no antenna I'd ever seen be it on ship or land, and believe me I've seen some.
    If you want to use them as antenna parts best I can suggest is a ground plane at the base of a VHF monopole antenna (e.g. VHF Marine Mobile), inverted disk, i.e. rounding down towards the edge.
    I was about to ask you for the dimensions and where you found them.
    My first thought was parts of a model car wheel hub.
    But you might be better off having them gold plated and made into a pair of cufflinks๐Ÿ˜‰
