Things we need!

### <a name="Launch Tower Computer"></a> Launch Tower Computer

- U bolts that fit the LTC box, or route out the LTC box holes. Since U bolt spacing is often unpredictable, slightly elongating holes is usually done, **or even bending the bolt slightly.**
- N connector screw down cap w/chain for LTC external N connector. Since the Orinoco board is possibly operating with the cap on, it may be best to use a 50 ohm terminator cap with chain such as PE6062-50. I understand the Orinoco is only "loosely coupled" to the connector, so an open cap (not shorted) such as PE6016 might also work well.
- Longer, better cabling for igniter cable
- Replace terminal block with a strip of euroterminal blocks (on breadboard?) Look at Phoenix contact terminal blocks that mount to DIN rails. (e.g. Phoenix Contact product FLKM-40)
- Consider using CGB type glands for cables penetrating through liquid tight enclosure (or round AMP connectors)

## <a name="RF Equipment"></a> RF Equipment

- 1x N-Male to N-Female right angle adapter (PE9086)
- 1x N-Male to N-Male barrel adapter (PE9007)
- 1x N-Male to N-Male RG142 patch cable 24 inch long (PE3455-24)
- 2x Orinoco to N-Male cables.. or Orinoco to RG316 connectors. Pasternack MC-Card connector (PE44308 right angle) or (PE44309 straight)
- Another 1.277GHz ATV TX and PIC
- brass rivets for CPA "plated through holes"
- 1x (or 2x ?) 6.5 dB attenuator SMA-Male to SMA-Female low power -or- **build this right onto the amplifier board.**
