Re: Another full suspension build

it's not a clear video, but based on the phase to phase spacing of the conductors, it doesn't look like they are transmission lines, but distribution lines. If they were 345kV, then the phase to phase would be around 10 feet apart. My guess is 60kV distribution lines. Nice - I am learning something...

Re: Why my lights, tv, and everything else isn’t flickering.

Basically true. There are various Android apps that you can download that will allow you to change your sampling rate on the camera. With this you can tune in the flickering. See a harmonic of it. ... What most people forget about power transmission is that it happens at an extremely high voltage. T...
