  1. BACKUP to be sure;teaching a FJC I mention the backup radio as late in the course as I can,fearing the student will shut out the training to be self reliant and hope to rely on the radios. At our DZ the radios remain on untill landing. " 90 right, five miles then cut."---Pukin Buzzards

  10. WOW (a second look at the photos) That was your pretty camo pc ! I have a camo pc like it. It was called pizza-puke. From the rigger who sold it to me (years ago) he said it was Israeli desert camoflage pattern. " 90 right, five miles then cut."---Pukin Buzzards
  11. CONGRATULATIONS ! Glad youre ok,except the ankle. A few questions if you dont mind; What was the main container ? A stylemaster? Was the reserve attached hi or low on the harness(cant tell riser lenth from the photo)above or below the chest strap? is the pc ok? Where were you jumping? sea level ? I quit jumping my conventional(b4)rig in the water fearing the lo mount reserve opening shock would snap my 57 y/o self in half if I needed it. " 90 right, five miles then cut."---Pukin Buzzards

  14. Was there a military version of the pioneer PC ? What was it called ? " 90 right, five miles then cut."---Pukin Buzzards
  15. I too am an old( 56 yo)PC jumper and have treated my nostalgia needs at our annual water boogie and jumped the PC into the lake. Last year (water-boogie 23) I reluctantly put away my b-4 container(PC main,C-9 reserve) because the reserve attachment points were so low on the harness.If I needed my reserve (God forbid a total) I would have been bent in half like a taco during opening shock.
