Transmission line safety monitoring system

Abstract

A cost-effective transmission line safety monitoring system which detects and tracks acoustic and chemical anomalies along a transmission line to determine if a destructive event is present. One or more sensors, each enclosed in a weather-resistant container, are attached to an antenna and installed as part of the antenna transmitting system on a tower, building top or hill. The acoustic signatures and gas purity deviations are detected and transmitted to a remote master processing center where, via the use of packaged software, the signals are continuously compared to an existing library of acceptable and non-acceptable signatures for pattern matches. An operator, using a PC in a simple WINDOWS. RTM. format, may assign newly acquired signatures to the library for future operation. Different levels of alarms may be triggered and a system shutdown may be initiated, if the incoming signals are similar to or directly match one of the pre-entered non-acceptable signatures, or alternatively, if the gas purity levels are exceeded.

High impact drumstick

Abstract

A drumstick capable of varying the physical characteristics of an impact of the drumstick to a surface thereby varying the sound that the drumstick can produce when playing percussive type impact musical products is disclosed. The drumstick includes an outer, hollow rigid tube-like body member including a handle portion adapted to be held by the hand of a user. A pliable tube-like membrane structure is positioned within the outer hollow body member, the pliable structure changing its shape during use of the drumstick. A liquid medium is located within the pliable structure, the pliable structure being shaped to restrict the liquid to the handle portion of the drumstick, and as a rotational force/motion is applied by a user to the drumstick, the liquid is forced outwardly toward a striking area of the drumstick thereby resulting in a change of balance of the drumstick.
