I'm to impatient to wait 3+ months for the BPL effort to take shape.
I'd like to do some quick and dirty "rain tower" testing.
Build a tilt-frame, mount the cuben, mount a "spray head" 30' up on the roof, and have at it. No drop-size control, but that's the way it goes. Let common sense prevail. I'm more concerned by the "hard driving rain" than the pleasant evening sprinkle.
I'm looking for the 3 lightest weights,.34, .50, .75 oz/yd, or whatever they are.
I want a "sample window" about 24"x24", and it would be nice to have 2 of each, in the name of "science" and all. So a 36" piece off a 54" roll would get it done. That would give me 2 samples with enough around the 24" x 24" for mounting.
I'll do "virgin" tests - horizontal and 45°, followed by similar "used" tests (90 minutes of flapping in front of the fan).
Post ideas and suggestions here. But KISS, I'm a "quick and dirty" kind of guy.
I'm willing to pay for materials, just not 9 meter rolls.
