Re: Water cooling question
I have a 120l barrel but actually it would be a nuisance. The room is adjacent to the shack so I don’t worry about blowers and the such like but at no point did I say that I had plenty of space. Its 3 x 4 x 2.4m and of course you forgot to allow for the ‘junk factor’. It’s a space so I already filled it!
It sounds much grander than it is although it does have airco 😉

As others have said, it's difficult to remove heat from a coolant that is barely above room temperature itself. On the other hand, it's very easy to increase the total mass of water and continue to use passive cooling.
Another data-point from the 2C39 days is that K2UYH used to operate a water cooled ring of 8 for a whole EME weekend using a large bin with no other cooling.
