VAMPIRES IN BOSTON? IN 1896? TBT [Throw Back Thursday]


 

 


 A STORY CLOSER TO THE HEART OF HALLOWEEN

 

 

 

 

I took a week off to get my head straight over the events of last month, so I missed last weeks "THROW BACK THURSDAY". I thought I could take one week away from radio and have something more in line with Halloween, so I dug up this gem from 1896 - Enjoy!

SWR (i.e. - where does that lost power go?)

 


IT'S THAT TIME OF THE YEAR AGAIN




Yep, Halloween is right around the corner so it's time to change my Blog pic to something more seasonal. The video I have posted below is another fine (albeit short) example of what Waters & Stanton's Peter Waters, creates each week (usually posted on Friday)

It's a short one about SWR (or as some call it "Swerr"), followed by 2 longer videos, one by K0LWC and the other by the "Wizard of Og" - KE0OG, Dave Casler, about using the SWR meter on your ICOM IC-7300.

 
















Thanks so much for taking a little time out of your day to visit this Blog, and special thanks to those who sent condolence emails about my Dad's passing. Shortly after posting that page I brought it back to Draft status until a setup a permanent link, however, this page I've created will slowly grow as more photos are found, and more memories re-surface.

SUNSPOT CYCLE 25, AND WHY IT MIGHT BE A BIG ONE


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There have been quite a few articles and videos regarding Solar Cycle 25, and how big or small it may turn out to be. This is the latest one I've found (Sept 17th), so if you have an hour to kill take a gander of what they have to say.

WATERS & STANTON - A NICE PLACE TO VISIT


 

 

 SOME GOOD ADVICE

 

 

 

 

 I subscribe and watch videos from Peter Waters of Waters & Stanton every week. His laid back approach to the subject at hand is greatly admired. 

The first video is about getting into ham radio while spending the least amount you can afford, and the second one is titled: CB vs Ham Radio, a short video where Peter talks about the two services. I hope you enjoy these as much as I did (for what it's worth, I wish a US vendor would do something like this as well)
