I'm having a problem with my 706. FM is staticy (and after warming up can get really bad). I've ruled out the antenna or an external RFI source. SSB on HF sounds fine. I've tried to find some FM 10m signals and 2m SSB signals, both to no avail.

So the question is, what should I start looking at to fix this radio?

Mike, in the past week, I've listened to other FM signals on UHF that were fine (I tried to find one on 10m, but nothing).  Looking at the service manual, it appears those should be sharing crystal (not ceramic) filters.  

I'm thinking I should look in the 2m/VHF signal path... got any ideas of things that might go bad?  My thought is to see if I can connect an HT to the signal path after the LPF, antenna switch, preamp, and BPF and see if it sounds bad...  Does it sound like I'm on the right track?

Anyone want to play Name That Diode? I need a new D22. D20 and 21 appear to be the same. They have ?H632 on them.

A traffic counter (a Jamar Trax III). This is the power for it that was supposed to handle anything from 6-20 volts. I plugged 12 volts into it and smelled burning electronics.

If I can green peppers, what can I do with them in the winter?

What can I do with pickled green peppers? Banana and jalapeños can go on sandwiches and pizza, but I've never had a canned or pickled green pepper.

It seems the consensus so far is to chop and freeze them.

I'm building a weather station around my BeagleBoard Black and (so far) ThingSpeak.  This is the first of two or three or four posts related to this.

How to have a happy commute: find a way to enjoy it.

They could have interviewed me for this article, but they would have had to spend a paragraph explaining what "amateur radio" and "chasing DX" means :-) #Transpo   #hamradio

Of all the things I have ever shared here, this is the most important, by far. There are 18k people who have me in circles. Let's see if we can't stop my family's pain from being another's. Please pass this along #teamlaura

I ran into a little problem with my +BeagleBoard.org Black today (of course, it is a problem I caused).  Had to think like MacGyver to see the serial port to indeed confirm that I screwed up something.

The pizza was great, and the service was excellent. Went there with 3 kids just before prime dinner time on a Saturday. The waitress did an excellent job of making sure she put stuff out of our little kids' reach (especially their food, which came out earlier than my wife's and my pizza and was hot). The restaurant also has a great beer selection- although I didn't see any local beers, there was a lot more than Bud/BL/Miller/ML, and I felt like some other beers (such as the Long Hammer IPA) were more prominently displayed in the beer menu.

Place needs a lot of work. Got to room to find that the A/C had been off, so it was like an oven in the room for a while. Two microwaves in the room, one OLD TV. The only good thing is that we (by the grace of God) managed to not end up with bedbugs, roaches, or other hitchhikers. It was cheap, however.

Nothing like having a big field with NO TREES in the middle of a campus in Florida.

MUCH better selection and prices than Radio Shack. Not the prettiest store, but the guy behind the counter won't give you a blank stare if you ask him for a 22uF 50V capacitor (and he won't try to sell you a cell phone either!).

Wait staff is useless. The place is not very clean. The Frisch's across the street is actually better (and they suck too, just not as bad).

The coffee is EXCELLENT. Comparing it to Starbucks, it is a little less expensive but tastes like it should cost twice as much. The employee (presumably the owner) was very personable and talkative, and the other customers were really nice too (I know you can't really review on that, but something must've made them happy).
