It's a 7500 watt FM broadcast transmitter. No tubes in this - it's about the size of a refrigerator!

If you listen to radio in Milwaukee, there's a good chance it's thanks to one of the three people in this picture. It was an honor to have WBA Hall of Fame Broadcast Engineer LeRoy Wolniakowski stop by for a visit. He and Naish have a long history in Milwaukee radio, putting my 12 years to shame!  :-)

I tend to slide back and forth between "computer ecosystems"...I've slid from my MacBook/iPhone/iPad world back into my Chromebook/Nexus/Tab world once again. They're both great in their own ways. I wish I could pick just one, but I can't! :-)

Use which ever is most convenient at the time and don't worry about it :)  I'm hoping one day out main computer is in out pocket and we use whatever screen, keyboard etc. is nearby.  Smartphones are starting to head that direction.

Found in the woods behind the WOLX transmitter site in the Baraboo bluffs yesterday while I was up there working.  I wonder if it was an old Engineering vehicle.

Your son looks delicious. Let one hope that a pack of wild dogs doesn't come across him.

Just got back from a couple of days in Madison for the WBA Broadcaster's Clinic.  Now I'm sitting here trying to get caught up.  I need a vacation...

Today I replaced the relief valve in my water heater.  Had to build up some testosterone after yesterday's activities.

Sitting here in a hotel room in Madison getting ready for the WBA Broadcaster's Clinic. Good a time as any to update the software on my Apple stuff...
