Cleaning out the basement and found my old portable 2 meter antenna and tower for when I was into  ARES RACES.

Maybe it's time to update it.   a portable 20 foot tower can be handy!

#AVTWEEPS    Anyone using the F/UTP 10Gig Commscope X10D cable in place of Crestron DM 8G cable?

I have a customer looking for WHITE cables and not the ugly crestron blue so they hide in the ceiling better.

Tired of where Linux has gone. Getting back to my roots by installing Slackware.

I aspire to be as Weird as the Zotti!

On a side note, Wow this is fast, this is how fast linux is supposed to run.  Insane fast with instant response.  Ubuntu is as fat and bloated as windows 8.1 when compared to Slackware.

Polycom Real Presence 700  Video Conference codec.   It does 1080p fully encrypted video conferencing over the internet.

It will have 3 1080p displays connected to it so that can have 3 calls at once full screen or more in split screen modes.

Committing a Grave Heresy on Easter......   Installing a Harley davidson product on a BMW.

The sad part is that Harley is the ONLY company that has a decent XM receiver for a motorcycle that is waterproof and you can easily operate with gloves on.

Problem is, that is only a sena headset control, and the sena headset will not change channels in the XP radio app or change tracks my podcast app.    It's one of the things that makes all media apps fall down, nobody supports a universal media control interface like they should.  Apple and Android both should enforce the use of media controls interfaces.

The Chipmunks that were running the old Extron switchers were getting old,  At least it's a full DM upgrade instead of the typical, "lets install cascading switchers to save you money" install.

Anyone adding split ferrite cores to their coax to block radiated power coming back down to the radio?   When I run QRP portable I'm not grounded as I run a counterpoise, I just wonder when I upgrade to 100 watts if I might have a problem and need to ground myself at  transmit locations or can I get away with a couple of ferrite cores to block the RF coming back down the outside of the coax.

Especially in QRP each antenna should be matched clean in their 'electrical' frequency dependent resonance. (This is not possible with a coax-fed dipol at too low height.)
A loss of radiated power by reflection is with tuned resonance antennas impossible or very low.
Then occur, particularly when used outdoors, ensure no interference in the environment.

Story
Introduction
I've been a technology guy for all my life.  My father taught me algebra and Electronics starting at 8 years old. I build my own projects (solar panel sun tracker) at 10 and learned about computers and their power.  My father gave me my first computer at age 11, (Kim-1, I had to build it to make it work) and learned assembly language as my first programming language. Went through the Vic-20, C64, Co-co, Ti-99a, etc until the IBM PCjr  hit the scene when I was in high school. Until then I was content with the Altair 8080 that the school had and the TRS-80 model 3 computers  It all escalated from there.  I always enjoy tech, and dreamed of the automated home forever.  Crestron gear gives me a hand firmly in that automated future world I dreamed of. 

Today I program Executive board rooms, Conference rooms, Entire Buildings, homes, and theaters using a multitude of technologies.   Still use my computer programming and electronics and enjoy a LOT of I.T. work and I.T. and I.S. consulting on the side.  This stuff is second nature to me, and I really do enjoy it. I am happiest when I have a challenge in front of me.

$15.00 for a McDonalds quality lunch. The fries were cold and barely a half handful, the Bacon Cheese burger is a frozen patty that comes with two very tiny strips of pre-cooked bacon and a wilted piece of lettuce. no onion, no mayo, no nothing on it. and it came barely above room temperature as if they let it all sit for 20 minutes before serving. They need to make sure the fries are hot and plentiful for a high priced lunch. and use real fresh hamburger not frozen hockey pucks that are no better than a $2.00 fast food joint.

The employees here think everything is a race and try to make the sandwich so fast that you get a smashed mess. If you want a Smashed gooey mess, then this is the place to go!

Dr Pierce was one of the best Family doctors around. He has passed away now and will be missed. I believe the office is closed now as he was the only doctor there.
