Beast! Been trying to pick out weak signals - CW and SSB. This man sized radio really does it well.

Putty gets conductive with age . The darker it gets the worst it gets. This is inside a popular brand subwoofer. Shorts out everything.

Would not mind owning this set myself
 
Shack p0rn circa 1946
If you were a radio nerd in the 1940s, this was your dream set. Built by Kluge Electronics in Los Angeles, the “California Kilowatt” could not only send and receive messages, but it came with all the bells and whistles — including built-in speakers and an illuminated map of the world, all housed in a sleek fold-down desk.

My goal for today has been accomplished. GET MY G*D** COMPUTER TO TALK TO MY PACKET MODEM!

and what did I do to accomplish this feat of enormous magnitude? turn on TRANSPARENT mode on my TNC....yeah thanks google for NOT telling me that. Thankfully my curious eyes went through the owners manual supplied with my modem and I stumbled across that as I was browsing through the table of contents...

Next weeks goal is to successfully set up AX.25 between 2 computers (I have sound modem installed on one, and the hardware TNC on the other) and get atleast basic network connectivity between the two.

anyways, what is TRANSPARENT mode you may be asking? TRANSPARENT mode sends all 8 bits of data received over radio directly to the computer. This means the difference between the computer being able to talk to another computer through the packet modem, or sitting there looking like an id10t. when NOT in TRANSPARENT mode, the TNC will strip the most significant bit off since ASCII/BAUDOT does not make use of this bit (unless you are using special characters, which you will NOT be using on packet radio). This is all good and swell for raw text, but wreaks havoc when trying to send binary, or an unsupported symbol, from one end to the other.

TEMPTING!! I will be pledging money to this project as soon as I can afford it
 
Thanks to the growth of Urban Outfitters and independent local free-trade coffee shops, vinyl records are back on the rise. But this is still the 21st century: why settle for a pedestrian, boring, flat record player, when your vinyl could be proudly spinning vertically?

In search of convenient portable computing - the IBM 5100 weighs only 50 pounds and can be programmed in APL. Announced in 1975. Lots of applications illustrated in this advert, but somehow it was not a great commercial success. (BASIC was also available.)
For previous mentions including some technical details, see

Technichs SL-D202 Turntable.

Hey. Look what I found at the attic My old turntable bought new in 1981/82 . If I remember correctly I used it to about 1995 when I stacked it away to make space for my CDs. Last year I bought a new budget Sony turntable. And the love for vinyl discs came over me again. All my records is back in the best space of the house.

This fella got a new Ortofon Stylus 7 replacement needle today, and sounds better than ever. Just miss my lost old dust cover.

Good times.
