So very awesome!
Live video from the International Space Station includes internal views when the crew is on-duty and Earth views at other times. The video is accompanied by audio of conversations between the crew and Mission Control. This video is only available when the space station is in contact with the ground. During "loss of signal" periods, viewers will see a blue screen. Since the station orbits the Earth once every 90 minutes, it experiences a sunrise o...

Wondering if I could get some help with this one. It's a marine VHF handheld that suddenly stopped outputting sound through the built in speaker.

After dissembling the unit for inspection, I noticed an excessive amount of what looked like acid built up. However, due to battery location and contact placement, I'm thinking that an ingress of salt water likely caused corrosion.

A very small coil I believe to be some sort of resistor fell out of the housing and I was able to locate the position on the board where it was originally installed. The problem is I have absolutely no idea how to remount it due to the corrosion in that area obscurring the contacts it was soldered to.

So my questions are:
-how can I safely clean the area?
-how can I safely reattach the coil?
-does anyone know what exactly the coil is?
-can anyone rationalize if this is a possible factor behind a malfunctioning speaker?

Thanks!

Good summary of the Ukraine/Russian conflict to present
It began as a dispute over a trade deal, but it's mushroomed into the bloodiest conflict in Europe since the wars over the former Yugoslavia.

This song is an old English tune called 'the cuckoo'. I am trying to identify the woman singing and this version of the song myself.

I do and have an album of many of those songs sung by Andreus Scholl. I find Deller can project
with much more ease though. Desmonde Dupre is great :)
