Anyone have any experience boosting/repeating cell phone signals? I have a friend who lives in a rural area and gets a weak cell phone signal. His Internet service is also provided by this signal. Any good options for boosting his signal across his home & farm? AT&T is his provider.

Sure, but I would expect that the booster has a better antenna than your typical cell phone or other small device. So, a signal that's weak to a nearby phone may not be necessarily weak to the booster.

The SI definition of an Amp is being refined next year.
After it's all over, your lights will be just as bright, and your refrigerator just as cold. But very soon the ampere—the SI base unit of electrical current—will take on an entirely new identity, and NIST scientists are at work on an innovative, quantum-based measurement system that will be consistent with the impending change.

Nice article and matches my experience. Those labs are very busy, and it is a constant juggling of the schedule to get your product in the door!

The sign-up sheet for volunteers for our soldering workshop at the +Nashville Mini Maker Faire is posted. Hurry and get a prime spot! The more help we can get the shorter the shifts everyone can work and the more everyone gets to enjoy the Faire. Please try to work at least one shift if you can. THANKS!
