Google marty keith elliott facebook.  Be sure to click Genesis of Station YHWH to see his cool bus/house/station/frankensetup.  He reminds me of the paper crown burger king guy meme.

Oh and listening to the Sterling Mystery Theater late weekend nights secretly on a tiny silver AM transistor radio in bed in first or second grade?  Living the high life as long as you were not 9v battery deprived.  Which we were 2/3 of the time.

The RF Workbench / Re: Beyond 45/48m

What's this thing run on?  Power-wise.  Ya know like a car battrey?  Does it require an oscilloscope to tune coz I don't have one.  LOL.  Is it just a board with stuff soddered on?  So I need to put it inside a proper radio?
Sorry to seem thick, I just see tiny surface mounted things, bondage wiring, and a capacitor big as....well.  Does it go inside a radio you sell?  I don't know what to make of the pictures.  Christal?

Yeah best fidelity and strongest ever for USB
who dat?  Hmm Radio 48 ID 2104 est

Equipment / Re: 'CB' amplifier for HF
« on: February 16, 2022, 2059 UTC »
I couldn't tell you about Texas Star, but I have had zero problems with old linears on 10-40's meters with stuff like Pride, Grey, even a generic looking 100 watt HME box.  I believe the old ones generally worked 3-30 mhz.  Now I DID have problems with my only expensive purchase, the RM Italy about 10 years ago.  It was I believe a 150, fan or two on top, knob band selector on the left, billed as 1.8-30mhz.  Absolute P. O. S.  Tested on the bench with a Cobra stock CB.  Worked ok, but not real impressed with output.  Mobile I could not get it to work >90% of the time.  I tried everything 1-10 watt input, connections, 10m, 40m.  No reason why it decided to work once for a minute then not.  Other amps worked just fine.  Luckily got my $ back.
So gitcha an old cheaper one.  Only issues I have had with them is fuse getting sizzly from age and poor connection.  So chop off and add new wire with fuse.  I have also never had to replace a cap in any of the 4 I have which is amazing.  If you 'chaw' minutes+ straight at a time, put a fan on top.

Guessing Ukranian guy.  Plays Metallica, Rammstein, etc.  Frequent images in the waterfall.  He has quite the signal and has been on the last few evenings so probably again tonight.
Vice picked it up

I'd stick an image or two here but I don't use photo junk online.  Be prepared for mangled English spelling and penises.

Sweet! Very interesting article.

The RF Workbench / Tried a 270-030 replacement

2 mH 5A choke from Mouser.  Did it work? Yes, but a bit overdriven even at lower volume.  RA told me never found a replacement that sounded as good as the original Shack part and I believe him.  $5 for this experiment bypassing a choke in a working clone into a dummy load of course.
If you want to see exactly what I tried, part # 80-SC-05-20J

Had all but one of these.  Definitely Tecsun 600 to 880.  Ported out to large speakers is awesome.

EEEwwwww, Frank's and Tabasco?  Vinegar ick low potency.  If you need to go mainstream, at least try El Yucateco red.  Hotter and not vinegary. Two bucks at the Walworld.  I have since become self actualized and make my own habanero sauce about every other weekend.  Trinidad scorpion peppers getting grown out back next spring to see how they are.

Huh? / Re: Kim Shattuck, Punk Musician Who Led the Muffs, Dies at 56

It fuckin killed me reading about it on punknews.org this morning. She was so nice.  We exchanged some emails in the later 90s. She had an early macbook. Set me up with a fakebook for guitar of the first three albums.  Handwritten, verse/chorus/bridge shit with chords written above the lyrics.  Try to get that shit nowadays emailing your songwriting guitar idol.  Fuck I am so bummed out and drinking.   Nobody else writes perfect three minute 3-4 chord punk melodic shit like Kim did. I had no idea she had ALS.  She just released the Coolies EP and another Muffs CD of old recordings will drop 10/20.  Shit.
