Good god. Inverter v dipole. Center up at least 20 ft. Each leg about 33 ft. 10 watts quiet night half the US. Works with anything 6900 plus or minus whatever. Now if you want to run power you have to test that shit out.

I made these tonight.  Got 5 eggs made with 1 lb country sausage.  Very good and I will make again.

Bacon, BBQ, Beef, And More / Bacon Cheese Jalapeno Soda Bread
« on: January 31, 2017, 0045 UTC »
It's a forgiving recipe.  Epicurious and allrecipes took a shit on me and wouldn't publish my fun real life recipe with inaccurate measurements.  Of course those submissions were much more fun...I don't know..this is the toned down version.  Anal retentive buttholes.
The doughballs should be a bit sticky rather than dry before cooking.  It took several tries to mess with recipes online and get something I liked the best.  And chicks love bacon, cheese, and bread in that order.  It makes impressive grotesque shaped loaves that you will want to photograph and turn into QSL cards.  This stuff usually is devoured within an hour right out of the oven by the 3-4 of us.

Cheesy jalapeno bacon soda bread – makes 2 medium loaves – fits on pizza pan
•   3 c bread/regular white flour (start with 2.5 cup and add as needed)
•   1.5 tsp baking soda
•   1 tsp baking powder
•   1 tsp salt

•   1 and 1/4 c buttermilk (can sub Ύ cup (small tub size) plain yogurt + ½ cup milk).  Yes it needs to be acidic like buttermilk/yogurt.
•   1 egg or 2. Who cares.  Nobody put eggs in the old soda bread recipes, just mainly the previous ingredients.
•   2 TBSP vegetable oil (optional)

•   8-10 slices hot cheese like pepperjack or habanero or ~1/2 bar of extra sharp cubed in 1/3 inch cubes
•   About 10 slices bacon, cooked and chopped up or use 1/2 package of prefab tiny cubed ham, but bacon is better
•   1 tsp rosemary ground up (optional)
•   1 tsp oregano (kind of optional but the chicks love to smell that fragrant shit cooking)
•   1 large jalapeno (or 2 small) diced as small as possible. Hell, I don’t mind 3.

1.   Get the oven preheated to 425 and prepare bacon, grind up rosemary, slice the cheese, dice jalapeno. Set these aside in a pile.
2.   Mix the first 4 solids in a large bowl (3 liter + bowl if you don't want to get powder shit everywhere) teaspoon size items first.  Mix well.
3.   Whisk buttermilk, egg, and oil in another smaller bowl.  No whisk?  Tear it up with a fork until smooth.  Doesn't matter.
4.   Mix the last ingredients (cheese, bacon, herb of some sort, jalapeno) briefly into the large bowl with powders.
5.   Add liquid bowl to large bowl. Use a large spoon and mix it well for a minute. It will be sticky. You will want to add a tablespoon or two of flour a couple times as you go to get the doughball not so sticky.
6.   Dump it onto a floured surface and fold/punch it for a minute adding a tablespoon or two of flour to the surface and on top a few times forming a ball at the end. It might take a half cup + between adding powder to the bowl and dusting the kneading surface.  It will still stick to your hand but add flour to the point where it is getting close to not sticking.  Yeah your hand may look like it is melting off with all that crap stuck on it.  Flip that mass over, split in half, use both hands to spin/shape each chunk into two half hemispheres, flatten a little bit, transfer both flattened masses to a floured cookie sheet or pizza pan.  Better to be a bit sticky than add too much flour and be dry.
7.   Get a giant Jason knife and cut an X into the balls going all the way down to the pan. It NEEDS this to not be a giant doughball at the end.
8.   Drizzle melted butter on top and sprinkle extra salt and pepper on top.
9.   Cook at 425 about 30 minutes until toothpick comes out clean from several points in the center. My oven seem to run hot so I do 425 for about 15 minutes then back it off to 350 as soon as it starts to get decent brown forming on top to get it cooked through.  Stick toothpicks in a few places until they come out clean.  Or as clean as it can be with melted cheese inside.  Let it sit out and cool 10 minutes.
10.   Be prepared to grow a gut and weigh in 2-3 pounds heavier tomorrow.

i saw the fish sauce but where's the hot?  Looks good and I would dump chilis or sri racha paste in.
I make an awesome kim chi and varieties of quickbread if anyone interested.

The RF Workbench / Re: Someone had Corsair II AM TX experience?
« on: January 03, 2017, 0257 UTC »
Same here. I tried several Corsair schematics and all three had by problems usually terrible mud audio or extremely low level. I futzed with every flavor of 386 replaced each individual component I couldn't test the value on.....Stick to the grenade for a tried and true works first time box.

Equipment / Re: Sony 7600....
« on: December 06, 2016, 2208 UTC »
I have a 7600 and I'd trade it for a newer Tecsun in a heartbeat.  It won't overload with a dipole or longwire.  I am not thrilled with the sensitivity of mine.  SSB is a real pain requiring you move that little wheel to the exact tenth of a millimeter and usually still doesn't sound quite right no matter how much you fuss with it.  Wide bandwidth is fine for AM and SSB.  I can't stand to use narrow for anything.  Muddy as hell.
Strong AM and FM it rocks but what the hell use is that?

Kims on bass?  Give me Kim Shattuck who was also with the Pixies very briefly.  Kim Warner was pretty cool too.  Shattuck was too cool for the Pixies.  Shocked them and violated their Xtian ideals writhing about on the stage or ground or something.

my AM interference 2cents
I thought I had a lot of spikes everywhere due to the close AM powerhouse.  I got the PAR-BCST-HPF AM filter.
It DESTROYS to virtually zero all signals 500-1600ish but made no difference in my spikes on the screen or SWL experience.  I guess the spikes everywhere are related to my terrible noise related to our house electrical supply.  I will have S7+ noise until I move but the damn thing is almost paid off.

Damn thing came without knobs and antenna connector only the younguns know about.  Fortunately Amazon has SMA to SO239 cables so normal people can connect the thing to a normal antenna.  Or a chunk of wire if you want to jam some in the end.

Damn right.  Neighbors live with filth strewn yard that looks like a trailer park exploded and you want to say I can't put an antenna out in my nice yard or a simple vertical looks like something illegal? OMGOMG gotta shut up now to not incriminate..................................AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!

The RF Workbench / Re: Modulated 5W NS40
« on: September 06, 2016, 2136 UTC »
Yes many different points of view on this one and I can see them all.
Hey I'd be interested, but only if I could get a complete box with poles, so239, and some sort of mp3 plug...
I don't want to figure out an unfamiliar schematic, build a box, etc.  I already work 50+ hours a week, am Mr. Mom, I just don't have the time.  My time is worth a lot.
I have a little room for an oscilloscope in my house full of shit, money is not a problem, but again it comes down to time to learn something new.  I can follow a simple schematic and can whip out a Channel Z grenade that works first time every time with >5 watt carrier.  More with a couple tweak attempts.  No scope.
I don't expect patients to be familiar with chemistry, diagnosis, meds, labs.  You are lucky if the goobers can even spit out an incomplete list of the pills they take into their bodies every day.  Same deal here.  Oscilloscope.  Labs.  Chemistry.  We all spoonfeed them (PAY for them too!) and they are almost unaware of being alive, much less how stuff works.
Just my 2 cents.  Yes I am not in a good mood today.

It has been reproduced several times already. You can get a good soft leather bound photographic repro one one eBay. The $199 one. They will jump on a $150 offer. It is pretty cool but not like you can read it.

Small package and portable and can do the damage down to 6900 I can vouch for the buddipole deluxe package. It is on the expensive side at 175. Just leave clips off and it goes below 40m. It is super touchy about counterpoise length. It can go 2.5 to 1 down to 1.3 to 1 simply laying down the 6 inch kite winder one more width either way. It is about half the volume of the smallest laptop briefcase shaped bag.
