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.

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

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.

Good lord forget Belinda.
Jane still digs leather, restraints, bdsm....yum

Arrived 7/18!  Thanks.  Paged through the whole thing in bed last night.

Got family here and can't listen long but scanned and heard nice 6943 signal. USB.  Gone a few minutes later when I tried to listen for specifics.

Equipment / Re: Effects of modification to gutter antenna
« on: July 02, 2016, 1939 UTC »
Jeez who knows what will happen with a gutter antenna?  Kind of like random bed springs antenna. Maybe something bad maybe something good. https://vimeo.com/126720159
I'd recommend a basic dipole, even with thick magnet wire if stealth is needed.  Can run up to 100 watts into the thick red magnet wire stuff.  Larger wire if stealth not needed.  I got the signal out well over most of US with NS oriented thin magnet wire anywhere from 5-50 watts.  Sun willing and shit.
