Sell diodes, and save the USCG!
« on: March 26, 2021, 1952 UTC »
There ya go. Sell stuff to the US Coast Guard!  https://hackaday.com/2021/03/14/rare-diode-threatens-coast-guards-arctic-ambitions/    I kindda' know what they're going through... Read my $0.02 worth way down below.
Since I did electrical training, for being an electrician, decades ago, I thought that I could always fall-back on that. Besides, what other field can you use trade terms like nipples, hickeys, and making male / female connections, without getting into trouble at work?
