Wierd “Plane”

Wierd “Plane”

While walking with my wife May 19, 2013 in the morning, we heard a prop plane overhead.  My wife turned around and I did too to look upward to try to spot the plane.  I was amazed at viewing an extremely high speed delta wing type of plane with no prop, no windows, no wing or tail flaps, no exhaust, no markings, exceedingly smooth like a dolphin, very pointed nose, white plastic or transparent looking body going west to east…

How Not To Win A War

How Not To Win A War

You should seriously consider looking at and consider buying the March/April 2013 issue of Foreign Policy magazine (How Not To Win A War).  It does an excellent job of looking back to how the United States has done such a poor job at waging war.  I used the word “poor” while others may substitute the word “incompetent”.  The issue mainly cites Afghanistan in its analysis.  As part of this issue, they reveal how President Obama allowed for  similar failed administration…

Kayak DD Video Switcher Goes Down While I Watch It Happen.

I am at the end of my Monday proof of a million dollar TV studio and control room.  I run into snags every week and today is not any better.  Here are some examples for this day:  I can’t get the Deko character generator computer to turn on until I go through a special power up process.  It finally does power up very clean.  Camera one is divorced from the camera control unit because someone turned camera control lock off…

Keeping Nasal Passage Clear And Possibly Help You From Getting Sick.

Keeping Nasal Passage Clear And Possibly Help You From Getting Sick.

Problem: Protection from air-born disease. Solution:  I had to attend a one on one orientation prior to receiving chemotherapy at Kaiser.  I had to watch a computer slide show followed by a talk with a nurse who covered some check list items that she was tasked to present.  At the end of this somewhat intimate presentation she asked me if I had any questions.  I brought up the concern that my immune system was going to be compromised and was…

Health Problem: Can Not Digest Meat Properly

Health Problem: Can Not Digest Meat Properly

Problem:  Unable to properly process meat.   This is often times a hereditary factor passed on from parents.  My mother almost died from bowel impaction.  History on my mother’s side shows diverticulitis is prevalent.

Ham Radio Station In A Go Box

Ham Radio Station In A Go Box

I had heard a story of a long time ago where a police department somewhere in the United States needed ham radio operator help for some emergency.  I believe it was a RACES group.  The police needed to coordinate their efforts with the ham radio volunteers.  Within a very short time a ham radio operator showed up at the police station with a radio in a box solution.  He was told where to set up and the station was operational…

Hand Held Radio Safety Lanyard

Hand Held Radio Safety Lanyard

One day while wearing my Kenwood TH-F6 on my belt I backed up to a wall for some reason and the radio fell off my belt and the clip on battery separated, both falling to the floor.  The radio was ok but the battery lock mechanism was broken.  The battery is rather expensive so I determined to figure out how to protect any HT radio.  It took a while but here is my solution: T-Reign 24 inch 4 oz small…
