Re: Ahooga!

I've used those RF modules, and the $12 receiver/transmitter fob (including battery!) has the option of momentary, toggle, or latch with a single button. Nice job though, getting your one second delay from a cap!

Powder coating power supply

Anybody play with powder coating? I have one with a small high voltage module that takes 120 VAC and outputs (technically) 11,000 volts. Unknown current, probably milliamps. This one has zero output, and the manufacturer says it'll be months before they have any more modules in stock. It's fully enc...

Re: Structures

Welcome, rash-
That's a common question, on everybody's mind lately.
If yours is regarding the blivit data structure, you'll find the inverse logarithmic recursive function applies, while the data structure of the n-th dimension requires compliance with asymmetrical contrasting cardinal grammeters.

Re: Ham License

Crazy idea- could you use a software-defined radio? https://www.amazon.com/RTL-SDR-Blog-RTL2832U-Software-Defined/dp/B0129EBDS2/ref=asc_df_B0129EBDS2/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309707619534&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=10005290042573975653&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlo...

Re: Sysop Note: Logon Amnesia

Win 10, using Chrome. I've been away for a few months, but have the logon problem lately. It is as the OP describes. I have to logon while I am already logged on, but to reply, must logon again.
