CAT-5 or CAT-6 patch cords are of stranded wire.
Yeah, I've got some CAT-5 and CAT-6 in my wire pile.
But, it is 8 wire cable, and the outer casing diameter is too wide.

Re: Adafruit 1.2" led display

Heyyy Janitor >>> That Arrow.com has what i need.. Thanks. Wish i could find some white or blue ones..but i don't think they would operate from 5v. I've seen the smaller ones that did operate on 5v. Hmmm......... I'm finding white LED displays, but you have to buy them in bulk. {500 pieces at a tim...

Dacflyer,

I did more web mining, and I found this place: https://www.arrow.com/en/products/1266/ ... gLrIvD_BwE

They still have seven of these displays left.

Re: Adafruit 1.2" led display

Hmmm....... Still looking for a replacement for that adafruit board huh? Does it have to be 1.2" tall? I'm finding larger digits, and smaller ones. But, if you have the time...... How about using green rectangle shape LEDs? https://www.lumex.com/image/c/c060202i01.png You do have the data sheet wit...

Re: Lafayette Stereo-10 Amplifier

Cool. :grin: Nice to know it was something simple. Some of these early transistor designed amplifiers can be really well made. Thus, they can out perform a lot of crappy cheap amps that die within a few years. Just have to remember to give it a bit of a cleaning, once every few years. :razz: Signed...

Re: Lafayette Stereo-10 Amplifier

First guess would be output transistor. Next, an aging volume potentiometer. Let us know what you find! Do you have an actual model number on the amplifier? I've been digging through Sams PhotoFacts and not finding it. I agree with it possibly being fried output transistor(s). But, I would think tr...

Re: HotSpot question

Hmmm.......... I agree some what with Kheston, in that there is probably network congestion generated by other users in the evening. But instead of spending a lot of money on a repeater/extender. How about a simple directional DIY Antenna. I found these on YouTube. Simple cardboard & tinfoil reflect...

Re: Looking for power injector for amplified antenna...

WHAAAAAAT?! :shock: How did this go from a 12Vdc powered pre-amplifier to a 6Vdc signal booster?! As for the USB Power Jack on the Television......... Check what the amperage is. Televisions made in the past 5 years have a 1 to 2 Amp maximum current rating on the USB Power Jack. Most older Televisi...

Re: Shopjimmy

WOW! Thanks Janitor Tzap! Precious info! I don't suppose you would sell one of those, if you have any spares? Appreciate your help! John Nope, sorry. Check DigiKey, Newark, or E-bay. Price will vary. But expect to spend a buck or two for the part, and several dollars on the shipping. :roll: Signed:...

Re: Looking for power injector for amplified antenna...

I don't see why the Channel Master Power Supply wouldn't work. :? The RF-Connectors are different from the Kingray Power Injector's. So, you would need to replace those connectors on the cables to RG-6U connectors. But if you need the Power Injector to be like the Kingray Power Injector. That is goi...
