Re: Soldering iron tip woes

You'll probably laugh and most likely wince, but on my OOOOLLLLLDDDD Radio Shack iron with the Pyramid tip, all I do is use a file to keep the shape and it retakes a tinning right away. Of course, I don't use mine as hard as you guys do, so I still have my original tip. :D

Re: Technology Backfire?

..... Maybe parking pointing North, so it can recharge from the earth's magnetic field will work. Only time, and the lemon laws will tell! Better check your local magnetic inclination! LOL Shouldn't you hang the car from a cable and let it swing across the earth's magnetic fields? Hmmm... :D :D :D

Re: Ham License

Hey jwax, missed the part about the USAF. Thank you for your service. To all who have been in the Armed Forces, a huge thank you for your service. Do either of you, or anyone else, know what's required for QRP / flea power? It's been years since I've read about it and quite frankly, can't remember w...

Re: Ham License

What is amazing is that I see quite a few amateur radio license plates in my little neck of the woods, SE Pennsylvania. I also think I see them playing fox and the hound quite often too. I have yet to catch a local hamfest or meet. Next local one is July 13. Hope to get closer to re-entering the lis...

I see these donuts all the time in the store. So tiny. Must be over a thousand in a box! And the name is so upbeat - it even has "Cheer" in it!

Re: Odd Commercial Products.........

Wow! I just saw a Bell & Howell Disk Lights commercial, and they say these revolutionary devices utilize "solar conversion technology" and "energy storage containers". Does anyone know about these revolutionary technologies? ;) :) :D /sarcasm off/ CeaSaR Around the 25 second mark: https://youtu.be/G...

Re: Any integrated circuit that works as the old tone decoder but for RF ?

Shortwave and the old Air band. You could set up some divide by chips and feed them into the ADC pins of a microcontroller, sampling the pins at X intervals, to see when the signal comes through. Then the code can compare the frequency to a range, and if it falls within, it can output a high to turn...

For all of us old timers on here, we have memories of one prolific member. I can't say what types of memories you have, but none the less, the name Chris Smith brings back a time when the board was quite active. He has been the top poster for as long as I've been a member. Well, it seems that we are...

Re: Info / schematic request

Resurrecting this old thread because, well, its still on the shelf. Looking to get a few minutes to look at it this weekend (yeah, right). Found this little piece of Ad copy that gives me just a bit of info on the age. Man, takes me back. CeaSaR https://i.postimg.cc/r0pZM6Cf/AD-with-Claricon-Stereo....
