Chat With The Designers

The New Jersey QRP Club has put together an excellent series of podcasts covering various topics for the amateur radio operator and electronics enthusiast.

So far I have listened to Favorite Parts & Kit Suppliers and Intro To The Digital Modes.

These podcasts go into great detail offering the listener different ideas and approaches as well as a learning aid into the subjects covered. This afternoon I am going to listen to Schematic Capture and PCB Layout.

The podcast broadcasts live every Tuesday at 8:00PM eastern time.
Be sure to check out the growing list of topics.

Thank you to the NJ QRP Club for taking the time and putting these wonderful podcasts on the web for all of us to enjoy.

Google Drive

The new Google Drive looks promising for storing and sharing photos and information in general. I have a nice assortment of pictures on my hard drive and have been looking for a safe home before this computer goes.

Check out this 9 year old's cardboard arcade.

I would invest in the fun pass for 500 plays.
Great job Caine.

Lazy Sunday Afternoon

This has turned out to be the perfect Sunday, a cloudy cool slight drizzle outside and some good reading, Tick Tock by James Patterson. Exciting detective story in New York City trying to catch a killer. Just finished Sail by the same author, great read all the way!

Over the past few weeks I have been reviewing my code using Just Learn Morse Code, wonderful program. I try and do 20 minutes plus a day, my spring training for future outdoor portable operating.

Yesterday I wired up a QRP circuit on a bread board but smoked the first resistor when power is hooked up. Glad resistors are very cheap, went through a handful so far. It must be the schematic, can't be me. :)

Enjoy what is left of the weekend!
