Re: Take me to the river

I actually met this dude and he actually called himself a toss pot and I had to look it up as well. Barge life is a primo backdrop for your tale. I’m enjoying the slang. I had to look up this one at M-W online; tosspot noun toss·pot | \ˈtȯs-ˌpät, ˈtäs-\ Definition of tosspot : DRUNKARD, SOT Examples...

Re: In the market for a radio, looking for advice

One more question before I make some recommendations: Do they need to be compatible with any specific codeplug, and who will be doing the programming? This was my first thought. Our local 911 center programs all radios for responders in a two county area and I’d ask them first if they have the soft...

Re: My 2018 Field Day report

Do you still need a license for ham? If so... why? I'm interested if technology has made it cheaper and more accessible for a small hobby Funnily technology has made low end capabilities cheaper. A quick look at Craigslist or EBay show a station of the minimal capabilities of mine can be had for a ...

Re: My 2018 Field Day report

That sounds like an impressive range. Have you described the cost and composition of the equipment used to do this somewhere? If not, about how much would that cost? Aside from the wind turbine and batteries which are part of my farming operation, I think my equipment is probably a $300-400 investm...

My 2018 Field Day report

So, another Field Day has come and gone and I thought I’d post my results for consideration of those who are considering adding ham radio to their suite of preps. Field Day is an annual event sponsored by American Radio Relay League for hams to exercise their ability to operate away from their home ...

Re: 2 meters: recommendations & education please

Woods, First, congratulations on getting your license; I hope the hobby is as rewarding to you as it’s been to me. Unless money is not an issue, I’d build a few antennas before buying a more powerful radio. Particularly in the vhf/uhf range there is way more bang per buck in improving your antenna g...

Re: Tiny House in East Tennessee: should we build or go pref

I've recommended this before because it buys some time. How about building a nice steel shop/garage on a slab and living in that while you figure the rest of it out. You are probably going to want one anyway, it will run the same as the prefab shed option and last a lot longer.

Re: Where to start w/pressure cooker and dehydrator

We use our pressure cooker for canning, but it gets used more for making stock. We keep plastic bags in the freezer for beef bones and chicken carcasses. The bones go in their respective bags either raw or after cooking. Whenever a bag is full it goes into the pressure cooker with water, celery, car...

Re: Sometimes you can do nothing

First, thanks for all of the kind responses; it wasn't expected. I thought there would be a technical discussion on prioritization of care, airway clearing etc. The concern for our wellbeing is humbling. Secondly, I avoided commenting on the seatbelt issue, but it was, no doubt, what allowed the eje...

Sometimes you can do nothing

Yesterday, I was up in my barn doing the morning chores when I heard a wreck. Screeching brakes followed by a series of crunches. I'd heard it before, the sound of a rollover accident. I dropped,what I was doing and ran out of the barn to see a pickup truck in my front pasture. I hit 911 as I ran fo...

Re: Tying up nutso passenger on flight

I'd start with the seat belts the flight attendants use to demonstrate their proper use in the preflight brief. Three or four of them would probably do the trick.

On the air from Djibouti

Today I received my license from the government of Djibouti, call sign J20MG. I intend to operate 80-6 meters from now until the end of the year so if there is anyone who wants to attempt a sked let me know. We are 8 hours ahead of the east coast so when I get home from work it is about 9 AM on the ...

Re: Local beavers.... I think!

I'd say beavers too, but I'm no expert. I suspected beavers at my place, but a local expert said we didn't have beavers in the area. I took him down to the creek and showed him the gnawed sycamores and he said, "Oh, shit! Beavers!" That being said, I have not seen one of them despite the amount of w...

Re: Beartooth - Walkie talkie smartphone case?

Looks like this device is fixing to ship in December but as a stand alone device and not a wrap around. At $179 a pair it looks interesting.

I would rather have seen Earl come to market but that dog is dead.
