    Ham Radio Random Thoughts

    Like the other Random Thoughts thread, only for ham radio-related things that don't warrant a thread of their own.
    All the worlds a stage, but obviously the play is unrehearsed and everybody is ad-libbing his lines. Maybe thats why its hard to tell if were living in a tragedy or a farce.

    I'll get it started:

    Looked up my call sign on PSK Reporter and noticed that I'd picked up three stations in South Africa on 10m over the last 24 hours. Since my antenna, a Moxon beam with a pretty high F/B ratio, is pointed towards Asia right now, I have to assume that reception was long path. Pretty long haul for 10m.

    An 1890s-era home's electrical system sucks for contesting. Who gnu.

    Will have to figure something else out for ARRL Ten Meters.

    I'm wondering when I can arrange to get a re-cap kit for my Yaesu FT 101ZD power supply to get it back into operation..... I miss the damn thing.... I really do
    Why,driving into a brick wall at 60 miles per hour, would I expect it not to hurt! :roll:

    If I sell radio x,y,z, will x+y+z=Flex 6300?

    Or will I need to add radio "w"?

    If you do get a 6300, are you still keeping the other flex, too?

    I probably have most of what you need in my junk box.

    I spent the last week ripping the Cubics out of line and putting the Paragon IIs, Omni V and Omni VI in their place.

    Now, to rebuild the several R7000 receivers sitting above them.

    V(x,p) = v(x)w(p)
    then
    Δ λ/ λ = v/c

    Kahneman, Tversky and Doppler were all acting in kahoots?
    As V(x,p), the Kahneman-Tversky subjective value of a reward (i.e., the Flex 6300) increases; the more it (Doppler) shifts away from our grasp (Δ λ/ λ)?
