2018-07-09 Country Going To Hell In A Handbasket

From FB group Orange Talk Jul 11 Rebecca Joy You said “Bernie is a socialist” but there is no proof that he would change our government (he is a member of Congress!) to socialism. HC, I assume you mean Hillary, is an experienced bureaucrat who has worked within the bureaucracy, and is not guilty of

2018-07-06 PN2222A Vs. 2N2222A etc.

From FB group Building Transistor Radios Stuart Bca The TO-18 and plastic versions use the same chip and therefore the specifications are the same, except for power dissipation and temperature derating. Both of those depend on the case, and the same holds true for the MMBT2222A in the surface mount package. The TO-18 metal case

2018-06-21 Video Game Cartridges

From FB group James Short What the Game makers did was buy windowless 27C64 EPROMs, for example. That makes them cheaper, but you can only program them once, because they couldn’t be erased. Once they had finalized the firmware, they had it mask programmed into ROMs at the chip factory, because they could order enough

2018-06-14 The 9012, 9013, 9014, 9015, 9018 And Similar Transistors

From the FB group Building Transistor Radios Willie Barnett The generic 901x series are very cheap jellybean transistors used in consumer electronics, typically made in Asia. The 901x was preceded by C, but other companies used other prefixes such a S901x for Fairchild (now ON Semi), or CC901x, or even MPS901x or MMBT for surface

2018-06-12 Casio Watches And A Vivid Dream

First paragraph from FB group Bell Telephone… I had one of these Casio Data Tel watches, but I never used that feature. I used the calculator a lot, though. The buttons got scuffed up badly when I worked in tight places. I’ve had many Casio calculator watches, up until lately when I started using my

2018-05-30 AM Loop Antenna

A comment added to YouTube video Hey, thanks for the very informative video. I have one suggestion. Many of us have no need for the PVC glue stuff after we have completed this project. I think it would be cheaper and better to use screws and holes drilled in the PVC to hold it together

2018-05-03 Taxation Realities

From FB group Orange Talk Robert Baca Nope. I’m not in favor of taxes. And I’m not in favor of illegals either. But you yourself talk about the Barrio, and how the life wasn’t good. I remember when Chapman and Hewes, which was then called Alameda, was unimproved with no curbs, roads just ended and

2018-05-01 “Mess We’re In” Caused By Mindset, Not Illegals

From FB group Orange Talk Melanie Rhoads You said “they are here…” By “they” I assume you mean Illegal aliens. By here I assume this country. If so, there are over 11 million illegals in the country, and over a million of them in California alone. Your “100’s of thousands” is too low by ten

2018-04-28 COs And Short Term Backup Power

From FB group Bell Telephone of the US… Dan Bottoms It seems to me that a good way to avoid generator synch hassles would be to do the same thing that our Exide UPS does. Incoming power is rectified to keep the battery bank charged. It’s passed through to the equipment, until it drops out,

2018-04-26 Ouch! He Gaffed Out While Climbing The Pole

From FB group Bell Telephone of the US… When I was in the army in Germany, one of the guys in my comms unit was a lineman. He asked me where I was from and I said, So. California. He said, “Man I couldn’t live there! They have earthquakes!” I asked him where he was
