Anyone have a schematic for an S350 or S350 DL? by Stephan Grossklass
Brenda Ann schrieb: I got 2 S350's and 1 S350DL pretty cheap. Got one of the S350's working (all three had been reverse polarized on the power, and the protection diodes were all shorted), Not a very smart construction there. At 6V supply, a kludge like a protection diode in parallel...

An open letter to all the "pirate" posters by fred engels
Let's face it the f¢¢ doesn't care about "pirate" they said so last April: "stopping pirate radio is not at the top of the priority list" and this is especially true about shortwave "pirates." The so called pirates posted here are in fact just ham geeks clowning around, if in fact if they were...

Anyone care to discuss this on ham radio? by Zeppelin
People are afraid of mental illness and stigmatize it. It needs to be talked about openly and in public. Most -if not all- people are mentally ill to varying degrees. It should be mandatory for health insurance to cover mental illness just as cancer is covered. Shame due to mental illness is an...

No lights at night? No cars? No trucks? No noise? No pollution? No television. Hmm. Getting the night sky back and being able to enjoy the majesty of space and the stars sounds good to me. Dig the back to nature simplicity of it all. And maybe the people actually talk to each other like the...
