Carl! I have a little hole of time in which
to do some stuff for MICRO1.69/1.7.
I’m just going to start stuffing a big perf
board with parts that will eventually be some
kind of new transmitter for 13.560.
It will take me a couple of days to identify
the parts. Unlike last time, the board will
be bigger so I can see the solder connections
better. So there will be room to put in a
buffer stage. So this thing will probably be
Sorry I still haven’t been able to send you a
picture of the Gates Board. Our main computer
was badly messed up by a virus. Hopefully, I
will get the picture to you soon with some others.
I am also winding a new coil for the SS-Tran.
As you know my station is called MICRO1690/1700,
but it has gone by many other names over the last
40 years. But the room the station is in actually
has a different name. It is “The Dog Radio Studio.”
This is because it has been the sleeping and resting
room for our dogs. Actually, the room is really
“Dog Radio Studio 2,” because the original set-up
was upstairs, and only Studio 2 is left.
Here is the sad part. I had a beautiful yellow labrador
retriever – a wonderful 14 year old dog that spent
much of her time in that room as she went into
the autumn of her life.
She was very smart and affectionate, she
always obeyed commands, and did not complain
when she was in pain near the end.
Last Sunday she passed away. I was there. Now
I miss her very much. There are two other dogs in
our house and they are great. But they are not
“Betty,” our great yellow dog that we rescued when
she was 8 years old.
The other dogs will be in “Dog Radio Studio 2,”
but it won’t be the same.
Maybe in honor of Betty I should just end my
posts this way from now on…
Here we go.
