Second Report About Local Polka Show
Last week I added a note to the Oompah Hour notice about a 2-hour polka show on WEW St. Louis. Again this week I listened and heard a polka version of “Christmas Dream”, a song previously mentioned on the Christmas Music thread. I figured I could find this on YouTube which has almost all music, but no…[Read more]
Blocking Our Own Access
Radio Joe said: “If I had a choice I would put it in some kind of cabinet that you could get at the back of.”
Exactly the problem I have here at KDX. The heart of the wiring is trapped in a corner with no way to reach it without hanging from the ceiling. Whenever I need to make a change we almost have to dismantle the whole house.
There are many BIG MARKET radio stations that are not anywhere as organized as what we see in the pictures.
The shelving is made from an interesting material, maybe particle board?
Come to think of it I am practically within sight of a “big market” but there’s not much to see compared to yours.
The charts and instructions…[Read more]
Speaking as one who has built electronic devices from component parts it is obvious, Joe, that your building skill is superlative. The neatness of your finished product is in the highest class.
A recent edition of This Week in Radio Tech (TWiRT) discussed the several downed towers in Florida following Hurricane Michael and in one case a temporary Inverted L antenna was put up to get a station back on the air.
We suppose that Inverted L would be ideal for indoor AM part 15 to compensate for the fact that ceilings do not usually allow a…[Read more]
The “Honeymooners” was a very funny show with every cast member being a comedic character, thus we can expect that IF Brian Carney has stories about that program they’ll include back-stage anecdotes about the hilarity that took place among the actors and staff.
And no doubt Brian’s overall show biz experience will be loaded with…[Read more]
Last Minute Reprieve
In the spirit of fairness I gave a listen to this week’s Stuphile and realize I was prematurely spooked about “Christmas content”. What was found is that Peter Anthony Holder interviews an actress who plays a mean boss in a light-hearted holiday movie, not too much candy and sugar… so his current program will be aired on…[Read more]
The Hour of Slack
Every Sunday morning the Reverend Stang and the SubGenius Chorus pays Worship to BoB in His Heavenly Theme Park in the Sky. This morning we witnessed a Hands Off Healing which set right a man’s extreme acne on the hindside.
Coming up next is Peter Anthony Holder’s Stuphfile Program, usually featuring odd news stories, but this…[Read more]
Second Delivery Attempt
KDX Worldround Radio will be contacting the management with suggestions for improving the member experience when trying to post links and make edits on the forum site.
Meanwhile, we want our many stations to have access to this historic program, so we’ll try again to get you connected.
Exclusive for This Forum
Of tens of thousands of forums on the internet only Part15.org has been chosen for a rare Christmas treat.
In 2012 Blare OnAir Lite did a short program featuring the Christmas Carol from Frank Loesser’s Greenwillow.
The Ebay listing for this transmitter is marked “Sold – This listing has ended”.
Anyway, your picture of the circuit board looks very neat and well laid-out.
If this transmitter is in short supply it may not be of use to most.
We’ll watch to see if it re-appears.
What I See
Mark, even though you are over there in Canada, you have shown over the past time that you are a solid person with definite points of view.
Maybe you could be the leader of the ALPB in the future.
If you chose to do so, I would consider returning as a member.
What Can We Estimate About Plasma Antennas for Part 15 Use
As yet we have encountered no schematic picture showing the input and design of a plasma antenna, so for the time being we can visualize and imagine what they look like and how they connect to transmitters.
Because plasma antennas are not “wire” as described…[Read more]
Like many I grew up in front of floor model radios that were taller than I was at the start.
That solid thump of the bass and clarity of sound was one of their distinctions, along with possibly adding a bit of heat to the room in winter time.
For a short time in the 1900’s I took in several older radios with intentions of…[Read more]
Jim had visions for the ALPB but ran out of time before he could carry them out.
The way he went about building Honeybrook Radio was inspiring and these part 15 forums were useful for helping him learn “on the job”.
Jim was a great gentleman and is very much missed.
