The date and time zulu:

What if: Engineering design modifications to AA5 AM radios to run on 240V AC
Radio cabinet styling WHAT IF for the late 50's
Operate an AA5 AM radio on 100V AC: diagram
Modify the AM detector in an AA5 for better modulation acceptance and fidelity
Negative feedback in AA5 audio amps
Hi Fi wideband broadcast AM reception mods for AM/FM stereo tuners and receivers

🎄 Variable and random brightness Xmas lights
OpenWRT WRT54G USB mod and a USB mod in an OpenWRT WRT54G v2 to use thumb drives as AREDN or home intranet web page servers
nearly equal spaced frequency AM dial
Heater voltage dropping capacitor, how to select
AA5 radio sensitivity enhancements page.
Electronic vacuum tube volume control using dual control pentodes and a remote control DC bias.
More electronic vacuum tube volume controls using common tubes: either a 6HS8 TV tube or 6BE6 pentagrid radio tubes, and a remote control DC bias.
Modifying CD players so the DAC chips inside drive tube amplifiers directly without op-amp circuits.
What if: Radio that never was, single tube "AA5"
Some vacuum tube Spice 3f4 models I made up.
And some vacuum tube spice 3f4 models from elsewhere on the 'net.
And some done by Andrei Frolov
And some done using Andrei Frolov's software
And a zip file of some from Ayumi's Lab
And another zip file again from Ayumi's Lab
If you can read Japanese: Ayumi's Lab web page, I can't read it, but it looks interesting
RADIO LINKS to other web sites, lots of 'em!
Power and Streetlights
A program to make use of that cat bar code scanner you got at radio shack. It sends the bar code data to any program that expects keyboard entry.
My Patents


July 1987 to Jan 1991:
Discovered newsgroups late '87, unix based "rn" newsreader

April 1991 to April 1993:
Unix "rn" again, at 1200 baud on a VT100! With the terrible boss I had there, it was "Hell Labs"

May 1993 to 2000:
A unix shell personal account at a commercial ISP, more "rn".

Nov 1996 to now:
wanted access to the WWW, and a web page!
And back in 2008 got my own domain,

Guess this makes me an Internet old-timer.
