RE: Communications Equipment / Radios

Be fore-warned..... A new ham license and an empty credit card is a really toxic mix :)

RE: Fire suppression system

AFFF Auto trigger in the engine compartment. 2- Halon Auto trigger just removed from the NORCOLD when I replaced the cooling unit with Helium. Might not replace those

RE: What is the best BBQ grill

Had lots of RV grills until the BabyQ. If they ever quit making them I'll by a spare just in case. Sound guy: You gotta get to using that thing... It's WAY too clean

RE: Determining city to city distance

Or Post Office to Post Office?Every zip code has a post office, so unless you're going between 1-horse towns that doesn't work. Driving into Los Angeles thats 60 miles wide in all directions, the mileage signs on the road are the distance to City Hall. There's only one per town. Then probably a PO if thats all there is

RE: Using "mode" on Allison transmission

It's nothing more than an econo mode for the transmission that lets it lumber in its present gear a little longer before shifting. I run it in that mode all the time and rarely if ever change it out. Diesels love to run in the torque curve and this keeps it there a little longer. If you re coming from a gas world it's going to sound unnatural letting the engine run that slow, but it's happy

RE: Trouble receiving directv channels with hr24 reciever

The HR24 can be really snarky when changing configuration, like from SWM to Multiswitch, and often takes a really long time. In the RV set it to 18" and Multiswitch and it should be happy, but it may take a few times to get it there. IIRC, tuner 2 is the DVR but don't remember if the main Rx wants that plugged in to work properly. I actually nuked one trying to do a SWM to Multiswitch swap. DIRECTV sent another receiver but the tech wasn't suprised to hear my story.

RE: Recommendations for volt meter

Probably a good ol' alternator whine choke kit ?

RE: Recommendations for volt meter

What you should be using is a scope to measure this and to see what it is you're looking at. It wouldn't even occur to me to look at ripple down this low with a DVM. I would be way more concerned about lead noise corrupting the reading.

RE: WARNING large inverter chargers

Ill be curious what's on the parts list Frank: don't worry about it. There are hundreds of these on this forum alone. Tuna just got one with a bad part and now once out of repair is likely in better shape than one off the production line.

RE: DirecTV self powered setup meter recommendations?

Ok then I will.... There are none that work well. Either they're just lousy or cannot supply the current needed to run the LNB and need their wall wort to operate Self powered satellite meters are not cheap, and they get really expensive if you expect to do HD alignment. It's easy to search eBay for pricing and adjust your budget to match. Just make sure you know what you're buying. Allot of those found on eBay are not meant for the DirectTV service

RE: Good-quality, waterproof, honest "Warm White" LED strip?

Anything 2700k or below is in the household incandescent range. 3200k Halogen is a typical parking lot light, and is also the standard TV studio temp reference.. Too "white" for me when you're trying to wind down.. Some of these guys selling WW LED's are really stretching what a WW temp really is

RE: I-Phone Sat Finding App

Well the app used to be called Dish Pointer AR. All I can find now is their "Pro" version Dish Pointer AR Pro There used to be a much cheaper version. It might be still there for the iPhone but I'm looking from an iPad

RE: Force router reset while away

Footnote: I've been up in San Jose all week and stopped by Fry's today on the way to the airport. I happened across 4 guys ironically in the switch and router isle, 2 from Google, and the other 2 from the Cisco campus. These guys were clearly nerds, not sales or admin guys. We got to talking and I finally asked if any if their installs anywhere used IP controlled power management devices? One of the Cisco guys said "sure".. I asked "why", and told them about this discussion. Same guy said "Sh** happens. Our equipment is all over the world where in some places it's a two day trip to get to (and that's MY problem) or customers simply can't can't staff the data centers. Nothing's perfect". And his final comment was "why not?" This from the premiere enterprise manfacturer of everything from switches to business class phone systems. Good enough for me..

RE: Force router reset while away

i have never seen power cords labeled directly to the outlet.So, you were doing it wrong. mike this will be my last post on the subject but if we ever told a customer that power cycling was required to keep our equipment operating correctly, they would tell us to remove it and send us home. I'm sorry you have to work with equipment that apparently needs enough power cycling that you had to go to the trouble to actually put in power cycling pdu's. and when you work in a large DC, you will realize they use dedicated electricians to actually run the power. i am a contractor, i have worked with 100's of customers in 100's of DC's, i have never seen what you describe done in practice ever. yanking power on enterprise equipment to fix a issue is simply an unacceptable answer.I think as a vendor you know as well as we the customers do that things break in software as well as hardware and simply need rebooting wether the cause is firmware or hardware related, it happens and you know it does. I'm sure you are also well aware that IT support is often not in the location where the problem occurs. So as a vendor how do you suggest that the customers IT dept deal with equipment that simply needs a cold boot? Enterprise equipment is not bulletproof as you suggest. If that were the case they wouldn't need a CS dept would they? I cannot imagine what DC's you frequent that engineeed their facilities so poorly that it requires human intervention to do a simple cold boot because a device is feeling cranky.
