RE: Circuit diagram

Doesn't power anything ... it's a secure container for Magic Smoke. xkcd is awesome - been a fan for quite some time. Now available in the convenient "I really screwed up" jumbo jar at your local NAPA and Radio Shack Stores. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/Smokekit2_zpsa69f17ed.jpg height=300 width=300

RE: TV antenna on the ceiling

The Winegard Batwing antenna is about the best antenna you can have. Add the Wingman attachment and it is the best. If you have to use a step stool to access the crank then so be.x2 In RV land there is nothing better than the Batwing. There is an electric crankup model, but your step is a whole lot cheaper

RE: A Different Kind Of TV Antenna

These things are all over the place in Quartzsite (not on RV's). The pix i saw from Yuma were consistantly solid but was never able to do a side by side with a Batwing, but its probably better than the Bat.

RE: Whats wrong with California State Parks

Are you sure they arent confusing local city parks? None of those complaints make any sense

RE: Quartzsite - Favorite BLM Area and Why?

I like LaPosa west.... Maybe we'll try camping on the west side next year.(dust) :)X2. I do try to be careful to not be too near a road, and especially the dusty side! The Q can get real dirty. I too don't like noise, and would not be in Scadden.Go North Oldman .. Plomosa is way less dusty, and only Plomosa Rd. noise. Zero from 95 once you move away from the corner

When CW 'reaches out' to a poster, you never hear anymore about it. I wonder why???????????oh my goodness... Is it because the Camping World Customer Satisfaction Squad collects the and turns them all into Soilent Green? Or just maybe they go away happy....

RE: Be aware of this FCC ruling

You clearly have no idea what you're talking about. 1st off that is not a satellite antenna, its an omni (newer generations are servo'd beams) directional antenna pointed at the horizon talking to a terresterial system. Exactly as i said above if you had paid attention. 2nd there are no "hotspots" on an airlner unless they are created by a passenger phone, and even then there is no cell service, hence no hotspots. Check your facts before spouting off. Jamming WiFi or cellular is illegal.. PERIOD. Read the rules ! Further, if you had any understanding of what comprises a "Hotspot" beyond switching on the 2.4Ghz WiFi from your phone, this debate wouldn't be happening. You clearly have no idea how a cellular system works and what happens when an airborne cellphone or MiFi literally hits 500+ cell sites. Whatever point you're trying to make ain't cuttin it and its not part of this thread anyway. Seriously.. Do some homework

RE: Be aware of this FCC ruling

I wonder if this will apply to airlines as well.Airlines dont block anything Yuppers, tell a pilot the airline has put an "radio" that is always on in the aircraft and watch his reaction! Then what's transmitting through this big antenna??? http://i.imgur.com/QoiGASUl.jpgObviously thats a WiFi antenna for the service they provide onboard. What exactly do you think they would be jamming inside of a shielded metal tube? BTW- That is not a WiFi antenna either. It's for a inter-tied terrestrial data network that specifically provides WiFi on board aircraft.

RE: Be aware of this FCC ruling

Fine should have been much more...like a couple million.The FCC often has a very tough time making a reasonably technical case against a judge that simply doesnt understand the ramifications of the charges, and they are often reduced or tossed out, so they get what they can get. Doesn't really matter at this point, they've been found guilty of jamming, and that is a federal offence. The next time around wont be pretty for them at all. At the end of the day there is nothing preventing them (Marriot or anyone else) from constructing screen rooms around any room or facility they choose and theres nothing the FCC could do about it because thats not considered jamming in their eyes and involves no active electronics. They dont oversee construction techniques.

RE: Naked-eye astronomy is more than just meteors.

Its amazing what they did mechanically almost 100 years ago up there. But the one that gets me walking away shaking my head is the light phasing room for the solar scopes. The tolerances in there are simply amazing.

RE: Quartzsite and Joshua tree NP

I'm pretty sure if you look through the recent Quartzsite threads you'll likely find that you're the only one noticing that. We were in the tent at various times, as well as across the street most of the 9 days of the show, and the crowds were more consistent than the past several shows. Or just look for parking.... Up on Plomosa was also more crowded than the past few years

RE: ham or cb radio

Can anyone make some suggestions for a newbie and where to go to learn more about HAM radio operations, hand held models, and licensing procedures? Always been mildly curious about it, but the emergency usage communications is what interests me perhaps the most, after becoming more familiar with it. without an EE, I can imagine there is a lot to learn... Key to me is to not become overwhelmed by the technology, while still learning.DAS26miles just got his last year, he lives close to you and spent allot of time talking to me and a few others about the newer exams, etc. He's had allot of fun playing around in the valley. There are several classes in the area also. As far as emergency comms, this is the way to go. There are several organizations in the area, specifically RACES that exist just for that purpose. There are a couple of very large linked UHF repeater systems that are normally closed, but open up for RACES drills and obviously local emergencies (of which we really only have one...). I own one of the primary repeaters up on Oat. behind you that is linked to this system, as well as a Packet repeater at the house that was the only comms out of Santa Clarita RACES at the Sheriffs station for almost a day after Northridge. Lots of fun, but can get really important in an instant.

RE: Why I NEVER drink campground water

I was born in Winnipeg.Well, that explains it... :) But seriously, maybe I'm a little slow but what in the world does Winnipeg have to do with water in any campground in North America?
