RE: new hd antenna

Rescanning for Dots changes by manfacturer BTW. We have added as many as 3 additional channels on a single stream at one time. Some Tv's require a rescan to show anything, and others will show the Dots as long as the primary was scanned in the first place.

RE: flickering house lights

What we need now is additional info from the OP

RE: new hd antenna

I wish I had flat ground as well, but thats also why when I do these its on a windless, cloudless day, and both tests are done back to back as fast as possible. I have the same equipment in all the major cities but no motorhome :(

RE: flickering house lights

Ok let the arguments begin. Will you define flickering, one could mean dimming as flickering. Jeff an incandescent light bulb certainly can appear to flicker as you say. In my 40 years as an electrical contractor, I've seen many different situations that could be considered flickering. An inductive load starting can makes bulbs appear to flicker, bad connections, In this case I thing the OP should isolate the converter charger firstWhen he describes and compares a flicker to a florescent, thats pretty specific. He said "like a florescent", not that it is one. And we both know incandescent simply cannot flicker at 60Hz

RE: flickering house lights

The house lights are flickering(like a fluorescent)real fast. Doesn't matter if on shore power, generator or battery.Incandescent lamps cannot flicker like a florescent simply because they cannot switch on and off that fast. Are these LED's you are talking about? THEY certainly CAN flicker that fast. Either way I would check the battery and see if it's disconnected, or electrically open.

RE: Refugio Oil Spill

Yeah.. It appears to be captured in a bay, so as long as there isnt a pounding N>S swell it should be able to be contained there. Carp has its own leakage, but at least its natural

RE: Install WIFI antenna on Batwing Mod

It's 3' just to get to the top of the mast, ~2' on the roof, and from the pix it appears another 2-3' inside the cabinet mebbe. That's why I picked 10' for the comparisons. EDIT: I just went back and looked at the RG-58 data sheet above, and 2.5GHZ isn't even listed (clearly not the one I thought it was). So the best that one can take from this is the losses shown at 1000MHz

RE: Install WIFI antenna on Batwing Mod

RW....Nice install. While everyone talks numbers on all communication cable, in real life a run as short as yours would show no real loss or improvement. Being a short run is the key here.Loss is loss no matter how you slice it, and if you have the RF background to make that statement you should know that. I ran this out when the OP posted this with generic hi-end RG-58, and it works out to roughly 3.6db @ 10', and his run has to be very close if not exceeding that. That's less than 1/2 the power to the antenna. Don't tell people that's not significant.

RE: Food poisoning

---snip--- This is such bad advice I just dont know where to start...For one thing this is exactly how you make antibiotic resistant strains of bacteria that over time morph into some really nasty characters. ---snip---X2 This is exactly what the hospital infection doc said last night while in the hospital with DW. Thats what this guy does for a living, so I think that trumps just "dropping" one and you'll be fine. Thats a very good way to kill yourself by making your body immune to antibiotics. (edit: spellin')

RE: A Bigfoot bites it

When there is an internal explosion like that its going to split at the weakest joints, not at the point of ignition. Fiberglass body, the weak point is the joints on the side where they join the top and bottom. I thought that it would have separated there as well. It did split on the left side at the seam.I suspect one could argue that the weak point lengthwise of that camper is the doorway, and then one side or the other since thats where all the frame joints are. Looks like it opened up on the right side of the door.

Smells like a Bowtie antenna.. Thanks for the pic

RE: new hd antenna

You will find many threads about the Jack and the Batwing here. Not only is the Winegard a superior performing antenna on UHF, it also covers VHF WAY better than the Jack that is simply not built for VHF. While its true that a majority of the stations are on UHF today, that is about to change as we are a out to go through another repack of the channels. So make sure your antenna works well on VHF because you'll need it. Edit: spellin'

RE: My thoughts on the "Rapid Response Team"

There is no question that CW has some really competent people, but a number of clowns as well both in sales and service. One thing you sure don't see elsewhere is a company sponsored forum where people can air their problems, some bordering criminal for the world to see, and usually, publically get a response from the head office.

RE: Thermal Sensor (For Norcold Refrigerator)

Yep. The only way you are going to get that fixed is through an authorized NORCOLD service person. Call NORCOLD and see what they say. Mine was installed the west coast rep. That lives less than 5 mins from me. You might be as lucky

RE: A Bigfoot bites it

Likely a leaking stove as there obviously was very little LP that did this. I saw one of these explode when in Joshua Tree about 1972. Same thing.. Short boom, blew the sides out and the occupant walked out with a headache. Zero flame.

RE: Amazing apps that alert me to rain and ligtning

I've found "Weather Radio" to be a good app for storm warnings, etc. It uses the phone's GPS to localize the warnings to your location, or you can choose from multiple saved locations. Many alert setting options, and it's available for both Android and iOS phones. The Android version is $4.99 and well worth it in my opinion.Thats the one. It just sits in the background and works

RE: solar powered home made air conditioner!

I also noticed a box knife, and a bare leg with the lid being carved toward the future emergency room patient. I would think the zero humidity in Quartzsite needs no ice at all, only water. But probably allot of it.
