RE: A Better Plug In AC Volt Meter

In nine thousand words or less how do I copy and paste a link that is account addressed so that everyone can read it and not get a "The number you have dialed is not in service"? Remember this "fold-art" is an analog personality struggling in a digital environment. I heard that..EZ: * Click in the web address field at the top of your screen so the cursor is blinking somewhere in there. * Press: CTRL + A (Select ALL) * Press: CTRL + C (Copy all this) Come back here to the form and start typing to post as you normally do. NOW, you can paste the link two ways: * Press: CTRL + V (Paste what you just copied) This will get the job done and also cause people to whine because its not clickable, but thats OK because someone will fix it. OR.. If you click on the little globe with a chain link on it, you will have a window pop up. In there it will ask to enter the full address. Well you already have it because you copied it earlier, so * Press: CTRL + V (Paste what you just copied) The line below allows you to call it what you want, like this: Mex's Cool Pick o' de Week Give it a try. You can't break the server.

RE: Does antennea need to be digital???

Like NBC Channel 3 here in Las Vegas. It is broadcast on VHF channel 2. I wonder if the Jack antenna can pick that up? I know the Batwing can!:B

RE: 555 Timer RC Calculations For Strobe

Mex, Why use an opto isolator? Why not just trigger the solid state relay directly (or maybe hit a one stage driver) (I think the 555 will only source 20 mA or so)- and eliminate the isolator and MOSFET?Actually 200ma. I used to use these for repeater carrier delay timers and drove the relay direct. It's a pretty tough device

RE: Computer Based Radio

I also use the internet for a radio scanner now. All of the local police went digital and all of my older scanners don't work anymore. So now i listen to the locals and anywhere else I used to live at and keep tabs on what is going on POLICE wise. Roy Ken Is there an app for that or a website for finding scanner info? There are a ton of scanner apps out there but I'd recommend Police Scanner +. Here is an article about it - http://www.zipscanners.com/resources/best-police-scanner/#15 You can also pick up digital signals on a police scanner - you just need a digital scanner (not an analog or trunked scanner), which will run you $400-$500, to get them.that's the APCO25 protocol, but it doesn't mean that you can pick up encrypted transmissions, and unfortunately a large number of police and fire departments are going that way.

RE: 2014 Ford Explorer

The current Explorer is very similar in size, power, and tow capability to my Highlander. The HL was ok with a 2700 lb TT everywhere except in the Rockies, where it sometimes would need 2nd or 3rd gear at about 40 mph to get over a long, steep grade at high altitude. Thinking about replacing the HL soon, so I test drove a Sport. The turbo is definitely better for towing, if one is buying new. But if you already have a non-turbo Explorer, yes it can do the job as long as you don't want to win races up hills.just make sure that turbo is rated to tow. When I bought mine there was only the stock engine rated to tow. While it's OK with 3k behind me, you better be patient with it.

RE: Does antennea need to be digital???

VHF - UHF ????? You need the UHF adapter for the Batwing antenna (of course they do not call it out correctly). (Small wave length). There are still some VHF station out thereJust to avoid confusion, this is NOT an "adapter" as in if you don't have it, UHF doesn't work. It makes an already better forming antenna than the Jack even better. BTW- there are LOTS of VHF stations out there and they're not moving.

RE: Told Ya! 6.8 A/H Lithium Battery With Charger Under $20

Look at the 20,000 MAH battery pack for $79.99. Clicky BillI fly with a 12,000ma pack and it doesn't have anywhere near the cap it claims. This one is 50% smoke at least! and WAY over priced

RE: 555 Timer RC Calculations For Strobe

Mex, Perhaps you could just put a 1 meg linear pot in there and adjust till you get the effect you are after? Stevethat's what I'd do, but probably only 100k 10T with ~10k in series

RE: 2014 Ford Explorer

I rented one once, It was the current generation with AWD so it had the non-turbo 3.5 V6. I towed a loaded 12ft enclosed trailer and the V6 seamed to struggled. I was in Denver, Colorado. But regardless the 2.0 and 3.5 are a let down from what the explorer use to be. Its not even a SUV now its a crossover. They do have the 3.5TT in the sport but it still doesn't have the towing capacity.agreed.. This ain't your moms Explorer by any stretch. It's nice and heavy but underpowered for any consistent towing IMO

RE: 555 Timer RC Calculations For Strobe

If I can find my TTL Cookbook, it has an RC graph. I built many many projects with these in their time and they were lots of fun. If you are firing a real strobe, be aware that the discharge will play havoc with any receiver in the area.

RE: TV Antenna

It's actually a directional antenna and it is the biggest piece of junk ever made. These are standard issue on ENG news trucks and they destroy themselves very fast, I know, I used to fix/ replace them. They are literally built with styrofoam and tape. Buy one and you'll see. Buy a Batwing or a Jack

RE: Camping world lying? Outrageous response Las vegas

pass the popcorn, here come the cheerleaders Jim Lol ya the camping world police is out in force. You better get a x-large bag. yep .... the thing is, the chronic defenders regardless of the post and the chronic critics regardless of the post aren't worth paying much attention to Jimand that includes the two you responded to I have had my one experience with their crappy service never again, so ya I have been there.yep.. I had A&E levelers and a storage pod installed years ago and everything was fine. However there seem to be several that haven't been that lucky. Having said that, the whiners can do what they do best, but since Marcus has been around the forums he and the back office have been far more pro-active at resolving problems than ANY dealership or install shop I'm aware of. Would I buy an RV from them? Probably not. They had their chance and the mentality and attitude of staff made it an easy decision I won't forget. Still, I challenge all the whiners to find another company this size that resolves problems better than this one. Off the box..

RE: Solar Tax Credits

I asked my tax lady about solar in my second home and was told it applies to primary residence only. all I get to do is deduct interest, etc. from my taxes bumpy Well this morons tax guy says it is legal in this state since the motorhome is considered a second home, so the solar was deducted. As far as batteries are concerned... Don't push it... Wether or not you can tie those together, I doubt you will find an auditor that understands the story you whipped up. Looks like two "experts" have different opinions.If you have nothing to say, don't. And if you were paying attention you would have noticed that BOTH comments came from a CPA or tax person. Besides, Bumpy is in a completely different state. So lighten up...
