Galaxy 19 If you find a good (understandable) calculator, let me know. We had a close call with it, (the unit was clicking and flashing red) but we pulled though without any digital hiccups. It's interesting that yours did almost the same thing ours did. I wonder why it was "fritzing" lik...

Satellite excitement

Between GC sessions yesterday, at about 11:05am (PDT) we lost video and audio feeds. Completely went dead. Went to the a/v closet to find the poor satellite receiver having the electronic equivalent of an epileptic seizure. Status lights flashing multiple colors, relays clacking and the lcd display ...

Glad to know I am not the only one with this issue. It seems that the Aironet 1200 is obsolete. I looked at Cisco's website and they dont make or support it anymore. I might recommend the latest and greatest version, however each access point is over 700 dollars and we would be needed probably 4 or...

That is what the help desk told me anyways. I do not know if it is the mos appropriate solution. I am going to give them a call today and try to figure that end of it out before I proceed.

NBEMS - Amateur Radio program

Have you ever heard of NBEMS ( Narrow Band Emergency Messaging System) ? It's a set of programs used to send messages and files via Amateur Radio using an audio interface. I read about this in the August 2009 issue of QST. Rather interesting and best of all FREE! Software at: http://www.w1hkj.com/NB...
