  • A guy I found hanging around a work site a couple years ago. CJ

  • Bigger generators adjust for differing loads to keep the speed closer to desired. Throw on a heavier load, like a big AC unit kicking on, and listen to it load and slow and then pick back up. All normal. I'd suspect that unit adjusts for load t…
  • A few years ago, a guy I work with went by "briefly" to work on a Saturday morning to take care of something. He's very thoughtful that way and very caring about leaving no one hanging. He said his car missed a bit the last few blocks coming in, b…

  • I did a build based on those plans posted at AK. Made this one for a friend. I pretty much used the plans and used modest ply. Added wheels to make it movable. CJ
  • Trust placed in the Pied Piper seems reasonable in the beginning. Then there is "the rest of the story..." Someone that places all faith in numbers, haphazardly taken with equipment they think they know more about than the manufacturer and then …

  • The idea of a shield is that you're draining any noise to a ground. So if you are inducing that noise to ride down that conductor, do you prefer to take it to a point that's firmly held low impedance like an output? Or would you rather drain it to…
  • I'm just not sensing the compassion you'd think you'd see for the homeless! Maybe some helping hands for the downtrodden.....Ha...ha....ha.... CJ Go Chefs!!!!
  • FWIW....there is a ton of different Mogami numbers. They make a great product, but it you select a wrong product for the use you put in in, then it may not be satisfactory. For instance...if you select a really neat small diameter, low capacitan…
  • I am very glad to hear that George is ok. Thanks for passing along that word! Hope he and his lovely bride can get things fixed back up and then get moved back north where it's safer! Seems like every year we have to worry if his pool is becomi…

  • Since you keep trying to reduce the scope to just half the signal path, lets go to one thing that hasn't been mentioned yet. Solid is a design for wire that's not moved around, stranded for flexibility and being moved around. That said, I've alw…
  • Maybe some of those up thread crowing about how much Nike stock lost in value yesterday may not be aware that the company is into an aggressive stock buy back plan. Perhaps this campaign is multidimensional planning... CJ
  • Wish I could tell you. I have no idea. I was just asked to find out for them what was wrong that could cause such problems with a strong signal. It was enough RF level to be shocking. So by all rights it shouldn't have been a problem to get reso…
  • Actually that is a very key point! What was ok yesterday will almost certainly be different tomorrow. We got devices all over our homes putting noise only our power lines today! I just chuckle when folks bring up the ol' "what about the miles o…
  • Actually they do often get up to FM boadcast band frequencies. Which is why many complaints at residential situations of poor reception are eventually traced to the high dollar bulbs. A couple years ago, I was involved in a case of investigating…
  • For those installing those high noise LED bulbs, you probably can just forget radio reception and start looking at noise reduction methods for the power to your audio systems. It's just the other side to the "advantages" being sold. CJ
  • While the electrical work is being done, do yourself a huge favor and... - Balance the load. Look for things that can easily move between the legs that will even out the loading. Good loading reduces distortions. - Move noisy loads (motors i…
  • Every minute you live, your ears and brain are working, listening. You do develop certain expectations and assumptions, but they are a learned over your entire lifetime. So you don't have to know exactly what the first microphone picked up to kn…
  • Part of the load a pre drives is that normally listed R value, but there is also the question of the complex impedance. As in how capacitive is the load? That's why different units work better together, or not. A passive is not just fighting th…
  • I found that a tube change in the Freya was not just good but really necessary. The stock Ruskie's were quickly exceeded with others... On the Freya, you have 3 different modes you can run in. Running balanced anyway, the levels differ enough t…
  • Here is one of the great stories out of the "Miracles Out Of Nowhere". https://youtube.com/watch?time_continue=56&v=bEGPf1AiH4I They literally created their own big break...with beer! CJ
  • Going to see this week...so appreciate the review comments. Really looking forward to it! For Kansas fans...if you haven't seen it, you should pursue finding the excellent thing they put together on their origins, Miracles Out Of Nowhere. Some …
  • There is a saying... "Sometimes the best luck is no luck at all". Guess that makes me pretty lucky then.... Getting in there and going for it though was the right thing to do. You never know what can happen...unless you don't play at al…
  • If you're only 48 hours in, then you've got a whole bunch of better yet coming up. Wait until you reach full bloom! It's fun hearing it as it all comes together. The Yggy has a warm up/ break thing like no other. CJ

  • I'm in the total eclipse path and I've heard it said that it will also damage your phone's camera lens and to not point it at the sun either. I'm not in a position to judge the truthfulness of this, just heard it said and it does sound like it make…
