    Sweet tea isn't only for the south. I grew up on sweet tea, it was made by the gallon.

    I still brew some in bulk occasionally, usually in the summer months. But I'm a sucker for just buying a bottle when at the gas station.

    Looks like tomorrow morning there will be a very good pass of the SO-50 satellite. I've made contact with it once but it's not common to get great overhead passes like this.


    "SO-50 carries several experiments, including a mode J FM amateur repeater experiment operating on 145.850 MHz uplink and 436.795 MHz downlink. The repeater is available to amateurs worldwide as power permits, using a 67.0 Hertz PL tone on the uplink, for on-demand activation. SO-50 also has a 10 minute timer that must be armed before use. Transmit a 2 second carrier with a PL tone of 74.4 to arm the timer.

    The repeater consists of a miniature VHF receiver with sensitivity of -124dBm, having an IF bandwidth of 15 KHz. The receive antenna is a 1/4 wave vertical mounted in the top corner of the spacecraft. The receive audio is filtered and conditioned then gated in the control electronics prior to feeding it to the 250mW UHF transmitter. The downlink antenna is a 1/4 wave mounted in the bottom corner of the spacecraft and canted at 45 degrees inward."​

    @MannDude That is pretty cool I like the thought of communicating with something in space.

    Been testing some chairs at work recently. I can't decide which one I like better.

    I like the feel of the red chair but I like the cooling of the Blue chair. umm

    My great aunt passed away a few weeks ago. She was 92.
    We were friends since I could talk.

    As time went on I realized that she lived a very comfortable life, and worked as the assistant to the CEO of one of Oregon's power plants. I'm not a hand-out guy, I'm more of "the best things in life are free" type. As often as she brought up her Will in her final years, I'd just as often tell her that I wasn't interested.

    This week I learned...she left me just over a quarter of a million dollars. I'm still in shock.
