After having tested thousands of diodes over the corse of my career, there was once a time where I found myself unnecessarily unsoldering diodes to test them due to the fact that other components in parallel with the diodes under test would give me confusing readings, but after realizing almost Continue reading Diode check function has its limits. Bad diodes generally short out.
I just had the misfortune of watching my drone take off in a direction of its own this morning, and I was wondering what kinds of unwanted signals drones operators need to be cautious about?
The drone I lost was as bugs 2 with GPS, FTP, auto return Continue reading Unwanted signals that can hijack your drone?
In this video I demonstrate a couple of different uses I discovered by applying a small current across some nickel chrome wire. I doubt I’m the first person to use this wire in such an application for this wire, but for those who not aware of these possible applications, I Continue reading Home made resistors, and other uses for nickel chrome wire.
This is a lecture I gave on on pay TV alternatives at the Rascals Computer Club. January 23 2018
One of the challenges I’ve encountered when installing TV antennas is knowing exactly where to point my antenna, and where to mount the antenna. I discovered that moving an antenna just a few feet vertically or horizontally can make a huge difference in signal strength, so I came up with Continue reading Television Signal Direction Finder And Frequency Indicator.
After 7 plus years of making videos on TV repair and electronics, I thought it would make a video on something a little off beat. TV repair Gods. Have you heard of them? If you listen to these stories you will understand the title.
http://www.tvrepairinfo.com/ Last year I started doing some television antenna jobs on the side for some of the folks here in the Grants Pass, and I found myself getting a quick education on the do’s and dont’s of TV antennas. I guarantee there is still much I don’t Continue reading Digital TV Channel Misunderstandings, & TV Antenna Myths.
I had made a previous video called free energy Vs the laws of physics, and I had talked about some of the devices people built, hoping they could build what amounts to a free energy motor. or better known as a perpetual motion machine. Shortly after I made the Continue reading The mysterious back spike is not free energy,
http://www.tvrepairinfo.com/ The television I repaired in this video is a Samsung UN32EH5300FXZA. I had mis-stated the model number in this video so please take note. This TV came in my shop dead. My first guess was bad LEDs since I see this so often, but it turned Continue reading Samsung TV Main board was bad. Here’s how I figured it out. Model # UN32EH5300FXZA.
This video was made some time ago. Playing with the charges that make lightning can be a high risk experiment, but since my long wire antenna has a ground and a spark gap, I think It’s probably safe enough.
