• The Return Of The LLTP????

    December 17, 2023 - Yup, after a rather long pause I have ideas to try out on the LLTP. The Sequencer circuit works and is odd enough but the timing pulses are less than desired yet I want to keep things transistor-less. I am going to regress a bit and try out a rotating drum with multiple tracks that will be either hand cranked or motor driven or both. Copper foil on a stiff cardboard tube should work for a start but not yet sure about the contacts to the drum. Springs, paper clips or ??? Should be interesting.

    September 20, 2023 - Well, it has come to the point that the fixed retirement incomes of my wife and I are no longer enough to keep up with rising prices ( Rent, auto fuel and food ). I did start part time employment at a local senior outreach thrift store this week and that income will help out a lot. It will also get me out of the house and away from my other half and that is a good thing as long as she does not read this Lol. I have been much less active with my HaD projects but hope to change that soon.

  • Hot weather and staying inside

    July 9, 2023 - I keep cycling around my different projects. Right now I am getting back into my Ham Radio mode and working on my 40M CW receiver. Very warm if not down right hot and humid weather here in coastal North Carolina and best for my old bones to stay indoors and keep cool.
