I often use NOAA Weather Radio broadcasts as propagation beacons.
I listen and note which weather stations are coming in from far away places.
From these observations, I can tell where my own signals might be heard
when operating my ham radios on 2 meters (144 to 148 MHz)
just above the FM broadcast band (88 to 108 MHZ – and –
just below where weather radio broadcasts take place (162 MHz)
I began with a nationwide map of NOAA weather radio stations that you can find at:
and edited it into a handy 8 X 10 printable form
for use by DXers on the East Coast of The United States.
Feel free to distribute it and print it as you like!
You’ve just installed a brand new kitchen unit.
Isn’t it great to have a brand new sink and counter top
along with new cabinets and shelves?
The new fork – knife – and spoon organizer is just too shallow
and slides back and forth in the drawer.
What to do? It’s an easy fix!
Cut a painter’s mixing stick in half to create
two thin and low profile spacers.
Find where they need to be placed
and hold the positioning using a piece of masking tape.
Then drill a single hole on each side to screw them down.
Screw them into place to the back of the tray.
Now the tray doesn’t slide – and –
you can use the space behind the tray
because nothing is in the way!
