Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

Yes, TT we remember when it was in Black and White, and Don Pardo was the announcer and you got to sit down at your little desk with a fresh solo cup of water? And 2 or 3 guys would pull out the dividers behind the board for the clues? What is the Original Jeopardy! ? It was in color from day one. ...

Re: Larry King dies

I'm surprised he made it this long. Having a stroke that left him in a coma for weeks, losing two of his children in a span of weeks last year and now COVID. Larry was a fighter. He made talk shows pretty much what they are today and was the quintessential news talk show host for years. R.I.P. Larr...

Re: Old TV and Movie Cliches

Also, on the family TV shows. Father and Mother always slept in the same room together, but never in the same bed and never with the lights out. They would each get into their twin beds, sit up for awhile and talk about the days events. Then they would pull blindfolds down over their eyes, lay down...

Re: My Christmas Present Has Arrived!

Curious if you are using an external antenna and also if you are in an upstairs area? Single-story ranch. The telescopic rod for FM/SW extends to about one meter. LW/MW uses the internal ferrite antenna. It also included a 50-meter external long-wire FM/SW antenna that can be strung all over the pl...

Re: My Christmas Present Has Arrived!

I found the manual for the KA1103. You may or may not (I could not find any side pictures of your radio) have a SSB fine tune on the left side of the radio at the bottom. If so, I'm thinking this may tune in whichever sideband you want to listen to. Here's a link to the manual I found for the KA110...

I was looking at the models on CCrane's website, but the radios they have with SSB run about twice what this one cost.

My Christmas Present Has Arrived!

My wife ordered it off eBay last month. Took a while to make the trip from Hong Kong, but well worth the wait! https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/50863062262_c5f3fd7555_k.jpg AM/FM and 10 SW bands. Takes 4 Nimh rechargeable or standard Alkaline cells. Includes DC power/charging adapter and long-wir...

So what you are saying is that God is trying to send a message?

I think they are legit.
You mean like that show God Friended Me?

Answers to questions
There is one big loophole in the Canada / US travel restrictions. They only apply to crossing by land. Not by air or water.
Ahh. So I assume a bridge or tunnel would qualify as a land crossing?

Re: You Be The Judge

Is there a statute of limitation regarding resolution of the prior infractions. Seems to me they would have to resolve those first in order to establish a pattern of repeated offenses. If it's determined that she was aware of company policy and continued to break the rules without regard, the employ...

Re: Ken Jennings as Jeopardy! Host

I think he did well. It had to be a nervous time for him hosting the first show after Alex. Whether it turns out to be his permanent gig is yet to be seen, but given his background and familiarity with both the game and the audience, he would certainly be a natural choice. I thought Ken's words at t...

Re: Social Distancing in Gothenburg

I bet shortwave reception would be great at the top of that lighthouse. The surrounding water would provide even better conductivity. My SSB shortwave radio (Christmas present from the wife) is still yet to arrive, but I'm gonna have a blast with that toy!
