    Do you listen to AM Radio???

    Long Live AM Radio The only radio station I find useful in my SF Bay Area is KCBS 740AM. They broadcast news, traffic reports and no rap music. The station is stong in any environment over 100 miles away in all directions. FM stations fade and wane when travelling from pocket to pocket and...

    Mot DSR922 install question

    stone1150 and johnnynobody, You guys hit it right on the head! The magnetic sensor wires in the actuator were not connected to the terminal block per diagram, so the wires to the DSR922 did not send the pulses as intended. All is well now with the bump increments much smaller and the arc...

    hughesnet dish for FTA

    The Hughesnet/Direcway 23 x 39" elliptical works well for FTA in NorCal. The stock LNB is linear and the transmit portion can be removed to lighten the arm. I prefer this dish, its electronics and heavy duty mount over the flimsy imports and am always on the lookout for freebies.
