— With an antenna made from a tape measure.
— And I can't even get NPR in the west part of Topeka...

I really liked The Cloverfield Paradox: (Rotten Tomatoes 19%?!?!) Would I have felt differently if I had waited for six years and saw the other Cloverfield movies? I don't know.

My favorite shows ever?
— Altered Carbon (Rotten Tomatoes only 61%?)
— Black Mirror
— Dollhouse
— The End Of The F***ing World...
— Firefly
— Godless
— Evangelion
— Police Squad
— The AO
— The Crown
— The Walking Dead
The fact that most of them are new, and from Netflix, is surprising to me.

I am building this Arduino-powered “Stranger Things” inspired wall. I am no way related to the show. That should be obvious, but I am throwing the words “stranger things” around, so I feel like I need to say it.

171 KHz, Medi 1 Radio, from Nador, Morocco.
Received in Athens, Greece on January 15, 2018 at 21:54 hrs UTC.
Another excellent reception with strong signal and ...good signal to noise ratio, using my 12x6.5 cm homemade Ferrite Sleeve Loop antenna, inductively coupled to Tecsun's PL-880 internal ferrite antenna.
Compare the difference between coupled and uncoupled FSL antenna.

This is a list of amateur radio links that I am interested in. I haven't tried most of the software and hardware here. These are not recommendations.

I had this experience back during the dot-bomb bust. Obviously, I need to paraphrase here because this conversation happened long ago.

I just added Colorado! I rarely go anywhere anymore, due to my disability, but we did get to Colorado.

I recently participated in online non-credit courses (MOOCs), and I did well. This gave me a real sense of accomplishment. That's something that I miss from my software development days.
I have a college degree, but my disability makes homework a real challenge. This format allows me to study, and attend lectures when I am at my best, which is rare.

I'm now reading the RADAR (radio beacons) and tracking the airplanes. This is a radio experiment and aviation post.
