Brace yourselves. This is almost too much. Prepare for sensory overload and possible palpitations. Wow. This is really amazing. Note the very casual way Paul manages to mix Eico 430 oscilloscopes with the latest Tek touch-screen 'scope. Heck, the doesn't even mention the SP-600s! He does briefly note "a very large transmitter." Indeed. And he has a microscope on the bench.
This video is part of an excellent YouTube channel called "Mr. Carlson's Lab." Great stuff in there. Paul works on everything from old tube type receivers to modern Yaesus and Icoms.
It took me a little digging to find his ham radio call sign. There are many Paul Carlsons on QRZ.com, but Paul's pronunciation of "solder" gave him away. It seems our Canadian friends also (like the Brits) pronounce the "L." VE7ZWZ.
In response to popular demand, "SolderSmoke -- Global Adventures in Wireless Electronics" is now available as an e-book for Amazon's Kindle.
Here's the site:
For the print version:
For shipping from a printer in the U.S. (probably better for N. American buyers) Click here: SolderSmoke USA Version
For shipping from a printer in the UK, Spain, or the USA (probably better for UK and other European buyers)
Click here: SolderSmoke EU Version
The two versions are identical, except for a minor difference in the paper used. That's why the prices are a bit different.
