  1. Bill, there's nothing wrong with that microphone! But I'm deeply concerned about the poor choice of interconnect cable. You'd best swap that out for some fiber-optic cable quick smart. Make sure you get high quality audio grade fiber-optic cable mind you. ;-)

    Thx again for another great old-fashioned!
    73, Steve

  5. Thanks for another great podcast!

    There's a lot of soul in that microphone, not to mention the old sock. Replacing it with something "store bought" would simply be wrong.

    73!

  6. Bill,

    Now that I see it from another angle versus front on -- just keep up what you are doing --there is soul (not to mention and old sock) in that microphone. Don't fix what isn't broke.

    Pete

  7. Thanks for another great podcast. The Peel Amateur Radio homebrew group, mentioned at the start of the podcast, won 1st prize at FDIM. I am a proud member of the group and it is an awarding project. Thanks to Pete for sharing the project and thanks to Frank VE3FAO for heading the group's project.

  8. Be careful trying to use hard drive platters for dial faces. The smaller, more modern hard drives have glass platters, which will shatter into a million sharp pieces *when* you break one.

  9. Lady Ada has picked up the word "Noodling". Coincidence?
