Re: July Tropo

CJOS 92.3 "The Dock" has become a regular catch here lately. About all I have to say about this station is that THE AUDIO SOUNDS OVER PROCESSED, OVER MODULATED, and generally horrible.

Re: Actual Trump Tweet

The fact that there is a difference between racism and nationalism seems to be lost on some. I'm still trying to figure out if most of those screaming racism really believe what they're saying or it they're just doing it to change the subject from that of Trump taking pride in his country and calli...

Re: Review: Cheap $17 portable radio with 7-band SW from Menards; how well does it work?

The most interesting AM radio in my collection is a console radio - the Kenwood Basic T2. Why is it interesting? Because it has a variable AM bandwidth slider...I believe it works by mixing the output from 2 different internal filters - one at 3khz width and one at 12khz width (as best I recall from...

Re: 2020 - 2024 Predictions

I don't hold much regard for what you think anyway. I'm sure it's mutual, so no lost sleep. You don't have to agree with my politics - but this is a predictions thread. And if you look back through the archives in this forum you'll see that my predictions regarding and analysis of the 2016 Presiden...

Re: 2020 - 2024 Predictions

So you're agreeing with me. I said it makes no sense politically to do it, hence, he won't.

And it is no secret that a VP choice, regardless of party, is ALWAYS a purely political move. Always has been, always will be.

Re: 2020 - 2024 Predictions

Trump has no reason to dump Pence. Priority #1 for him will be winning. Do you think that he thinks that dumping Pence and putting Ivanka into that slot will somehow increase his chances of winning?

Re: 2020 - 2024 Predictions

Trump already said just a few weeks ago that Pence is 100% his VP in 2020. My predictions: -Trump/Pence run in 2020 -Biden gets nominated by the Dems -Biden's VP choice is anybody's guess, but I seriously doubt it will be Harris, Warren, or Bernie. If I HAD to pick one I'd go with Stacey Abrams or B...

Re: Review: Cheap $17 portable radio with 7-band SW from Menards; how well does it work?

I got big into collecting them between like 2011 and 2015 but haven't added to my collection since then. I like the Grundigs - cosmetically they're some of the coolest-looking radios out there and they perform very well. If I were ever going to buy another Grundig, I'd like either an Ocean Boy 820: ...

TT - that's a nice radio as well. My collection isn't as large as yours and I don't have any Sony's. But I know I did almost buy a 5900 a few times, just never did. CK - that was me who posted that - been quite a while back now. Was Grundig Satellit 2400-SL. http://www.radiocorner.de/candies/satelli...

I have quite a collection of portable radios, and the gem of my collection is this Japanese import: https://herculodge.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8341c6d1b53ef01901d516bec970b-pi A Panasonic RF-1188. I bought that 7 or 8 years ago from Yahoo Auctions Japan for something like $250 shipped, and in nearly pri...

Nancy Pelosi encourages illegal aliens to defy ICE

An ICE deportation warrant is not the same as a search warrant. If that is the only document ICE brings to a home raid, agents do not have the legal right to enter a home. If ICE agents don’t have a warrant signed by a judge, a person may refuse to open the door and let them in https://www.national...

Re: Trump Turns Beet Red with Anger at Fox News

Not only commenting on it, but crying wolf, repeatedly. SG has cried wolf on Trump well over a hundred times, yet, our country is still standing, and Trump's approval rating just hit a new all-time high in an ABC/Washignton Post poll where he just hit 47. Worth noting about that poll is that in that...
