From Lithuiania - $135 - has temp, GPS option, etc.



www.tubehobby.com

They also sell miniature (1") CRTs, neon bargraph indicators, etc.  A little 1" CRT would sure be cool on the front panel of a homebrew xmitter!

John. То будет очень хороший эксперимент. Я отрезал бы большое
отверстие перед tranceiver японии. В это отверстие смогите
установить клапан nixie.

It is a bit broken (probably like my English?), but understandable:

John. That will be very good experiment. I'd cut off a big hole in front of transceiver of The Japan. In this hole please be able to install nixie safety valve.

Hi John...

Interesting indeed... after you've installed the "nixie safety valve" into "The Japan" please post a pix of the finished "experiment" for the rest of us...

I don't think it is enough to spend one day only to learn a foreign language, especially such complex one like Russian is.

Correction: into the hole cut in front of Japan, probably somewhere in the sea?  :cool:

He is Cotton de Tulier, we bought him in South Africa, in 1999. Yes, he is our family dog. He is very smart and friendly.

Thanks for the info Tolly.  I took a quick look at a couple of websites.  What an interesting and handsome breed!

A few months ago, I saw one of these that some guy made out of a WWVB-synchronized mechanical clock movement. I found it online when I was doing some research on time coding.

Remember the old micro-nixies they used to use in pocket calculators? Go to the bottom of this page:

http://www.amug.org/~jthomas/clockpage.html

It's amazing how much good technology comes from someone with alotgether too much time on their hands (no pun intended).

Notice how similar the Russian alphabet is to the Greek alphabet.

Нет. Было шуткой. Когда кто-то не может спеть правильно мы говорим
персоне что он не должен прекратить его работу дня. Это намеревается
не спеть для дохода. Огорченно моя грамматика. . Отсутствие проблем с
вашей собакой. Моя собака ненавидит человека ups и человека
столба. Другая шутка о кто-то пеет. Вы спрашиваете персоне пея песню
"вы сделало с деньг", котор они после этого говорит "что деньг" вы
после этого говорите им "деньг ваши родители дала вас для уроков
петь

There will be new AM'er's slang on the air soon...  :cool:

And it is cool! I'd prefer to pass Russian exam instead of Morse one. :lol:

Hate to sound like Christmas morning (batteries not included) - but it looks like the Nixie tubes are not included.

Have always thought Nixie tubes were cool!

Check out this Nixie watch at http://www.amug.org/~jthomas/watch.html .

My first device using Nixies,was made for the New Year.
I made a multivibrator on couple of N-P-N transistors, their collectors connected to grids of a double triode, and 4 nixies connected to anodes through resistors. Triodes and nixies were powered from a bridge rectifier without filter capacitors, so they were powered from bell-looking form of voltage of 100 Hz frequency (there is 50 Hz frequency in Russian power lines).

Multivibrator generated also close to 100 Hz signal, so my digits "1972" were softly waving from dark to light, from light to dark, with frequency equal to difference between frequency of a power line and a frequency of my multivibrator. It was cool! Cheesy

It happened by chance. I was a kid and just made a mistake in calculations, and took capacitors 100 times less for multivibrator than intended. And wow! It was much better than just rough flashing every second! Cheesy
