Where's the TimTron poster on the wall???

Looks nice, Buddly.  Nothing worse than a damp dark shack.

Hi Bud;

Congrats on the new station! very nice (I'm still in the basement)

I love the section on your website "don't like AM?" That is so well put! those are my feelings to the letter. Should be the AM'er's motto!

cudos!

Is it my eyes, or are the pictures out of focus?? Everything seems fuzzy.

Buddly,
         Your shack looks real sanitary and comfortable - Love it!
         Also, I LOVE the RCH. It's a great receiver that can really enrich the sound of a good hi-fi AM station. It would definitely be my main rx during quiet periods and 160M work. Nice to listen to oldbuzzardly transmissions.

The best of luck in the revamped "BIL Studios"

In today's digital world, that's 10 steps back in technology. Weren't we playing with 90 MHz PC's back then??

NIIIIIIIIIIIIICE!

I think you've picked up 10 dB on your signal since moving to the new studios.

Nope. I was using a 90 MHz 68040 based Mac (which was at the back-end of the power curve for the time - top end were the machines with 120 MHz 604 PowerPC processors). In PCs, the Intel 80486 DX5 and AMD 5X86 running at 133 MHz were about the top of the line. I did have a Toshiba laptop with a 66 MHz 486 in it, running Windows 3.11. I still have it!


Also in 1995:

Mosaic released Netscape 1 and later Netscape (formerly Mosaic) as a company went public.

Windows 95 was released.

OS/2 Warp was still a big deal at IBM

Windows NT 3.5 was the NT system of the day. Anyone every use this? I have, for several years in the mid-90s. Ugh!

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) was created.

Irb called CQ Tiddly-Winks. No one answered.

Of course the latter one was by far the most significant.

TNX all !
Steve (7OF) ... its not quite "the attic". When we built the addition I used attic trusses with the full intent on making the upstairs a family crash center.

Huzman ..... even received signals are more lively !!!

Now to convince the decorating commitee that the famous blue curtains are needed !!!

If not, they should be donated to the Greater Cleveland Museum of Radio, Beer and Bowling.
