Just got this wonderful SW DX machine:



This is a lot of a wideband receiver in a compact package:
FM (stereo), LW, MW, SW, SSB, AIR, AM-SYNC (that works!), scanner, narrow and wide band, dual conversion, 2000 memories...

Love it!

Here is a little keyword you may want to search, both on Google and on this forum: Riglol.

That was a day 0 thing. ;) Pretty much everything else was unlocked & official when I first powered it on so the only thing I wanted was the 100Mhz option, not that I *need* 100, but I sure as heck wasn't going to say 'no' especially considering Dave's teardown shown the front end could do 100. I use duckduck though. :)

The features remind me of my old Sony ICF-2010. Haven't used it for many years, not even sure where it is... Somewhere safe in the house I'm sure :)

cheers,
george.

I bought (another) telescope. I blame Scott Manley.

Two 70mai Dash Cam Pro + GPS module to replace my aging crappy dash cam, they're for front & rear.

Has this weird 2592x1944 resolution video in H265.  ::)

Nice! I've got an R1150RS and I also ride an R1200RS and an S1000XR. Looks like a fun project.

I have had this tester for a few weeks:

https://www.amazon.com/Testers-KJ-KayJI-Multimeter-Capacity-Temperature/dp/B07X3HST7V/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=usb+c+tester%2Ckj&qid=1594286016&sr=8-2

Then when re-writing the manual to be able to get more out of it, I realised it is pretty much a power monitor for anything.  Not only that, but it can be used to make up any kind of USB adaptor lead.  So to make it as flexible as possible for monitoring and plug/socket conversions, I bought these yeaterday:

https://www.amazon.com/Onite-5-5x2-1mm-Connectors-Notebook-Adapter/dp/B01C5F4GW0/ref=sr_1_1?crid=14U61164AUS8P&dchild=1&keywords=onite+28pcs+different+size&qid=1594286452&sprefix=onite+28%2Caps%2C283&sr=8-1

and

https://www.amazon.com/Connector-Adapter-Converter-Support-Charging/dp/B07DVR5XPJ/ref=sr_1_1?crid=B3T8KPP16NMA&dchild=1&keywords=sunmns+otg+usb&qid=1594286509&sprefix=sunmns+otg%2Caps%2C276&sr=8-1

Should be able to charge and monitor most things now with this little set up, especially rechargeables.

Could be the same factory: https://www.amazon.ca/iGaging-ABSOLUTE-Digital-Electronic-Caliper/dp/B00K3PZXMW
I have two and they are great. Its not mitutoyo but its almost as good for 1/3rd? the price.

Set of USB converter/adapters - 10pc for about $5.  Took 10 weeks to arrive Being aware that some cables, and possibly some adpators, don't connect all the wires through the first thing I did was try to connect a mouse through various combinations of adapters - not a complete test, but I would assume that if all four standard wires were not connected I would get some sort of error (certainly did get an error on a known "charging only" lead in my bag).  All adapters worked.  So link for those foolish enough to chance $5 on a delivery taking 10 weeks: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32874895044.html?spm=a2g0s.12269583.0.0.6cbf52dfuZUPyH

Poor Man's high voltage impulse generator.  For EMI/EMC testing - if your board is susceptible, I promise this will knock it over.  Normally your testing would involve spiking to the metalwork - but if you were designing for reliability you might have specific I/O connections you wanted to Direct-Inject test into.  The lug on the side of the push switch goes to the metalwork (ie It is the return).  The unit comes with a probe.  But it really can kill just about anything electronic, so you need to be pretty sure you know what you are doing before using it.  About $5, and takes about 10 weeks to arrive (or choose a faster shpping option).

I am sorry but you are mixing apples and pears. That piezo element is surge generator -  industrial testing according to EN 61000-4-5. "Direct-Inject" (not correct term, is used for RF coupling to wires via injecting clamps, according to IEC 61000-4-6) test is ALWAYS with some coupling element ( EN61000-4-5 , chapter 6.3), with series resistance and parallel capacitance.  It is absolutely necessary to keep in correct terminology in EMC. You are NOT testing your device for surges by spiking to metalwork. For that is ESD gun, completely different test and different methodology. 

You might mean that piezo element is burst generator, but definitely is not.  Please, use correct terms or you will mislead others.

I didn’t buy it today but I would like to post a picture of my 2013 BMW S1000RR. Not bad for a 75 year old eh?

Well I am surprised to be alive at 75, let alone still riding. I think you will make it, in spite of what is going on today. When it is my turn, it won’t matter if it’s a little germ or a Mac truck. Stay safe. 🏍

I wonder how these compare to Shahe calipers:

https://shahe.aliexpress.com/store/group/Digital-Vernier-Caliper/927893_253952831.html

I don't suppose anyone has experience with both makes and can comment?

That's a very good price ! Congrats.
Hope you need it, I have one... I don't use (yet). TEA syndrom probably.
