Red face Greetings everyone o/

Hello, i'm from Saskatchewan and I enjoy long walks on the beach ... wait, not that kind of introduction.

Hrm, ok so I used to install for Starchoice / ShawDirect in the later years, as well as Xplornet up until the launch of the xKu systems they had in place. When I quit, the xKu LNB's were JUST coming out for Shaw Direct.

I love tinkering with things, software and hardware, as a software developer and blacksmith. So it gets interesting and hectic around here some days. But it's all for Knowledge.

I found myself learning Blacksmithing because I wanted to learn a skill that I could use without electricity if I had to, and would benefit society in some fashion should we enter an EMP or Solar Radiation Burst that fries everything one day

Now if only you had the skills to construct a Water Wheel (and a Trough to feed it)....and a Transmission consisting of a series of belt-driven un-equal diameter Cogs to increase Rotation Speed so you can drive a 12-VDC Alternator connected to a DC-to-AC Alternator. THEN you could periodically scan thru the TV Channels to see if any other survivors figured out how to get back OTA...

Antenna Simulations, Overload Calculations, etc:
