I'm Thinking About Getting A SDR To Play With

Monday, Feb 17, 2020
I see that there seems to be a decently rated software defined radio available. 30 books or so on Amazon so I am thinking about ordering one to play with. I wonder if it would respark my interest that I had as a kid when I made my first crystal radio. I kind of drifted away from that when I realized the visual aspect of building stuff. I mean I always liked trying to find the furthest.

Beginning The Hunt For A Portable Music Player

I’m finally someone seriously looking looking for a new portable music player. It’s so overwhelming to search for exactly what I want for a reasonable price. It has to support large SD cards. I see some of them support 2 SD cards and that would be ideal for me in case one took a shit while we were away at least I’d still have something. We have a lot of music and my mood and tastes in want I want to listen to vary all the time so I want to be able to have everything available.

Delorme PN-40 Is Nice But Not For Me

Saturday, Jan 10, 2009
Well I had an [Earthmate PN-40 “Delorme PN-40](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001FVLTNA?ie=UTF8&tag=deth&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B001FVLTNA">DeLorme “Earthmate PN-40 “Delorme PN-40”) which I liked a lot. It had good accuracy from what I could tell but I never really got the chance to use it. The first time I got very short battery life. I returned it and they repaired it. The second time I got it back and it just didn’t power on. Then I received it again and If I had to guess I put the batteries in backwards and it didn’t work.

I Want This GPS!

Saturday, Jan 27, 2007
I’ve been reading about the new Delorme PN-20 GPS. It looks pretty interesting. It comes with Delorme’s USA Topo 6.0. The GPS can show aerial photos too. Just seems real interesting to me. The couple of reviews I’ve read on it say it isn’t perfect but at least they’re adding something a bit different. I hope this becomes the norm by the time I need a new GPS.
