@adam finished listening to Sunday's show. Thoughts on the segment about pollen in North Carolina
The "pollen cloud" is a normal occurrence in the Western Part of the state. I have seen it since I can remember, esp just when it is above 75F° and breezy. Our cars turn another color, (red>orange, Blue>funky teal) we sneeze a bit more, but we are used to the yellow clouds. Lasts around 3-5 weeks, weather pending.
Forgive me @adam Podfather, I am several episodes behind. Regarding your new setup where you have no MIC input to your laptop, there is not a chance that it is a TRRS connection like a phone/tablet is there. Maybe the MIC IN is in the same physical jack. Also, your audio GLITCH matches @Johncdvorak squeaky chair and such. ITM and 73!
It's sad that a high-school paper level article looks like Pulitzer Prize material these days... Good dig on #AOC and her money funneling operation.

On the dummy load front, the the little plug-in power meter using a nano board is complete and looks like it may actually be working! Next I'll probably tack it onto the dummy load to try it out...
The hard part though will be the enclosure. Couldn't find one I liked, so I'm planning to make one out of pcb.
Got the capsules mounted in the body, wired the XLR to the main board, applied phantom power and nothing 'sploded. Biased the FET, wired in the capsule, and it sounds like a million bucks. Everything was perfect. The 2nd one is almost done as well. #D87Build
You like electronics, but you only use ready modules and breadboards because you hate soldering and your soldering always looks bad?
That is most likely because you don't use flux! No, it's not optional. No, the flux inside your soldering wire is not enough. Get yourself a flux pen or some colophony or rosin paste, and use it, and you will *love* soldering!
(Just make sure to work in a well-ventilated workspace, flux vapors tend to be bad for you.)
Hi all. I've been licensed since 1981, but became inactive due to work and other obligations. I've started to getting the bug again, mostly on the digital modes and I watch a lot of YouTube channels on the hobby😁. My main rig right now is a Yaesu 857, but I think an Icom 7300 may be added in the very near future. I'm a software engineer by day. At home I mostly use MacOS and kubuntu Linux. I'm just having a blast learning and playing with all the new stuff.
