Working from home

 Yeah I know, this topic has been beat to death on the internet but I just found an article over on my favorite radio site about a group called Welathy Affiliates and thought I would share it.

 The guy that runs the web page works from home allowing him to be a full time stay at home dad while earning an income. he has been loggging some of his progress as he works his way through the training material and starts earning an income. The nice part about this group is apparently it doesnt actually cost anything to join to start learning the methods used to make monay, allowing you to prove to yourself whether affiliate marketing is right for you or not.

 If you do decide to join once you have proven to yourself that the methods actually work and they aren't out to get your money, you can choose to join the premium group and learn even MORE ways to make an income online. This sounds like a good deal to me, since I dont have to put out any money at all until I know that the group works and I am going to make money with this.

 You can read the article HERE.

Cobra 2000GTL CB base radio

 After a few days of working on the Cobra 2000 GTL base station i think i finally have the radio back under control. Was able to remove the channel modification that put it up above the regular CB channels, and put the original crystal back in its original place back on the board.
 It was an easy fix, since all that had been done was and extra crystal holder had been put in place of the tone control. This holder had 3 crystals in it. One thing that was done very poorly was that they had left the tone control inside just hanging with a little black tape around it. After the tone control was put back into place i also made the clarifier control locked again, so it couldn't go in between channels. Once i tuned it down to regular power output of 5W i was getting very good reports and the audio was nice and strong without being overmodulated.

 Now all that is left to do is an alignment and to replace a few lights. The meters are also stuck in one position so will have to figure that out as well.

 Time to get to work and make some money.

Using the Hygain TH3jr and DX'ing

My friend over at cb-radio.siterubix just posted an article about DX'ing with a Hygain TH3jr beam antenna against the Solarcon A99. Although the Solarcon A99 antenna is a decent antenna for 10M and 11M use, it still doesn not compare to having a beam up in the air. The onyl thing i dont like about beams personally is when im chasing dx across a band. i like to have an omni-directional antenna at least until i stumble across a good dx station. Then i can always switch over to the beam. You can read his article HERE.

Anonymous and 10,000 sites. What you need to know

Just saw a link on another web site, that the Amazon servers, and most of the sites that are hosted by them, have been brought own by the anonymous group. Dont know if this is true or not just yet, but find it interesting nonetheless. Anonymous has threatened to do this in the past, so it was only a matter or time.
