What Grabow's Rambling About Now

The Return of Power Everything POSTED AUG 4, 2017
Ten years ago I traded an old fully featured car for a much newer but barely featured car. Now that it's 2017 can I have both low miles and high features? Looks like the answer is yes. This week I traded in the Chevy Cavalier for a Honda Accord. After ten years of crank windows and no cruise control it now feels like I'm back in the Supra, LOL. I'll be doing my commuting, road trips, bandscans, and donuts in the parking lot in relative luxury now. The Yaphank Ceremony will be completed on...

Shorter YouTube Videos POSTED JUL 29, 2017
Now that I've successfully restarted the writing process for This Falling Eden and settled into a routine that allows me to work on it several times a week, I decided I can resume working on YouTube videos in August. The first in line are my DX clips from this past tropo season, moving onto the (in progress) e-skip season, and finally back to bandscans. However there will not be as much time per week as before, so there will be some workflow changes reflected on my channel. I started posting...

Second Wind for the Second Novel POSTED JUN 28, 2017
After more than three years on the backburner, the outlines, notes, and typescript for my second novel are seeing the light of day again. I've used some vacation days to revise the outline, which I'm very happy with, and I reenter the writing phase this week. The working title had been The Day The Rain Came Back, but now I have changed it to This Falling Eden. The new title seems more literary, and (like Caffeine) is a clever reflection of the novel's contents. (This is the project's third title...

Yaphank Ceremony 2017 POSTED MAY 7, 2017
With this year's drive to Tampa in the bag my '03 Cavalier has seen its last planned road trip. The nice off-lease car from ten years ago has been beaten on by the Florida sun and begun to develop mechanical problems. My first two cars could get away with that, but I'd like to trade this one in while I still remember it being nice. ;) Cue my traditional "Yaphank Ceremony," named for the first place I ever drove just because I'd never been there before, a celebration of the fr...

Finally, Some "Real" DX POSTED APR 30, 2017
Well it's not much, but it's the first "real" DX I've had in this condo. I was seriously starting to worry. :\ Loggings For Apr 29, 2017 Date/TimeChCallsCitykmkWVideoNotesApr 29, 2017 01:40 Tr101.7WAVFHanahan, SC723100.0 "Chuck FM"Apr 29, 2017 01:40 Tr104.5WRFQMount Pleasant, SC723100.0 rock, "Q 104.5"Apr 29, 2017 02:00 Tr88.5WMFLFlorida City, FL2107.7 religious, "Family Radio" Here's how a friend of mine did.

Audio/Video Component Archive POSTED MAR 8, 2017
I never walk away from it for long, do I? :D For those new to, my Audio/Video Component Archive (AVCA) used to be a big part of the site. The AVCA was my first online "resource" at a time when I was still deciding what direction to take in. Basically it's a catalog of old electronics, VCRs or CD players from whatever brands and years, meant to highlight how they evolved over time. ("Catalog" doesn't mean I was selling anything, but I was certainl...
