I'm now "Florida TV DX" on YouTube
After 12 years as "egrabow440", I've changed my YouTube channel name to "Florida TV DX". The channel was originally pretty unfocused, an extension of this website where I hosted my video projects from school, Caffeine's book trailer, and other miscellaneous items. With a TV DXing hobby to fuel new content, though, it was only a matter of time before the non-DXing material got crowded out. The new name reflects what the channel has become and what videos my subscribers tend...
Video Stuff #8: TV DXing Goes Mobile!
For the 20th anniversary of egrabow.com, I've reprised my old circa-2004 "Video Stuff" series! In episode 8 I show off my new mobile DXing setup, to kickoff the 2021 tropo season here in Florida. It's the first Video Stuff in almost fifteen years and the only one to premiere on Youtube. Watch "Video Stuff #8: TV DXing Goes Mobile!" (Youtube) No, the series isn't coming back. :/
Cutting FM DX Loose
WLNK 107.9 was one of my best FM catches (Fort Myers to Charlotte) during the crazy e-skip of June 20, 2015. In 2013 I added FM DXing to my TV and AM diet. A good tropo season (2014) and e-skip season (2015) helped the FM band trouce decades-old TV records practically overnight. Those years were fun, certainly. In those years, though, I had a lot of time and attention to give to the hobby. After 2016's so-so performace, and my attention bleeding away from 2017 onward, the loggings hav...
This month marks 20 years since I launched the Audio/Video Component Archive , a database of HiFi Stereo Components I started when I was in high school, collecting old catalogs and looking to make my mark on this new thing called "the internet." The AVCA was the first feature of my website, months before I even had egrabow.com. (This 20 year celebration is my warm up for a bigger one in January.) The AVCA went on to become the most heavily trafficked section of the website, the fi...
Update on This Falling Eden
Last week I completed the all-important "official first draft" for This Falling Eden. The first book of the trilogy clocks in at 84,000 words right now. That number should go down a bit in later drafts. Just like Caffeine, this first editing phase was brutal... about 95% rewrite. My move to Orlando also happened right in the middle of it, so there was that delay. This Falling Eden is now available to test readers. A new synopsis will be needed for it, since the one I have is for t...
