Short Wave Listening = SWLing.com

SWLing.com

Short Wave Listening is much easier now with the moderon receivers. When I started some some 55 or 60 years ago the dial was a guess at best. Now with digital readout you just dial the frequency and if you have propagation you hear the station. ...... Jack

If your out for a drive

 Just West of Versailles on the late Paul Morris farm are two great formations. Pictured below is the Morris (lost bridge) Bridge. While viewing the beautiful masonry work of the bridge please view the work of Paul Hinge, a stone solar calendar.  Click photo for full view.

WB9OTX site hacked


Some JERK hacked my web page and deleted a few files. I had to look for a long time but I finally found the back-up of the index page. This was done for no purpose as there was no information stored there that would do anyone any good. Always keep a back up of important things as sooner or later you will need it. This hack only cost me about one hour to build it back. ............ Jack

Myth & ol' wives tale


After seeing a commercial on TV I told two friends that waiting one half hour before swimming was a myth. The comment from them was "are you nuts" I replayed that is a good example of an ol' wives tale. So I looked it up and found the below quote. at: HERE

An examination of the Royal Lifesaving Association’s Australian reports on drowning  over the past few years gives no mention of lives being lost after eating. And neither the American Academy of Pediatrics, the United States’ Consumer Product Safety Commission, nor the American Red Cross offer any guidelines or warning related to swimming after eating.

And I said, "See I told you so"

Trail Cam


This doe has been eating my bird feed for several weeks now. I put shell corn out but she likes the bird feed better.
