    I have a photocell outside the shack pointed due north, that I can monitor ambient light, and possibly correlate it to propagation (MUF, etc). Here is a 12 hour plot of daylight intensity from 6pm local time to 6am local. I'll eventually put together a movie of these so you can see how this changes with the days of the year. Pretty slick, I think. ambient light.jpg

    Clarification...not really a photocell, but a cadmium sulfide photoresistor with a three volt battery source. Using a WINDAQ data acquisition/datalogger module.

    I think the waitress should pay us to stay.

    But it was a big hit for The Animals.

    Alan Price, their keyboardist on the Vox, was absolutely excellent and helped a lot to make the song a hit. I had to practice a long time to be able to play it almost exactly as he did, but he made it seem effortless. Great keyboard man.
