    I also matched my 80 meter NVIS turnstile (with its 4 feeders tied together) to the output of my power amp (with the grounded B+), in prep for the Stew Perry Top Band DX Challenge (already underway).

    Looked at a tree laying on the bank of the Mississippi. In my expert opinion i believe it's been chewed on.

    Wrote some code in Chipmunk Basic to generate modulated IQ signal samples from an FT8 code block.

    ever notice on tv how the "experts" do a quick shot with a level and declare, "yep its plumb" and move on. ?
    if the floor is level the side has to be plumb. if not level the side cant be plumb.
    they never explain that. the side has to be square with the bottom regardless if hung right.

    Oh gosh!!! When I saw this post, I had to look up the author - Ron Nicholson and his Chipmunk BASIC! I used that on my old Mac II Si in the mid 90s for several years. I used it for mostly prototyping some ideas that I used at my job: a training app including some personal use of importing FAA tests for practice taking them, some very early HTML and website manipulation, and integration with some Logo apps. Very fun.

    I had also had email communication with Ron as to some suggested edits with his manual.

    BTW, I upgraded the Mac II Si by overclocking from 20 MHz to 24 MHz with a 48 MHz crystal and, ready for this? 17 Mb of RAM. Oh yeh!

    If anyone is looking for a basic BASIC that just flat works, this is the one.

    I gotta get the Raspberry Pi version and play with it just to see if I remember anything.

    73 to Ron and your family. I hope to get a QSO with you sometime.
