  1. I lost interest in the hobby years ago. But a friend of mine just got back into it. Handhelds are really cheap now. You can get a dual band 2M 440 MHz for under $50 USD. Google Baofeng or check them out on eBay.
  2. I did an internal preamp for a friend more than 20 years ago. I got the schematic from Guitar Player magazine. It looks like you can get something similar today. Google Tonekicker and see if this might be something you are interested in.
  3. Thanks for pointing out the Wikipedia page. Pretty impressive Dawg!
  4. Here is the cheat sheet I used a long time ago to remember the essential subnetting stuff.

  5. each contact or person you called or received a call from with GV will have a unique telephone number from google assigned to it.. these numbers are shared amongst all of the GV subscribers.. so for example someone texts you google will forward the text from NPA-NXX-XXX1 calls to this number from ANY number that is associated as a forwarding number on your GV account will be sent to that person with your GV number as the caller ID.. sort of like a shortcut instead of having to call into your GV number and press 2 to place a call, or using click to call, or an app... if someone texted my GV number i could end up with the same NPA-NXX-XXX1 number, but when I called that number from one of the numbers associated with my GV number i would reach someone different than you would.. calling from a number that is not linked with a GV account would result in whatever error recording that GV chooses to put up on the line... but even the CBCAD calls would probably be supervised calls... Makes sense. Hope you are safe from the effects of Sandy.
  6. Another thing I don't understand is why I can call the number from my cell and it rings my friends phone. When I call it from a landline phone I get a "your call cannot be completed as dialed" message.
  7. I found a thread on this. http://productforums.google.com/forum/#!topic/voice/ae2ExaPUduc%5B1-25%5D
  8. I have been getting text messages from different people on my contacts list that are not coming from their usual number. It has always been a different area code. These contacts have sent text messages to my Google Voice number which gets forwarded to my Verizon Android phone. I can understand Google forwarding a text from another number, but the strange thing is I can call that number and it always rings the contacts phone. Does Google assign everyone that sends me a text extra phone number? That seems like a huge waste of numbers. How could they do that? It seems to be somewhat persistent. I can reach my sister in South Carolina by calling a in the Sacramento California area code. It worked more than 24 hours later. Has anyone else seen anything like this? Can anyone duplicate this?
  9. Try 123.45 MHz for some interesting air to air traffic. This frequency is not really authorized for this but it has been in use for this purpose since the 1970's or before. Us pilots are a simple bunch, tuning 12345 is easy for us!

  11. both wired... one directly to the router.. one connected to the second router that has DHCP off and is only acting as a switch... you say that the router should have picked it up... but originally i thought it was the router, and i just replaced the router about 2 weeks ago it was actually a freak accident that i found the problem, because my wife had her PC connected directly to the modem while i was playing around with some settings on the router, and ended up being able to ping the IP address of "her computer" i know usually when there are multiple devices with the same IP address on a network that there will be an IP address conflict - but i guess because they both had the same MAC address, the router thought that it was the same device? EDIT - i just emailed customer service @ netgear and advised them of this problem with their firmware, hopefully it gets passed to the proper place for them to see if they can develop a solution to this problem - they have IP address conflicts... why not MAC address conflicts? Any chance the MAC address of one of the routers got cloned to match the MAC address of your wife's computer sometime? I know this is possible in many home routers. MAC addresses should be unique for all device as set by the factory. If the MAC of one of your routers is different from what is printed on it then this is probably what happened. Check out this link and see if it is similar to your situation. http://support.netgear.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/1086/~/no-internet-with-new-router,-computer,-or-adapter%3A-mac-spoofing
  12. I like the idea of tethering your Droid. I've been doing that for a while with mine. I usually get better than 1Mb/s download speeds. That's better than the speeds at most Universities I have been too.
  13. Nyphonejacks is probably correct about the screwdriver. Listen to him and don't use it.
  14. I don't know about the Ethernet over power thing, but it seems pretty expensive to me. I doubt that it would be as reliable as a wired connection anyway. Wired is more secure and reliable than wireless. You can't beat it for speed either. If possible run the wire. The wall jacks make terminating easy. You can get them at Bestbuy, Staples or Radio Shack. If you want to order them here is a link to Newegg. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812996030&cm_re=rj_45_jack-_-12-996-030-_-Product Here is how you connect the jack. Its not as hard as it looks. You can get away with using a small screwdriver if you don't want to buy a punchdown tool. Good luck.
  15. I don't have anything specific to contribute but you might look at the Howardforums web site. There is lots of cellphone info there. http://www.howardforums.com/
