The Electronic Coach

[Recorded: circa 1959] ”The Electronic Coach” is a short film made by IBM describing the use of computers in the management of a university basketball team. The film features computer science legend Don Knuth, then a junior at Case Institute of Technology. For all four of his undergraduate years at Case (1956-60), Knuth was manager of the basketball team and sought ways to improve his team’s play by analyzing a series of special statistics he captured during games. The scoring method was unusual in the weightings it gave to activities not necessarily associated with traditional coaching but Knuth’s insights into basketball, combined with his computerization of the reams of data he collected, helped Case’s coaching staff make their basketball team a winner. The computer used is an IBM 650.

Antennen på plats

Snap_2010.12.30 16.51.58_039

Nu har äntligen min antenn GPM-1500 kommit på plats och även en tuner modell bättre står där den ska så nu ska kortvågen utforskas rejält. Har även kopplat ett Signallink modem så att lite PSK och RTTY kan köras. Som vanligt har jag en hel del störningar på kortvågen men det är svårt att komma förbi i stan. Till våren ska prylarna tas med ut till torpet för prov, där finns bra möjligheter för stora antenner så det lockar. Måtte det bli sommar snart…:)

Wouxan mobilrigg till Sverige

Snap_2010.12.27 18.15.30_022

Kinesiska handapparater har vi sett många av det sista året och jag är själv ägare till en. Nu börjar även mobilstationerna att dyka upp och kommer att börja sälja en Wouxan som verkar intressant. Crossband, delbar front och bred RX mottagare gör denna duobandare intressant. Självklart kommer denna radio som jag närmast jämför med Yeasu FT 8900R att ha en bra prisbild antar jag, med tanke på hur prisbilden brukar vara för kinariggarna så kan nog denna bli mycket intressant.

Än så länge kan man bara förhandsboka den hos och det finns när detta skrivs heller inget pris på den. Mer data om burken hittar du på hemsida.

VO52 ham satellite – my first time

this is my first time i set my TS2000 on the SAT-mode to work a satellite. Unfortunatly my short vertical X30 antenna can’t get enough signals, smeter is died, so I guess my transmission is not enogh strong too to make a contact. Infact nobody seem to hear me when I call. Anyway I enjoyed my first experience even if I can only receive, I ‘ve never seen a satellite operation from my radio before. I need time to learn how to do better, and I have to change my antenna for sure.

Julkalas hos SA5RG


I lördags bjöd amatörradioklubben SA5RG in sina medlemmar till ett dignande julbord och det var väldigt uppskattat. Stämningen var hög och det åts och pratades och alla trivdes väldigt bra. Klubben hade även en liten tävling där den glada vinnaren fick gå hem med en USB hårddisk som säkerligen kommer att vara till nytta. Varje medlem fick också en trisslott så nu väntar vi bara på att någon ska ge sig till känna och tala om att miljonen är bärgad.

Styrelsen i SA5RG vill tacka alla medlemmar för ett otroligt trevligt och utvecklande år för klubben, det har hänt otroligt mycket och alla medlemmar har förstås en stor del i detta.

Tack alla och God Jul och Gott Nytt År.
