I get really jazzed over gadgets. I like to stay on the cutting edge of technology which puts me ahead of the curve on some things and sometimes I end up following the wrong technology in a rush to be the first on the block with a new toy. In this section I will try to give an honest and informative opinion on general electronic devices.
AN OSCILLOSCOPE & SWEEP FUNCTION GENERATOR
ARE THE CORNERSTONE OF ELECTRONICS TOOLS
A MULTIMETER & LOGIC PROBE ARE INDISPENSIBLE
A SELECTION OF SOLDERING IRONS IS CRITICAL
Keeping power going to all the electronic gadgets I like to carry used to be problematic but recent improvements in battery technology has made the job much easier.
FMRS AND GMRS RADIOS
These little radios are super handy for almost any task. They really shine at ski slopes or for mountaineering when you have more than one roped team. The FMRS radios generally have a 2 to 3 mile range and can be frustrating at ski areas with their limited range and the high number of bozos trying to use the same channel. I recently upgraded to GMRS radios. They have double the range of FMRS and less people own them so you are much less likely to have to share a chanel. My GMRS radios also have the FMRS channels so that you are compatible with most other radios on the market. You must pay a 75 dollar licensing fee to the F.C.C. on top of the purchase price to legally operate GMRS radios.
