That should have been obvious. He's a Ham. The love to either Yak or pound their fist. (My OM loved 80M CW)

I actually looked into HAM. I sorta gave up. I read the technician book several times. Electronics and me are not too friendly.

I'm the flip side. Lousy ear in the presence of QRM and a worse fist. (I did abysmal on the Navy placement test. They made me an ETR instead of). But I could easily pass the General technical.

As quite a few people here on the forum have learned, I will talk your ear off in my attempts to educate you...

 

I am not done yet. Maybe Mr. K6ccc can get me through that as well

As near as I can remember it has something to do with the measurement of spheres or circles.  But it's been a long, LONG time since I was in school, so don't recall all the particulars of how it's used to measure one{sphere or circle}

Well, I did another stupid oops.  This past weekend, I tore my show down.  To understand my oops, you have to understand my network topology.  The drawing below is a little dated, but close enough for this description.  You also have to understand that all the controllers on the Regular and AuxA network shown below are used year round for my landscape lighting.  For Christmas, I add one more CTB16 for my singing faces to my AuxA network (the green line in the drawing).  To add it in, I unplugged the output connector from the CTB16 in the East Attic, and plugged in a cable that went to the CTB16 for the faces, and a second cable plugged into the output connector on the faces CTB16 and connected to the cable going to the DC Column with a double female adapter.  That worked just fine all season.  On Sunday I removed the singing faces and their controller, and used another double female adapter in order to make the circuit complete.  Today, I pushed all the extra cables back through the conduit stub into the east Attic.  In order to get the cables through the conduit, I had to remove the double female adapter.  I remembered that I would then have to go back up into the attic to make the AuxA network normal.  I even commented to my son that was helping that I needed to do that.

Well, you guessed it, after putting everything away, I forgot all about the network.  Evening landscape lighting comes on.  About an hour later I remembered.  That meant that for that hour, only the front porch light (fed from controller 11 in the East Attic), a security light (fed from controller 15 in the garage), and the lights on the rose bushes (fed via E1.31) were on.  The whole rest of the yard was dark.
