Subtract and Add

The DMU display just shrank to 7".  I got the monitor as a test buy from Newegg. It shipped direct to my office from China for less than $40.  The product description said VGA, but actually, it takes a composite video input. Both 4:3 and 16:9 aspects are available.  I had to buy a converter at Radio Shack, which cost nearly double the monitor. Runs off of 12 VDC and is ostensibly for backup cameras and DVD players in vehicles.  Video quality is so-so, but it beats taking up a lot of real estate for a bandscope.

Marshall Emm N1FN at Morse Express notified us recently of GHD's latest bug, model GN206S.  It wasn't very long before one appeared in the shack!  She's a beauty.  Now if only the operator(s) can master it!
