DISCLAIMER: Entries at this blog are akin to good old-fashioned campfire chats; I offer no opinion on what you should or should not purchase or what you should be using or doing. What does or does not work for me could be many country miles away from your tastes and needs. Any products, places, and / or doodads that I review for this blog are purchased at retail price by me.

COOKIES IN USE: NOTICE TO VISITORS FROM ABROAD: We appreciate our many vistors from outside the USA. I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.


NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Zack

RadioShack, we will miss you.



 RadioShack was the only local retailer that could give us the means to listen in on police, fire, rescue, aviation, and other government service agencies.  Local newspapers are a thing of the past; if you want to know what is going on in your locale, you need the ability to tune in.

It is still fun to listen to shortwave.  Thanks RadioShack!

 RadioShack was a place to find information that was not readily available elsewhere.


This relic scanner still works; it was a high-tech wonder during its time.  Not many of the crystals inside the box are for agencies in my area.

It is a bit sad to witness the failure of RadioShack, but markets and technology move on.
