The true inaugural post...

Good day Internet! This is the inaugural post of my amateur radio blog.

I'm a ham radio operator and have been since 1987, when I got my Novice ticket in rural South Dakota (SD) at 14 years old. It's been a fun hobby, even though I took a break from roughly 1993-2013.

The name of the site comes from being creative with mnemonics for my US-based amateur radio call sign: KA0ZRW. See, typically it would be "Kilo Alpha Zero Zulu Romeo Whiskey". Zulu Romeo Whiskey is useful when on the air, since it's easy to understand each word and they don't sound like any other mnemonics for other letters. When I got my license when I was 14, I was looking for a way for people to remember my call easily, and after running through a few options I came up with "Zebras Running Wild". I like it because it creates an image in your mind. Kind of like when I say "don't think of rabbits", you automatically think of rabbits. :-)

I'm going to post my adventures in ham radio on this blog. If it happens to cross over into computing, information security, or other areas, I may cross post to other blogs I have. I like to keep like content on like blogs, but I'm just one person, so the thoughts are all mine, and so are the blogs!

Feel free to reach out or comment. I'm considering doing some YouTube content too, but haven't made it there yet. Trying to teach myself video editing in iMovie. If I get competent, maybe I'll end up there too.

KA0ZRW, "Zebras Running Wild"


  1. With our printed residential constructing in Beckum, we're demonstrating the potential of the development printing process,” mentioned Waldemar Korte, associate MENSE-KORTE ingenieure+architekten. What makes this site really cool is that you simply additionally get to download fashions of spacesuits and rockets which had been deployed by America’s National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Thingiverseprovides access to a huge variety of 3D fashions as well as|in addition to} a educated group. You can find many 3D fashions that you can download free of charge in STL format, and Heated Mittens new fashions are added daily. The only drawback, though, isn't all the fashions are available as STL information format, due to this fact not fully optimized for 3D printing .

  2. Xu, et al. , examined the heat generation and conduction of the ball screws and investigated how the completely different cooling strategies impacts the temperature distribution using infrared thermal imaging expertise. Zhang, et al. , studied temperature variable optimization for precision Cycling Helmets for Road machine device thermal error compensation using infrared thermometer. In addition, want to|we have to} conclude the prevailing monitoring technologies and offers new technical support for thermal error analysis on heavy-duty CNC machine tools. The processing setting skilled quality} CNC machine device is generally worse than the small and medium-sized CNC machine tools. Traditional electrical sensors could be easily influenced by the work setting.
