Wanna have some fun? Google "inpection"

Spell it exactly as I have it.

home "inpection"
"inpection" equipment
"inpection" software
"inpection" procedures

And so on.

Aww, you are too kind.

I built the HW101 about 1980, had it finished in 50 happy hours. Didn't have a license yet but having it sit there waiting, listening to all the traffic going on, was plenty of motivation.

It still works. Has to warm up for 3 hours to minimize the drifting, but it still works. I'm not planning on parting with it.

And that big D-104 lollipop taught me to hate desk mics. It's the only, and last, desk mic I have ever owned. Lovely sound, but I just am not comfortable speaking into it, either bringing my face to it or it to my face.

Just me, I guess. I really prefer my Heil headset mic.

And here is the set up in the camper.
