    PS 4 and Xbox one

    Here is the time to finally decide. What should you opt to buy, a PlayStation 4 or an Xbox One. Understanding the system of both by differentiating it with some facts is an easier way to decide than just blindly following rumors and propaganda. So here we give a definite overview on how these two new consoles stand up next to each other. In the first glance, Microsoft’s Xbox One and Sony’s PlayStation 4 have a lot of common features. As both of them have a 500GB hard drive. Both have an AMD Eight-core processor.  Both have the capacity to play Blu-rays or DVDs , both have Eight GB of RAM, but the PS4’s RAM has a different and more powerful variety that gives it better graphics than Xbox One. All the gaming consoles are similar but not created equal. The Xbox One and PlayStation 4 look a lot similar but also have some key differences that give them peculiar characteristics. Controllers and their efficiency The Xbox One’s controllers are amazing to hold, and the triggers are too cool. They definitely make a big difference. But at the same time, Sony’s built-in captivating touchpad, and PlayStation Vita as a PS4 controller, is also not very easy to beat. The debate related to the better quality and performance of the Xbox One controller versus the PS4 controller is the one that can’t be won easily as, mostly gamers’ already have their own locked in choices and preferences which are hard to change. Sony is still stuck with the typical dual analog sticks, but at least has given a central divot recess for easy gripping. Microsoft also slightly modified its controller for Xbox One. It’s 40 design innovations and is quite subtle, having the tweaked D-Pad towards the bottom-left side of the...

  • “Last Man Standing,” the ABC-TV comedy starring Tim Allen, has been renewed for a third season, according to the program’s producer, John Amodeo, NN6JA. In the program, Allen’s character is a licensed amateur and has stations set up in his office and his basement, both of which are regularly seen (especially the office station). The use of amateur radio was featured on a recent episode, and Amodeo says he anticipates that it will be included in at least one episode next season as well. He also revealed that the character of Mandy Baxter, who was operating her father’s radio but did not identify with a callsign, will be properly (if fictionally) licensed next season, as KF0XIE. Amodeo brought some of “Mandy’s” QSL cards to the Dayton Hamvention® in May. An article by Amodeo on the making of this past season’s episode featuring ham radio will appear in the July issue of CQ magazine.

  • Found this on a QRZ forum and I have tested this and but to bed the rumors you need a sound card for PSK31. Rule 1) THROW OUT YOUR HESITATION, and most importantly stick that money back in your wallet! you don’t need a cent to try PSK31. Really, it is NOT that difficult(I’m talking to you, Pat ‘MHZ here!! ) You don’t need no high falutin, new fangled fancy pancy interface. Why would you want to spend $100 on one of these ritzy interfaces to TRY OUT PSK31?!?!  Ok, I’ve just ranted and railed against Rigblaster/Signalink and other dedicated hardware interfaces, what is the secret formula to getting started on PSK31 for free?  Here are your necessary parts: 1) Radio, preferably with VOX setup. If it doesn’t have VOX, no problem! 2) Hand microphone for radio. Any other kind will also do. 3) Speaker/Microphone on your computer. Either built in or jack will work for both.  4) Software – If you’re running windows, Digipan is the most popular option. For Linux, MacOS or others (including Windows), FLDigi is an excellent option. Best of all, both are free. Optional 5) Headphones. Not required, but will make transmitting easier.  Optional 6) audio patch cable, like the one found here Steps 1) Find out the central PSK31 Frequency for the band you want to work. Tune your VFO to the listed frequencies, and bump the SSB mode into USB 2) If you have an audio patch cable with the necessary adapters if any for your radio, plug it into the audio out (headphone jack) of your radio into the microphone jack on you computer’s soundcard. If you don’t have a patch cable but rather a built in microphone on your laptop/webcam/etc, move that to as close to the radio’s speaker as possible.  3)With your radio’s handmic, place it to as close to your computer’s speakers as possible. If you have headphones, plug...
  • Tornado researcher Tim Samaras, who was killed May 31 by a tornado outside El Reno, Oklahoma, was an Extra Class amateur holding the call sign WJ0G. According to news reports, the twister he was tracking along with his son, Paul, and partner, Carl Young, suddenly changed course and headed directly for them. All three were killed. According to reports on The Weather Channel, Tim was a self-trained engineer who designed and built virtually all of his weather monitoring equipment. He is credited with developing unique tools to measure barometric pressure at the base of a tornado. It was unclear as this was written whether either Paul Samaras or Carl Young were licensed amateurs. The same tornado surprised Weather Channel meteorologist Mike Bettes and his crew – at least one of whom is a ham. The car in which Bettes was traveling was picked up by the storm and sent tumbling hundreds of feet off the road. Only one crew member was injured seriously enough to require hospitalization. Satellite truck engineer Cleve Massey, WD5BOR, reports he was not injured and that his vehicle remained on the road, although it did sustain damage. As he put it, “driving a 12,000-pound, low-to-the-ground satellite truck has its advantages.” At this writing, we do not know whether any of the other Weather Channel crew members also hold ham tickets. http://cqnewsroom.blogspot.com.br/2013/06/at-least-one-ham-killed-in-oklahoma.html
