character generator to test the transmitter as I rebuilt it.

   Anyway, I think their TelePrompTer was the original hand cranked
model.  The one that used what looked like old piano rolls.  There was
nothing high tech about that station.  It may have still been all B&W
when I was stationed at Ft. Rucker in the early '70s.

   BTW, that was when I saw my first character generator for NTSC.  The
local cable company bought it.  It used diode arrays to generate the
characters.

Amigas were all over TV stations in the 80's.

There's also Ft. Bennington, in Columbus.  The new Infantry Museum is really
nice.  Some of the exhibits are still unfinished but it's a beautiful place.


All the highways around here are nice (no frost heaves).  US451 is 4-lane,
except for a couple of miles North of Eufaula.


It's not uncommon for Midwest stations to start their news with the farm
report.  Radio stations used to do them from 12:00 to 1:00, when the farmers
were in for lunch.

I remember after my grandmother first got TV in the old farmhouse in
North Fayston sitting with her at lunch eating fried egg sandwiches
watching that show.
