   Not according to some people.  Their 'Pittsburgh' brand of hand tools
are stolen fairly often.



   Dothan?  EWWWWWWWW!!!  I had to drive there from Ft Rucker too many
times to pick up parts from a small wholesale electronics place.

   If I had taken that civil service job that I was offered in '73, I
would probably still be in the area.

We hadn't been in that part of the state yet.  Dothan isn't *that* bad. SWMBO
liked the antique stores (I needed some cheap brownie points ;). Eufaula is
rather nice driving through.  The mansions along the main drag are something.
I thought I might like a house on the lake (big lake), but then found out it's
full of 'gators.  Maybe not.


It's about 85mi South of here.

   Good. You don't want to hang around an Army base.  Even if there was
a nice highway to Dothan.  I remember ch 4? from Dothan while I was
building that TV station in Destin.  They still started their broadcast
day with a farm report, and their weather forcast used '50s props.  That
was in the early '90s.

You could've offered to upgrade them to Commodore 64s, Michael -- I remember
several small (very little funding) TV stations that used'em for graphics or
the electronic program guide. :-)

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.
