Thanks for listening!
For the 21st year in a row, I am heading down to Dayton Ohio for the Hamvention. Hamvention is a yearly ham radio trade show, conference, flea market and party. I am going this year with my friend John, KF8KK and my dad. Dave, W8TVC.
If you are going to be at hamvention and want to drop by for a chat, we will be based at the IOOK Both in the flea market area (#3349 and 2 next to it). IF I’m not at the booth, the guys there will know where I’m at.
Have a FUN weekend!

Boeing 787 flight testing resumes. On Jan. 17, 2012 the FAA grounded the 50 787′s that were in service with 8 airlines worldwide. On march 25th, they test flew a 787 production aircraft (owned by LOT – Polish airlines) with battery modifications.

John Deere 110 – 50 years old this year! I have 2 of these tractors that I will restore someday.
Korg Headtune Guitar tuners – Korg sent me a HT-G2 model to test out. Problem is, I don’t play guitar. I did, however, test it on my banjo and since banjo uses only B,G and D, and it’s included on the HT-G2, it worked great. But it does look funny on a Banjo looking like a guitar.
Google Keep – It’s going to replace (mostly) evernote for me. It’s simple, easy to deal with and works on my phone and tablet.
Thank you for staying subscribed!
Wow, Time flew by!!
After day 2 of the CES show in Vegas, I didn’t have time to update my blog. It was Sleep, Work and Eat… The work bringing you the CES 2013 coverage over at TPN.tv was nearly non-stop. When we had time to eat or sleep, we took it! We saw a TON of cool gagets and technology at the booth this year. I even got to spend a day on the floor with Jeffery Powers of Geekazine.com. Be sure to check out the posts over at: Geek News Central, Geekazine, Noodle.mx and SDR News over the next 30 days or so.
Since I took the week off from my driving job, they made sure I kept busy last week. I am recovered from the Vegas trip and now things are back to normal with the driving job.
I will have a roundup of what I saw in Vegas in the next episode (coming soon!).

First off, let me add to the 1000′s of people to wish you Happy New Year!
In 2012, I have been working hard on my business pursuits and it has felt like I’ve been going in 10 different directions at once and not getting anywhere in any one of them. At the beginning of a new year is the best time to take a look at what is working and what is not working, So that is what I’m going to do. It’s great that I’ve stayed “busy” but, it leaves little time to do a great job at some of the things I want to do.
As you know, I haven’t been focusing on my podcasting last year. I’ve had a lot of other things that are taking up my time and my thought cycles. Now, I’m not making any promises, warranties or “new years resolutions” here, but…. I do want to get focused on my podcasts. I do 3 of them these days (when I do them at all) and I am planning on somehow geting it to be a habit to record Geek of the North (Audio) once a week. I think I can commit to that. I do like doing video, but until I get some other fires put out in my personal and professional life, I’m thinking that the video will be low priority at least for the near future.
The Podcasting Tech Coach Podcast (podcastingtechcoach.com)is another one I do. As you can tell from the name, it’s all about getting a podcast website setup with all the best tools and tricks of the trade. I think what I’m going to do with that one is write a bunch of outlines for episodes and then when the mood strikes this winter, record a bunch of them all at once. Then over time, edit and put them out likely in a weekly schedule. The nice thing about that subject is the content is mostly evergreen and doesn’t really go out of date much. If I get 10 or 20 of them “in the can” I can record a new one when the mood or content is right and have some backup shows to fill in the gaps.
The third “show” I do is Mike Dell’s Audio blog. (mikedell.com) This is where I can experiment with podcasting and just talk about whatever it is that strikes me. It also gives me a chance to podcast from the car. One of the businesses I’m working on is as a independent owner-operator for a courier company. I like to drive and for the hours I put into it, the paychecks are very good. In my “audio blog” I talk a lot about that. Driving a lot also gives me a lot of time to think, listen to audio books and podcasts. Seems like a win-win to me (for now).
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I want to focus on the things I’ve committed to and learn to say no more to time-wasters that have captured my time this last year. I look forward to bringing you more content, not just more, but better content in 2013.
