Geek of the North – The End


GOTN2013_600sqSince I haven’t been producing this podcast for a LONG TIME, and I don’t think that will change, I’m podfading Geek Of The North as a podcast.

I will keep the feed going, I will keep going as a Blog.

Heading to Dayton Hamvention this weekend

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.

IOOK_Logo_roundIf 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!

Geek of the North 48 – Back in the saddle again



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!

Back from CES and Recovered (mostly)

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 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 Be sure to check out the posts over at: Geek News Central, Geekazine, 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!).
