09:01 Buzzword Participation.

For many of us, participation is simply talking on the radio during our commute to and from work. Why not take part in a club event? It's a great way to promote the hobby, and it's fun!

13:29 Song “Harpo-Ventillation” by Mark Hummel, from the album “Mark Hummel's Blues Harmonica Blowouts”
15:12 Topic SLI, Marine and Deep-cycle Batteries.

Start, Light and Ignition (SLI) batteries are designed to deliver a lot of energy in a short time, not to deliver steady power over a long time.

Marine batteries are a compromise between SLI and deep-cycle batteries, and share characteristics of both.

A deep-cycle battery is designed to be repeatedly discharged 80% of capacity and can deliver a steady current for a long period of time.

24:55   Testing deep-cycle batteries

  1. Inspect
  2. Recharge
  3. Remove surface charge
  4. Measure the state-of-charge
  5. Load test
  6. Recharge
33:34   Use deep-cycle batteries for the radio shack, in a well-ventillated area.
