Successful launch paper USAF Rocket D-Lab electronics Launch Control Reports Halloween special C-57D

Test launch of a capacitor powered paper rocket. The launch control facility (LCF) is controlled by an Allen Bradley PLC. 1st attempt failed. Unfortunately the rocket was not able to leave the launch pad. After some advice from fellow YT’ers, I was able to redesign the launch pad, removing the booster from the rocket and incorporating it onto the launch pad. This reduced payload and allowed for a flawless launch! Some of you did not see the value/fun of this experiment. Sorry, but it was fun and educational for me. Thank you to all that have an open mind. Would you like to see another test launch? Happy Halloween from D-Lab!

2020 MARC Vintage electronics expo Cool tube Radios collectors items Ham gear, A great event

See thevee.org. for more information on these events. This was the Winter session at Farmington Hills, MI in the Detroit area. What a super swap meet. So many classic pieces. Marcia and I had a great time. Shooting the video was a breeze. Everything fell into place. Normally I do not buy anything, however a retro guitar amp caught my eye. So, I figured why not. Glad I did as it turns out to be a very rare piece. So get ready for a refurbish series on the Premier 110. I plan to fully document the layout & schematic. And of course fully rebuild the amp. I love its style. My guess is a Harp player would fall in love with it. We plan to attend the summer event, so there is much more to follow. So, sit back, sip on your favorite beverage, enjoy the meet.

New Test equipment at D-Lab Electronics DeVry Tube Radio analyzer Console

Yes, a cool new addition to D-Lab’s testing capabilities. This unit is very rare. I was very happy to acquire it. DeVry Model 16004. It has all the features required for Tube radio troubleshooting and repair. Back in the day, it was utilized for training future radio technicians. My guess is it was never offered for sale to the general public. I plan to feature it in upcoming videos. If you have any info/schematics/manuals/ History, please let me know. I am very honored to have this fine piece in my collection. Hope you enjoy!
