Are Your Equiped For Bird Hunting?

The first commercially available "Zero-emission" vehicle is finally here: The Nissan Leaf. Everyone thinks that it is the first true Zero emission vehicle, but it is not.

A very good navigation system is taken into account by some folks as an important piece of boating gear. You may find a GPS system for less money, and it might be one life saver you found yourself when lost in water. At least, you require a good compass such that you don't lose the motorola 2 way radio.

The hunter, dressed in his usual garb and hat, places his favorite slate call, box call, wing bone or scratch box into his jacket on the way out of the house. He picks up his double-barreled shotgun and a few shells in his pocket before walking out the door.

Vought pilots had never seen nor worn crash helmets. Wearing them would give protection if at high speeds the plane hit an air pocket. When I put in a request for a hard hat, Purchasing could not find a supplier. The military had not accepted hard hats yet. When they did, such hard helmets were plentiful. But that was not until late 1946, several months after my request. For me, having played football at an eastern college, I was able to get surplus football helmets from my school's athletic department. The electrical shop at Chance Vought wired them for 2 way radio. That was as close as we got to hard hats. Although gaudy, they worked. I've kept (actually my mother kept) my primitive helmet, and it generates many questions at book signings.

A good rule is to look in your cars owners' manual and see what the factory recommends. I have noticed that most are in the 7500 two way radio for oil changes and that seems like a logical and practical way of dealing with it. Will it hurt your car to go more than 7500 miles (or whatever the factory manual states) between oil changes? Not really. You don't need to worry if you go a little past that until you have time to get it done.

Remember you're sharing channels with others and many people can listen in. Teach your child how to avoid giving exact locations over the radio; agree to identify locations in ways other than using popular names or a specific address.



Even Johnny Carson made a joke at the time, "the shuttle launch was being postponed until Sally Ride could find the purse to match her shoes." It appeared that a lot of people waiting for her to fail. Yet, Sally lived through it with dignity and encourages young women to follow in her footsteps to make a way for women to shine on this earth and beyond.
