Judging from your posted location thats kindof a remote area. twelve klicks off of the Al-can.

Yeah, not too bad, some neighbours around but the meetropolis of Ft. St. John is only 20 min. away..

Question is - do you see a connection there between location and posts?

No high speed.

That's not so bad. You get to see nicer things out your windows while you are waiting than the city folk do. Time for reflection.

I remember my first caribou antler antenna. Way better than those darn rabbit ears.

sorry - the bug caught me and I semi highspeed through satellite up/downlink - even out here.

But the deer I see right out of the window at least couldn't raid the garden this year - increased fence to about 6'.

We used mule deer antenna...caribou too scarce, about another 100 miles north. Rabbit ears too fluffy....not enough gain..

Oh, nostalgia. I've remembered I read that (shown me by a friend) when it first came out.
Anyone else remember Flanders and Swann's "song of reproduction"?

Well many ppl have different opinions on what an AUDIOPHILE is.....

My opinion is: Someone who knows the true beauty of an analogue signal (Either audio/video) -- Nothing will give you AS GOOD quality as ANALOGUE.. (Analog is NATURAL while digital is man made and doesnt produce as good results!)

Digital is fine for some things! (Digital Watchs,etc) but for video and audio,ANALOG IS AND ALWAYS WAS THE BEST! (Techinally)

If you watch analogue black and white TV then the picture is sampled (in the vertical direction, by the lines). Analogue colour TV has horizontal sampling too (phosphor layout). FM broadcast has probably been delivered to the transmitter via a digital system.

Done properly, digital is good. It just has different weaknesses from analogue.

I guess that means I am not a true audiophile. That's good; I can continue to make fun of them!
