    It was the 60s. Jet fuel (and gasoline) was cheaper then.

    They should have. It was built for the AF, and cost enough to do it the right way.

    To be fair, I don't know how a turbofan would handle the gravel landing strip. I suspect, very badly.

    Industrial accident at an aluminum forge, by the look of it. There wasn't an article attached to the pic where I found it, so I cant be 100% certain.

    I recall reading an article about the guys who built BMEWS and how they made sure that everything. Was. Perfect.

    /not that BMEWS was perfect -- the same article talked about the frequent capacitor explosions and the arcing in the waveguides when ice got on a feed and detuned it.

    A lot of sites had a hardened UHF discone -- essentially a solid cone on concrete with a disc around it (sort of backwards from how you think of a discone design, but still has the wide bandwidth).

    I think I've been there. I think they also had some an antenna or two where the mast was in a tube underground, protected by a hatch, so that they could raise it up into position when the bombing calmed down a little.

    Yeah, it resembled that one, but had fewer (less than one third plus they were bigger) mounting nuts and bolts around the base.

    Most people looking at it now don't realize it's an antenna.

    Well, given that it's a Minuteman site, it's job is probably long done before the first bomb hits, and the hardened antenna is more placebo than anything else.

    Yeah, that sounds like hardened antennas. That HF discone I showed was soft; its hardened backup extended and lowered depending on the frequency tuned to.

    Heh, I've always considered the design of UHF and higher frequency wave guides and antennas to be the deepest black magic to be performed only during the dark of the moon.

    When it became more available, I took an immediate preference to digital, and pretty much never strayed. My part time job in high school was at a TV repair shop. The owner was an old Navy radar guy. He left the new-fangled solid state stuff that came in to us. Too bad he didn't live long enough for the FETs to come in. Their theory was more like the tube theory he was at home with.

    I'm something of a dabbler in electronics -- truly knowing just enough to be dangerous.

    BTW, this is the external antenna for my GPS unit. GSM, 3G, and 4G cell phones use close to the same frequencies as GPS.

    It's at least twice as sensitive as the internal antenna on the GPS even with the signal loss incurred with the 6 feet of cable between the antenna and the unit.

    Don't know anything about FMS.

    DecForms was a procedural language in which the programming statements were nevertheless positional. It controlled output screens and operator input, and was separate from the logic of the application itself.

    DEC invented it to allow applications to be spread across networked VAXes in multiple locations.

    Gawd, but it sucked. There's not one thing positive about it that I can say.

    FMS was DEC's Forms Management System. It was a form system that came from the PDP-11 world to the VAX that let you design input screens. Datatrieve integrated very nicely with it. It wasn't a language; it was just a way to make screens.

    The company I was with jumped straight into 785s. Now that you gave the amplification, I remember hearing it mentioned but we somehow wound up in DecfForms, which also did screens and I/O. I don't remember anything relating it to Datatrieve, though.

    The app talking to the database wasn't much of a problem. I pulled my hair out trying to get the app to talk to DecForms correctly.

    Previously, I had debugged and maintained the predecessor of the app in pure assembly language, driving screens, getting input, talking to the database on a minicomputer, and driving output.

    If you were writing in VAX assembly, I believe that.

    DEC had a habit of making things that were so capable of handling every corner case that the default case could sometimes get weird. That was something they got worse about over time.

    Actually, it was 8 bit assembly. That company's problem was that they never developed a clear concise idea of where they were going to go.

    They made it up as they went along, which wound up taking longer and costing more to implement.

    I did some preliminary work with a PDP-11 because they thought it was a sufficient jump from the 8 bit stuff we'd rolled out company wide five years previously, but my results with it proved to upper management that we could not get to where they'd finally decided we needed to be on that platform - hence the VAXes instead.

    Initially laying out a long range plan with technical goals was something which continually seemed to escape upper management. Needless to say, that company is no more, and it was publicly traded on the NYSE for decades - not exactly a flash in the pan.

    I worked for a company like that, publicly traded for decades, now long gone. I wonder if we're talking about the same company, different offices?

    Interestingly enough, the name of the company I worked for still exists, but is owned by a German company now. The Wiki on it is a stub.

    We did all the development and support work for all 45 locations from one place. For the first decade, we were like a little startup isolated from all the other elements of company management, and reported directly to very senior management with no intervening levels. Later, that changed; we got folded into big-iron corporate IT and things deteriorated.

    If it had been the same company, we'd have known each other.

    It is funny though, how the same refrain seems to drift through so many companies.

    If I could figure out a way to get my job and my home life to alternate weeks when they try to kill me, that'd be great. They seem to like teaming up and hitting me on the same weeks. Or months. Whatever.

    throwingknife: Yeah, I guess so. I've heard of coffins coming up during floods. It looks like a lot of people have built boats and ships out of concrete.

    Yet another reason not to get a pool. At least an above-ground one can be gotten rid of a lot more easily.


    On Kage Baker's Mars, they even sail concrete canoes.

    Ja, I'm home early post-dentist. Half my head is missing, feeling slightly nauseated, opening Guinness.

    After the softball game tonight, there are a couple of pitchers of beer with my name on them.

    quinblake: Weird. My phone ate your html.

    Your Canadian phone is only sated by American HTML.

    Prolly puts Maple syrup on it too!

    And a big old pat of sweet butter, as God intended.


    Looking forward to your little slice of Hazard County.
