November 12, 2012: Saturday and time for
another visit to Folks Field. A pair of classic antiques showed up today.
This 1931 Ford belongs to a friend of Wendell's. WOW!
What can I say about this Aeronca Champ decked out in World War 2 paint and
markings as a forward observer for the artillery?
Here is another view showing modern head phones and a pair of GPS receivers to
guide the way. The second GPS is on the dash board. There is also a hand-held
two-way aviation radio.
November 16, 2011: Here are a few photos
from a trade show I attended in Atlanta. This photo is taken inside the Georgia
World Congress Center where they hold national business conventions. The camera
location is at the edge of the exhibit area. That first booth is a distributor for
Olson Technology, Inc. (my day job).
Dominic and Ray work for Multicom, Inc. They are based in Longwood, Florida. Some of my products are on the table in front of them.
The device with the OPAT label on it is an optical transmitter for cable
television signals. This trade show is where that particular model was first
introduced to the cable television industry.
Here is the same piece of equipment in the show booth for another of my
distributors. It is hiding in the equipment rack just below that red chassis that
says NEXUS. The OPAT transmitter is at eye-level which is good since this is an
active demo in this booth. That chassis below the sign that says Olson Technologies
has some transmitter and receiver modules used with CATV signals in forward and return
path services to subscriber homes. If you have a high-speed cable modem at home, it
could be sending and receiving your data via devices like these.
Here is the data sheet customized by my distributor
There was a third distributor at this trade show that had one of my OPAT
optical transmitters on display.
