Mr. Pink! GREAT to be reading you again!!
I can walk and talk but my vision is VERY poor.
Reading is tough and slow, typing is tedious, driving is no longer in my future but I survived 74 consecutive days of hospital food.
I'll never forget your excellent explanation of terminations on balanced lines and minimizing reflections. Your illustration using ping-pong balls was brilliant and readily understandable, so good a reprint is in order.
Your comment about my brain losing its neutral was timely and appreciated. I suffered my stroke Sunday morning July 20th/14. One week previous, SundayJuly 13th/14, I awoke to find we'd lost one leg of our incoming electrical service. Our power arrives via underground direct burial wiring which had developed a fault in a long buried underground junction box. Losing half our service was annoying but not as bad as if we'd lost our neutral.
Good to be reading you Gene and thanks for your, and everyone's, post(s).
I just ran across this thread, sad news indeed. I will miss his insight into many subjects. Does anyone know how Ron is doing? Please give him my best wishes for a speedy recovery.
And tell him I said " What happened, your brain power lose the neutral"?
