Solutions For Efficient Lighting Situations

The USB Powered Desk Lamp helps to save on the electricity bill, is contemporary, and simultaneously trumps the dark night when the power outage arrives in an unannounced manner. The USB Powered Desk Lamp is a win-win situation, suitable, fashionable, and there are soft-touch bedside lamps for those with unique conditions.

Using the popular term that some inject occasionally, let’s get campy. Feeling campy.

Energy Efficient Light Bulbs

At first glance, it seems apparent that energy efficient light bulbs are somewhat expensive. I do not mean to offend anyone, but the CFL bulb is a loser in my opinion. There has to be other options available.

LED bulbs do have potential, but realistically the technology may not be ready for years. The advertisements boast claims of extended lifespan, but these claims may not be totally honest. Problems and complaints are numerous. The information is revealing (pun included). Hint: GE 8-Pack Long Life Reveal 75-Watt Color-Enhancing Multipurpose Incandescent Light Bulb 73963.

Solution: Passive Infrared Technology

Perhaps there is hope for the LED genre. Wireless Motion Sensing Lights is a genre that’s very appealing to those seeking solutions to lighting problems. Passive Infrared lighting could be a step in the right direction. Motion sensored lights is another genre.

What is publicly deemed as efficiency may not always be efficient. When the going gets tough, the tough get rough service light bulbs. Very good. Very, very good. Illuminating.

It’s Time To Put Up The 20 Meter EDZ And Add 3-dB Gain Over Your Dipole!

This 20 Meter Extended Double Zepp (EDZ) antenna should produce a 3-dB over the average half-wave dipole. This is significant enough to try it. An automatic tuner should tune this antenna with no problem. If one should feel it necessary, a 1:1 Balun would do the job.

Basically, the Extended Double Zepp Antenna is a pair of 5/8 wave elements. The total length is approximately 1.25 wavelengths long.


(A) One leg length (quarter wave) is… 625/F (MHz)

(B) Stub length is… 142/F (MHz)

The 12 Meter EDZ Antenna

The same principals apply for the 12 Meter EDZ. For each leg, use 25 feet 3 inches. For the stub, use 5 feet 5 inches.
