Rickie Traeger: FT-450D Dial/Faceplate Issue & Warmer Weather




Rickie Traeger

Good morning everyone!  Hopefully everyone was able to go outside and enjoy some nice weather yesterday!  NWS said it got to 73 degrees.  I don’t know itif it actually got that high or not. It definitely felt nice though!  I was thinking it was lower 60’s, because it wasnt to hot or too cold.  Either way, it was pretty darn nice outside overall. Then some storms rolled through. I forgot to do some time lapse, grrrrrr.   This morning it is still raining out.  

I went and checked out my antennas and stuff while I was outside.  My coax is getting weather torn on my HF.  Soooooo I don’t know how much longer I have before I will have to replace it.  Speaking of ham radio. My FT-450D had an issue. When I go to turn the freq dial, it would skip around. So I asked some local hams if they had any ideas on how to fix it. They said take the faceplate off and tighten the dial down. Because it probably gotten loose.  Sooooooooooooooooo………….   I took the radio apart, then got to the faceplate and holy cow talk about frustrating! There was a tiny tiny tiny screw on the dial. I am talking probably the smallest screw ever I swear.  They had hidden it under the rubber of the dial. SMFH…..   So I finally get it off, thanks to William for lending me the tool to do it.  But guess what, lol.   Yeah, more issues!   So, I set it off to the side for a bit, so I can take a breather and try to evaluate the situation.    This FT-450D is all taken apart right now. It is a good radio overall, but holy cow a pain to work on!!!   I am to the point of probably just selling it off, instead of messing with it.  I dunno yet.  I am on the fence cuz it is a good radio. But very frustrating to mess with, lol.

 

 








Rickie Traeger: Chrome Stopped Loading My Website Graphics




I think I may have found out the issue that I been trying to troubleshoot all day!  It is simple to, but confusing!

I have had an issue with the graphics loading on here.

When I use the chrome browser, they do not load. But if I use the firefox browser the site loads perfectly!  Sooooooooo, it looks like it is not an issue with my website after all and it is a chrome issue!

With that being said, it is a pain to work on the website when chrome don’t want to load the graphics. It makes it very challenging. OK, a real pain in the butt. But now that I have narrowed it down, I have to figure out why chrome ain’t loading the graphics now.

It definitely has me wondering and scratching my head going, hmmmmm.

It worked great on chrome, then all of a sudden it did not load the graphics. And the site loads great on the other browsers.

My question to you is:  Why all of a sudden did chrome stop loading my graphics, out of the blue?

Tuesday November 5th 2019 

So I been trying to add the pages back on to this website. I got several of them posted now 🙂   Be sure to go check those out!

Ran into an issue though. Some reason the graphics are not loading on my site now.  The server is barely even on a load, so I know the resources are free. Wondering why they are not loading now??? Frustrating, lol

So I been on this Mt Dew kick for awhile now. Starting today, I am going to see if I can stop drinking Mt Dew. I tried a few weeks back, but I got a major headache because the lack of caffeine.  I am going to try to drink just 1 a day now for a few days, then do every other day. So I still have the caffeine, but not as much. Crazy…  A simple pop, can give you a major headache if you don’t have one…SMH

They are talking more snow tonight.  So ready for spring time, and it has not even been officially winter yet, lol.  Bring the warmth!
