Curtis,
I have to disagree with you on the replacement on the batwing, That is what I have and it works fine, the newer ones don't work as well, a couple people at the park tryed them and took them back, the old batwings still work the best. Sorry to hear about your back, hope that the Roman Chair fixed you up.

Jay,
Happy Birthday Buddy, Hope that you had a wonderful day, and many more of them from here.
Frank

Good morning everyone!
Happy Birthday Jay! Have a great day!
Glad Lynne and Jerry are getting their baby lined out!
We stopped at the Army base today, and are getting the pickup her spa treatment! They do a fantastic job of cleaning her inside and out! The cost is 180 baht/6 dls!! We go to Sukothai tomorrow, for our yearly family get together! It is a lot of fun, and really good food!
We used the regular bat wing antenna, and a converter box, and it worked very good in our MH!
Everyone have a great day! Rail!

Good Morning,


Happy Birthday Jay. I too hope that it warms up as I plan on washing the MH. Good coffee today.


We woke up to flashing lights this am. A State Trooper car in front of our house blocking the road, one further down the road just past the intersection, and another on the T road from us. They are turning all traffic (including semis and this is a narrow two lane country road) around. There is a car in the tree just past the T road. Looks like they either fell asleep or missed the turn. Either way, they have been there since before 5am and it is now 8am and the ambulance just got here. Accident reconstruction crew was here so there is a DOS (dead on scene) in the car.


Hope everyone else's day turns out much better than this person's family will. Prayers to them for what they are about to face.


You all have a great day! Keep it safe. Lynne

Are you saying you're using the Batwing for digital TV? My metal shop may be my problem but I've never heard anyone say they used the old bat wing with any success for digital. Maybe I'll try it outside the shop.
VERY INTERESTING!

Yes Curtis, my batwing works on my digital flatscreen. They make a little addon that some people use, but mine is the one that came on my unit. I have noticed that the range is around 50 miles though, it is hard to pick up channels beyond that.

Good Morning all. I'm being rude and typing this at breakfast with the guys. But I has to tell ya'll we are watching small planes land out here and then we had a hot air balloon come drifting down the runway like he was going to land.
Pretty cool and different.

Shame about the driver Lynne. I pray he was alone and no one else died with him. Driver Error Deaths should never be a group participation event.

Jay, Happy Birthday! May you live one minute longer than you want!

Oh and the restaurant coffee and French Toast was GOOD this morning.

Back is tender but better.

In theory you should be good with a batwing if your TV is digital. If you have an old CRT TV you will need a converter to watch TV. All stations broadcast digital except if you are close to Mexico. Then you can still pickup the old signals.

Had to take the tractor in yesterday for some work. The PTO switch is intermittently turning on and off. Bought a switch but could not get the old one out. Tractor is still under warranty so after trying to get the old switch out for a couple hours I hauled it to the dealer. I now have tractor separation anxiety!

Going to be a lovely weekend, but no rain. Still watering like crazy trying to keep all of the important things hydrated. Lawn is really dry, it crackles when you walk on it. Only thing growing is the dandelions so easy to spray them - see something green in the lawn, spray it.

Everyone have a great day and a wonderful weekend. I am unsupervised for another 2 days!
