Motorcycle weekend trip on Lifan 200 gy-3b

On one of the sunny spring days, I took a motorcycle ride. The weather is perfect for motorcycle trips. The big water has already descended, the banks have dried up. Motorcycle Lifan 200 gy-3b class enduro beautifully goes both on the asphalt and off-road. On this motorcycle you can easily overcome several tens of kilometers along a flat road, and then off-road where you wish. The motorcycle is lightweight, weighing only ~ 125kg. If you get stuck, it’s easy to pull it out. At the same time, it easily takes on as much weight. The motorcycle Lifan 200 gy-3b is equipped with a full-size rubber: in front on a 21-inch drive, behind an 18-inch drive. The 200cm2 motor has enough power for driving along the track at a cruising speed of 85km, although it is possible to accelerate faster. The transmission has 5 gears. For the duration of the break-in, I switch speeds at 17 km/h, i.e. at 2nd speed I switch to 17 km/h, at 3 in 34 km/h, on 4 in 51 km/h, on 5 in ~ 60 km/h. Speed ​​is easy to watch on the digital speedometer. If you have any questions, ask, I’ll be happy to answer.

Eternal granite curbs

Eternal granite curbsSuch curbs met on one of the streets of Kirov. Curbs are granite, made by hand. They show traces of giant drills. The borders were placed on this section of the road about 60 years ago. Each curb weighs from 100 to 1000kg. All the borders have different sizes – length from 1 to 4 meters! We will not repeat each curb. Now they are dismantled from this place. It is a pity that there is a replacement of the eternal natural materials for not durable and cheap.

Self-made extension cord from computer wires

I decided to make an extension cable from unused cables. These cables lay for many years in the pantry. Initially, they were intended to power servers. The plus of this cable is that it is in double thick insulation, and has 3 wires. The cross-section of each wire is 0,75mm2. We do not use a ground wire, so I connected it to another wire. Most importantly – do not forget to dismantle the “Grounding” contact in the plug. The total length of the resulting extension was more than 10 meters. The extension cord will undoubtedly find application in any farm, especially – it is pleasant to use a thing made by own hands.

Telegraph key of the radio station Angara, USSR

Telegraph key for military radio stations R-131, R-129, R-143, Glet-N and the civil Angara. The key is not convenient in the adjustment. Some round nuts have to be completely removed from the key, since with them the key can not be adjusted. Instead of a nut, put several washers. Round nuts are not convenient to unscrew or fix. If the new telegraph key has been stored for a long time, then the nuts can sour, and twisting them without the help of pliers is very problematic. If the lid is closed to the end, then there is a possibility that it will touch the manipulator. Therefore, the lid does not close completely. On the key it is not convenient to work for novice telegraphists. There are many such telegraph keys on sale. The key is fixed on the radio station behind the plate from the bottom of the case.

Connector for the cable 5D-FB

I present to your attention the connector for the cable 5D-FB. The connectors are purchased on a popular Chinese site. Since 2013. I have a 5D-FB cable. When the cable was purchased, a large search was made for the connectors. Such connectors for the 5D-FB were not on sale at all! A conventional PL-259 was used for the RG-58 cable, it was drilled in two diameters (under the central core and under the outer diameter). The photo shows the PL-259 and the 5D-FB cable. The connector remains up to now, but I would like to find a native connector. And in 2017 the connectors for 5D-FB appeared on sale. They cost 2.5 $. The 5D-FB cable is popular, for HF bands the most suitable and not expensive option. Cheaper than just REXANT (analog RG-58, but the characteristics are worse).

I present to your attention the connector for the cable 8D-FB. Over the past few coaxial cable 8D-FB has become very popular in the world. Until recently, this cable was viewed as a novelty and preferred to take something familiar. At the moment the picture has changed. Radio amateurs are willing to buy an 8D-FB cable for their needs. The cable goes both with a fully copper central core, and aluminum copper-coated. The diameter of the central core is 2.6 mm. The diameter of the outer shell is 11.1mm. With an aluminum central core, the cable has a light weight, which allows it to be suspended without a supporting cable. The cable has good technical characteristics, low attenuation. One downside is that it’s hard to find good connectors for 8D-FB. There are practically no connectors. And the fact that there is – a very cheap fake branded connectors.
