I had my 2nd interview. It was more a psych evaluation type of interview. They are looking to see if I am a good fit for their company, how I think, what things drive me, what difficulties I would have. Some questions:
Glenn has been gone 4 years today. We miss you, Glenn. And, contrary to what you’d thought, you are not forgotten.
I have my 2nd interview today at BCBE. Think good thoughts. Pray to the Creator. Wish me luck. Etc. etc.
I put in the antenna in my teardrop trailer project.
Like my radio transceiver antenna mount? It took me about one hour to create it. Good or bad? Well, it’s pretty exact in specs. “Pretty exact”? Within reason I mean. It will go on the teardrop trailer and connect to the Stryker SR-955HP 10 Meter Amateur Mobile Transceiver. Eh? Here’s a Revit drawing of one and a photo of the other.
I won an auction for a Uniden PC-122 CB/SSB radio. This is the same radio as the Radio Shack TRC-465. It’s a solid little radio. I am thinking that MV can use it when we travel together. We’re always fighting with battery power and range with some 2-way radios that we have.
For those who don’t know, SSB (Super Side Band, or just Sideband) radio is a type of radio signal that has no carrier wave but sends a signal through pure modulation. Eh? Read up if you want. These radios operate on the same frequencies as regular CB radios, either just above (Upper Side Band) or just below (Lower Side Band). The upside of SSB is increased range. The downside is that the receiver cannot lock on to any carrier wave but must adjust their receiving modulation up or down to hone in on the signal.
I shocked myself yesterday. I bought a 5×8 folding trailer. See campers.allansplace.ca. If you read this already, you’ll see I returned it this morning. Two reasons: They wouldn’t take delivery from their factories until the end of November; and it was too expensive, not only to purchase it but to purchase materials to build it. I will look for a 4×8 trailer.
I shocked the world today. I walked into Good Earth Coffee House and ordered … “Earl Grey tea, please.” The server, stunned, just looked at me with wide eyes for 3 or 4 seconds. I wish I had a body cam. She turned to her coworker and said, slowly, “Earl Grey tea.” The coworker widened her eyes. “Okaayyy.”
I’ve been coming here for several years, on and off, and have always had coffee. But, once in a while, you have to shock the world.
I have decided to sign up for ASET’s Mentoring program to fine-tune my skills in my search for employment. I’ve applied for 41 positions and had 8 interviews. I’ve reworked my resume a few times and have drafter countless cover letters, some of which I have not sent (like to ISL Engineering, as they adamantly require APEGA membership). I have been close in a few. Still, in the six months since convocation, nothing solid. Getting a little concerned. So I’m hoping a little guidance from a Mentor will offer some insight.
