I see that there seems to be a decently rated software defined radio available. 30 books or so on Amazon so I am thinking about ordering one to play with. I wonder if it would re spark my interest that I had as a kid when I made my first crystal radio. I kind of drifted away from that when I realized the visual aspect of building stuff. I mean I always liked trying to find the furthest.

So my old headphones that served me well for a couple of years but I got the cable caught under my chair and it made the one side flaky. I had really liked them other than the long cord though but in the grand scheme of things I guess too long would be better than too short.. I decided since I liked them I’d go with Sennheiser again and chose the Sennheiser HD 4.

Well I had an [Earthmate PN-40 “Delorme PN-40](http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001FVLTNA?ie=UTF8&tag=deth&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B001FVLTNA">DeLorme “Earthmate PN-40 “Delorme PN-40”) which I liked a lot. It had good accuracy from what I could tell but I never really got the chance to use it. The first time I got very short battery life. I returned it and they repaired it. The second time I got it back and it just didn’t power on. Then I received it again and If I had to guess I put the batteries in backwards and it didn’t work.

I’ve been reading about the new Delorme PN-20 GPS. It looks pretty interesting. It comes with Delorme’s USA Topo 6.0. The GPS can show aerial photos too. Just seems real interesting to me. The couple of reviews I’ve read on it say it isn’t perfect but at least they’re adding something a bit different. I hope this becomes the norm by the time I need a new GPS.
