I remember the days when I used to listen to a.m. radio from all over the country at night. Lots of fun.

As far as reception goes, have never had an issue with them fading in or out.


If I had a complaint, it would be that there are only Five Stations on AM, and Five more Stations on FM that can be set as Memory Buttons.


I wish I had Ten in each Band.

The a.m. antenna I bought from the company was great! I live in Northern Nevada where there are lots of mountains that block a.m. reception and the antenna overcame much of that.

I would like to know how the receptions is on the cc radio. The same man that said that over the air radio is going away also said that the c crain radios are junk. I don't think so but I have never had one. I think that if they were junk then all of those coast to coast listeners would send them back. Brian Sackrider

Sorry, I don't know of any Fix for your Radio's, but I always lose all
settings when I unplug the Cord, and remove the Batteries, and leave
it for an hour or so.


All settings in memory are erased.


It is odd that both radios are suffering the same problem, and that it
is All the memory Buttons and not just one or two.


One of my Radio's had a problem with the On and Off Switch. I bought
some of that tuner Cleaner, and sprayed all around that Switch, and it
started working again.


If it were me, I would call the Crane Company and talk to a live
person, and see if they can give you an answer, or pass you to someone who could.


Hope you get those Radios fixed.

which one to try?

Hi all,
I have a question about two glucose readers.  One is the Freestyle Libre and the other is the Dexcom.  I know that the Libre app is accessible but I don't know anything about the Dexcom.  My doctor wants me to get the Dexcom because it has alarms and the Libre does not.  The downside of it is that you have to enter in codes every so often.  To me, if it is accessible that doesn't really matter because there is always Aira or some way to work that out.  Does anyone have any answers or where I can go to find out more?  Thanks in advance.

Years ago, I spoke with Bob Crane one day. He is the owner of the company. Apparently he just happened to be answering the phones that day. Anyhow, I purchased their a.m. radio antenna from the company at that time and I loved it. Mr. Crane was a very nice and helpful man. I told him that I was blind and he and I had a short but very pleasant conversation. It’s a good company.

Sluggish Boot on Windows 10

Samuel Wilkins
 

Hello all, I am having a problem with windows 10.  Since upgrading from windows 7, I have noticed that my computer is taking an inordinate amount of time to start up.  This happens when coming out of hibernation and when starting cold, it does not happen when choosing to restart.  I have set my computer to beep when it starts up, and I have found it takes approximately 1 minute and 20 seconds until I hear the beep.  This has only happened since upgrading to windows 10, as windows 7 used to start up fine.  I have a quad core I7 processor, and I have been told by sighted assistance that the screen stays blank until the beep. This happens even when fast boot is enabled.  Can anyone tell me how I could resolve this?  Thank you in advance.

Before you update you need to update those drivers to the current ones. I have a lanova and you are out of date for those drivers.

Subject: [TechTalk] Updating to windows 10

Hi,
So, I stopped using Windows about 4 years ago and switched to Mac OS full-time.
Before that time, I had a all-in-one Lenovo desktop that ran windows 10. Recently, I aquired a studio desk for my music set-up, and I decided to resurrect my old desktop just because why not, and the desk had a second layer, so I could easily fit both the iMac and the Lenovo on it.
Well, it's been a couple of weeks since then, and I saw that there was an update to windows 10, (I believe it was 1909, I'm not currently sitting at the machine to varify, but it deffinetly had the numbers 19.) When I tried to im install it, it said something about an issue with the RealTech drivers I had and that they needed to be updated.
This honestly doesn't really bother me, because it's not like I'm making this my full-time PC again, I'll most likely just use it for gaming and stuff like that, but still, it doesn't hurt to be on the letest version of an OS, especially where security patches are concerned.
So, if anyone has any info reguarding what's happening, that would be great.
Thanks for reading,
John.

Roku.

Carolyn Arnold
 

Could someone explain how Roku works? Do you stream through
your Wi-Fi? Does it improve the picture like cable does? Can
you operate more than one TV with it, and if so, how? Does
the talking remote cost extra, or is it like a smart phone
with some sort of voice screen reading? Is installation
complicated? Are there tiers or levels of it like with
cable?

Anything you can tell me will be more than I know. Thanks
for any help.

It worked much better that what I was expecting. The program is very accessible and easy to use. Well, I think that it is easy because it is accessible.

Hi. The same company that distributes CCleaner has a recovery tool called Recuva. It is quite accessible and I believe they do have a trial version. However, it must be noted that file recovery doesn't work as straightforward as might be expected because a lot of what is recovered depends on how clean or corrupt your disk's sectors are. Also, If you have overridden a file and wish to recover it, great chance is you might not be able to. Still, the success rate of file recovery can be quite high, with Recuva, depending on the state of your disk. Cheers!
