Site Announcements

If you are not already a paid CFBRAA member I want to encourage you to become one.
Our association is doing good things and helping out many with special needs and scholarships.
We aren't doing as much as we would like to do and not as much as one would expect, especially if you or someone you are close to are in need of financial help.
We are limited by the funds we have available, so what we can do is modest compared to the needs.

Here is what we were able to accomplish this year with less than 300 paid members:
1. Helped 15 families in crisis situations, providing medical help, housing, utilities, clothing, etc. You provided nearly $11K in crisis support to families.
2. Helped 9 alumni families send their children to college, providing $6K in scholarship assistance.
3. Helped scores of new alumni with transportation, providing $4K for vehicle maintenance and fuel for the Alumni Support Center.
4. Provided $500 to the residents of the Alumni Support Center to help with Christmas presents for their families.
5. Provided $500 to the homes at BR as awards for the Christmas Contest winners.

Here are a few photos of the many photos that I have in boxes and such around the house:

I believe this was either Ringgold LA, or at the Georgia BMA Camps, summer of 1985. I'm the one on the left wearing Sunglasses.

A few memories in those fotos. Do any ESD/EMI work on those cables you all make?

I don't myself, as I am just a lowly electroplating technician. They do test the cables quite vigorously, so I'm sure they do test the cables and connectors for EMI/ESD also.

I've worked in the ordnance field for over 20 years. So I'm pretty knowledgeable about RF and its dangers to equipment and personnel. Thankfully I have all my digits after years of messing around with det cord. My current project has had some issues with EMI and we failed our HERO (Hazards to Electromagnetic Radiation to Ordnance) and E3 tests.
Anyways it is always a journey :roll:
