This week on The Best of Car Talk, Richie tried to save money on oil changes by installing a dual-filtration system on his truck. The resulting acrid smoke seems to prove Tom and Ray’s mantra that, “It’s the stingy man who pays the most.” Elsewhere, Mare’s husband accidentally inflated their tires to 90 PSI. Should Mare get rid of the tires, or her husband? Also, Scott’s beloved “Uncle Know-it-All" gave him some questionable transmission advice, so he’s turning to two Know-Nothings; John’s trying to slow down his lead-foot son by putting blocks of wood under the gas pedal; and did you know that William Shakespeare was Italian? Neither did we, but Tom and Ray seem to think he was. There’s much ado about a whole lot of nothing, this week on The Best of Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: April 4, 2015] 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Magliozzi, Ray Magliozzi. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/150404/rt_cart_150404_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

This week on the Best of Car Talk, can an omelet save an engine? A friend suggested that Sasha use eggs in his cracked radiator. Was this advice to actually stop the leak, or just to give Sasha something to snack on while waiting for the tow truck?Elsewhere, John put wooden blocks under the gas pedal to slow down his leadfoot son; but is worried that the speeding tickets savings may need to go towards a new transmission.Also, Debra may need to resort to whacking the steering wheel to start her car; Ron's horn sounds when he turns his steering wheel; on Stump the Chumps, we find out if Heidi had to lock her husband in the cellar to keep him from changing her timing belt; and, are Tom and Ray's stupid questions really profound existential Philosophy?All this and more, this week on the Best of Car Talk.

This week on Car Talk, good intentions go bad. For starters, Todd decided to buy his girlfriend a 1973 Ford LTD, on the premise it would be safe and easy to work on. Unfortunately, the car's loud backfire has led to one dead cat, several deceased goldfish, and one very strained relationship. Elsewhere, Kate's friends decided to surprise her by picking her up in her car. The only problem? They didn't know how to drive a stick, and burned out her clutch. And out in Montana, Dari's mechanics were fixing a sensor on her truck when it just happened to fall off the lift, at full height. Also, Peter in Alaska discovers a new Primordial soup on his dipstick; and should Sven realize his life-dream of owning a '62 Mini, even if it's been sitting on blocks for 25 years and the owner won't tell him why? All this, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: May 12, 2012] 1. Language: English. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/rt/cart/120512/rt_cart_120512_sample.mp3.

James Gleick's The Information is a sweeping history of information, going back to the invention of writing and the African tradition of talking drums. He tells Steve Paulson that the invention of various information technologies has changed the very nature of consciousness. Gleick describes some of the key breakthroughs in information technology, including the invention of the telegraph and the more recent understanding of information as mathematical. He also explains why information is not the same as knowledge.Next, Borges' The Library of Babel has inspired generations of writers. And now, many scientists regard his library of never-ending books as a metaphor for the new scientific view of reality, including theories about parallel universes. Here, we read several excerpts from the story.Then, Nicholas Carr believes the Internet is rewiring the human brain with its instant access to all sorts of information. Are we losing our ability to focus on one thing for any length of time? He makes the provocative argument that our reliance on the Internet is leading to shallow thinking.After that, information overload seems to be the quintessential 21st century problem. Actually, people have worried about this for centuries, going back to the ancient Romans. Ann Blair provides a short history of information-gathering, from note-taking to the invention of encyclopedias, and how many scholars have tried to battle information overload.And finally, what are the basic buildings blocks of the universe? Some physicists now say they're not subatomic particles or even the laws of physics, but information itself. Physicist Paul Davies explains, and says it's time to question old theories about the fundamental structure of the universe. He says we need to examine the far-reaching implications of quantum physics. [Broadcast Date: August 10, 2012] 1. Language: English.

In this hour, writer Michael Pollan (The Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food) tells Steve Paulson that a lot of what's on supermarket shelves isn't food and that Americans have many options if they want to improve the quality of their diet. He recommends going organic, shopping at farmer's markets and using CSA's. He says healthy food may cost more up front, but it all evens out when you factor in the health care costs of eating junk. Next, we visit the Dane County Farmer's Market, just a few blocks from our studios, and hear from the farmers who sell their crops there. And Brad Kessler was a writer in New York City. He's still a writer, but now he lives on 75 acres in Vermont with a small herd of goats. His book Goat Song: A Seasonal Life, A short History of Herding, and the Art of Making Cheese talks about what it's like to live with the animals that feed you. Kessler tells Jim Fleming about his life, his goats, and making chevre. Then, we hear a bit more from the farmers of the Dane County Farmer's Market about what they've brought to market today. Also, writer and cartoonist Lynda Barry (Ernie Pook's Comeek) is an outspoken left-wing intellectual with an urban sensibility who now lives off the grid in rural Wisconsin. She tells Steve Paulson how that happened. Barry's latest graphic novel is called What It Is. And finally, writer Michael Perry is the author of Truck: A Love Story" and "Coop: A Year of Poultry, Pigs and Parenting. He talks with Anne Strainchamps about his life combining writing with the new "back to the land" movement, and how he reconciles aspects of animal husbandry like butchering with raising his small daughters.

Hunter in 2008 described living in The Bronx "at the end of the D [subway] train, just off 205th Street, on Bainbridge Avenue and Hull Avenue. It was very Irish, and then you could go just a few blocks away and hit major Italian". A chance encounter with playwright Beth Henley, when the two were trapped alone in an elevator, led to Hunter's being cast in Henley's plays Crimes of the Heart (succeeding Mary Beth Hurt on Broadway), and Off-Broadway's The Miss Firecracker Contest.

RF and Microwave Filter

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Radio frequency (RF) and microwave filters represent a class of electronic filter, designed to operate on signals in the megahertz to gigahertz frequency ranges (medium frequency to extremely high frequency). This frequency range is the range used by most broadcast radio, television, wireless communication (cellphones, Wi-Fi, etc...), and thus most rf and microwave devices will include some kind of filtering on the signals transmitted or received. Such filters are commonly used as building blocks for duplexers and diplexers to combine or separate multiple frequency bands.
