N6MQR Designed All-Electric Car:

Funny thing...

I originally read the article on the day it came and was intrigued by the fact that the Harrison Daily Times didn't mention his call sign. I checked QRZ and the FCC database for Leroy Max Jennings. Nothing, no call sign and then...found him by last name in the database.
It isn't Leroy, It's Le Roy Max Jennings! N6MQR

Excellent proof reading and quality control by the local fish wrapper!

The funny thing is when they publish such intense articles, such as the ones below, everything is described down to the most trivial of facts:

Mrs. Smith reported to police that an apple pie she had just baked, disappeared from the window sill that had been used to cool the pie...and etc.

A hubcap was reported missing from a Chevrolet Impala left parked in the local Walmart lot for 20 minutes...

Such is life in small town America!

Best Regards,
Dennis

I would really like to see an all electric car become economically viable. A daily range of 150 miles would be generally practical and, indeed, that kind of performance has been claimed.

But I have never been able to get a straight answer about about range reduction when it's zero degrees outside and you need to heat the car or when it's 100 degrees outside and you would like air conditioning.

Use the same method for heat & air conditioning as when you ride a horse (transportation).
