I am new to CAP...and new to the AE Officer position. I would like to test for the Yeager Award sometime in the future. But, it looks formidable. One exam...100 questions. Really? How do you get your arms around something like that?

Do you just read the book...take the test (I know, it is open book)...and hope you remember everything?

Ideas?

I am new to CAP...and have just been asked to take on the AE Officer position.

Since I am new, I am struggling a bit with getting my arms around the job.

What are some suggestions on getting started?

On the main board inside the radio is a empty connector pin set (10 or 12 pins?) that is used for the remote head cable. IIRC, it's next to where the accessory cable plugs in to. That should have everything you need.

It's a horrible connector to work with. The contacts are tiny, and the spring-loaded collar is a bear to reassemble.

Figured that to be the case! Thanks for the help!

I hate to destroy a good mike just to get a cable with connector. I actually have been watching that to simply get a spare mike since 5300 parts seem to have grown rather scarce. Sigh.

I have understood that audio out is available via this connector (seems reasonable with 13 pins) but when I look at the inside of my mobile mike, they don't have enough wires to cover audio out. What I was hoping for was to build a headset to use with the mobile for base use. One of the ones that cover one ear and have a boom mike. Probably not doable with what is now available and truly hearing what a pain this connector must be to deal with. I'm having enough hassles with the idiot connector for ignition nonsense and speaker. Who ever heard of having to jump connections to use the internal speaker or to disable ignition sense. Give me an Icom any day.

Whine, whine.

At any rate, thanks for the help.

All,

 I was just wondering if anyone was willing to sell two C/1stLt Aquamarine Patches for BDUs to me? If you are willing please shoot me an email for more mailing information!! Thanks!

As a working human factors engineer who designs cockpits for NVG compatibility (among other things such as symbology and control design) you've warmed my heart, Blanding. This might be my favorite post yet in Captalk. Quoting 1472, forsooth! (I was one of the contributing authors to rev. E and up).


Heh - neat. I helped contribute to the bridge design section of G, but admittedly it was more of a review with my limited experience. Glad to see another HF community member around!

Not every state has a militia. I'm going to count the NG because in the event of something like this happening the NG will be federalized.

Every state has some sort of law allowing them to draft people into the state militia, or at least places men of certain ages (varies) into the "unorganized militia".  This is different from State Defense Forces.

That's a pretty bold statement. Now either back it up or take it back.

Some of these folks seem to be salivating over the idea of somehow getting drafted into some kind of wartime service.  Some collars may have been overly starched and cutting off blood to the brain. ;)

Dream all you want, but its never going to happen.

What are the ages of the MPs in CAP? Are the majority of us well over 55? Maybe even well over 60?
