WaveBox portable microwave WaveBox

Just the thing for when you want your favourite snack while offroading - a portable microwave,
you will need a 20 amp rated socket not the normal fag lighter one - at around 140 pounds I don't
think it will replace the good old Calor gas cooker banghead

At around 240 watts I don't think it will either.

Back in the 80's I was working on a different sort of portable microwave - output [classified] kW and it ran on aviation fuel. Well, it did if you thought of the aircraft and the radar as a complete system. Could have added a whole new dimension to ox roasts. WaveBox portable microwave Devil-0060

A balise typically needs no power source. In response to radio frequency energy broadcast by an antenna mounted on the train, the balise transmits information to the train, such as: location of the balise; the geometry of the line, such as curves, gradients and speed limits; and the position of any signals. Balises are typically deployed in pairs so that the train can determine its direction of travel A->B from direction B->A. Balises often operate with equipment on the train to provide a system that enhances the safety of train operation.

So where's the power to boil your brain then Question

The AEW radar had a link to the navigation unit which (amongst other things) stopped you turning on the transmitter too near the ground. It always worried me that the altitude was formatted as a signed value...
