Ten years of MightyOhm

On this day in 2008 I created my first post on a brand new website. The site looked a lot different back then, and it wasn’t until the following year that I shipped my first electronic kit, the HV Rescue Shield! Today marks ten years of MightyOhm.

Mike and Key ARC Flea Market, Sat. Mar 10, Puyallup, WA

The 37th annual Mike and Key ARC Electronics Show and Flea Market is just under two weeks away.

I have no affiliation with Mike and Key, but in my opinion this is the best electronics swap meet in the greater Seattle area. I go every year. (If you know of others, post in the comments!)

The Mike and Key flea market will take place on Saturday, March 10th at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup. Doors open at 9AM (earlier for sellers). I’m looking forward to meeting other PNW electronics and ham radio folks there. I have a seller table again this year so I should be pretty easy to find. I’ll be selling a few kits along with ham radio gear and miscellaneous electronics.

Mike and Key hosts ham radio exams during the swap meet, so if you’re interested in getting a ham radio license this is one opportunity. More details on the event flyer.

More info.

Schrödinger’s Martini: Geiger Counter as mixologist

Photo: Lenore Edman

Josh Meyer and Jonathan Foote created this scintillating cocktail robot for Barbot 2013. They also exhibited it at the DNA Lounge Cocktail Robotics Grand Challenge last July.

A MightyOhm Geiger Counter samples radioactive decay from a martini glass that contains a small amount of uranium. If the number of clicks in a set period is even, the robot dispenses vermouth into the glass. If the count is odd, it dispenses gin, therefore creating a wet or dry martini based on the random process of radioactive decay.

Place your holiday orders by November 30th!

News flash –

As I mentioned on The Amp Hour, I’ll be traveling abroad for most of December. If you’d like to order a Geiger Counter or HV Rescue Shield, make sure to place your order by next Thursday, November 30th. I’ll update the shipping status page to reflect this.

If you are interested in purchasing a Geiger counter kit and miss the deadline, no worries! You can also purchase one from Adafruit.

Happy Holidays!
Jeff

Economy shipping is now available for international customers

Starting today I am now offering two shipping options for international customers – expedited and economy shipping.

As some folks are no doubt already aware, USPS Priority Mail International costs have more than doubled in the past few years.

Back in 2009 it cost about $12.95 to ship a USPS small flat rate box overseas. As of this year, the cost to ship that same small flat rate box is now over $30!

I’ve received feedback from several customers that the costs to ship overseas were too high, so I started looking at other options and found that USPS First-Class Package International offers slower delivery times (4-6 weeks) but costs less than half as much as USPS Priority Mail. In fact, the current USPS First-Class Package International rates are pretty close to what I was paying for Priority Mail when I first started selling kits. With this new economy shipping option, I can ship a single kit to Canada for $9.50 and to most of the rest of the world for $13.50.

I hope that the economy option appeals to overseas customers who are willing to wait a bit longer to receive their kit. For folks who are more impatient, I am still offering Expedited shipping (via USPS Priority Mail). For super time-critical orders I can also offer Express shipping on a case by case basis (please contact me before placing your order).

To learn more about my kits or to place an order:
MightyOhm Geiger Counter
AVR HV Rescue Shield

Important note: Regardless of shipping method, VAT taxes, duties, import tariffs, customs fees, etc. are always the responsibility of the buyer.

Chad Lawson is posting a series of videos about learning to make things on his site at verbosemode.tv.

In his most recent video, Chad talks about radiation, radiation therapy, and his experiences building (and fixing) the MightyOhm Geiger Counter Kit.

Thanks for the kind words, Chad!

The Mike and Key Amateur Radio Club Swap Meet is next weekend in Puyallup, WA

The 36th annual Mike and Key Amateur Radio Club Electronics Show and Fleamarket will be held next Saturday, March 11th at the Washington State Fairgrounds in Puyallup, WA.

This is one of the best amateur radio events in Washington state and one that I look forward to every year. A couple years ago I came home with a working Hameg HM-507 analog+digital oscilloscope (pictured above) for a hundred bucks!

I have a table at the swap meet this year, and I’ll be selling Geiger counter kits, misc. electronics, and amateur radio gear. Look for the MightyOhm banner.

I hope to meet some local folks there!
