  1. >S< On Friday August 4 as I got back to the truck yard I was having a hard time breathing just sitting in the truck.  My walk over to my own vehicle (30 feet) really took my breath away.  I had to do something and remembered my Doctor had at one time prescribed a rescue inhaler for me.  I figured since my doctor usually will write a script if I call him, I'd ask him to reissue it.  The operator said that in order to do it Since my doctor was fully booked for the day that I needed to see the nurse practitioner and she would confirm or deny my request.  So I went over to the office the nurse said I'll take him right now.  We went back to an exam room and here's where it got interesting.   The Nurse Practitioner started the interview process and after about 8 questions she folded her laptop and said "I need to run an EKG on you real quick to figure something out" and left the room.  She came back in with another nurse and an EKG machine and said "What I'm going to determine here is whether you are going to the hospital in your car or if I'm calling an ambulance".  Needless to say I was transported to the Hospital in an Ambulance.   Upon admittance to the Hospital They asked what was wrong and I said "I'm fine now just a little short of breath sometimes and I just wanted a rescue inhaler re-prescribed for me".  Which I was by the time we got to the hospital.  They ran some tests on me they looked at my legs and took me for a Doppler test on my legs to see if I had any blood clots in my legs.  That came back negative.  They sent me for an ultrasound of my heart. Those results said my heart infraction rate was 20-21%.  I was bagged and tagged and shipped up to the Cardiac Care wing of the Hospital. "What about work tomorrow"? "Be glad you're alive tonight".   To make a 12 day story short.  I went into the Hospital weighing 459.8 pounds and came out weighing 395.8.  I went into the Hospital with a heart that was in both Atrial Fibrillation and Ventricular Tachycardia and left the Hospital with a Normal beating heart.  I went into the hospital with a pulse of 86 and left the hospital with a heart rate of 62.  However I am not out of the woods yet as my infraction rate is only 29%.  For the time being (next three months) I have to wear a Life Vest (Portable Defibrillator) and with diet, exercise, water restriction 1.8l per day of any liquid (water, milk, soda, jello, etc:) and Medication (7 in total) need to bring the infraction rate to a minimum of 35% and in 6 months up to 50% then I'm at the precipice of the forest looking at green fields.  I will be on disability for the time being unless a dispatching job comes available.  The ultimate goals are to reach a 65% infraction rate and bring my weight down into the low to mid 200 range.   I have charts for everything from type of food per meal and serving sizes to liquid intake vs. liquid emptied to weight every morning.  To say I'm just a bit ADD about my health now is a giant goddamn reality.  I'm keeping track of how much I walk and it's nice I have 24/7 access to a high school track that is 1/4 mile per lap.  The doctors want me to do what I can but so far 1 mile a day has been it on 4 walks. today I'm going to try for a full half mile walk before it starts raining.  The worst part is not only can I not drive my work truck, I'm not allowed to drive my own with this life vest. The state of Michigan has suspended my license until I'm off of it.   So far today I've consumed about 150ml of water and given back 1000 ml so I'm working out the fluids still.   I'll see if I can't find some of you on TS over the next few weeks and see how things progress.   Still alive and kickin' >S<
  2. Sorry about my absence recently, but as some may already know and now the rest will know. I'm an Over the road truck driver doing local runs since I was diagnosed with a mild Sleep arrhythmia.  Basically I don't snore but I do from time to time just stop breathing on the inhale.  My "Sleep Specialist" is really cool and set me up with a forced air CPAP device to stop this from happening. Long story short because of the newer rules of Obamacare my BlueCross and BlueShield (AWESOME INSURANCE) was replaced with a less than Stellar ASR Health Alliance Plan which reduced my coverage of consumable parts for my CPAP rig.  With BC/BS I was allowed every part every 60 days.  Now with ASR/HAP I'm only allowed consumables once every 6 months.   Needless to say with BC/BS I didn't really clean my gear all that well as by the time anything was growing I already had new parts installed.  Well I've contaminated myself with an upper respiratory biological infection.  Which if you don't know makes for an interesting time attempting to just breath let alone do truck and trailer inspections.  Next time you see a semi with a trailer look at it and realize that walking from the drivers door to the trailer connectors, connecting them then around the front of the truck, down the trailer checking the tandems and interior of the trailer then up the drivers side raising the landing gear ( about 30 turns counter clockwise to the jack handle) and back in the truck would take me from a resting heart rate of 72 to 160 and erratic, and my blood pressure from 122/78 to 154/114.  And of course my regular doctor said stop being a fatass and move.  I finally went to the ER and saw a doctor who hospitalized me.  He asked about meds and such and had me call my brother to bring in my CPAP gear.  When he took it apart I literally puked in the waste basket in the room.  The air valve had a huge culture growing on it of 4 different colors.  I never knew the mask could break down that far so I never cleaned it far enough.  They took blood samples and came back with a myriad of infections I was brewing inside me.  The doctor said it was good of me to come when I did as I probably would have been immobilized in one day and dead in 2 days.  Now I have my breathing back under control but my legs from mid-thigh down are still numb and I have a slight tremor in my hands, and a cough that would make a whooping crane proud.  I also seem to be puking dry heaves in the garbage quite a bit but the doctor says that's OK as long as it's just mucus that keeps coming out of my lungs and no more blood.   So needless to say it's going to be a bit longer before I can rejoin the fight.  But  I am watching.   Take care guys, see you soon.

    Welcome Sky, A few questions for you.. What's you're bird of choice? How much experience do you have in Flight Sims? Side number markings? Again welcome to JG51Molders >S<
  7. well as I said take it with a grain of salt.  I thought the nitrous was also used in the E4 model but Duxford says the E7 is as basic of the E4 with added lines and valving for drop tanks with later models having nitrous oxide tanks also.  My curiosity about it is the statement additional fuel line and valving.  Does this mean there is a possibility of not closing a valve when dropping the tank and having it dump the fuel through the drop tank port?  Plus I thought the E7 also ran a hotter Ata 601N to keep performance paces with the Spitfire Mk5.
  8. Some were from Diamler, some WIKI, and some from RAF Duxford museums website.  The engine specs for the Db601n and Db601e came from both Diamler and from WIKI, no confirmation from Duxford.  The propeller and high alt F4/z Supercharger came from Duxford alone (Though I had never heard of a multistage supercharger in the 109 thought it was worth a mention..   The engine BHp came from Diamler (confusing as hell to read that) and the WIKI of the series engine (not totally specific in some areas), including the Db605 which has nothing to do with our airfames in question.
  9.   Just thought you'd all like to know a little about these aircraft and the joys they can bring.   Bf109E-7 is basically an E4 with a 300L drop tank (1159BHp) Bf109E-7n is basically the E4N with a 300L drop tank Bf109E7NZ is an E4N with a 300L drop tank and a performance boost of Nitrous Oxide giving it a 700 Hp boost from 1100BHp to 1800BHp.  As with anything the extra boost means shorter life.  But you will gain escapability and short period dogfighting assistance.  In the F variants the Nitrous Oxide gave way to a combined Nitrous Oxide and Methyl alcohol mixture.    Bf109 F1 and F2 models all ran the 1159BHp Db601N Bf109F-1 w/ Mg/FFM 1159BHp DB601N with 60 round 20MM propeller hub firing. Bf109F-2 w/ Mg151/15 firing 200 rounds propeller hub firing 15MM Mauser round  at 680-740RPM at 850M/S (2750FPS) AP round only Bf109F-2 w/ Mg151/20 firing 200 rounds propeller hub firing 20MM Mauser round at  600-700RPM at 700-785M/S (depending on round composition) (2300-2580FPS) Bf109F-2 Tropical w/ Mg151/20 same as F2 w/Mg151/20 with additional sand filters added in the field. Bf109F4 varaints ran the Db601E (1.3Ata engines rated 1200BHp) Later (1.42Ata engines rated 1332BHp) and were fitted with a new improved broad blade propeller VDM9-12010 for improved altitude performance. Bf109F-4/R1 are same as all other Late model F carrying 2 wing mounted  Mg151/20 130 round 20mm Pods There is no mention of the F4/Z which was considered a high altitude fighter which had a multiple boost charger allowing for 1.3Ata at 8439M F variant radiator were also made thinner , mounted further back on the wing, and carried a thermostatic valve that opened and closed the radiators as needed.  The pilots also had the ability to open and close the water lines feeding the radiators although it was not recommended in combat.
  10. Just in time as I accidentally removed the original squad night thread.
  11. Also didn't see Merlin engine Altitude bug fix.  Unless this was it " Re-mapped power physics .dll which corrects the engine bug,  "  Because it doesn't specifically include the Merlin bug.
  12. Happy Birthday OGG

    Why not post our ages?  Just because I was 32 when T2 and I met in AirWarrior by Kesami playing on AOL for $1.99 hour on dial up in 1995.  That doesn't mean I'm old does it?  Hmmm maybe it does mean I'm old.  That could be why I play WW2 aviation games because they're a bit slower and because kids can kill me with a knife while I have a Vulcan cannon in Gears of War.   Then again I guess I am the old man around here.   >S<
