Sharp Aquos 65-inch TV Installation

      Here are the latest additions to our chapter inventory, a Sharp Aquos 65" TV and a Roku HD device. Ron Angerman and Randy Berry installed both on Saturday, March 21st, in Ron's hangar. It has a great picture, and it's internal sound system is robust enough that we will not need a supplemental sound source. We wish to thank Al Strickland for his generous donation of this TV, a remote control device, and a 25' cable with various attachments. The original remote was lost, and it was difficult to control the TV without one, so Al even ordered a new remote and donated it to the chapter. Also, we wish to thank Dave Hardy for donating a Roku HD device, which essentially turns this TV into a "smart" TV. We now have the capability of making computer presentations and viewing aviation videos and programs at our meetings and events. Ron has WIFI installed in his hangar, so we can also stream and watch aviation programs and videos via the internet. As you can see from the photo above, we placed the TV on top of one of Ron's tall storage cabinets, so it's located high enough that it can be viewed from most any position in the hangar without any obstructions, including over someone else's head. We've turned the stand we previously used for our 55" TCL TV into a speaker podium and laptop platform and moved the 55" TCL TV back to the 6J0 airport terminal to allow viewing of instructional courses and programs by members who fly in there and wish to watch them.
