Aye Eye Bed-Time Story Generator

Machine Learning is used for various hard practical problems, such as the safe control of autonomous cars that have to navigate a cluttered and dynamic environment, without bumping off cyclists and running over old people trying to cross a village road.  

There are also other more entertaining uses for it, such as the creation of bed-time stories for your grand children.  (Yup, I'm that old.  I started learning programming FORTRAN on a Univac with punch cards, eh.  Now get of my pennisetum clandestinum... :).

Let the fun begin: 

Write a short story for ten year olds. Scary government people created a video of a moon landing and will catch you if you deny it.

NASA Artemis Moon Shot

Give the protagonist two buddies with distinctly different personalities.


Once upon a time, there was a young boy named Jack who loved watching the stars at night. He dreamed of one day becoming an astronaut and exploring the moon.
One day, Jack's teacher showed the class a video of a moon landing. It showed a group of astronauts walking on the moon's surface and collecting rocks and samples.
But Jack had his doubts. He didn't believe that the moon landing was real. He tried to tell his classmates, but they all thought he was crazy.
Luckily, Jack had two friends who believed him. One was a shy and timid girl named Alice, who was always afraid to speak up. The other was a bold and brave boy named Max, who was always ready for adventure.
Together, they decided to investigate the moon landing and find out the truth. They went to the library and did some research, and they discovered that the video was actually a cleverly made fake and that the government had been lying to the public for years.
They also learned that many people who questioned the moon landing had disappeared without a trace. They knew they had to be careful, or the government might catch them too.
Jack, Alice, and Max came up with a plan to expose the truth to the world. They made their own video and posted it online, showing the evidence of the fake moon landing.
The government was furious, but they couldn't stop the truth from spreading. Soon, the whole world knew that the moon landing was a hoax.
Jack, Alice, and Max were heroes for standing up for the truth, even though it was scary. And they all lived happily ever after.

Given the distinct lack of effort required to specify the story line, the result is quite entertaining and if the rug rats are not sleeping yet, then you can generate another one in seconds!

La Voila!



  1. I half expected the ending will be like German bedtime stories where the protagonist dies and the kids cry to sleep :P

Parasitic Quadrifilar Helical Antenna

This article was reprinted in OSCAR News, March 2018: If you want to receive Satellite Weather Pictures , then you need a decent antenna, otherwise you will receive more noise than picture. For polar orbit satellites, one needs an antenna with a mushroom shaped radiation pattern .  It needs to have strong gain towards the horizon where the satellites are distant, less gain upwards where they are close and as little as possible downwards, which would be wasted and a source of noise.  Most satellites are spin stabilized and therefore the antenna also needs circular polarization, otherwise the received signal will flutter as the antennas rotate through nulls. The helical antenna, first proposed by Kraus in 1948, is the natural solution to circular polarized satellite communications.  It is a simple twisted wire - there seems to be nothing to it.  Various papers have been published on helix antennas, so the operation is pretty well understood. Therefore,

Weather Satellite Turnstile Antennas for the 2 meter Band

NEC2, 2 m band, 146 MHz, Yagi Turnstile Simulation and Build This article describes a Turnstile Antenna for the 2 meter band, 146 MHz amateur satcom, 137 MHz NOAA and Russian Meteor weather satellites.  Weather satellite reception is described here .  A quadrifilar helical antenna is described here .   Engineering, is the art of making what you need,  from what you can get. Radiation Pattern of the Three Element Yagi-Uda Antenna Once one combine and cross two Yagis, the pattern becomes distinctly twisted. The right hand polarization actually becomes visible in the radiation pattern plot, which I found really cool. Radiation Pattern of Six Element Turnstile Antenna Only a true RF Geek can appreciate the twisted invisible inner beauty of a herring bone antenna... Six Element Turnstile Antenna Essentially, it is three crosses on a stick.  The driven elements are broken in the middle at the drive points.  The other elements can go straight throug

To C or not to C, That is the Question

As most would know, the Kernighan and Ritchie C Programming Language is an improved version of B, which is a simplified version of BCPL, which is derived from ALGOL, which is the Ur computer language that started the whole madness, when Adam needed an operating system for his Abacus, to count Eve's apples in the garden of Eden in Iraq.  The result is that C is my favourite, most hated computer language , which I use for everything. At university, I learned FORTRAN with punch cards on a Sperry-Univac, in order to run SPICE, to simulate an operational amplifier.  Computers rapidly lost their glamour after that era! Nobody taught me C.  I bought the book and figured it out myself. Over time, I wrote a couple of assemblers, a linker-locator, various low level debuggers and schedulers and I even fixed a bug in a C compiler - not because I wanted to, but because I had to, to get the job done!   Much of my software work was down in the weeds with DSP and radio modems ( Synchronization,
