Re: [GRP] Columbia Accident Investig'n Board Final Report -

Section 31: 14:27-20:33 - something is wrong with the audio quality here. It's very distorted and needs to be re-recorded. The rest of the recording is PL OK. I didn't try to listen to the above portion. Ok, I re-recorded it and here is the new version https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/finalrepo...

Section 31 is uploaded. https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/finalreport1_31_caib_128kb.mp3 00:31:36 I am willing to do another section, fully expecting to take 2 months to complete it. i would prefer section 9, it is shorter, and the vocabulary is not a problem for me. As noted in comments, i will ...

Re: [GRP] Columbia Accident Investig'n Board Final Report -

Section 30 uploaded for proof listening https://librivox.org/uploads/triciag/finalreport1_30_caib_128kb.mp3 35:00 I suspect my next section (31) will also take 2 months. If you had someone that could crank it out faster, i would defer to them, but since there are still open sections, i assume that t...

Re: ~[GRP] Columbia Accident Investig'n Board Final Report -

For volume leveling i use Auphonic, because my volume and distance to the microphone varies greatly within a recording. Auphonic.com offer 2 hours free per month. 2 hours was enough for me, but the hassle of uploading and downloading wasn't worth it after i got hooked on it, so i bought the desktop ...

No audio can match the acoustics that arrive at a distance, long after you see the visual of it leaving the ground. :D

Re: ~[GRP] Columbia Accident Investig'n Board Final Report -

Hi, I would like to sign up for sections 30 and 31. That seems like the limit of what I should sign up for at this time. I was pretty involved with this, let me know if I can help with any terminology, acronyms, or pronunciation.

This was a nice treat to discover on Monday morning! Thank you both! Just so you know: Next week I will be on a cruise ship for a week to escape from work and the Internet. (But I will have a variety of recorded books with me to complete my escape!) If any aviation questions come up you may want to ...

Hi Norm. The corrected version of Section 63 is up [16:19] at: https://librivox.org/uploads/rapunzelina/pilotshandbook_63_faa_128kb.mp3 I guess I was confused about the medical applications. I thought hyperbaric medicine was related to treating problems like the bends by subjecting the body to high...

Re: [Group] Pilot's Handbook FAA-8083-25A - rap

Section 63 has opened up. That is Chapter 16 part 4 which starts with Altitude Induced Decompression Sickness. I will leave it here for a few days if an existing reader would like to volunteer, before opening it up on Readers Wanted. Just so you know, the previous volunteer for this section let me k...
