An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)

An Officer and a Gentleman (1982) More at IMDbPro »
 Directed by Taylor Hackford. With Richard Gere, Debra Winger, David Keith

Zack Mayo is a young man who has signed up for Navy Flight School. He is a Navy brat who has a bad attitude problem. Sgt. Foley is there to train and evaluate him and will clearly find Zack wanting. Zack meets Paula, a girl who has little beyond family and must decide what it is he wants to do with his life. Written by John Vogel {jlvogel@comcast.net} 

Zack Mayo is a loner who has never had to rely on anyone but himself. As a child, he was sent to live with his father, a career Navy man based in the Philippines, after his mother commits suicide. There he soon realized that he had to be tough and rely on no one. After graduating from college, he shocks his father by telling that he has enlisted in the Navy and will enter training as a naval aviator. There he brings the same loner attitude he has had all of his life. He does however meet Paula, an attractive young woman who often attends base functions in the hope of nabbing a young officer and Sid Worley, a classmate with whom he forms a close bond. The training is difficult but not as tough as having to deal with their training officer, Gunnery Sergeant Emil Foley who teaches Zack a lesson in the importance of relying on your friends and colleagues.

nota: ini filem amat popular kerana budaya dan jalan cerita dia ada lebih kurang dengan kehidupan di kedet terutama masa mess nite. jadi untuk menontonnya kena pergi pawagam sebab mana ada vcd dsn.

makanan segera ini amat popular dikantin kedet. ianya siap dibungkus dengan kertas tisu warna merah. biasanya burger ini dijual pada waktu malam lepas prep. burger ini juga baru popular sekitar pada tahun 70an dan awal 80an.

ini vespa tahun 70an. masa kedet ramai staf awam dan tentera menggunakannya. malah vespa ini selalu diberi pinjam kepada kedet tapi biasanya digunakan dalam kem sahaja.

sasaran ku langit

inilah lambang atau pun logo masa di kota belud kursus taktik di SEKPUR sekolah tempur pegawai muda STPM. sasaran ku langit ada lagu dia dan jadi lagu wajib dimana saja. masa dikursus ini kita kaya dengan lagu-lagu semangat kerana komandan sendiri pun amat prihatin bagi menentukan siswa dapat menyanyikannya siap kena beli kaset lagi. tapi lagu itu sudah lupa juga. kat logo tersebut ada serangkaian "snap link" dan benet. ini sesuailah dengan tempat kita orang training yang banyak ada parang/pisau bajau. lepas itu bila kita habis traning ramailah pegawai yang menggayakan benda ini apabila pakai celoreng

racal tra 906

The Racal "Squadcal" units I have are xtal controlled 2 to 7Mhz AM CW USB on something like 29 channels, with a single xtal per channel. The case is injection molded plastic, with a battery compartment for 3ea 6 Volt lantern type batteries. All circuitry is on a single PC board. Construction quality is about the same as found on mid 1970's marine radios, Glass-epoxy PC board, no plugins. There are no sealed modules or exotic integrated circuits. Definitely a bargain basement type of radio design, but not flimsy.
Reported to have been originally designed and built in Australia by Racal Australia, the following is taken from their promotional literature.

Ops 2-7mc on any of 29 xtal control channels with unlimited spacings. Modes include AME/SSB/CW, with an RF output power of 5 watts PEP/CW. Primarily designed for backpack operation with the standard MA 948 nicad battery, other battery options included an adapter for the use of 14 "D" cells, or alternately 3ea 6v lantern type batteries. Power could also be supplied by optional equipment from AC mains or a DC vehicle source. Features and controls include, a built in antenna tuner for use of a top mounted whip antenna, or 50 ohm output connections. A Clarifier control for fine tuning SSB or CW pitch. And an RF gain control, strangely, there's no volume control. The radio is also said to be completely seal, dust and water tight.
For a radio set of the 60's-70's, the Squadcal would offer some features that would appeal to the purchaser of equipment for a POOR and BACKWARD country. These would include it's simple operation and construction. The discrete component, single board design would allow for a minimum of logistics problems, and simple servicing, similar to a CB radio. However a more skilled technician would be required and field servicing would be impossible. As we know that Iraq was neither Poor, nor Backward, and they had no skilled technicians. Again a common fact remains, It Was Cheap!

radio set ini digunakan bila mengadakan latihan hutan terutama final exercise. masa itu radio ini dibawa siap dengan anak gajah dimasuk dalam pack. apa yang berlaku komunikasi tidak pernah dapat. cuma penat pikul sajalah.
