Clean v Dirtys. W


How are these power types different?


hen seen on an oscilloscope, “clean” AC power has a nice smooth sinusoidal wave form. A variety of devices, includ- ing generators, computers, and fl uorescent light ballast, can create harmonic distortion, which is seen on an oscilloscope


as spikes and rough edges in the wave form. These harmonics can combine and create signifi cant problems for sensitive electronic devices like large screen fl at panel televisions, computers, and appliances. Low cost, simple generators can create total harmonic distortion between 10 to 20 percent, which can cause signifi cant problems to electronic devices and home appliances. Inverter-style generators fi rst invert the power to DC voltage, then back to clean, smooth AC power. These generators typically cost more because of the extra components involved, but are much less likely to cause problems with your home electronics. When purchasing a generator to power your home, you want to look for a generator that creates less than 5 percent THD (total harmonic distortion).

What happened to Gene Pendegraft?


ene Pendegraft let the show go on after a diamondback rattlesnake struck him on the leg. According the the story author, Pendegraft declined going to the doctor for medi- cal attention. The team was fortunate there were not ex-


tenuating circumstances affecting Pendegraft such as very high heat, excitement, great exertion or previous medical conditions.


Did you know 32 known species of rattlesnakes are native only to the Americas? If you have an interest in learning more, slither over to Okeene, Mangum, Apache, Waynoka and Waurika for rattlesnake hunts and festivals.








7,000 to 8,000 bites each year in the U.S.


10,000 to 15,000 spectators at the 2014 Okeene Rattlesnake Hunt
