How do cats act when they are about to give birth?
As an owner of a female cat who has had 7 liters of kittens, I consider myself an expert with respect to your question.
First thing you need to do is to get a box that is big enough for both, your cat and the kittens. (at leas 18 inches wide and 24 inches long by 8 inches deep.)
Second, place a towel in the bottom of the box.
Third, place the box where you need it to be - preferably in an out of the way place where your cat can get to it as well as food, water and her liter box when she needs to.
Fourth, Take her to the box and sit her just outside of it. (Don't put her in it.) Show her the box - and maybe put a little cat-nip in the box, but it has to be her idea to get in it and feel comfortable. When it's time, she'll begin looking for a suitable place to give birth. The plan is to get her to use the box and not deliver under the living room couch.
When she gets in the box, stroke her and speak to her in a calm voice. Let her know that it is OK to be in the box. She'll get to like the box and will probably sleep in it the night before having her kittens - to show it is now her territory.
If she has the kittens outside of the box, wait a couple of hours after she gives birth and take all of the kittens to the box. She'll follow.

DW505 type 3: What is the resistance specification for armature opposing pole pairs? Also, isn't each pair supposed to be isolated from the other?
Measuring across the commutator opposites is a rough check - if each pair has the same resistance it is probably good but even then there are no guarantees. I have never seen the armature resistance stated for any motor though that doesn't mean such figures don't exist.
It would seem logical that each pair should be isolated but that generally is not how the armature is wired and each commutator segment is the termination of two coils.
In reality there is only three ways to test an armature - either build it into a motor and see if it performs ok, use an automated motor fault analysis machine or one of the dedicated armature testers such as an armature growler.

Need a schematic for a victrola radio model vta 750
The fashion for nostalgia radio with a modern sound has brought about a clutch of models from only a few manufacturers.
I have only encountered one such that was basically an in-house cabinet with bought in internals, the quality of which was probably reflected in the price and as this was from the lower price bracket the internals were from different sources and badly matched.
I know of no reason to assume other models would be substantially different because although popular they haven't sold in the high numbers that would justify purpose built internals and so the chances are an experienced audio engineer would probably recognise the circuit board as being from a popular hi-fi and be able to provide you with details.

These radios are great but why put talkback on a radio when itll only work on am..we use fm mainly in the uk..is there anyway of modding it so itll work on fm please
The short answer is no -- the difference between AM and FM is too great though some CB radios were made dual mode, like the President Veep I used to own.
Some CBs that found the way into Britain were powerful sidebanders that offered similar capabilities to unlicensed CB-ers to that official radio hams had to sit exams to enjoy. Some radio hams found it cheaper to have those top-line CBs modified for use on the 11 metre amateur band.
It would be no help to you to obtain a standard FM CB as when the UK was forced to legalise CB radio under the Treaty of Rome, they legalised it at a different frequency as the American frequency was already allocated to radio control, bleepers and other things. Special CB sets were manufactured for the UK market.

Motorola D700 (Ex Dolphin Tetra) Radio
HI.... yes ....it is possible to program them in DMO, this is done in the RSS,.... so I am advised directly from inside Motorola .... but a copy of the RSS is just not available.... ... if fact Motorola seems to officially deny the D700 ever existed ... good luck in finding a solution.
