Re: G5RV Replacement

Ken Koch WA7KK
 

It turns out I spent the $6 (or so) on the Square Trade warranty on the G5RV.  I don't normally do that (and I forgot about it), but in this case I guess it was a reasonable idea.  Anyway, I think they will replace the G5RV.  I suppose it is worth giving it one more try since it worked reasonably well for me.  I am also a little limited in the space between the tress, so I don't think I have 135 feet.

The Buckmaster OCF dipole is 135 ft long but requires a messenger cable for support.  It allows hanging with some "slack" to allow for wind and removing a lot of stress from the wire. It covers 80/75, 40, 20, 17, 12, 10 and 6.

Reminder all.

You don't want to miss this opportunity of possibly changing how we do things.  Most instructors last year were not happy with the slide deck, so now is our chance to change what we do. 

This is for the new and experienced folks in the club.  Come help us make things better.

See you Thursday, January 16 at 6:30 at the Fire Station.

Weekly net report 1/9/2020

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

We had a very nice weekly 8pm net this evening.

The following SNOVARC hams checked in:

W7ECK Ken in Duvall
W7ABD Jim in Duvall
K7RWB Roland in Lake Joy
KJ7GIE Ryan in Carnation
WA1HEM Howard in Duvall
K7KDW Kirt in Monroe
KC7QXD Ralph in Duvall
AA7Z Dick in Lake Marcel

Jim reported the following hams checked in via Winlink:

K7RWB Rowland
W7ABD Jim
W7ECK Ken

And two visitors checked in:

KJ7ALM Keith in Renton Highlands, it’s so nice we’re hearing him check in so regularly.
KJ7QWZ Jason in Kingston, who did a great job and was persistent and patient to get checked in from Kingston.

As net control this evening I appreciated the help from Ralph KC7QXD in using reverse as we tried to hear Jason when he was struggling to get into the repeater. Neither Ralph nor I could hear him on reverse (of course) but I think it’s important to do everything we can to help everyone get checked in when their signal into the repeater is marginal. It’s great practice for a time when we might really need to make that QSO work and conditions are not in our favor.

And on that note, after the net Ralph caught me just before I went QRT to tell me about a feature I didn’t know about on my radio, which I was pretty sure I knew front to back, where the radio can automatically indicate that it can hear a signal on the input frequency of the repeater. It’s alway nice to learn something new about your gear!

I had a great chat with Jason after the net. He was checking in using the slot cube antenna he’d built from the design that was written up in QST just recently. Jason was excited to hear about the morning round table on our 441.825 Cougar repeater, so I’m hoping we’ll be hearing Jason regularly in the future. If you check out Jason’s QRZ page you can see photos of the slot cube antenna.

Thanks to everyone who participated!

Comment - I have the btech version of this radio minus Bluetooth, and it's the best ht dmr radio out there that I've seen. Works great. If anyone wants to play DMR especially with a hotspot this is a good choice.

I like these EFHW antennas


https://myantennas.com/

Built like tanks and no tuner required for normal bands. WARC bands with tuner, but a built in rig tuner can cover it because the swr isn't crazy.

I use them on 75 and 160. For 160 I run it as an inverted L

I think you will find the buckmaster's far exceed the quality of the typical G5RV.

I have an optimized G5RV that I cannot use due to the HOA where I now live. It was up two years in carnation but is in good condition. More details of you are interested Dan. KA7GPP.

Items from the 1-2-2020 meeting.

Hello everyone. Happy New Year again.

I wanted to pass on some information for those who couldn't attend the meeting, and some reminders for those who were in attendance.

1. Howard, WA1HEM, has taken over the position of secretary so Robin can concentrate on family matters. Thank you Robin for your excellent work.

2. If you or someone you know is interested in running for president, please e-mail or snail mail your nominations to Lindy. Her e-mail is lindyforbarclays@.... The snail mail address is Box 644, Carnation, WA 98014. Remember, if you nominate someone, the person nominated has to accept the nomination. I was nominated, and accepted the nomination to run for president. Lindy must have your nominations by 5:00 PM, January 25, 2020. You must be present at the business meeting to cast your vote.

I am looking forward to an excellent year for SNOVARC. Hope to see all of you at the next meeting.

73,

Tom, WA7TBP
