Subject: [SnoVARC] Help Raising Dipole (North Bend)

 

If anyone is available and doesn't mind coming clear out to North Bend I could use 1 or (preferably) 2 people to help me raise my new dipole antenna.  The previous one came apart. 

Hopefully this won't take too long.  The tree sides are up with ropes through pulley.  I just need some help manipulating the antenna to get around branches while it is being pulled up.  As far as I know I have everything I need, but this is at least a 2 person job.

I am available most weekdays and weekends.  Hopefully we can avoid any extra hot days.

Amazing HF Antenna

Rowland
 

Hi All,

Just wanted to tell you the wonderful success I had with a very simple end fed half wave antenna transformer (as titled by mfg). It is called the TennTennas and I bought it on Ebay for $40 plus shipping.  It is a simple wire wound choke 49:1 mounted in a black box with connectors for a wire and ground and for PL250 coax connection. It is recommended by the gentleman who builds these to use 50' of coax and 65' of wire.  I got it up on a tree at about 40' for the box and then another tree for the wire.  I made well over 100 contacts without much effort.  This was on several different bands (20, 40, 80) without the need for a tuner.

This antenna would be great for Field Day, homes that have antenna restrictions or limited space available, SOTA, POTA  and so on.  Very compact.

All I can say is it worked great wil very little effort.


Thanks,

Rowland

Nice! Two opposite locations, temps and altitudes between you and Rowland.  Very cool (no pun intended)

Bluff overlooking Sound to west of lighthouse. Cool breezes meant no heat or suffering. Had a marvelous time. Answered a lot of questions from passersby. 20m only,  mostly CW, solar blankets kept radio battery 100% charged and solar charger kept cell phone charged. Had to stow gear and lock car for every hike to bio break but it wasn't a big deal. Kx3 to kpa100, 60w to Tarheel. Worked every corner of US and Alaska, Virgin Islands.

Hoping to snag a Fort Warden parking spot tomorrow overlooking water with antenna view to North and East. Planning 20m all day, too hot to bother with band changes.

Re: New net control script

Thanks Paul for updating this. 

Your updates have also been pushed to the version on the web site. http://snovarc.org/events/nets/script/

New net control script

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

We have a new version of the net control script which has been changed to use the Carnation repeater/Big Rock Crossband as the backup repeater system instead of the Myers repeater/Carnation crossband system.

The new script has been uploaded to the files section on the snovarc groups.io site and is attached.

As I will be up in the mountains for field day can someone please take over my net control responsibilities for the 24th?

Thank you,

5 Reasons To Attend August 14-15 QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo

To: Rowland Brasch <rowland.brasch@...>


​Dear Rowland,


Our third and next QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo is scheduled Live from August 14-15, 2021 and then on-demand for 30 days.  We promise a flawless, great learning experience for those seeking to improve their knowledge and to be exposed to new ideas, equipment, and practical techniques – all done in a highly engaging format on the vFairs platform that we used in our first August 2020 Expo.  No need to travel - participate from your home or office!  Information can be found at https://www.qsotodayhamexpo.com.  Here are 5 reasons why you must attend:

  1. Listen, engage with 80+ internationally recognized ham radio luminaries.  Our speakers are experts with deep knowledge of their presentations.  Most importantly, they’ve worked hard to make sure that you’ll understand their material and can apply it immediately to your projects.  

  2. So, so many different topics - everybody will find something of high value.  There’s content for everyone whether you are a newly licensed ham looking for next steps to using that license or a 30+ year experienced ham looking for new projects.  Topics include (sample list):  Emergency Services; Antennas; HF operation; contesting; DXpeditions; Ham radio on a budget; Satellite communication; VHF and above; Digital Modes; QRP; Homebrewing; Field, Mobile and portable operation; Software Defined Radio;  Test equipment and repair; and Youth Presentations! 

  3. Watch as many presentations as you want!  A big limitation of in-person events is that you can’t watch many of the presentations (you can only be in one room at a time).  At the Expo, return anytime within 30 days to listen to any Live speakers you missed as well as explore exhibitor offerings.  At our last Expo, our 7,500 attendees downloaded 100,000 presentations.

  4. Take advantage of our calendar technology to efficiently organize your time.  You’ll be able to download speaker times in your local time zone directly to your Google or Outlook calendar.  You’ll then have a complete schedule of sessions to join to maximize your time during the Live period with speakers that are the most important.

  5. Check out our live round table video for attendees to interact with each other and exhibitors.  Already integrated into the Expo platform is proven technology for you to participate in live video lounges to interact with exhibitors and fellow amateur operators.  You’ll find this is a great way to meet up with friends, talk to vendors, and network on specific subject areas.

ARRL, the national association for Amateur Radio®, is a QSO Today Virtual Ham Expo Partner.  FlexRadio is the Expo’s Platinum Sponsor.  Gold sponsors as of this time are Elecraft and RFinder.


Registration begins on July 1st, 2021. Full registration Early Bird Tickets are just $10 and then $12.50 “at the door”.  Full registration includes access to the entire Expo including presentations and the 30 day on-demand period. Free registration includes access to exhibitors, prizes, general lounge and lobbies. If you were registered to the March Expo, then you already have a free registration to the August Expo. 


For more information and Expo Updates, go to https://www.qsotodayhamexpo.com

Make sure to put the dates (August 14-15,2021) on your calendar!

Re: Battery backup at Costco. Worth it?

You can charge that device with any 12 volt input to the PowerPole connector.
