What Mobile HF Antenna Do You Like?

What Mobile HF Antenna Do You Like?

Since I now have my General I will be researching HF antennas for the van.  I would like to get one that is a multiband unit with a motor drive system.  As I need to park in parking garages a lot I want to have the means of remotely lowering the antenna when needed. 

Please give all your feedback on what you like.

Thanks,
Rowland

Selling Yaesu VX 6

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

Yaesu HT VX-6R
HRO's and Universal Radio's current price is $249.95
Used only 5 to 10 times. Includes programming software
Sell for $175.00
I found I am more comfortable with Icom radios.

The Yaesu VX-6R is a triple band (2M, 220 & 440 MHz) HT with extensive
receive coverage. It is both submersible (JIS7: 30 minutes of
submersion at depth of 3 feet) and extremely rugged. The VX-6R
provides wide receiver coverage at 504 kHz ~ 998.99 MHz (cellular
blocked), and puts out 5 Watts of power on the 144 and 430 MHz bands
and 1.5 W on 222 MHz. The standard memory has 900 channels with
6-digit alpha numeric tag, and 24 memory banks for channel allocation.

The VX-6R compact package measures just 2.3 x 3.5 x 1.1 inches WHD and
weighs only 9.45 oz (with battery and antenna). The Volume and Squelch
knobs are oversized, for easy operation even when wearing gloves.
Other features include: black magnesium case, 900 memories, severe
weather alert, and multicolor transmit/receive LED.

If interested contact Mel (N7GCO) at leadcoach@verizon.net.
I will put it on Eham next week.

Carnation Saftey Fair

Jerry NA7Z <GJRCK@...>
 

Can anyone help Rick out on this. His e-mail is n6nr@arrl.net

I could use some help at Carnation Safety Fair.  I might be able to
handle Com 80 [comm van] by myself, but it would be wonderful if we
could get a few folks to help out, especially with the Carnation CERT
folks and SVARC members. Let me know if you are interested.  The
Carnation Safety Fair is at STA 85 in Carnation from 1000 to 1400 hours
on Saturday, May 10th.

Duvall Days 2008 – Radio Amateurs needed!

June 6th – 7th

The City of Duvall has requested the Snoqualmie Valley Amateur Radio Club to provide communications for the 2008 Duvall Days Fun Run, as well as coordination on setup and takedown of the vendor area in McCormick Park.  According to Doreen Booth, Duvall's Economic Development Director, "phones and handheld radios have proven problematic, as has been having civilians try to communicate on radios. So we could use trained radio operators."

As Chair of the Education Outreach Committee of SnoVARC, I have committed (well, I knew you would back me up) at least enough radio operators to serve as course marshals for the Saturday morning 10K Fun Run, approximately 8-10 am, and as Monitors along the Snoqualmie Valley Trail (SVT) that morning to keep runners and vendor representatives sorted out, approximately 6-9 am.  For these two groups, we will need 13-15 volunteers.  Additionally, the City could use 5 radio operators to assist with traffic on the SVT during vendor setup – Friday night, June 6th, from 4-7 pm, and also at takedown on Saturday night from 5-7 pm.  As these times do not conflict with the requirement for Fun Run course marshals, it is possible for you to handle both a Fun Run and a Vendor Coordination assignment.

OK, guys, I need bodies, and I need commitments by our next club meeting on Thursday, April 3rd.  If you can help out with this community event, please respond to my email address by April 3rd, or let me know at the April SnoVARC meeting.  Aside from the obvious fact that our club would provide a needed – and requested - community service, we will help out our own Carnation-Duvall Citizen Corps since part of the proceeds from the Fun Run will be donated to the CERT program.

Here are the volunteer opportunities – please let me know your preferred "slot" or if you are flexible as to assignment. 

10K Course Marshall

SVT Monitor

Vendor Takedown

Sat 6/7 (8-10 am)

Fri 6/6 (4-7 pm)

Thank you for your support for our club and for our community.  As Winston Churchill once said, "You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give."

WA State Repeaters List

Mel N7GCO <leadcoach@...>
 

I was programming a new hand-held and wanted to update my repeater
list. Jerry helped me out by providing his, which had some good ideas.
Before the club I had not used 440, so Jerry's list got me started.

Well before I finished, I had developed a rather complete list and
reprogrammed all my VHF/UHF radios. I have uploaded it to the file
sections. Maybe it will save people some time.
