Hi,

I had a short dialog with someone about a Kenwood UHF/VHF mobile that had the capability to be a cross band repeater. Unfortunately, I did not save the email and now have some questions after thinking about it some.

Please contact me directly...

Pop-up meeting, last minute.  If you have any interest in serving as a VE (Volunteer Examiner) at the testing in April, please do three things:

  • Mark your calendar for this coming Tuesday, February 25th.  Join me at the Duvall Fire Station to review the requirements to become a VE (let me know you're coming please).
  • If possible, prior to the meeting review the VE manual here:   http://www.arrl.org/files/file/VEs/VE%20Manual%20Web%20FINAL%202014.pdf
  • Let me know you'd like to take the VE Refresher course, taught by Dave Wickert, scheduled for Tuesday, March 3rd at 5:30 also at the Fire Station.  You do not need to be a current VE to take this class with Dave.  Per Dave:  The Seminar is designed for an existing VE seeking to understand the latest issues such as the proper handling of the new “felony question”, lifetime exam credit, etc. Included in the seminar is an extensive practicum — learn how to solve just about every exam problem under the sun. While this version of the Seminar is being taught as a refresher, it is perfectly OK that a ham thinking of becoming a VE also attend. We strongly recommend that you at least read the VE Manual (http://www.arrl.org/files/file/VEs/VE%20Manual%20Web%20FINAL%202014.pdf) prior to the Seminar as we will assume a basic understanding of the exam process. You can even start the process by completing your open-book exam paperwork 😊  Or bring it with you and ask the group help you with the questions! Open-book means open-book 😊
If you are already an experienced VE and would like to facilitate on the 25th, let me know.  Otherwise, we will be like the blind leading the blind.

Hi, Irvina!

Oops, somehow my email got sent before I was finished!  I just got my VE certificate last year, but since I've never actually used it, I think a refresher with practical info would be helpful.  Also, I would be available to help as a VE in April if needed.  I just have a general, so can only be a VE for Technician exams.

We strongly recommend that you at least read the VE Manual (http://www.arrl.org/files/file/VEs/VE%20Manual%20Web%20FINAL%202014.pdf) prior to the Seminar as we will assume a basic understanding of the exam process. You can even start the process by completing your open-book exam paperwork 😊  Or bring it with you and ask the group help you with the questions! Open-book means open-book 😊
If you are already an experienced VE and would like to facilitate on the 25th, let me know.  Otherwise, we will be like the blind leading the blind.

Thanks.

Irvina

VE Class, Refresher Course, and Instructor Needed

Irvina Mizell
 

Pop-up meeting, last minute.  If you have any interest in serving as a VE (Volunteer Examiner) at the testing in April, please do three things:

  • Mark your calendar for this coming Tuesday, February 25th.  Join me at the Duvall Fire Station to review the requirements to become a VE (let me know you're coming please).
  • If possible, prior to the meeting review the VE manual here:   http://www.arrl.org/files/file/VEs/VE%20Manual%20Web%20FINAL%202014.pdf
  • Let me know you'd like to take the VE Refresher course, taught by Dave Wickert, scheduled for Tuesday, March 3rd at 5:30 also at the Fire Station.  You do not need to be a current VE to take this class with Dave.  Per Dave:  The Seminar is designed for an existing VE seeking to understand the latest issues such as the proper handling of the new “felony question”, lifetime exam credit, etc. Included in the seminar is an extensive practicum — learn how to solve just about every exam problem under the sun. While this version of the Seminar is being taught as a refresher, it is perfectly OK that a ham thinking of becoming a VE also attend. We strongly recommend that you at least read the VE Manual (http://www.arrl.org/files/file/VEs/VE%20Manual%20Web%20FINAL%202014.pdf) prior to the Seminar as we will assume a basic understanding of the exam process. You can even start the process by completing your open-book exam paperwork 😊  Or bring it with you and ask the group help you with the questions! Open-book means open-book 😊
If you are already an experienced VE and would like to facilitate on the 25th, let me know.  Otherwise, we will be like the blind leading the blind.

Thanks.

Third Thursday mini exercise

Tom WA7TBP
 

Hello all. Since tomorrow is the third Thursday, I will be conducting a station component failure exercise. We will simulate loss of commercial power, antenna failure, and rig failure. I will explain the details after the regular net is closed. 

Looking forward to hearing you, learning some things, and having some fun.

Tom, WA7TBP

This is the kit I ordered from Amazon.  I have tested them and with the right heat gun they work every time.
