Hello, I am not a ham radio operator but my father was at one time. He is in his late 90s now and my brother has been going thru our dad's basement here in Columbia . He found what looks like 2 old ham radios and a couple boxes of vacuum tubes etc. My guess is the radio is from the 50s/60s. 

What are my options with this equipment?  Is it worth trying to sell, (have no idea if it works) or just junk it? Would there be anybody in your org interested in looking at this radio? I have attached a pic of the radio to give you an idea what I got here. Can get better pics if needed.

Thanks for your time! -TJones

I would recommend that you get with Fred and make up the 450 ohm one as a good start.  You are welcome to my stash.

As an admitted noobie, you are in for "the ride" into the black art (almost) of antenna design.  Mostly we all start with cheap and simple and evolve into personal circumstances and needs.  You will find an abundance of expertise and help from the CMRA / BCARES group.  Online sources are also great.  Allow me to encourage you on.

Re: J-pole dimensions using 450-ohm window line resenting reply

William Johnson
 

Hello, Henry

My name is William KE0PKO, I am a new Ham and was talking with Fred at lunch about making my own antenna's and teaching my kids in the process.  I myself have been dealing with a lot of medical problems this year and can't afford to just go buy a starter antenna.  I live in the country and have the freedom of being able to build and toss up different type's of antenna's in the tree's or in the open from poles.  I would like to build a few different types of antenna and learn as we go.  I was wondering if I could get some of that 450-ohm line from you.  I would gladly come and meet you.

I did not receive it at my home where I send and receive texts and calls all day, 5 days a week, for my work but my wife's phone did receive it just fine.  There is an email address listed under FAQ #29 on this page https://www.fema.gov/emergency-alert-test# where you can provide specifics of your device, carrier, location, etc (they have a bulleted list of what info they want).  I sent my feedback last night.

Well, like Dave Phelps said, some phones will and some won't.  His did, his wife's did not.  My wife's did not and mine was turned off.  Her cellphone reception is spotty here at the house and mine is zero (hence always off unless out and about) and it might be as simple as that.  We were home at the time.

But it is great to see the nearly universal success of the system.  This round of emails has been very useful.  I presume (or hope) that FEMA has others means of surveying how well the alert worked nationwide.

Thanks to everyone.

Well Hank,
Since almost everyone else reports receiving the alert,  (I even got it down here in AR!) do you have any ideas why you did not? Like no cell service, uncooperative carrier??

We didn't get anything.  We wonder how many others failed?  If it's lots, that's an important fact.  Thanks, Bill, for suggesting we report in.

Group, FYI:

  The IPAWS National Test September 17, 2018 The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of the Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) on the backup date of October 3, 2018 due to ongoing response efforts to Hurricane Florence. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. EDT, and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. EDT. https://www.fema.gov/emergency-alert-test   

I think it would be interesting to get an informal poll here about this test. Did you get anything? Was the message clear? did your friends wonder what was going on? etc...
