Re: ISS SSTV on the air

John Beatty
 

Not entirely sure Bill.  I will see if I can find out.  I’m guessing they are “off” shift at that time and won’t be operating.

The link shows times that are confusing... What does the "Off" there mean?

Dec 5: On - 11:25 UTC, Off - 17:15 UTC
Dec 6: On - 10:20 UTC, Off - 16:40 UTC
  

 

Thanks,

bill N0AXZ

First Ham Nation tower safety episode

Fred Dittrich
 

Hi

See: https://twit.tv/shows/ham-nation/episodes/431?autostart=false

This first tower safety episode frames the issue, statistically comparing it to commercial cell tower safety and skydiving safety issues. More details next episode.

Re: NanoVNA

Chris Swisher
 

This presentation was posted in the Facebook group for the NanoVNA. It does a great job of explaining the abilities and limitations on using the device evaluating common mode chokes as well.

Thanks for bird dogging this. I am happy with my AA-600 but at this almost pocket change price, I think anyone who has any question about what their antenna is doing and wants to know RIGHT NOW, this looks like a must to have in the shack.

I couldn't stand it any longer, and ordered one of these for evaluation. It now is capable of 50 kHz to 1.5 gHz and supports time domain reflectometry, and talks to a Windows 10 or iOS laptop over the USB. Anyone else playing?

Re: Thanksgiving

Corey I am also thankful for the many friends I would never have met without ham radio, CMRA and BCARES. Too many SK's gone but not forgotten!

Also want to take the time to remember those club members who are now SK.

BCARES and CMRA:

While I was at Gateway Electronics, at the Chesterfield Mall, I made the acquaintance with Mike Harmon (WB0LDJ), a former HAM from Boone County. He said to say "Hi" to his long-time friends here in Columbia, like Corey(KC0YNS), Bill(N0AXZ), John(NO0I), and Roy(AA0B).

Mike's email address is: mharmon@att.net

So, consider his greetings duly passed along.

Ham Community of Columbia,

Susan and I were in St. Louis for a concert at the Fox Theater, so I took advantage of checking out the new location of Gateway Electronics. Their location is Store #140 in the Chesterfield Mall. It is now about 25 minutes closer to those of us in Columbia, MO, than it was at it's old location. The Chesterfield Mall is dying, so I don't know how long they will make it.

I am in the process of building a small amplifier for my UltraPicoKeyer. I have all parts ordered from eBay, but some of the parts won't arrive until January of next year, so stay tuned.

Ham Community of Columbia,

Susan and I were in St. Louis for a concert at the Fox Theater, so I took advantage of checking out the new location of Gateway Electronics. Their location is Store #140 in the Chesterfield Mall. It is now about 25 minutes closer to those of us in Columbia, MO, than it was at it's old location. The Chesterfield Mall is dying, so I don't know how long they will make it.

I am in the process of building a small amplifier for my UltraPicoKeyer. I have all parts ordered from eBay, but some of the parts won't arrive until January of next year, so stay tuned.

December Christmas Plans

AD0UK
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

   This year for the Christmas party there was a vote of the members present at the October meeting and HyVee was not chosen as the place of our festivities.  This year we attempted to find another place - Pam so kindly called around for us and the only place we could find on short notice was Olive Garden on Dec 10 @7 pm.  We will be ordering off the men, there is no room fee and we have a section for up to 50 people - we are supposed to be the only ones in that section.  Please be aware of this change in the Party and hope those who can make it will come out.  It has also been put on the agenda to discuss this at future meetings, earlier than we did this year and decide where we want to go next year, and start making arrangements earlier next year.
