Date   

KC0YNS Estate Sale

Bill McFarland - N0AXZ
 

Group,
The Estate is offering the sale of Corey's amateur radio equipment to the club members first on this coming Saturday, at 9:00 at his house. 

Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we are asking that you wear masks, and observe the one-wavelength at 144 Mhz distancing. We have not moved any equipment, so you will find it where Corey last used it, primarily in his shack/garage. This is not a big room, so we will restrict entry to 6  people at a time. Attached is a sheet showing many, but not all, of the things you will find there. With the help of K0PHP, there is an estimated value of each item given. These values are not totally firm, but we want to be fair to the estate. 
Not listed are the towers and antennas you will see outside. They are still in the air at this time, and disassembly has not yet been planned. 

Hope to see you there, Saturday 7/11/2020.

Re: CMRA Field Day (AA0B+NO0I)

Ralph Howard
 

My $0.02 worth.

I heard a lot of stations on the waterfall, but for some reason they didn't hear me.   I dunno.

I did not run QRP as things got all tied up when I wanted to get stuff ready for FD, well other things popped up. 

So I used my regular stations, on main power.  1D

Most were 35 watts on the TS-2000

To copy the ARRL bulletin I had to use the variable band width of the Kenwood.  Some LID was right next to the ARRL and he made it impossible to copy the ARRL.  Perhaps if I had turned off the AGC it would have worked.  But I just cut the bandwidth down to CW withes and he disappeared.  100 points.

I did send a message to the sections, but later read it was supposed to be a formal message.  Mine was not formal.  So that may be rejected.

Oh the message out was on Winlink.  A couple of years ago I asked about that.  My answer was if I entered the traffic by radio, and they picked it up by radio, it was a good message.


Regardless here is a few more points for the pile.

Way to go guys. Racking up some points. This COVID-19 Field Day gave many more people opportunities to play and make some QSOs and points. At Rock Bridge, we end up with the Preliminary Total score of 1088. 
For reference, on 2018 we turned in a total of 1856, and 2019 a score of 1630. 
I haven’t added up what I’ve seen come in from all, but it will be well over previous years. 
It isn’t a contest and we aren’t in it for the points, but it is fun to see many people making a contribution to the club’s points total. 
Watch for the DEC QST to see final results.

Way to go, Guys! 

I was one of those phone contacts. You all were Pretty loud from across town on 20m. 

I will be submitting my logs tonight. 
43 qso’s all phone running 40 watts. 

Heard Myron on 10m making a contact. Also heard Bill early in the afternoon on Saturday. It was fun heading everyone, even though we didn’t get to see each other this year.
