Dust off those Go-Kits and get out of the house.

 

Join us at Cosmo Park Saturday, March 27 at 1:30 PM for a Go-Kit day. Bring yours (all of them, or just one), power and antennae, (all of them, or just one) OR just come and see what others have prepared. Get ideas, and be inspired.

 

ALL CURRENT COVID-19 COLUMBIA/BOONE COUNTY GUIDELINES WILL BE FOLLOWED, WHICH WILL MEAN MASKS AND 1 Wavelength at 2M distancing will be observed.

 

For those who don’t yet feel like getting out, we will be relying on you to be by the radio, so we have someone to talk to on VHF/UHF bands, and repeaters. Monitor 146.76 for starters.

 

We will plan to be at the South West corner of Cosmos Park, Shelter - Harris parking lot. Daylight savings time will be on us, so we could stay for several hours, if we get that excited. Thinking about getting ready for Field Day 2021.

 

Anything close to bad weather will postpone this event.

Towers in Columbia city limits?

Tom Lindberg
 

I'm wondering what experiences you've all had getting towers put up within the city limits of Columbia.  At my old house in NE Columbia I just put things up without asking the city.  I built a W7VU style 30ft tilt-over mast that worked wonders.  Now I'm right in the middle of town in a valley (Bluffdale Drive, just off Old 63 near Broadway).  I want to do things the "right" way.  Luckily I have no HOA to worry about and my wife doesn't care.  I just need to do right by the city and for insurance.

I'd love to put up a freestanding foldover crankup mast or tower. US Towers MA-40 or MA-550 looks real attractive. That's the sort of thing I have in mind...

Any thoughts?  Experiences with getting permission from the city?  Thanks,

-- Tom N0YYW

Re: This is starting off good

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

And it appears to be starting off as a good guide for getting folks started in radio, but not necessarily a good ham resource. Seems to be a lot of advice about STARTING on setting up and operating GMRS/MURS types of setups, where channels are programmed and fixed, in order to get on the air and start learning behaviors before diving into hardware challenges.

This is starting off good

Gary Vaught - W9TIG
 

I've read the first section of the first installment of this article and it LOOKS like it's going to be very helpful for me - because it appears the author has an understanding of what holds most new hams back.  I expect this will continue on with helpful advice and information for "getting started" as well as how to help others get started.


This was in yesterday's blog posting, part 2 is out today.

Thanks John,

Re: Coffee with Elmers Feb 20th

Bill McFarland - N0AXZ
 

Well Chris, I believe the guys you mentioned are responsible for the transistor and stuff. But I don’t see them in my APRS data.

 But the guy who is responsible for our APRS seems to be an interesting figure. I met him (Bob Bruninga) at Dayton one year when he was proud of burning up a Prius in an attempt to use the big batteries for emergency power source. 
Any way see you Saturday morning.
