JOTA Cub Scout Rally event at Bass Pro, Saturday 20 Oct 2018, 12:00 noon - 5:00 pm

Tim Spurgeon
 

Brothers and Sisters:

I just heard back from Jim Wilson (Trustee K2BSA) that we have been authorized to use the "K2BSA/0" call sign for Jamboree on the Air, Saturday, during the Bass Pro Cub Scout Rally. This is Good News!

Thank you for those who have responded to my email, below. I know that I can speak for Brian Fowler (CMRA 2018 President) that this is a part of our never ending work to encourage young people to get excited about amateur radio. Thanks to all who are working on passing the torch. I will give a report following the event.

Brothers,

I need two kinds of help with the event this Saturday morning:

1) Stay at Home stations to be available on Columbia's 2 meter repeaters from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. This is an important job to get some of the shy cub scouts to talk. Here are some good questions to get the conversations going:
a. What is your favorite thing to do in Scouts?
b. What rank are you?
c. What is your troup/pack?
d. How long have you been a scout?
e. Do you know anyone who is an amateur radio operator?
f. Have you been to any camps this year?

Questions that will get the scouts to start to feel comfortable about talking on the air. They will pick it up quickly.

2) Help at Bass Pro (be there at 12:00 noon until ~ 5:00pm. If you show up, I will put you to work. Last year, we had a long line of parents and scouts. Getting each scout to sign in and then answering questions would be a big help.

Thanks for your help.

Tim, I'll be there to help about noon.  Will bring my 2 meter handheld.  Myron (W0ZH) possibly will come as well, last time I talked with him (this morning).

What frequency please,. I don't have the paperwork I picked up at the ares meeting I went to.   I'm in New Florence but I've been sick which is why I've been gone since my first trip to the ares meeting.  But I have my ht that I can check in from if you would like.  Just need the information for it.

Check-ins from our distant net participants would be appreciated.  (I am not too worried about guys here in town.)

This net will be conducted using a mobile radio but on the 147.000 repeater frequency (operating in reverse mode) so you can call like you normally would on the repeater.  However, you will not hear any courtesy tones nor will you be able to hear others who check into the net.

We hope to get the repeater moved and in place in the next two weeks.

In case you haven't seen it yet, AnyTone has released a new version of firmware and CPS.  Its available on the Bridgecom site https://www.bridgecomsystems.com/pages/anytone-at-d868uv-support-page

According to Chuck, K0XM, AnyTone released V 2.33 FW and 1.33 CPS. This fixes the GPS through Motorola Repeaters AND also fixes the clicking on weak signals which was caused by the colon on the clock display.

Fred,
All should be working now. Thanks for checking. On the ARDOP side the Signalink had been turned off. On the packet side, the RMS software was hung and needed to be restarted. They have just installed MS Office on two of the computers yesterday but should not have caused the interruptions.
Keep on testing.

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

If one could look where the radios came from, you might have a chance of finding the power supply,  after all it does not look like a radio. Just a green box with wires.

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

FYI, the top one looks like a National and the bottom is a Heathkit. Otherwise, I don’t know enough to be of any help.
