Re: WA0MWW Shop Sale and Brutus Tailgate

 

I wonder how his HW-5400 works. The one I had in the '80s was deaf as a
stump above 20m, and not even so good there. It was a happy day when it
arrived and I could start building it and it was a happy day when it
left after trading it for an Explorer 14 yagi. The yagi was certainly
not deaf!

72, de Nate >>

P.S. No, I am not interested in buying it!

WA0MWW Shop Sale and Brutus Tailgate

WA0ITP
 

I've posted a list of WA0MWW's sale items on my web site
http://www.wa0itp.com/rons%20stuff.pdf Ron was a FB hombrewer and a Heathkit
fan, and the list reflects that.

If you are going to Brutus and see something you'd like to buy, or want to see
it close up, pse let me know and I'll try bring it along next weekend, depending
on the available room in the old Tahoe.

After Brutus, sales will be opened to all Four Staters, then to the local club,
and finally to the QRP-L list.

Anyone interested in older QRP radios? I have an Argosy and an FT-7

weigh more than a pound.

Will bring some no longer used bits and pieces like QRPometer,
tennadipper and MTR.

I find that I use my WM-2 more than the QRPometer and I now have the
*deluxe* tennadipper.

The MTR is a neat little radio but I have since acquired a KX-1 and find
that I prefer a knob to the buttons for tuning.

Just called in for reservations - no rv spots but they will take me as
primitive.
Doesn't that have a nice ring to it? "I'm a primitive..." :-P

Actually I'm a "Ham in Egg". I'll bet Terry knows what that means.

Re: Brutus Tailgate

Shack Closings.

There are so many reasons why some hang it up and some keep keying. Health is a driving factor,
and with the economy we now have an added factor. New rigs are expensive and monthly drug pills for
some of us can dig into it too.

One of my old buddies passed on two years ago, we go back to high school, and I had to spend one of my
days in Kauai Hawaii early this year cleaning out this rigs and equipment in the condo. I was happy to do it for his
spouse. Most of the stuff went back 20 years; he had not been active in the last ten.

I do believe that friendships last longer than shacks so it is good of you Terry to give him a hand.

Re: Yahoo Groups Changes

I've reverted to sending plain text as Yahoo is sending only that in some of my
other groups, and strange html characters show up in the messages, that may
occur here also. Now that the dust is settling, Yahoo's changes aren't such a
big deal.

Things have gotten much better (?) since yesterday morning.  Some of the features and functions that owners use weren't there or didn't work. They all do now.

Conversations is the term GMail uses for messages,  It's different but it works.

Check out the options in the menu bars and banners along the top banners under the picture.  That's also where the message shows up when there are requests for approval to join.

Group owners and moderators can change the picture.  Mouse over the picture of hats and a box shows up on the right side to let you do that.

Check the picture I added to the QRPme kits  Also the QRP-Tech group and the HFPack group.

Everything seems to be there now just in different places and you need to fish around with the menus and options.
