Greetings,
  Another item FS from a local SK. A barely–used Weller SCD100 vacuum desoldering gun. Complete with tips, filters, instructions and box. You know how much those Hakko units cost! Will ship to US address for $75 money order or PayPal. This is picture of actual item.

GM Chuck, don't think you can get back into the page to do a print.

However, we are working on the gremlin computer code to release the listings.

As soon as things are solved, I will post an email to this reflector.

Hi Walter,

I registered myself, KØBOG and my wife, KC1IHS this morning. I printed out my wife's registration but forgot to print mine, is it possible for me to get back to that? I did receive acknowledgement from PayPal for both registrations. Thanks for all your work on this year's event and for being able to hold it at Stone Castle again, we really enjoyed it last year for the first time.

GM All, well to use an old term from Analog Television, we are experiencing "Technical Difficulties" with the computer code to trigger the registrations listings.

Your registration entries are being recorded but not entered into the Ocon listing page. Just to give you an idea, as of 11 PM Pacific time, 40 registrations, 14 kit builds and 6 Ocon U signups. There are more this morning.

We have the Master working with the problem so you will soon see a big fill-up of the registration attendee list.

Please give us a chance to find the little computer code gremlin and all will be well.

Thank you all for supporting 4SQRP and Ozarkcon!

Subject: [4SQRP] OT: FS GW Instek model GSP-810 for sale

I have an older GW Instek, 150 KHz to 1.2 GHz spectrum analyzer with tracking generator for sale.   It's in working condition, has cosmetic issues on the case but otherwise it's sound. It originally came from an instructor's position at one of the ITT Tech schools before I got it.  It can be remotely controlled through an RS-232 port on the back, but GW Instek wants $200 + for the software so of course, I don't have it.  You can download (I think) demo software (doesn't expire) that will do screen captures & prints, just won't allow the computer to control the SA.

It's a heavy item so shipping will be around $35-40 extra but I'm asking $350 + shipping for this unit. 

If anyone is interested and planning on attending OzarkCon in Branson (first weekend in April) I could bring it with me.  If it doesn't sell before then, I will have it at Branson in April.

Yep Brian qrp has come a long way.

Too bad hf antennas have not found a way to be miniaturized in the same way.
