Video telephones

Walter - K5EST
 

Who knew, back in the 1930's there was a dream of video telephones and the latest edition of KAR (Kansas Amateur Radio magazine) has a really great picture of this dream. Look at the end of the newsletter!

Yep Brian qrp has come a long way.
Am sure this design could be rebuilt as SMD and be size of a postage stamp.

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

Bill,

Got back from cards around 9:10 EST.  You were loud as can be and I was ready at 9:13 after a QNI and you were GONE !  A no-no for Nets but at 9:27 I called you just to see if you could here me.

80m for me does not work well, getting set to add another 35ft of wire to see if that helps at all.

I did win 25 cents at cards though !

I appreciate your effort as I host a 2m Simplex Coffee RT at 0800 six days a week and often there are only one or two that stop by but sometimes 8-10 ?

Very sad news!  I have 25 QSOs in my log with Ken over the years, all QRP and QRPp.  He had big ears and would often answer my peanut whistle CQ.  Even had a QSO with him while I was portable with 1/2 watt on a remote lake in VE3 land.  I will miss him a lot.

Sympathy and prayers to his family.

Here is his obituary :

Kenneth Alan Louks

Kenneth A. Louks of Freeland, Michigan passed away February 10, 2019 at the age of 71.

Ken was a life-long resident of the Saginaw area.  After graduating from Buena Vista High School in 1965, he entered Western Michigan University and obtained a bachelor’s degree in sociology.  Ken served in the US Army from 1970-72 and was stationed in Stuttgart, West Germany where he was assistant to the Chaplain.  Upon his honorable discharge, he was employed by the US Postal Service from 1972 to 2002, reaching the level of Mail Processing Manager at the Saginaw USPS facility.

Ken had a strong Christian faith and was past member of Sheridan Avenue United Methodist Church, Auburn UMC, and presently was a member of Hopevale Church.  He enjoyed the Christian fellowship of all members at these houses of worship.

Ken was a gifted keyboardist from his youth and throughout his life.  Ken was organist at Auburn UMC and part-time organist at Sheridan Avenue and Swan Valley UMC over the years.  Ken also taught piano from his home.  Even after a stroke at age 60 rendered his left hand paralyzed, Ken still played his electronic keyboard, recording and sharing his music, which were often arrangements of favorite hymns.  Ken also played the dulcimer.

Ken loved his Lord and his country and was proud of his service in the Army.  He enjoyed traveling our scenic country, either in his RV or Tahoe, often stopping at the homes of relatives or his ham radio buddies.  He loved nature, and loved visiting relatives whether they were in Saginaw, Mayville or Florida.

Ken’s favorite hobby was amateur radio.  Licensed in 1965 as WA8REI, he was very active on the air until his death.  Ken loved to operate his radio, using Morse code, from wilderness areas as well as from his home.  He made loyal friends on the air all over the world.

Ken was predeceased by his parents, Ferris and Donna Louks.  He is survived by his brothers David (Kathryn) Louks, Paul (Vicky) Louks, a dear aunt G. Elaine Fox, and many treasured nieces, nephews and cousins.

Honoring Ken’s wishes, there will be no formal funeral service.  His wish was for his friends and relatives to remember him in their hearts and give all thanks and praise to God for our time of grace.  Also per Ken’s wishes, he will be cremated, and his remains interred at Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, Michigan at a later date.  Those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider Hopevale Church of Saginaw
