Wednesday Night 40m CW NET

dekle@...
 

Conditions look good for tonight.
Much of the lightning has stopped and VOACAP predicts good propagation (even to NJ !!).

I'd like to try something a little different tonight.
As you know, Bob (KE0FAT), has been trying to QNI for weeks.
So tonight (with your help) will be the night.
At the beginning of the net, after the preamble, I'll call Bob first.
If I hear him I'll be very happy.
If I don't hear him, I'll send "NIL".
(This is where you come in.)
If you hear him and you also hear me, send "BK". (break)
At that point I'll acknowledge the break by sending "GA". (go ahead)
Identify yourself and your willingness to QSP (relay) for Bob by sending:    "de (your call) / QSP".
At that point, I'll send TU GA.
Now, make the QSO with Bob (QRS to about 7 WPM) and when it's over, call me and relay his information.
I'll then resume the net for other check-ins.

We can do this if we work together.
Someone is bound to hear him - he's near St. Louis, MO.
So lets git 'er done.

OT: FS Yaesu FT-7900R 2/440 rig

Jim Sheldon
 

I have for sale, a very good condition Yaesu FT-7900R 2 meter/440 MHz dual band mobile rig.  60 watts on 2 and 50 watts on 440 MHz.  Comes complete with the RS-232 programming cable ($40 value) and the remote mounting kit.  Missing is the original paper manual but I do have the current manual on CD in PDF format and that WILL be included.  The power cord is not the original but is set up with #10 gauge wire to allow for less voltage drop if mounted remotely as I had it in my old car.  Going a different route in the new KIA Soul so no longer need this radio.
 
These are currently selling new for around $250 to $350 and are still being manufactured.
 
This one will be available at the Brutus Bash for $150 and is guaranteed to be in excellent working condition.  If someone not going to Brutus wants it, first "I'll Take It" email to w0eb@... will get right of first refusal.  If I have to ship it, I'll put it in a USPS flat rate box and the shipping will be another $12.00 anywhere in the US.  I'd prefer not to ship this out of the country as I hate going through all the customs and international shipping stuff.
 
Jim - W0EB
 
Pleas email me off the reflector - w0eb@... if anyone is interested.  I'm only offering this to the 4SQRP gang and it won't be listed anywhere else until after the Brutus Bash if it isn't gone by then.

Brutus

Jim Sheldon
 

Change of plans here.  Got a reservation in the Budget Inn Columbus for Friday night.  Will be at Brutus around 9 a.m. Friday, stay in Columbus Friday night and go home Saturday evening.  Bringing at least one case (8) and maybe a half case more of 9 amp hour batteries (these are almost new, having been pulled from an X-ray machine that had to be scrapped shortly after they were installed.  All tested good and will be fully charged when I get there.  $10 each or 2/$15 or what'cha got to trade?  I'm open to just about any kind of deal if cash isn't an option - This is, after all, supposed to be a fun hobby - LOL

Hope everyone is planning to bring some items to show, tell, or sell.  I'm going to have some Heathkit stuff, including 2 HW-16's and a matching HG-10 VFO.  All are in working order altho I haven't tried one of the 16's myself.  The VFO and one of the 16's have been verified as working and I have many QSO's on the 16, which  was purchased from Nick Kennedy, WA5BDU, at Ocon 2013.  I can hook them up if you want to try them out.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again this year. 
Hope this note gets thru Yahoo's filters.

Re: Bulders list on Four State Website

Rich Fowler <k8meg@...>
 

Thanks Larry, I think Bob might help out in this case. The two live reasonably close and it will probably work out.

However, Website builder listing could use a couple more volunteers. Some of those listed have slowed down for one reason or another. Red light or Yellow light. Send an email to Dave Martin or volunteer on the reflector.

Four State is a pretty tight group so posting on this Yahoo reflector works!

I don't remember who is doing the website, but I would like my name removed from the Builder List. I have several uncompleted kits that I'm having trouble completing. I'm having some vision problems right now and small items become a blur. Magnification helps but just lost the motivation to build that I used to have.

If you would like to build an SS-40 and SS-40HT for a fellow Four Stater, please send me an email and I'll put you in touch with the fellow with the need for a builder.
