So this is a forecast from a year ago?  And yes, ionospheric conditions last year were pretty poor.

Well, this just might take care of our bright idea to run QRP. I suggest we all bring amps & generators.

Three CME's will impact Earth starting at 0000 UTC 6-22-15. The major CME from last evening will reach Earth at 1400 UTC 6-22-15. This is a major storm. All three are forecast to last well over 40 hours total. More information from the SWPC should be posted on this Father's Day Holiday.

Is there a shift sign up? My work and family situation doesn't allow me to get out to the meetings right now. I intend to be up there all day saturday and early Sunday if needed.

Last Year's FD Stats

Dennis - WU6X
 

Hi FD-2016 Hopefuls,


A review of last year's stats by operator shows we did very well overall. But, remember, to change the "operator initials" in the logging software to get your Q's counted. If you don't change the operator when you sit down to operate, we have no way of knowing you were operating and your contacts likely went to the previous operator's initials. Sorry about that ... just saying!


We plan to go over the logging software at the next meeting's Tech-10, I believe. So, don't miss it.


Stat's from last year (less GOTA where Jef had 26) were as follows:


WU6X164
KD6MLH128
K6GPB125
K6UDA94
N6EMS92
WE6C86
AI6JB50
KK6RXR50
N6ANT44

For Sale: Alinco DR-610 dual band mobile & Glass Mount antenna, with car attached

Greg - KO6TH
 

Before I rip the radio out, and try to remove the glass mount antenna without breaking something, I'll give the Ham community first shot...  I'm looking to sell my mobile rig, with car attached.  The radio is an Alinco DR-610 2m/70cm dual band FM mobile rig, with the usual features (50 watts, memory, tone stuff, DTMF hand mike, etc).  It's nicely mounted in the dash, below the AM/FM deck, and coupled to a Larsen 2/70 glass mount antenna on the rear hatch window.  The overall setup works quite well.


The car is a 1994 Acura Integra GS-R, the sportiest version of the car.  It has 268,000 miles on it, but the engine was replaced a few years ago, and has less than 75k on it.  5-speed manual transmission, power everything, Alloy wheels, sun/moon roof.  AM/FM/Cassette.  Pretty much everything works.  Well maintained, no rust, no rips in the upholstery, etc.  Just got it smogged, and all is well.  I'm the original owner.


If you look online, the GS-R models for this year have an AVERAGE price of nearly $6,000.  I'll let it go - with the radio - for $4,500.  Current Amateur Radio operator license required.


Contact me by email at my call sign (KO6TH) at ARRL dot net.


DXE Balun

k6dgw@...
 

After almost a year here in the Silver State, I'm finally getting down to stuff I paid to have moved and will never ever need.  One item is a 10 KW, 11 KV DX Engineering 4:1 balun, open-wire to coax.  I believe it is a DXE-BAL200-H22-C.  Unfortunately, the printing on the label has all faded off.  It's in a cast aluminum case which I had bolted to the tower at the base.  DXE catalog that just came lists it at $189.  To SFARC, I'll ship it for $100.


Also down near the bottom of the stuff is some more things from the estate of Lee, K6LQT.  I'll post them here first as soon as I figure out what's there.


73,

PS:  I wasn't running 10 KW to it, the feedline was just at a high voltage point on 160 and I needed the 11 KV insulation rating. :-))

Thanks, Bruce.  I listened on both frequencies for a long time and heard nothing except occasional local traffic on the repeater channel.  Thanks for your input.

Hi Gerry,

No, downlink is 145.800, in about 5 minutes!

Missing Extension Cord

Dennis - WU6X
 

To Whom it May Concern,

I believe I loaned my 3-way extension cord, approximately 6 to 8 foot, to someone in SFARC a few months ago. It is light brown in color and the end with the 3 receptacles is marked with my callsign. Please check your stuff to see if you might have it ... the term of the loan is now up .   Dennis - WU6X
