After the topic came up during the Coffee Break net this morning, I asked my wife for the hardboiled egg recipe she's been using.  She tried a number of different methods and ended up with eggs that broke apart when she was attempting to peel them, until she found this recipe.  Now, virtually every egg peels perfectly.

Instant Pot Hardboiled Eggs

  1. Plug in your Instant Pot.
  2. Place the rack that came with your Instant Pot in the bottom.
  3. Place desired number of eggs on the rack.
  4. Put 1 cup of water in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  5. Put the lid on and lock the lid.
  6. Turn on the manual setting and set your Instant Pot to 7 minutes.
  7. Once your Instant Pot is finished use the quick release valve.
  8. Allow eggs to cool in the refrigerator until they are cool enough to handle.
  9. Peel, enjoy or make deviled eggs!

I found one.  It is dated 2013.  The pdf copy is dated 2016.  Now to try and figure out if they are the same or different.  It's possible somebody made a PDF copy of the bylaws in 2016 and that was the date of the file.  Next update let's put the date of the update in the document margin.

Does anybody have a copy of the club by-laws in Microsoft Word format? I.e. a .doc format? I have a copy but it is a pdf copy and I don't have the ability to convert a pdf to a .doc.

If you do have such a document, would you forward a copy to me, please.

Thanks.

Volunteer Event: Foresthill Divide Gravel Grinder - POSTPONED

When:
Saturday, 9 May 2020

Where:
Foresthill Divide

Organizer: Mike Perry mrprry2@...

Description:
POSTPONED - This is an opportunity for you to volunteer support for a Mountain bike event on Foresthill Divide run by Folsom Auburn Trail Riders Action Coalition (FATRAC). Start/Finish and net control at Foresthill, with aid and radio stations at Sugar Pine Reservoir, China Wall, Robinson's Flat, and Gorman Ranch. Station times vary and depend upon when the rides pass through. Sugar Pine will start in the morning, Gorman Ranch will end much later. Radio stations will operate in the field on two meters. Relatively easy access to the station sites. This is a great event for new hams wanting to learn to operate in field conditions!

Hello All,

FATRAC advises that, due to the COVID-19 situation, the Foresthill Fondo "Gravel Grinder" mountain bike event, scheduled for May 9, has been postponed to an undermined date.

We thank those who had volunteered to provide radio communications for the May 9 event.

Re: O'Scope for loan? #repair

Gary - KC3PO
 

Hi Robert,

I need a scope to use for troubleshooting, not teaching. If you're willing to loan, that would be very much appreciated. I'm not ready for it yet... I have a couple other things in the queue ahead of it. If your "limited amount of time" would be a week or so, that would probably work great! Until I know exactly what I'm dealing with, it's hard to know exactly how long I'd need it - but it would be a fairly short period of time.

Also, the CD I passed to my replacement Secretary, also contains a copy. There are multiple iterations if the Bylaws file. Let me know if you can’t find it and I’ll send you a link. Note the date and version number to ensure you have the latest copy.

If you cannot find the word file, send me the .pdf, I can convert it for you.  I have full version of Acrobat Pro, it should not be too difficult.

The new 2 meter repeater gear has been very busy with traffic throughout the day. During this time of social distancing and sheltering in place, drop in, say hello and keep in touch with your SFARC friends!

 

W6EK 2 Meter Nets

Check in for the latest club news and take a guess on the trivia question each Thursday evening at 7:30pm for the Club Net, first and third Wednesdays for the Elmer Tech Net and every morning from 7:30 until ??? for the new Coffee Break Net. Great to have so many folks joining in on the fun!

 

Club Meeting

April 10 @ 7:30pm join us for the SFARC Online Club Meeting. We will have a main presentation and discuss important repeater replacement information. Every SFARC member is asked to attend as we require a quorum for voting on club business.

Honda Generator Recall

Gary - KC3PO
 

Hey all - I recently got a recall notice for my generator (eu2200i) - it relates to insulation on the inverter and can cause short circuit and fire under certain conditions.

Just wanted to give you a heads up in case you didn't get a notice.

Info including affected models and serial numbers is here: https://powerequipment.honda.com/support/recalls-and-updates

Roseville Honda Motorsports is open in a reduced capacity (service / repair)... I dropped my generator off there today.

Dear Gary,

I'm coming at the tail end of your conversation, so if my question does not make sense to you just let me know.  Do you need a scope to use for teaching?  I have a Rigol DS1102E, that you could use for a limited time.  I would want it back.

Sincerely,

Robert Vaughan,
Attorney-at-law

Ah - the 475 is the scope I used for years in the Navy!

I even taught others how to use it in a Basic Test Equipment course when I had instructor duty the last couple of years in the Navy. You're right it's not very compact... but I will be in touch if I decide it's the best option for me. Thanks much!
