Well, Bulverde is pretty. Son of a friend of mine is Fire Chief there. Been mainly on IRLP and AllStar lately, and hang out on .37 2 mtr repeater. Been inactive for quite a while.

Hi Larry,

I trust you are doing well. It has been a spell since we crossed paths. We moved to Bulverde in 1997. Being hill country, I rarely get on the local repeaters anymore.

Yes, you need FCC license & radio- see below from bottom of application form. The plate is FREE (state), however there may be county fees to convert existing plate to ham license one

I certify I hold a current FCC Mobile Amateur Radio License, and I regularly operate the mobile radio equipment in each vehicle listed on this application. Signature

Thanks, Don. I don't think you have to have a radio, just be a licensed ham.

I've been playing around with IRLP and AllStar Link recently. Lots of activity there. Look for the RepeaterBook app for your phone. It will show you details about all the repeaters/nodes in your vicinity. I've also just gotten on an OpenSpot2 and waiting on a FT-70DR to get on digital. From what I can tell on the OpenSpot2, there's a lot of activity there as well. Check out www.EsstCoastReflector.com (maybe .org??)

Hello Larry, 

It's been a while since you and I have talked.

Remember somewhere in the rules that one must have a radio in their vehicle if they had played. 

Perhaps that was old school.

Been wanting to rebuild, but frankly, there's not much in the way of chatter anywhere.

Been dragging my feet on replacing equipment and amplifiers.

Kind of like computers.

Do you run Linux or Microsoft anymore?

Been looking at DStar all mode VHF/UHF/HF from Icom. 

Good to see your name and see that you're still around.

Law enforcement officials may not notice that you have more than one with same plate. That may result in a traffic stop, mostly in smaller towns, thinking your plates were stolen. (Only happened to me twice in the past 30 years, but still, it happened. )

Annual Renewal notices may not happen. You may need to visit a county tax / license branch in person to renew.

I've got 2 vehicles with my call sign plates. When I added the 2nd vehicle in January 2017, the state quit sending me renewal notices by mail for either vehicle.

When I was involved in a minor accident 2 months ago, SAPD officer said my plates were showing up as not valid, even though I had just renewed them the week before.  I still need to visit tgr Bexar County Tax Assessor ofc to see what the story is about that.

And finally, you are somewhat surrendering your privacy because Amateur Radio Callsigns are public information and can be researched via Google online, etc.. Fortunately most non-hams do not know this. Hehe.

Gift card scam

The gift card scam lures members into buying gift cards through spoofed text messages and emails. It begins with a short conversational message such as “Are you there?” that appears to be from a SARC officer or member, but is actually sent from the scammer’s email account. If the recipient responds, the scammer will reply, and the conversation quickly turns into a request to purchase gift cards.

Any time an unsolicited email conversation turns into a request to purchase gift cards, it is a scam. If this happens, discontinue the conversation and delete the message. You can also protect yourself from this scam by carefully examining the sender’s email address. If it differs from the sender’s normal address, stop and delete the message. If unsure, contact the webmaster.

Subject: Fiesta Wildflower Ride - Hams needed on 4/29

The annual Fiesta Wildflower ride is going to be happening this year on Sunday, April 29th. Unfortunately, many of the regular ham volunteers will be helping out with the BP MS 150 bike ride that same weekend.

So, we need to build a new team of ham operators to assist this ride.

Typically the organizer will provide a prepaid, limited amount, Valero fuel card to reimburse the operator at each breakpoin for driving out to their location and back. It's not much, but then again we're not supposed to be getting paid for using our ham radios, are we?

The event will be benefiting the Morgan's Wonderland location, and the start and finish line will be at Rolling Oaks Mall, off of Loop 1604 and Nacogdoches Road. This year they are not having a 100 mile route, so the event should get over by 4 p.m. at the latest.

Expect 7 or 8 breakpoints to be mend, plus net control. We always want more than one person at that control so that you can take a break.

Even though I cannot be there in person, I have agreed to help organize the ham Communications for this event. We normally do not have designated Rovers on the route, but it never hurts if you want to volunteer to sweep the route from your breakpoint up to the next breakpoint to make sure nobody gets lost.

The SAG Vehicles will be coordinated by cell phone through net control. The primary purpose of the ham at the break point is to let neck control know if there are any problems. That could be supply shortages like needing more water or ice, or medical issues.

Please contact me Direct, rather than replying back to the different group email list that I have sent this to. My address is below.

Thank you in advance for considering it. Oh, did I mention that you might get a free t-shirt out of the deal? Haha.
