Harold WB4TOV. His son KD0FOG became a silent key today. That's why tower is for sale.
They are reaching out to the San Antonio ham community to see if anyone has interest.

Here is a pic of the tower. The package includes a Yaesu rotor, a13 element 2 meter beam, a hex beam, coax and control cables. The tower is motorized for raising but has a manual mechanism for tipping it over. Its 22 feet nested and 55 feet extended. 
Location: Colorado Springs so shipping would cost a bundle. I suspect it would be much cheaper to go up there in a rental truck or with a big trailer and get it
We are thinking about 4k for pricing.  New, the tower, motor and tip over bracket are about 10k   The beams and rotor and cable are just an extra benefit 

Contact  Howard Benham <howardbnhm@...> for more information.

locked Centennial on the Air

Bill Craft
 

Saturday, November 9, 2019

This Saturday, November 9th, SARC members will be able to celebrate the club’s Centennial in true radio fashion.  This will be the forth and last Special Event operations during 2019. 

 

We will be using the new station at San Antonio Museum of Science and Technology. 
[
http://samsat.org/ ] The station is set up in an office space at the Museum, and is supplied with equipment from the Museum’s warehouse and some donations from SARC members.

 

The Special Event day will proceed in three parts:

 

1. Setup, done by a volunteer team headed by Joe Bruno W5AUQ, which will begin at 7:45 AM at the storage facility.  The setup team will move the club’s tower, beam, and rotator to SAMSAT on the club’s trailer.  They will then set up the antenna system, connect it, and test it for proper operation.

 

2. Operation, done by volunteer operators, will begin at 10 AM when the Museum opens.

For this Special Event, Tom O’Brien AB5XZ will coordinate the station operation.  Logging will be done on a computer provided by Tom O’Brien, and will utilize logging software he provides.  Operators will be given instruction on logging, antenna rotation, and transceiver operation.  SARC members may operate the station between 10 AM and 4 PM, when the Museum closes.  We will use special event call sign W5SC/100.  Other amateurs may operate, but SARC members will have priority.  Operation will be on the 20 meter band using SSB mode.

 

3.  Teardown, done by a volunteer team headed by Joe Bruno W5AUQ, which will begin at 4 PM.  The teardown team will disconnect the antenna system, disassemble it, and prepare it for transport back to the storage facility.

 

Contact Joe Bruno to volunteer for the Setup or Teardown team (or both).  jlbruno4433@... or 210.363.9500

 

Contact Tom O’Brien AB5XZ to sign up for operating time.  There will be plenty of time/room for everybody.  ab5xz@... or 210.845.4966


locked Veterans Day Parade November 2nd in Universal City

Lee Besing
 

Just a friendly reminder that the annual Veterans Day parade in Universal City will be on Saturday,  November 2nd this year.  Please share with any others who might be interested.

Hams & other volunteers are needed to work with the UCPD in moving the cones / barricades to block off traffic onto Pat Booker Road when the parade is about to begin.  Law enforcement handles the cross traffic and volunteers handle parking lot entrances and side streets.

We'll have some commercial HT radios available for the non-hams.

We'll meet up at 9am inside UCPD headquarters in the Universal City Hall on Universal City Boulevard, just off of Pat Booker.  Note this is a 30.06 & 30.07 posted building. <hint>

Ironically enough, the police department will furnish free donuts, coffee and juice for the volunteers.

Traffic vests are recommended, but the Police will have some "one size fits some" orange vests.  Our experience has been that you get hassled less while wearing a vest.

Please contact me directly if you have questions or want to volunteer.

Thanks!
