I am out of town and cannot make it. 

Tubes can be very valuable.  Tested tubes even more so.  Matched pairs on top of that.

Some tubes like large nixies and those sought by audiophiles should be tested and sold on a site like ebay.  I would be happy to test some tubes on my Hickok 752.  I also own a Nixie test unit.

Tubes like Tungsol 5881, USA made 6550 and 2A3’s are some of the ones I can name off the top of my head but there are many others.

That being said, I would be interested in buying up to four EL34s and four 6V6’s for an amplifier project I have at the market rate the group decides on.

We also want to be careful not to flood the market with tubes.

Harold has graciously printed out more of the labels we have been using.  This will assist in adding the next batch of items to our inventory.  This inventory has also brought to our attention the need to make sure that, Tubes, if you will, do not fall into the category of trash and end up in the dump.  Some of these items have shown to be very very valuable to the Ham Radio community as well as antique radio collecting/restoring.  The funds generated from this little expedition will pay for at least one radio I think.  That makes it worth it in my book!  One of our biggest goals was to restore the donors’ faith in Ham Radio, from what I have been led to believe we did accomplish this.

 

Radio Fiesta is coming up, and this Monday we will also try to determine what will and what will not be taken to radio fiesta.  This onslaught of tubes has made us take note of the value of these items and what we should do with them to keep the “good ones” in circulation.  Even the bad ones could be inserted into a non-working radio set to just show what was once used to make long distant communications possible.  I guess all they have to do is glow!  At this point in time, I think it would be in our best interest to solicit these tubes to the on-line tube re-sellers to get us more bang for our buck and keep our involvement to a bare minimum.  But an inventory needs to be done to determine what we do have.  Some of the items that we are putting into the system need to be either trashed or recycled.  Most of this should be on a case by case basis to be determined at the time of picking it up and inspecting it.  For all practical purposes once an item is handled a dispensation should be made as to what happens to it.  Handling items numerous times is basically bordering on insanity!  We need to get a little better at this.

 

Any and all who wish to join us this coming up Monday please feel free to do so…

    On Sunday I spent 2.5 hrs mostly getting like items into like piles.  The biggest pile ended up being vacuum tubes by a long shot.  If the boxes had been sorted items into piles as they were unloaded, it would have taken closer to a half hour.  On the other hand this was the best bending lifting exercise I have had in many many years.  Glad I was able to help.  It was fun being part of a team with different expertises.  

    A little planning early on, can save a lot of time when you don’t have room too spread out.

SK Donation

 

It has been brought to my attention that some individuals would like to know what is happening with the items that were recently picked up that were part of a donation to SARC.  At this point in time we are not letting this information out for numerous reasons, one of which is we do not know what we have or what we are going to do with some of these items, and of course how much they might be sold for if at all.  Every bit of this takes time from the individuals doing the work, it is for this reason that we do not want any of this to be made available as of yet.  Right now we don’t know what we have, so please bear with us! 

 

FYI:  Harold has decided that we need a set of guidelines for this SK Committee, and I agree.  He has also graciously decided to pen this guideline.  This document will make sure that not only does the SK Committee have rules for what we as a committee accomplish, but this will protect any and all aspects of what we will be doing.  One of the things we are trying to do is make sure what we do will be above board.  We do not want to hide or do anything that would be considered as bad practice.  If anything is done that could be misconstrued as dishonest, I myself would be very very disappointed.  Things like that, dishonest practices, do nothing but put a taint on our club.  I for one do not want to see that happen.

 

For those of you that just HAVE to know, we would appreciate your assistance in doing the inventory.  Please text me at the number right below my call sign and you will be added to our workday call-out list. 

 

We will be doing another work day sometime early next week, the week beginning December 9th.  If anyone would like to help it will be done at the storage site.  Location:

 

Crazy Lady Used Books

10660 FM 78

Schertz, Tx 78154              (The actual address is Cibolo Texas 78108, but that is nowhere near the site.  Use the Schertz address and you’ll get there.  If you use the real address (Cibolo) please make note of my phone number so I can give you directions when you get lost in Cibolo.  Remember that the post office  is an independent agency that is still part of the Federal Government, so that could explain the discrepancy between reality and fiction.)

 

And for those of you that were part of the pick-up crew, please remember if you have any interest in any of the items it that we picked up, it would be nice to have that information.  At this point in time, all I have is that I myself have shown an interest in some of those items.
