That is really great. Sorry can’t participate…just a tad too far from Tacoma WA where I’m at at the moment. Really good job Lee.

WOW! This year the city of Shavano park is letting us use their new huge pavilion for operations. This should be a tad cooler than the tent.
Setup starts at 0930 Saturday and we go on the air at 1pm.
We have loads of room under the pavilion so we all can be spread out. the sides are open so it should be well ventilated naturally,  but just in case Floyd is adding fans.
Come on over and join us. Get on the air, kibitz or just observe. Y'all are welcome

locked Help on antenna parts

Bill Craft
 

Hello,
 
I would like to know if you would check with the older guys in your club to see if they know where I might can find parts for Avanti base cb antennas made back in the 70's, like the Astroplane and Ramrod. Even torn up ones that might have good pieces left on them. I know you're a ham club, but I was hoping maybe some of the older guys who were around in the cb boom back then, might know where something is. Please let me know. I'm in Alabama and checking around the country to see if anyone has anything.
 
Thanks,

locked Military Honors for W9GVW, Maj Eric C. Juhre (USAF RET)

Bill Craft
 

 Military Honors for W9GVW, Maj Eric C. Juhre (USAF RET)
 
Eric was an active member of our ham radio community here in San Antonio, and a friend who was also retired Air Force.  Eric passed away suddenly on 15 March, 2021 of stage 4 lung cancer and other medical complications.
 
Eric, W9GVW, was not a SARC member but was very active on the ham bands here in San Antonio.  He was active on two meters as well as HF, to include FT8, CW and SSB.  He was a member of several nets and checked into the "Air Forces Flyers Club" Net,  and the "Rare Ones" Net in New Orleans.  He also checked into several Texas nets daily.
 
Eric spent 20 years in the USAF, 16 as a pilot of KC-135s and RC-135s, most of that time as an instructor pilot.
 
He was also an Intelligence Officer in the Air Force and spent the last four years of his career at the National Security Agency at Fort George G. Meade, Maryland.
 
After retirement from the Air Force, he returned to San Antonio to live, and taught Science to school children here for twelve years.
 
His remains were laid to rest at the Fort Sam Military Cemetery on Thursday, 29 April, 2021.  Due to inclement weather the day before, the planned military honors for Eric had to be rescheduled.
 
The new date for military honors for Major Eric C. Juhre is Tuesday, 6 July, 2021, at 3PM in Shelter #1 at the Fort Sam Military Cemetery.  Masks are no longer required for all fully vaccinated people.
 
Appreciate your help in getting the word out to as many of Eric's friends and fellow hams as possible.
 
Thanks and 73s,
 
Brian Clark, WB5DRI

Bill,

I do not know who asked you a question about the General class, but I can guarantee that the Technician material will not be covered adequately for someone to pass the Tech exam if they only take the General class. Dan’s pdf for the Tech class is free, and can be downloaded from

KB6NU's No-Nonsense No-Code Study Guides
https://www.kb6nu.com/study-guides

The pdf for the Tech guide is free. The pdf files for the General and Extra guides each are $9.97 (maybe plus tax).

Want to take a General class?
 

Hi--

I've finally set the date for the online General Class. The class will start on Monday, May 3, 2021 and consist of eight, two-hour sessions starting at 8 pm CDT (6pm PDT) and running until 10 pm CDT (8pm PDT). The eight sessions will take place on the following dates:

  • Monday, May 3
  • Thursday, May 6
  • Monday, May 10
  • Thursday, May 13
  • Monday, May 17
  • Thursday, May 20
  • Monday, May 24
  • Thursday, 27

The cost is $40 for adults. High school and college students can attend for free. If you’re a student, all you have to do to register is send an email to cwgeek@... stating that you want to take the class. All others can register using PayPal or Amazon Pay here.

I’ll be using my No-Nonsense General-Class License Study Guide (for tests given between July 2019 and June 2023). It’s available as an ebook, paperback book, or audiobook.

If you have any questions, please contact me.
