I hope you've been following along and enjoying the YouTubers Hamfest of 2022.  I had an excellent livestream yesterday with John Kruk from Yaesu, but there were many other great streams also.  Follow along with the Playlist here.
 
Tonight's livestream is both the wrap-up for the weekend's Hamfest and also my monthly giveaway which will include a lucky winner of a brand new Buddistick Pro and another winner of a BuddiHex.  I'll have a few other items to give away also, so be sure and join us on the stream.  Signups at this link will be closed a couple of hours before the livestream starts so that I can sort the list.
 
You can tune in via Facebook, Twitch or our YouTube Channel.
 
We livestream with a targeted topic every Sunday at 7pm Central Time (CDT or CST).  Put this one your calendar!

Bill,

Do you know anyone who owns a Yaesu FT-991 (not A)?

I need GPS support information.

I bought the RS232 cable and followed the instructions and no GPS!

It has to be easier than I am making it.

 

If you can post this to a user’s group, please!!!

 

Thanks,

Hello Bill

There was a wooden plaque that was on the wall in the old Red Cross building. That plaque had Nameplates of the past presidents of the radio club up to the late 70s. don't know what may have happened to that.

JC,

all of the club's paper records (that were available 1962-1980) were digitized and archived on our website storage. It not available to the public, but is only accessed via FTP since the files are huge.

I did read the minutes from oct 79-to march 80- there is no mention of MARS activity. Could have been in clubs newsletter but I don't have those years.

Good evening.

I am a retired Marine writing a book about an October 1979 typhoon, fuel spill and fire at a U. S. Marine Corps training camp on the lower slopes of Mount Fuji, Japan. The incident left 73 injured — most of them Marines, many horribly burned. Thirteen died. 38 of the injured were evacuated from Japan to Brooke Army Medical Center.

Among the many people in San Antonio who rallied to help those Marines and their families were volunteer MARS operators who set up a station on the hospital’s seventh floor. They spent hours arranging phone patches for the Marines’ families — allowing them to avoid long-distance telephone charges while keeping relatives updated on their loved one’s health, and taking care of business in their hometowns.

The help made it easier for family members to remain by their Marine’s bedside — which doctors said increased patients’ likelihood of survival.

Would your club by chance have any sort of historical records documenting this kind service? Might any of the volunteer operators who helped be available to share recollections?

I will be doing research in San Antonio from Saturday, May 21 until Saturday, May 28. Should it be possible to learn more about this aspect of the story of the Camp Fuji Marines, I would be most grateful for any available information.

More about me — and examples of my work — can be found at ChasHenry.com.

Thank you for your consideration.
