Great photos and it's also great to see that our club President, Rosendo, was able to attend Radio Fiesta! Wish I could have been there, too but here I am in Delawhere(?). See y'all in the Fall! Pete Carpenter, KC3MVS

Edited

To make sure we are ready for Field Day 2022 we decided to maintenance the TRA-4 Rotator used for the Tri-Band beam antenna.

It was in great shape and all I did was put some grease on the gears.

Still to do is to replace the cracked RJ-45 on the at the end of the cable coming from the rotator.

My short drone video and a boatload of photos were uploaded to my Dropbox link during the event, and emails were then sent out to both Bill and Jimmie that afternoon, at my wife's suggestion. So they're sitting there waiting for those two folks to pull down the photos.

I'd make the recommendation to check your spam folder.   If you can't find the emails from dropbox, let me know. I have an alternative method of sending a large number of files to people without clogging up email accounts.

Hello,


It's a pain to write and let you know that WX5W has gone home.


I attended his memorial service about three years ago, if memory serves correctly.


Bill and I were friends and loved contesting.


I'm sorry to be the one to let you know.

I was seeking info about a ham I knew back in 1993 to 1994  His name was Bill he lived on the near north side of San Antonio. He was in a wheel chair and had a big 2 meter antenna at some property of his at Canyon Lake also a smaller one in San Antonio. At the time I was living in La Vernia and did some work on his house after a fire. I lost contact with him in about 6 years later when I moved to Arkansas. He was very active on 2 and 20 meters . I know it's not much to go on but might you remember what became of him?

I’m a VE with GLAARG for remote exams and we have some Spanish language resources for VEs so I’m checking with our Puerto Rico team to see if they have anything that might help. We also apparently have a Spain team, but I presume she’s looking for Latin American, and not Castilian, Spanish resources.

 

I was surprised that hamstudy.org didn’t have a Spanish language option. They have the Mexican FMRE study guide. I may see if I can suggest this as an addition to their materials.

 

If we can’t find someone, I might be able to find someone via Ham Radio Crash Course Discord who could meet with her online to discuss questions.

Do we have any hams who are bilingual (Spanish and English) who would be willing to help the wife of one of our members to pass her Technician ham exam? She has an electrical engineering background, and really just needs to be able to understand the questions in English.

 

One of the ham study websites that I refer people to is designed to help people focus on only the correct answers to the question pool. You would just need to help her understand the correct questions in English, and just ignore all of the incorrect answers.

I have two of those radios and they are wonderful. I would recommend going to RTsystems at https://www.rtsystemsinc.com/ and purchase their USB cable and software so that you can program it with a laptop or your computer. I use my laptop because I'll take the laptop out to the vehicle and just plug in the cable.

If you can use an Excel spreadsheet, you can use their software. It's worth every penny. Programming by hand is a PITA.

I've got some PDF files I could send you that show you how to set it up for aprs, which is built-in to the radio. It has a built-in GPS in the control head.

It also handles a TNC that you can hook up to a computer to do winlink or general packet operations.

You do want to make sure that you've got a good power connection hooked up to it because it draws some amps. I run it directly off the battery with the inline fuse using the standard OEM power cable. I do have spare cables if you end up needing one. But expected to draw at least 20 amps, especially on high power.
