Dang, I need to get a job with a regular schedule so I can make these radio club meetings and see this cool stuff! Ughhh!

The yearly subscription for the service is about $100.00 - for someone that does allot of of the network type stuff, it would be well worth it!

CEPT (European reciprocal license) change

Tom O'Brien
 

"From 4 February the US Technician and General class amateur licences
are no
longer valid for CEPT reciprocal licensing.

At its January meeting, the CEPT's Radio Regulatory Working Group re-
evaluated
current United States licence standards against those of the other CEPT
signatories.

They found that the recently revised standards for Technician and
General no longer
have any equivalent in the European community of nations.

Affected licensees will now have to apply for a formal reciprocal
licence if they
wish to operate in a CEPT country."

Re: Questions and Wants

Just a suggestion! Your friend should check with the city before installing his towers. Bulverde has some seriously stupid ordinances and even stupider ways of enforcing them. All it takes is one neighbor to complain, without the city knowing what he is doing, and they could be facing problems with the city.

We could not move out of there fast enough, after they started so-called enforcement of some of their Hollywood Park type ordinances. Horses, trailers, and fences, all a major pain in the rear out there.

Even if your friend does not think he is in any sort of violation, he really needs to check for a building permit to install his towers.

Steve,

Yesterday morning, when I walked down the driveway out to get the paper, I
noticed Venus and Jupiter were getting close to each other. Today, they are
big and bright in the eastern sky. My wife and I will be looking for them
and the moon over the next few days.

Space Weather News for Jan. 31, 2008
http://spaceweather .com

MORNING SKY ALERT: Set your alarm for dawn. On Friday morning, February
1st, Venus and Jupiter converge in the southeastern sky less than 1 degree
apart; they will beam through the rosy glow of dawn like a pair of
celestial headlights. It's a spectacular view worth waking up early to
see. The February 1st alignment kicks off four mornings of beautiful views
as the crescent Moon moves in to join Venus and Jupiter over the weekend.

Need Info Old Ham Radio

group. I've already forwarded a copy to Gary Harmon as one of those
I could think of. I didn't have an email for Gerry Barry, but I'm
not sure he has one.

I can think of a couple of hams that would qualify, one of them
Gerry Barry, another Gary Harmon. Both members of San Antonio Radio
Club (www.w5sc.org). I'll forward your request to that club's
officers and email list for some help. I'm sure that there are
others that I will think of later.

The San Antonio Repeater Club will be holding their quarterly
meeting this Friday (www.sarepeater.net) where you might find some
folks who have been around longer than radios have. :)

Lee,

I was looking at the local HAM/Radio site because I am trying to
find a qualified tinkerer in old vintage tube gear. I have a
vintage 1960 EICO amp with one output valve that blows possibly due
to improper bias or filter cap problem. However I don't have the
bench equipment or knowledge to fix this. I cant find a local
person who knows how to fix it so far either. I was wondering if
you know of someone who is handy with older tube equipment who I
can contact. I would happily pay for their time to get this piece
functioning again.
