Re: Missing messenger bag

Shane O'Neal <shane@...>
 

Let's try this again...

I got the laptops back, but have misplaced the messenger bag. For
those of you who were at FD, could you please be on the lookout for a
Sterling Commerce messenger bag that is silver and black. It has my
name on the front. It may have gotten stowed in with other equipment.

Thanks!
Shane

SARC
Meeting Report – 07/09


<http://sanantoniohams.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/100_1940.JPG>
100_1940



Tonight was the big night, the night that all
three candidates running for the vacancy of ARRL
South Texas Section Manager would speak in person
before the San Antonio Radio Club during their
regular monthly membership meeting.

Amazingly enough, all three candidates showed up
on time and spoke, along with current SM Ray
Taylor N5RAV who is “retiring” from that position
(with no pension provided), and SEC Mike Schwartz, KG5TL.

<http://sanantoniohams.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/100_1936.JPG>
100_1936


Close to 3 dozen hams showed up for the forum,
and it was standing room only for the last few
who arrived. There were extra chairs, it was the
extra floor space to set them out, that was lacking.

The crowd was very polite and asked good positive
questions of each candidate as they got their 15
minutes of fame before the group.

After Gary S. Tangrady, K5GST, Lee Cooper, W5LHC,
and Lou Everett, Sr., WA5LOU each had time to
speak and answer questions, the STX SEC Mike
KG5TL addressed the group on the importance of
working together and cooperating during emergency operations and other
events.


<http://sanantoniohams.org/blog/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/100_1926.JPG>
100_1926



The normal meeting agenda was suspended to
allow the speakers to go first, then SARC
president JC Smith N5RXS suggested that the
normal reading of the minutes and treasurers
report be delayed until the next month’s meeting
due to both officers being out of town, and the
club being out of time. The agreement with
K-Comm Ham Store is that the club will be
finished and out by 9pm because an employee has
to stay there overtime during the meeting.

After the meeting, about a dozen folks went up
the street to a nearby IHOP restaurant to enjoy a
meal and conversation. Unfortunately, Mike KG5TL
had a bad experience when he discovered that some
petty thief had punched the door lock on his
truck and swiped his briefcase. Fortunately the
crook was scared off, most likely by an IHOP
employee stepping outside to take a break, and
none of his ham radios or other items were
stolen, and Mike said the contents were replaceable.

I took some videos of each candidate speaking,
but I learned a valuable lesson after I played
them back tonight and converted them to MP4
format, which YouTube.com prefers.

That lesson was…. don’t set your camera tripod up
mid way back in the room and in the path of a fan
that was blowing air across it. Some of the
audio in these video’s worked okay, those where I
had accidently moved the camera away from the fan
and closer to the speakers, but most of them are
too poor of quality to post online. The first
few were taken from too far away, and the
lighting contrast of the speakers was unacceptable as well.

Since I can’t post all 3 speakers with semi-equal
coverage, I’ve chosen not to post any of the
speakers. I’m sorry to have disappointed some of
you who were eagerly awaiting these videos, but
it won’t be happening this time. Better luck
next time, and I’ll make a stronger effort to be
more aware of environmental issues (like the
blowing fan) that might otherwise impact the quality of the recording.

Someone said the deadline for voting for ARRL
South Texas Section Manager was August 14th, i.e.
ballots must be received by that date, but don’t
take their word for it. Open your ballot and
read the instructions inside, and then follow
them to the letter. Don’t let your vote get
tossed aside because you couldn’t read and follow
instructions that were a lot easier than the Technican Exam.

SARC Meeting - Meet the SM Candidates Night - correct link

For those who wanted the direct link to the blog's posting, it got a
bit messed up in my copy/paste during the prior message. Here's the
link, but you already read the article..

http://sanantoniohams.org/blog/?p=1983

Lots of other articles / stories / photos of ham related events if
you chose to peruse the rest of the Blog entries, and only a few
items still listed in the free classified ads. Perhaps if I charged
for ads, there would be more interest, but then I'd have to account
for and report the income, so I think I'll stay the course by
continuing to offer free ads for hams to post.

Heat Stroke, it must have been heat stroke! :)

Today's paper had mention of our event on Page 2 of the Metro
section, showing 2 photos, one of Gordon K5SUZ and Bill AC5AS
erecting Gordon's crank-up tower and another showing Schuylar KE5VIP
talking on the 20 meter station.

And while we were closing down, KSAT TV 12 showed up with a camera
man, so watch their news tonight and see if they put anything on the
air about us.

I've already posted 3 sets of photos and comments at
www.sanantoniohams.org/blog site. Andrew KD5NNN provided us
with nearly 60 photos for sharing, in addition to the 57 photos I
had already posted on-line.

I'm willing to post more photos from other sources, if they send them
to me at "info@sanantoniohams.org", or contact me to make
arrangements. I can also set you up on the site to let you post your
own if you prefer to do it that way.

OT: June San Antonio Hams.org newsletter released Thursday.

Lee Besing
 

I released the June issue of San Antonio Hams's monthly newsletter last night. By accident, I re-sent out the May 2009 issue, and for that I apologize to those who got that issue twice. The electronic newsletter focuses on ham radio related issues, mostly about stuff affecting hams in the San Antonio, TX area. This issue dealt mostly with Field Day preparation efforts in San Antonio with our combined Field Day event, mentions the free classified ad service we offer, and a sneak preview at the most recent news blog postings about ham radio stuff.

If you didn't receive it and want to preview it anyway, here is a direct link...
http://sanantoniohams.org/letters/letter_06252009.html

If you aren't getting this newsletter, but want to be subscribed to this electronic newsletter contact me off-list direct with a request using "info@sanantoniohams.org" address.

Heat Advisory

Shane O'Neal <shane@...>
 

FYI, it is going to be a SCORCHER on Saturday.

We will have multiple air conditioned locations in which to cool off at
Field Day. Please avail yourselves of them often.

It *may* become necessary to temporarily suspend those Field Day stations
which are not air conditioned until the Sun goes down, or move them to a
cooler location. The Station Captains and Field Day Leadership team will
monitor the temperature and make that call if it becomes necessary.

Shane NS5D

How NOT to direct traffic...

Lee Besing
 

I'm sure at some time, we've all seen a person (cop or volunteer)
directing traffic and wondered where the heck they learned to do it
in such a manner we were totally confused about what they were
wanting us (the driver) to do. And we've seen some who really have
their act together so that you truly understand it without a second
thought. Back in the 80's at a REACT convention up in Indiana, we
had an Indiana State Trooper conduct a class on how to, and how not
to, direct traffic. When he did the "how not to" portion, he turned
on a boom-box and started break dancing (or the equivalent from back
then). Then he did it properly, showing the folks in the seminar
how to make eye contact one lane / direction at a time, get their
attention and get them stopped, work your way all four directions,
using the lights if possible to assist, and keep your eyes moving
because some joker isn't going to notice the stopped traffic and try
to go around.

Of course, he also said don't direct traffic if you can get the
drivers to move out of harms way, which I believe is also the law /
rule down here in Texas as well. If you are doing this without
being under the direction of a law enforcement agency / officer, you
could be in a world of hurts if someone has a wreck and blames your
attempt at traffic direction as the cause.

Anyway... I was sent this link to a Yahoo.com video about a copy up
in Rhode Island directing traffic. Perhaps they get trained
differently up there than they do down here in Texas.... this is an
example of how "not to do it"...

Dancing Traffic Cop
This cop has moves! Rhode Island traffic cop Tony Lepore gets down
and funky directing motorists. Question is; does anyone understand
his hand gestures? http://video.yahoo.com/watch/5293505/13960804

Re: Address of SA Field Day Site - update

Lee Besing
 

Drove by the actual facility in person on Monday evening. The big
sign in front verified as saying 300 S. Callaghan Rd, although street
sign at next intersection says "SW Callaghan Rd",

I also observed / verified the existence of a 6' wrought iron fence
surrounding the premises, so the grassy area "behind" the designated
10/75 meter station location has a fence between the grassy area and
the gravel / paved area where the RV will be parked. Perhaps
permission has been obtained (or will be obtained) to allow us to run
coax feeds thru the fence and set up the NVIS, or other antennas
needing to be staked down, out in the grassy area?

Hmm, wonder if that fence could be loaded up for 75/80 or 160
meters? Just kidding.

Re: Address of Field Day Site - correction / update

Google disagrees with the address of "300 S. Callaghan Rd." Google
Maps says that it ought to be around 200 block of S. Callaghan Rd
instead. Here is a street level traffic shot of the Academy using
the 232 S. Callaghan Road address.

Emacs!


But the official SA City Website says the address truly is 300 S.
Callaghan Road...
From their website... http://www.sanantonio.gov/safd/trainingresources.asp
