Re: K8RA P2 Iambic Paddle.

Lee Besing
 

I've got one of the P1 models available from an estate sale, still packed in its original foam. :-)

Might have some other keys in the various boxes as well.

Hopefully, someone can give good advice on paddles. When first licensed in the 70's, I used a straight key as a novice. I never liked of felt comfortable with CW, so I stick to voice and digital these days.

I'm looking at picking up one of these and would like to get hands on time. I'm curious as to the difference in the feel of the spring and the magnetic options. I'm leaning towards the magnetic option, just guessing it would be smoother on the gap adjustment and more consistent.

I have a Bencher BY1 and basically like it but the spring arm retention doesn't perform reliably and occasionally shifts position requiring complete re-adjustment. And is very frustrating!

Anyone have a P2 (or know someone who does) I could try out (either option)?

Thanks,

Re: Ed Larose

Gary - this is Jean Larose, Mrs. KS5V. Ed passed Monday morning in the
wee hours of the morning. The doctors had told us (3/7) that the cancer
was "bad" and that it was stage 4, however, they nor us realized that it
was so far advanced. We tried diligently to get him some relief from the
pain but not even morphine, 120 mg every 8 hours could contain the
beast. I will miss him dearly but the pain has stopped so I thank God
for that.

Ed didn't want a funeral or a memorial service so I am having a
Celebration at the house Sunday at 2:00 p.m. A friend of ours calls it
an Irish wake. We'll tell stories about Ed and remember the good times.
Everyone brings something.

Jean

Hams,


There was a break-in early this morning at the Hays County maintenance
yard in Wimberley where we store our Hays County CERT command center bus and
other equipment. The thieves grabbed our new, still-in-the-box Yaesu FT857D
that we were planning to install in the bus. The slime-balls cut the lock
off the generator cage on the back of the bus and took two Honda EU2000i
generators (serial numbers EAAJ 1738310 and EAAJ 1693292) plus associated
power cables and connectors. They also walked off with four Bushnell 10×50
binoculars. If anyone tries to sell this equipment to you, please call the
Hays County Sheriff's Office.


Thank you,


Gordon

Soooo, Gary,

Did you sell 'em?
That was all three for $1,000, or $1,000 each?
You didn't say what kind of condition they are in, or if they are in working order.
Do you still have the R-388?
