Help needed for this weekend - San Antonio Marathon December 6-7th

Lee Besing
 

I'm still short of volunteers for this weekend's San Antonio Rock and Roll Marathon.

 

This year's event will be on 2 days.   They have a 10k event on Saturday morning where we only need 8-10 volunteers total.  The main event is on Sunday morning and we need the full complement of hams to staff about 23 mile markers.

 

More event details available at http://sanantoniohams.org/blog/?p=7363

 

Please email me direct (not via the group list), or send me a text, with your name, call sign,  t-shirt size and availability.  This year we're looking at possibly using a 440uhf repeater as an alternate backup repeater, so let me know if your radio does UHF or only VHF (2 meters).  Most positions can be covered with an HT radio.

 

Thanks in advance.

New SA City Cell Phone Ordinance

All:

Lew Archer sent this message to a number of hams. I wanted to pass it
to all ARES and SARC members.

Attached is a copy of the new city ordinance covering cell phones and

As you read through this please note subsection (c), (5). It excludes
Amateur Radio Operators. However, some officers might be over enthusatic
in its application. If you do not carry a copy of your FCC license it
might be a good thing to have in the car. If you are stopped and given
a citation, take your license and go to court to show you are excluded
from the ordinance.


Now, let's see if I can attach the ordinance...

This came out of the Chief's Office directed to all officers. I received
it through my association with the Volunteers in Policing organization.

[ISN] ARRL Probing Web Server Breach by Hackers

Mike Check K5UCQ
 

For those that are ARRL members I have included an e-mail from a security subscription I receive.

If you utilize their website, I would recommend changing your password if it was established prior to April 2010. A hacker may have been able to obtain site usernames and passwords made during that time frame.


http://www.infosecnews.org/arrl-probing-web-server-breach-by-hackers/

By William Knowles @c4i
Senior Editor
InfoSec News
October 10, 2014

Last month a web server at ARRL Headquarters was breached by an unknown party. ARRL IT Manager Mike Keane, said that League members have no reason to be concerned about sensitive personal information being leaked, and assures members that there’s nothing of financial value on the compromised server.

Some ARRL servers were taken offline and isolated from the Internet when the hack was discovered. Some web functions were temporarily disabled. The ARRL expects to restore service by close of business, on Wednesday, October 8, 2014

ARRL’s Mike Keane stressed that it is highly unlikely that any sensitive information was compromised. Any information the hacker might have been able to glean from the ARRL server, he said, is already publicly available — data such as names, addresses, and call signs that appear in the FCC database.

The hacker may have been able to obtain site usernames and passwords that were established prior to April 2010, and that have not been changed since then. ARRL members who have not changed their ARRL website passwords since early 2010 should do so at this as soon as possible.

SARC Membership Meeting

Sept. 11, 2014: Meeting was called to order at 7:03 PM


Presentation by Bob Rodriguez about the San Antonio Zoo. We learned interesting facts such as:

  • Two headed turtles are common but short-lived.
  • What’s the difference between a monkey and an ape? Apes have no tail, monkeys do.
  • Hippos are very territorial. Despite being herbivores they are the most deadly to humans due to their aggression. Fish clean their teeth.
  • The SA Zoo has one of only 3 mating pairs of Okapis. This rare animal has the rear of the zebra, body of a horse, head of a giraffe and a 1 foot long tongue.
  • Why do elephants fling sand on their back? As a sunscreen and dirt smothers parasites living on the back. How can you tell the difference between an African and a Asian elephant? Ear size. African earlobe is huge. Asian smaller. Asian female elephant does not have tusks. Ears help elephant cool off but not by fanning, the fanning causes blood to flow and cools the blood like a radiator.
  • Lions hate water. Tigers love it. 3 main breeds of tigers: Sumatran (smallest), Bengal (medium) and Siberian (largest).
  • Giraffes only live 15-20 years, in captivity up to 25.

Re: This weekend's BikeMS MS150 Ride to the River - Hams still needed

Lee Besing
 

We've still got a few rest stops on the BikeMS Valero Alamo Ride to the River 2 day event, needing to be covered with hams on this Saturday.  If you are interested in being a volunteer break point ham, please contact either myself (lee@...) or Charlie Land KC5NKK (kc5nkk@...).  NO background checks or driver' license record checks are required for break point / rest stop hams, only an online volunteer form to be completed.

 

Day one route goes from San Antonio thru Seguin over to New  Braunfels, similar to previous years.  But on Day 2, Sunday, the route changes from previous  years.  There are 3 routes on Sunday with different distances, and all three of them start / end at the Comal County Fairgrounds in New Braunfels.  Most communications will be via 2 meter repeater, with some simplex operations on 440. Medical will be on a separate set of repeaters both days, deigning to touch base with us lowly logistics mortals when they need our help.  LOL

 

Currently we've even got 2 hams who volunteered to do double duty on Saturday, relocating from rest stop #1 & #2, over to rest stop #6 and #7 (south and north end of River Road route).  But Rest stop #5 (Post Road, just off IH-35, south of FM306 in New Braunfels) is still unassigned. We also have nobody covering the Comal County Fairgrounds finish line on Saturday.

 

Many of the rest stop locations closer to New Braunfels can be worked using only a hand held radio on 2 meters, so even if all you have is one of those Baofeng HT's, you can still be involved in this event.

 

We've got hams driving in from the  Houston area, Austin, Pipe Creek and even Kerrville to help.  With all the hams in the San Antonio area, we ought to be able to field a full complement of hams, with a reserve list of more willing to serve.

 

My thanks to those who are already helping this weekend.
