He was a good guy, and he was one of my VEs when I got my technician class in 2003. I miss talking to him at the shop. May The Lord bless and comfort his family.

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

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?

New Ham Store in San Antonio next week?

Lee Besing
 

I just found out that Gary WF5Y (aka "Grumpy") is planning to open a new HAM
Radio / Surplus Electronics Parts Store in San Antonio next week! The
location is supposed to be near Cee Gee & Broadway, just outside Loop 410
near the airport. His current website is www.grumpyshop.net. (No, I don't
get paid for this, nor do I handle his website hosting, etc.)



Also, Altex Electronics will be expanding their Ham Radio related inventory
in the near future, according to reports made to the AARO Board recently.
Full details still pending, but we heard they are increasing their stock at
their IH-35 store (in San Antonio) for coax and coax related items, and are
looking to perhaps build a vendor relation with Ham Radio suppliers /
manufacturers such as MFJ and other sources. Altex has donated $$ to the
AARO ham club in exchange for advertising in their club's newsletter.
www.aa5ro.org will have the newsletters when the ads start appearing.
(Actually, the newsletters from previous months are already there, even
without the ads. J ) . I don't get paid for this news either.



I'll post more details online at www.sanantoniohams.org/blog next week as I
scrounge them up & get the facts confirmed, instead of just rumors.



Now back to rumor central...

HELP! Icom RS-BA1 software

Tom O'Brien
 

I have been working for a couple of days trying to get this software set up correctly.
The user manual is one of the most confusing I have ever encountered.

I can get the sofware to operate the radio on the attached machine, but can't get it to work over my LAN.

If there's somebody on on one of these mail lists that has experience with RS-BA1, I'd sure appreciate some help and advice.

Radio is Icom 756Pro3, all computers are running Win7 (no, this package won't run under Linux or OS X).

Sincerely,

AARO NEEDS YOUR HELP!- San Antonio Marathon this weekend!

Lee Besing
 

I'm sending this last minute call for help, to a list of AARO members,
former AARO members, and a few other lists.



YOUR HELP IS URGENTLY NEEDED! Free T-Shirts!



WE ONLY HALF THE ROUTE COVERED SO FAR!

Please contact Lee N5NTG direct at "lee@besing.com" to volunteer.



Please share this request with your ham friends!

Once again, AARO has been tasked with providing Hams to assist the San
Antonio Rock & Roll Marathon on Sunday, November 11, 2012 We don't have
much time to get this organized, but we need volunteers at every mile
marker, and a few other odd ball locations along the route. We need about 2
dozen (minimum) volunteers to staff each of the assigned positions. Duties
include picking up the timing clocks prior to the event, then being on-site
at your assigned location prior to 6am, ready to turn them on when Dave
Espinoza W5QS gives us the countdown over the radio. We'll send out exact
locations for those of you who sign up to work the event.

Most assignments require being up & on location way before the chickens even
think about waking up. Traffic is a mess, and gets worse the closer to
6:30am you are. Mile markers 1 thru 10 are assignments that get done
quicker, but you have to be there before 5:30am (or earlier) due to road
closures. We get "all access" passes, but you still end up stopping at
every barricade to talk with the cops, and explain why you need to get from
point A to point B.



Sunday, November 11th, is the annual San Antonio Rock & Roll Marathon, and
it's a fund raising event (so to speak) for the club. AARO receives a
donation in recognition of our assistance with deploying the timer clocks
and starting them when so advised by net control.



Friday, November 9th, at 6pm, is the time to pick up the timing clocks, from
the back parking lot at the Alamo Dome. That's Lot C, off Cherry Street.
If you take the Durango (or whatever the new name is) exit off hwy 37 / 281
in the downtown area, and go east over the big bridge to Cherry Street, you
will turn left (north) on Cherry Street and look for the sign saying "Lot
C". It will be barricaded off, likely with an off duty police officer or
security guard watching the entrance into the parking lot. I'll be on the
club's 147.38 repeater in case you need talk-in help.

Contact Lee via email at lee@besing.com to volunteer, or call him at
210-771-7075. Email preferred due to tracking of assignments. If you have
a preference on location, or limitation on time available for the day of the
event, please let us know. We'll assign locations on first come, first
serve, with preferences given for those asking for repeat locations from
previous years (to help minimize directional confusion).

A few of you have already contacted Lee for volunteering & we thank you.
Please confirm that you are on his list. We need your name, call sign,
cell phone #, email address, preferred location (or any limitations) & of
course your T-Shirt Size. Assignments will distributed via email, or in
person as needed.

Here's the plan, same as previous years:

1) AARO volunteers staff the start line and a minimum 22 clock locations
on race day.

2) Ideally, the volunteers have been pre-assigned a location based on
history, accessibility, comfort with location, time available to volunteer,
etc.

3) Volunteers report to the race compound in Alamodome Lot C at 6 p.m. on
Friday, Nov. 9. At that time, the volunteers will get their clock, case,
charger, tripod, course maps/specific location, passes, T-shirts, and any
additional instructions and information.

4) Race morning, one person reports to the start line area to broadcast
the race start (typically parking on the top floor of the parking garage at
Bowie and Market). All other volunteers drive directly to their post by 6
a.m. Note that the roads are closing earlier this year due to the inaugural
bike tour at 6:45 a.m.

5) Volunteers place clocks on the tripods at their mile location (mile
signs delivered by other course set-up crews) and stand by for race start at
7:30 a.m.

6) At the precise race start broadcast from the start (should be right at
7:30 a.m.), volunteers start their clock.

7) Volunteers park off the course, not in the roadway, but within sight
of the clock. During the race, you are there to watch the clock & of course
the racers.

8) Volunteers should know where closest medical station, water station,
and restrooms are on their course. They should see these when driving to
their location. If you see a medical problem, call the toll free 800
number that will be provided to you when you pick up your clock on Friday
night.

Do NOT transport the runners. Do NOT ask net control to make the call
unless you don't have a cell phone to call it yourself. NEVER GIVE A
RUNNER's NAME ON THE AIR! We use just bib #'s if we need to refer to a
runner at all, but net control won't have any direct contact with the race
officials, and we won't have anybody near the medical area, so use the cell
phone. We don't write the rules, we just have to observe them.

9) When the last runners go by (as indicated by the passing of the
official "tail vehicle") please return the clock to the case and break down
the tripod. The clock, case, and tripod will be picked up by one of the
course crews. Please do not leave the clock unattended after the race.

10) After their clock, case and tripod are picked up, your task is over.

All clocks started with the first runner start (should be 7:30am, not the
bike tour at 6:45 a.m. or the wheelchairs at 7:25 a.m.). If you have a
position that requires multiple clocks to be activated, turn them all on at
same time & then deploy to the designated sign locations or use multiple
persons. J

and more... Something for everybody!

Help is needed in the next 45 days for Amateur Radio Support at 5 public
service events. Please share this invitation with your club / group / other
hams! More details will be posted soon at www.sanantoniohams.org/blog (when
I get a few extra minutes). – Lee N5NTG

The following events are fun & easy to do. Contact person for these events,
unless indicated otherwise, will be Lee Besing N5NTG – 210-771-7075,
info@sanantoniohams.org <mailto:info%40sanantoniohams.org> for email. Email
contact is preferred, so we have a
written record of who volunteered for what event. J

· November 3rd – Saturday. Universal City Veterans Day Parade.
Probably use a UHF frequency, but that’s not a deal killer for those having
2 meter only. We’ll work around it. Hams need to report to UCPD office on
Universal City Blvd (off Pat Booker Road) around 8:30am, briefing starts at
9am. Free donuts. (Ironic, isn’t it? Go to a police department to get free
donuts…), move out on the route before 10am, start shutting down Pat Booker
upon signal via radio (put out barricades already in place, or park your car
sideways across a parking lot driveway, or put the barrier tape up,
whatever), and tell drivers they can go only toward Randolph AFB direction.
When signal given, PB is shut down totally, no traffic any direction,
usually around 10:20 or 10:25. Parade starts at 10:30am sharp, but lengthy
course down PB from UC Blvd almost to Randolph AFB will be long delays in
seeing parade. Once done, we usually go have a group lunch at a nearby
Mexican restaurant (closer to UC Blvd, on PB Road), cost is on your own.
Net Control is K5HCR – done by Lee Besing N5NTG. Repeater freq will be
shared with those who volunteered.

· November 3-4th – Saturday / Sunday. Tour de Gruene bike ride &
races from Gruene, Texas (north side of New Braunfels) up River Road thru
Sattler, and around. GVARC Ham Club coordinating this event. Saturday is a
multiple ride day, with the large family ride (longer route) starting early
in the morning, done by 2pm or so. Saturday afternoon is racing on River
Road, time trials. Sunday morning is Team Racing along River Road. Really
fast bicycle riding, known to have had accidents in the past. Hams watch for
problems and call in for support. The tour will start a 8:00am Saturday and
will go until about 1pm. There are 7 different routes this year, although
most are variations of 3 basic routes. There will be staggered starts every
10 minutes from 8:00am to 9:00am. The Individual Time Trial starts at 2pm
Saturday and will go until about 5pm. The route is different this year. The
start & finish are at Overlook Park, at the eastern end of Canyon Dam. The
10.5 mile loop includes FM 306, FM2673, and the South Access Road. The two
man time trial race on Sunday is unchanged. Riders start at 8:01am & go
every 30 seconds. They leave Gruene, ride up River Road, across 2763, and
return down 306 to Gruene. Note that Daylight Savings Time ends the morning
of the event. Volunteers usually get a t-shirt & a ticket to Wurstfest,
assuming they are available. Sometimes they run out. The URL is for more

· November 11th – Sunday. San Antonio Rock & Roll Marathon, downtown
SA. Probably use a 2 meter repeater, HT will cover most of the route except
southern end. We pick up the timer clocks on Friday night, 11/09 at 6pm,
behind the Alamo Dome. Move into assigned location (mile marker) before 6am
Sunday (might need to be earlier if near the front of the race course, due
to street closures). Race starts around 7:30am, won’t be over until around
2pm for those in the final 5-8 miles of the route. Hams put timer clocks at
their location(s) and wait for net control to give us the signal for the
start. Turn on the clocks, put them on their tripod mounts, and sit back to
watch the fun. Call in to the 800 # for any medical emergencies,
otherwise, we just run a loose net & enjoy the scenery. There will be a
bicycle ride / race on same route prior to the runners starting, so it’s
very important to be on your location way, way early. I also recommend
checking out the location on Saturday to be sure you can find it in the
dark. Mile markers are written on the payment with spray paint by the
curb. I’ll have exact descriptions for every mile marker / clock location.
Net Control is AA5RO – done by David Espinoza W5QS, starting as early as 5am
or so. Repeater freq will be shared with those who volunteered. We’ll get a
map posted online for assignment purposes, at www.sanantoniohams.org/blog
later this week.

· December 8th – Christmas Parade in Sattler, Texas. Need help
getting into the Christmas Spirit? Try a small town community Christmas
parade to get you started in the right mood! Hams needed to assist the
members of Hill Country REACT Team in coordinating the staging area for this
annual parade. Hams from the Hayes Caldwell Ham Club, GVARC and Travis
County REACT typically assist as well. We’ll use a 2 meter simplex, or a
UFH repeater, frequency to be provided to those who volunteered. We meet
for breakfast (if interested) at Startz Café in Startzville, and move over
to the staging area by 8am for assignments & deployment. Staging is on Old
Sattler Road, which runs parallel to the main highway thru Sattler. Parade
starts on the north end, by the feed store, runs 2+ miles south past River
Road to the de-staging area. Contact Wade Bolling, W5ERX,
w5erx@hillcountryreact.org <mailto:w5erx%40hillcountryreact.org> , or
w5erx@arrl.net <mailto:w5erx%40arrl.net> , or Lee Besing N5NTG. Net
Control will be K5HCR, operator to be determined.
