I did a call in on Wednesday on their FEMA topic and there was a short but
very positive discussion about ham radio. Maybe that sewed a few seeds.

Possibly, someone finally, got busy within the Club

W5SC; if not at least it was a plus for Amateur Radio.

Have a great Day!

I gave out several Cd's that had the Public Service
announcement to several clubs in the hill country and
in San Antonio, as well as giving out links on the web
over VHF CTTN Net. Don't really care how just glad it
happened.

Field Day Preparations Are Underway

K5OLE <davidftx@...>
 

Field Day is set for this Saturday and Sunday at Shavano Park City
Hall, just north of DeZavala on NW Military Hwy.

I need some help.

I have exchanged the two club generators for two new units and I need
to get them gassed, oiled, and running before Saturday. They are a
tad heavy and are crated in the back of my pick up. I need someone to
just help me get them down out of the truck. 10 minutes or less.

If anyone can meet me at KCOMM today to help me unload, please give me
a call on my celular, 210-710-8721 or email me at
davidftx@.... You pick the time.

Thanks for your help! See you at Field Day.

David Freiberger
K5OLE


Generators Delivered, Thanks to Those who Offered to Help

K5OLE <davidftx@...>
 

John Ryan, W5JLR, helped me get the generators off of the truck.
Thank you John.

More Field Day assistance is still needed.

Friday at 4:00pm we will need a couple of people at KCOMM to load the
generators, the shelter, and other necessities. We will then meet at
Shavano Park to set up those the shelter and maybe a couple of
antennas. We will not leave the generators or radios there overnight.

Saturday at 8:00am will be the BIG setup at Shavano Park City Hall.
Please help if you are available.

We will be on the air at 1:00pm with two stations.

Hamburgers and Hot Dogs will be about 6:00pm. All are welcome.

Arizona ARES requests clear frequencies if needed for fire emergency
(Jun 22, 2006) -- Given the heavy HF activity anticipated during
Field Day weekend, Arizona Section Emergency Coordinator Rick Aldom,
W7STS, has requested that radio amateurs steer clear of the ARES net
frequencies of 7248 kHz (days) and 3992 kHz (night) and The Salvation
Army Team Emergency Radio Network (<http://www.satern. org/>SATERN)
frequency of 3977.7 kHz. These frequencies may be used for Arizona
fire-related emergency traffic, if necessary. He notes that since the
HF operation would employ NVIS (near-vertical incidence skywave)
antennas, stations outside Arizona may not be able to hear any
emergency nets. Aldom says he expects that most emergency
communication will take place on VHF and UHF repeaters, however.

Lee,
I don't know what e-mail client you are using but there may be another option. In Mozilla Thunderbird, there is an option of setting specific addresses that will be converted from HTML to plain text. I not sure but I THINK that even Microsoft Outlook 2000 (and later) has a similar capability.

FW: Big Bend Marathon

Charles Land
 

On January 14, 2007 the 3rd annual marathon is planned in Big Bend
National Park. This is one area of the country where cell phones don't work
at all, so all communications is via ham radio. It takes about 24 amateur
operators to support this event. I have co-ordinated the ham operators for
the last two years, and we usually have about equal support form the locals
there and from San Antonio and Austin.
If you would like to join this event (or consider it), please let me
know and I'll put you on my email list for further news. For the present,
you can see the info on the race at bigbend50.com.
Those who like the Big Bend area have a great time at this event.
We usually leave SA and arrive in Big Bend on Friday. We have a comm. check
Saturday afternoon, and the race is Sunday. Race HQ is in Rio Grande
Village, a camp ground on the East side of the park. There is only camping
there (no motel rooms). There are rooms at the Lodge in the Chisos - about
20 miles away, and they are nice and a little pricey (about $100 a nite) and
there are rooms in Terlingua/Study Butte, which is about 50 miles away.
Most of us return to SA on Monday, but some stay a few extra days out there.
We usually have group meals Friday nite, Saturday morning and evening, and
there is a victory party Sunday that volunteers are invited to. Rio Grande
Village is at about 1700 feet ASL, so the weather isn't as bitter as it is
in the Chisos (which are about 5000 feet ASL). The average is around
freezing at night, and in the 60s during the day - but this is desert
country - not that many average days.
It is a gorgeous area - usually the weather is nice, but it can be
anything that time of year. A photographer's paradise - bring cameras!!
The organizers and runners are great people to work with and are all out
there to have a good time. Usually, those who want to camp in the group
camping area with the HQ staff can do so for free.
Ordinarily, I wouldn't bother anyone with notice this far in
advance, but a trip of this magnitude does require some planning. So think
about it and let me know. In past years, we have used 2M, and the Big Bend
ARC crew has brought in a couple of portable, linked repeaters which give us
excellent coverage out there. We have attempted hf or simplex backup, but
haven't done much with it. The run is capped at 200 runners. Last year
there were about 120. So we'll probably reach the cap this year. Much of
the race is on roads that are accessible by 4 wd or high clearance 2wd
vehicles. Small parts of it are 4 wd only. These trails are not maintained
this time of year, so if there are heavy rains in the late fall, some of the
roads may be impassable - or at least a challenge to the 4wd crews.

Another Field Day is in the Log

K5OLE <davidftx@...>
 

Field Day 2006 is over and the antennas are down. The San Antonio
Radio Club ran three stations until a little after 3:00am when it
dropped to two and then quickly to one. By sun up we were back to
three. Most contacts were on 20 Meters with 40 close behind. We
did well on 80 at night, thanks to Pat, AD5BR. We had a few
contacts on 15 Meters, but 10 was tough. W5SC had contact with all
the lower 48 except Maine, most of the Canadian Provinces, and a few
DX stations. All in all, 27 hams dropped by to talk about
operating, think about operating, or actually sit down and operate.

I'm combining the logs tonight and will post the final results over
the weekend.

All the setting up and taking down help was appreciated. A special
thanks to Mike Check, K5UCQ, and Richard Elder, KB5ACN, for their
extra effort.

Thanks to everyone who participated.

San Antonio Hams Web Site Updates

Lee Besing
 

I've updated www.SanAntonioHams.org web site with more info about future / past Volunteer Events, Amateur Radio News (including ARES Trip to CC) and other info. Added a new calendar starting with July 2006 events to make it easier to find when activities are happening.

Visit web site for more details. Send me any events or news that I may have missed to "info@..." address so I can post them for you. I love photos as well.

The maximum power allowed when transmitting telecommand signals to
radio controlled models is 1 watt. A label indicating the licensee's
call sign and address must be affixed to the transmitter when sending
commands to a radio control model using amateur frequencies.
Picture needed is < Model Plane and Transmitter with License Tag>

Radio direction finding (RDF) is used to locate transmitters, RF
noise, interference and jamming. Radio direction finding can be used
to find lost and downed airplanes, lost hikers and boats in
distress. A directional antenna is most useful for hidden
transmitter hunting.

The penalties for making a false emergency call include having your
license revoked, a large fine and prison term.
