I also joined the meeting and entered the wait room at 7 PM to no avail. Left it up for a while and terminated around 7:30 PM.  I assumed Rosendo was busy with something else and had to forego the meeting.  Hope all is well.

moderated Another COVID-19 related "casualty"

Lee Besing
 

It is with a sad heart that I am letting everybody know that the 2020 BikeMS: Valero Ride to the River bicyling event, previously scheduled for October 3rd and 4th, has become a casualty as a result of the covid-19 crisis.

The National MS Society plans to hold a virtual event to raise funds for the national MS Society on October 17th.

Therefore there will be no need this year for ham radio volunteers to staff SAG Vehicles, rest stops, net control, or shadows for event officials.  It also means no free tshirts for you this year.

The Wildflower 100 bicycle ride normally held in April during Fiesta, had been rescheduled for November of this year, but the Fiesta Commission pulled the plug a while back on all Fiesta events.

This means that we will not be having any major bicycle rides in the San Antonio area until 2021.

There may be an opportunity with some of the larger bike teams or clubs holding events on weekends, who might welcome some extra SAG support, ect, but that would be using your personal vehicles. I have not been requested by anyone to provide such support so far this year.

If any Public Service events do pop up between now and the end of the year, like the Veterans Day Parade in Universal City on the first Saturday of the month, I will post it to SanAntoniohams.Org as soon as I find out.

Jim Hargrave
 

Bob,

Underground cables has some major advantages:

Lower receiver noise

Extends cable life

Wiring hidden from neighbors

Etc…

 

Don’t forget to install cable Pull  wire. (Twice the pipe length)

 

Above all…Have fun.

I am thinking to do something similar, but running cable underground after conduit exits the external wall.
