This is a little off topic.

Is anyone looking for ham friendly property to buy around the Austin, TX
area?

I am in the process of moving out of state for work and to be closer to my
family. My wife and I are selling our house with 9.82 acres, and no
restrictions or HOA's and can be ag-exempted. This place is perfect for a
ham station and antenna farm and is priced to sell as we need to move by
December 15th.

If you are interested please email me direct at KC9FOZ @ hotmail.com.

Thanks,
Tom

Seguin Repeater 146.76- pl 141.3

L. Upton <k1stx@...>
 

As of 12:36 p.m. Saturday September 26, 2009, Chaparral Amateur Radio Club aka Guadalupe County ARES would like to announce the re-birth of the .76 repeater! As many know, the .76 in Seguin has a special place in history, and is close to the hearts of many in the area. It was important to many, that this repeater pair stay with CARC and in Seguin.

Special Thanks go to Jeremy Davenport - KE5ELI, Don Kirchner - W5DK, and David Floyd - WD5IEH for their contributions in time, equipment and expertise completing the project. Over the last several months, this group of dedicated Amateurs has been working on this project, and today, the 146.76 was brought back to life, better than ever. The overall goal, upon installation of the new antenna (still 1 1/2 months from delivery) and some minor tweaks, is to have a strong and reliable wide area coverage repeater, that can be enjoyed by all, and provide valuable communications links during public service and disaster events! An IRLP node is in the works, as well as RF linking capability with another link system, to be used during emergency's and public service activities!

The current antenna is actually temporary, while waiting for the new one to come in, and considering, this antenna at some point or another suffered a lightning strike, we already have good signal reports from Canyon Lake and Bulverde areas! We would appreciate signal reports or lack of, from all areas surrounding Seguin including Bexar, Wilson, Comal, Hays and anywhere else. The repeater is open to all licensed Amateurs, and is available for groups to use during public services events and activities. Put it though the paces, and lets see what it will do!

The repeater is on 146.76 negative offset, with a 141.3 pl


Please e-mail your reports to jeremy@heitx.com or to k1stx@yahoo.com


CARC/GCARES will be scheduling regular nets in the near future.

Thank you again to all involved with the project!

To the HAM community,

I was just informed by Gordon Dial, K5SUZ, that his dear companion Liliane Bell, KC5AQP passed this morning. Liliane is well known to the San Antonio HAM community being a long time volunteer with the Bike to the Beach and other amateur radio activities. We have all been aware of her struggles of late but it does not make her passing any easier for us.

She will have a grave side service at Ft. Sam Houston, however the exact date and time has not been set. I will let everyone know when I have that information.

Our sympathies, condolences and prayers go out to Gordon and all of Liliane's friends, loved ones and family.

Milton, N5HMJ

Stolen Ham Gear

Shane O'Neal <shane@...>
 

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry to report that my vehicle was broken in to. They got the following
equipment:

- Yaesu FT-857
- Yaesu FT-7800
- 2 MFJ Mighty-Lite 25 amp switching power supplies
- 2 Puxing VHF handhelds
- Rigid Cordless Drill
- Ryobi bit set
- ECG soldering gun

The radios and power supplies were marked with my call sign (NS5D). A police
report has been filed.

Please be on the lookout for this stuff. If you do end up buying it off
someone, at least get a good price 'cause they didn't pay a cent. ;)

There have been a rash of "smash-and-grab" car burglaries in San Antonio. I
thought if I kept my stuff out of sight in a box in the back of my truck, it
would not be noticed. No dice. If you come to SA, don't leave anything you
want to keep in your vehicle.

73,
Shane NS5D

Re: Another SARC's hamfest

Lee Besing
 

http://www.shelbyhamfest.org/hamfest.htm

Shelby Amateur Radio Club in North Carolina, 2 day event similar in
scope to HamCom in Plano apparently. Happening this Labor Day
weekend on Saturday / Sunday. Their list of forums is still rather
skimpy, but their list of vendors sure isn't.

List of vendors here. http://www.shelbyhamfest.org/vendors09.htm

I also noted from the various pages of their site, that they also
involved multiple ham clubs, just like we (SARC San Antonio) does and
to a greater extent, like HamCom Plano does. Locally, we have had
REACT assisting with Talk-in for the past 12-15 years, and SARC has
extended an open invitation to other clubs to have displays,
etc. ROOST in the form of their current president Erik Rabe, has
had a presence, and the Bexar County ARES in recent years has
supported it by providing the ARES "Beast" comm vehicle.

In Plano, the outdoor flea market is run each day by a different ham
club. One club does talk-in, another does the outdoor flea market /
tailgate area, and the next day it reverses. One neat feature, is
the club doing the outdoor flea market area, gets the revenue from it
that day. At $8/slot with 100 slots max, that potential revenue
apparently was enough incentive for those neighboring clubs to get
involved in the event. Of course attendance at Plano is measured in
the thousands. They had 3k admission tickets printed (@ $10 each),
sold almost out on Friday, and had to print more overnight for
Saturday. What a neat problem to have!

Tony fundraising for 7-year-old Mallory

Shane O'Neal <shane@...>
 

Team,

Many of us on these lists work either the BP MS150 Houston to Austin or the
BikeMS Ride to the River (formerly Bike to the Beach). And many of us know,
or have heard of Tony Ralf KE5ZTZ, the flambouyant VP of the National MS
Society, who is known for pulling stunts like dyeing his hair or shaving his
head every year to amuse his corporate and individual sponsors for an
extra $2K to fight MS.

Last year he rode a bike in the event in memory of his sister, Pauline. She
suffered most of her life from MS, but passed away last year due to cancer.
We hams tracked him every step of the way and provided up to the minute
status reports on his progress, which were followed by his loyal but
concerned staff who didn't want to see him end up as roadkill.

Because of his cheery disposition and crazy antics, few people would suspect
the tragedy that had befallen Tony before he came to work at the MS Society.
On September 11, 2001, the World Trade Center collapsed onto the building
that Tony worked in as a financial reporter, and killed most of his
coworkers. It also put him out of a job, which is how he and his wife ended
up in Texas. He started in a lowly position with the MS Society and worked
his way up to VP in a relatively short time, because he devoted all his
energy and passion to his work. I have come to observe that Tony is a deeply
caring and extremely powerful person, who is an eternal optimist despite
events which would have broken lesser men.

I started out working these events because I love to use my radio.
Fundraising for charity was a good cover, but I really wouldn't have worked
the event the first few times if it hadn't given me a convenient excuse to
practice my art. But as I have come to know Tony better over the years, and
seen how much he personally has at stake in the cause of MS, I've started to
feel a personal connection to the event that transcends even the joy of
managing a high speed tactical net with 60+ operators that spans 150 miles
of perilous, pothole ridden asphalt.

Ironically, Tony has also come to know hams better over the years and has
developed a keen interest in what we do. So much so that he studied hard and
got his license last year. The first year I worked the event, I was his ham
"shadow". Last year, I was his Elmer, and this year, he is his own shadow.

Please come work either event with us if you can. It is good practice for
ARES operators, and is what gave me the skills I needed to be useful in
Houston last year after Ike.

If you can't work the event, but would still like to help out, read the
message below. If you're not crying by now, you will.

73,
Shane NS5D

[image: Bike MS - bike to create a world free of MS] [image: An
unforgettable ride. An unbeatable destination. Bike to create a world free
of MS.] Was it destiny or divine intervention? I was born in 1955 and so
was the Lone Star Chapter of the National MS Society. I'm now employed by
that chapter! My single-minded focus is finding a cure for this disease. I
draw strength from my Champion 7-year-old Mallory Reid, who has lived with
this disease for more than half of her life.

Her innocence is spiritual. She walks through life without her daddys hand
anymore, he (Kelly) passed away 2 years ago. But proud mom, Michelle, has
instilled in her daughter an amazing strength for one so young.

I'll be working very hard with my colleagues and volunteers at the Bike MS:
Valero 2009 Alamo Ride to the River fundraiser on Oct. 3-4 this year, and
I've decided to try and fundraise as well! I'll be wearing a "Champs" blue
bandana, which Mallory has signed for me, and I will carry a
46-pound-weighted backpack (that's how much "Mal" weighs) throughout the
bike weekend as a physical reminder of her and the 400,000 Americans living
with this disease.

So what's the return on your investment beyond knowing you've helped move us
closer to a world free of multiple sclerosis? At the point my fundraising
passes $2,500, I will dye (permanent color) my hair PINK, because that's
Mallory's favorite color, and so bring a smile to her gorgeous face! So
give, give, give if you take pleasure in me looking silly in public! I'll
keep the color through the end of the ride on Oct. 4, and post a photograph
on my Facebook for your review...

I've created team "Mallory's Posse" as a rallying cry for my fundraising, I
am not riding this year, but working alongside my colleagues and thousands
of volunteers to make our new ride a huge success. Internet links below will
take you to my personal pages where you can read more about dear Mallory.

Please support Mallory's cause and so donate to my fundraising, every small
amount is gratefully received, and every dollar will make a difference! This
year more than ever people living with MS need our financial help, because
the financial burden of this disease will be even greater as we all work our
way through the current economic challenge.
