locked Anyone Going to/Coming back from Kansas


Don Jones
 

Hello everyone,

Real good to hear, from all of you, it has been about fourteen years since I have been on the air.

Buried both parents and all children are doing very well with their lives and families.

Looking to rebuild my Ham Shack, as someone kind of borrowed my equipment on a permanent bases.

So, slow but sure, I am, going forward with rebuilding my station.

Sad, there is nothing local. :-(

Guess, I will have to do some research, and a lot of driving.

There used to be a Saturday morning get-together around breakfast time early AM.

Does anyone know, if this is still happening?

Know, that I and Greg, are currently talking, and that I sincerely, appreciate each and every one of your responses.

Old call, sure most of you, have figured it out already, was N5WSW and now W5JX.

My late father's old callsign.

73 to all.

Thank you,

Dear Don W5JX,

The closest store is HRO in the Dallas area. Main Trading Company is probably next closest in Paris, TX.

D-Star does exist in San Antonio. The website repeaterbook.com shows at least one VHF and 4 UHF repeaters in San Antonio. The VHF one is run by Alamo Area Repeater Organization (AARO) whose call sign is aa5ro.

I hope this helps.

Sincerely,

Hell, all,

 

Off topic a little.

 

Where is the closest Ham Radio store to purchase a good 2M/VHF/UHF radio?

 

And, how active is D-Star or is it D-Link, in SA?

 

Trying to slowly, rebuilt my ham shack.

 

Appreciate any, and all responses.

 

If it's in Texas I will travel.

 

Otherwise, it looks like order online. :-(

 

Callsign is now W5JX.

D-STAR does exist in San Antonio. Here is some info to get you going:

The San Antonio Digital Radio Club runs several:

AARO also runs one:

You can also create a hotspot rather easily and have access to the entire DSTAR network from wherever you are at. I use one at home and take it on the road whether RVing or staying in Hotels.

Hope that helps!
