Here’s the next round of the N9FN inventory reduction sale items!

 

  • Icom IC-7000 HF/VHF/UHF transceiver with LDG AT-7000 antenna tuner made specifically for the Icom 7000.   I purchased this radio when starting to do QSO parties.    Shortly after I purchased it (new), I got a deal on a used Icom 756 Pro 2 for my home station and started using my 756 Pro for the QSO parties.    I kept the IC-7000 and AT-7000 in a pelican case as an emergency spare but never needed to use it.   The radio probably has about 25 hours of use on it.   As with all of my equipment, it’s always been in a non-smoking, non-pet environment and is in pristine condition.    It comes with the original box, manual, microphone, power cable and also the coax jumper and interface cable for the AT-7000 tuner.    In addition to be an HF +6 meter rig, it is a 2 meter and 70cm all mode rig as well.    It looks like $900 is a fair price for both the radio and tuner combo.

 

  • Icom 706 MKIIg HF/VHF/UHF transceiver.    This is the HF rig I ran mobile.    It’s made a lot of mobile QSO’s but still has a lot of QSO’s left in it.    The Buick (on my QRZ.com page) had a great place to mount a couple of radios.   My new Honda CR-V, not so much.   It comes with original box, FL-223 1.9K SSB and FL232 350 Hz CW filters installed, original Microphone, original power cord (shortened and power poles added) and original printed manual.     $700

 

  • Icom V-8000 2 meter mobile rig.    Selectable 75w, 25w, 10w or 5w power output.   This is a very heavy duty rig and it is one of the few that have a front firing speaker.    I bought it to monitor simplex frequencies during QSO parties for mobiles coming through.    Turns out that most of the mobiles with 2 meters were running APRS so they weren’t on 2m simplex.   Comes with original box, manual, power cord and microphone.    $100

 

  • Azden PCS-7500H 6 meter FM rig.   50 watt rig I bought used many years ago.   The radio works great.   Programming is not intuitive, but is well documented in the manual.   Comes with the original box, manual, power cord and microphone.  $90.

 

  • Icom 275A 2 meter all mode rig.   This is a 25 watt radio with 120 volt AC power supply built in that my Dad owned.   Many years ago I sent it in to Icom for minor repairs and it was gone through and met all specs when returned.   I made a couple of 2M SSB QSO’s with it then put it on the shelf, so it’s only had an hour or two of use since it was returned from Icom.    I now have an Icom 9700 that makes this radio surplus to my needs.   I’ve seen prices all over the place for these radios.     I do NOT have the original box, but it does come with the original microphone and manual.   It uses a standard computer power cord, included as well.   Asking $300 but will consider offers.

 

  • Cushcraft A3S – 3 element 10/15/20 meter beam.    I purchased this to use on the van, check my qrz.com page for a picture of the beam in use.   The beam was used for several field days, so it was only up for 2 days at a time and used at 100w max, then stored in a large PVC pipe container in my garage, so very minimal use and minimal exposure to the weather.   It also has stainless steel hardware.     New price is $799 at DXE https://www.dxengineering.com/parts/csh-a3s and is 6 months out on shipping.    Asking $400.

 

Let me know if you’re interested.    I’ll post on eHam in a few days but would prefer to sell locally.   I’ll be more than happy to demonstrate any of the rigs and show that they are fully functional as well.

Items for sale

Dave Chasey
 

 

I have a few items for sale now that I thought I’d list locally before posting to eHam’s classifieds.   Pictures are attached, but if they don’t make it through the mailing list, email me and I’ll send them directly.

 

DV Dongle – a USB device that allows you to connect to the DSTAR network through the internet using a laptop or desktop computer without a radio or DSTAR repeater.    I purchased it new a LONG time ago for $199 and used it a couple of times, then put it on the shelf.   It’s in the original box and looks brand new.  $100.00 shipped, or may consider knocking off a few bucks if I don’t have to ship it.

 

Yaesu  FT-60R dual band Handheld that comes with the original box, manual and drop in charger.    Also included are an extra AA battery pack to install your own AA batteries especially for emergency communications, 12 volt cigarette lighter charger, and Heil HT headset for Yeasu HT’s.     I paid $229.80 for these items from R&L and that’s still the current price from them.    I was going to use the radio for portable satellite operations, but I’m using the 9700 instead.    I programmed the radio and tested it, but never used it so it’s in pristine condition.     $199.00 plus actual shipping cost if I have to ship it.

 

Heil Traveler headset with Icom round 8 pin and Icom Modular adapters.    Will work with most Icom round pin radios, and the other adapter will work with the Icom 706, 7000, etc.      I paid $83.95 for the headset, $17.95 for the Icom 706 adapter, and $17.95 for the 8 pin round adapter for a total of $119.85.   A unique feature of this headset is it has a PTT and the up/down switches in the cord.     I used it a few times with the IC-706 and the IC-7000 and it worked great.    It also works great with most Icom radios with the 8 pin round connector, but the 9700’s mic jack has low level audio out and requires a hardware modification to get headphone level at the mic jack, so I went with a different headset for the 9700.    I’d like $90.00 for it with both adapters, plus shipping if I need to ship it.

 

Please let me know if you’re interested in any of the items.    If I don’t hear anything in a few days I’ll post them to eHam.

 

Thanks and 73,

Dave – N9FN

World’s Smallest Moon Lander from Japan will Put Ham Radio Transmitter on the Moon

12/09/2021

Japan’s OMOTENASHI, the world’s smallest moon lander, will have an X-band and UHF communication system, although it will not carry an amateur band transponder. OMOTENASHI is a 6U CubeSat set for launch via a NASA SLS rocket as early as February 2022. It will have a mission period of from 4 to 5 days. The name is an acronym for Outstanding Moon Exploration Technologies demonstrated by Nano Semi-Hard Impactor. Wataru Torii of the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Ham Radio Club, JQ1ZVI, said radio amateurs can play a role in gathering data from the spacecraft.

The spacecraft is made up of two separable components, both having independent communication systems — an orbiting module and a surface probe. The orbiting module will take the surface probe to the moon. It will transmit beacon or digital telemetry data on UHF (437.31 MHz). The surface probe — the moon lander — will transmit digital telemetry or three-axis acceleration analog-wave with FM modulation on UHF (437.41 MHz). Transmitter power will be 1 W in both cases.

“If we succeed in receiving the UHF signal from the surface probe, we could know the acceleration data on the impact on the moon and the success of the landing sequence,” Torii explained.

“We already have a station for uplink and downlink at Wakayama in Japan — used as an EME [moonbounce] station. However, if the satellite is invisible from Japan, we cannot receive the downlink signal. So, we need a lot of help from ham radio stations worldwide.” Torii noted that the RF system on the lander only operates on UHF.

The orbiting module beacon will transmit on 437.31 MHz using PSK31. The surface probe beacon will transmit on 437.41 MHz using FM, PSK31, and PCM-PSK/PM.

Bill Somerville, G4WJS and key programmer of WSJT-X, SK

David, N9KT

To: WSJTX@groups.io
Subject: [WSJTX] Bill Somerville, G4WJS, SK #general

I am very sorry to convey the sad news that Bill Somerville, G4WJS, died suddenly and unexpectedly a few days ago.  He was only about 65 years old.

Bill was a dear friend and very close colleague, though (as is often the case with worldwide ham radio friendships) we had met in person only a few times.  In 2013 he was the first to join me in forming a core development group for WSJT-X, which at that time was at program version 0.99.  Bill has been closely involved with WSJT-X and related software projects ever since.

Our free, open-source software could not have achieved its extensive worldwide popularity and influence in ham radio without Bill's essential contributions.  In addition to writing code for important portions of the Qt-based user interface for WSJT-X, Bill helped to bring the overall program structure more nearly up to professional standards.  Moreover, he devoted countless hours to program support, patiently answering user's questions on WSJT-related forums.

I have only started to think about the many ways in which I will miss Bill -- not to mention how we all will miss his immense and positive impact on WSJT-X and related projects.  For more than eight years Bill and I communicated closely and regularly on ham radio topics, sometimes many times per day.  Perhaps I will be able to write more about it in the near future.

Rest in peace, dear friend G4WJS.
