Re: Good small Li-ion battery for the radio "go pack"

George N2APB
 

The "product video" below the main photo (and mid-way down the web page too) describes that the power to the jump start cables turn off after 1 minute of non-use. 

In fact, this one "feature" confused me at first.  When you turn it on, its needs a constant load.  If the load goes away for a minute or two it shuts itself down to preserve battery life.  Not a problem, just something you have to keep in mind.

BTW, the The stated A-H capacity is much overstated, but it is fine to power an Elecraft K3 or the Yaesu FT-817 at 5 watts for several hours, with leftover juice to power the LED lamps during FDReally nice.

February meeting minutes

Attached are the minutes of the February TLARC meeting. Please review them and note the numerous upcoming events. See you on the 20th.

The March meeting is just around the corner

David Andrews
 

The TLARC meeting for March is just around the corner. Mark your calendars for Wednesday evening, March 20th at 7:00 at the Tellico Village Chota Recreation Center. This will be preceded by a dinner at Tansai Bar & Grill at 5:30. Please email me If you are interested in having dinner, as I’ll need to provide a headcount in advance to Tanasi.

 

Have you ever banged your head against the wall trying to figure out how to program the newest generation of portables? If so, then the March program is for you. Allen Tarbell will conduct an informal Baofeng programming workshop after the business meeting. Bring your radio and laptop if you have one. Please advise Allen if you’ll be participating and if you’re willing to assist him so that he knows what to expect and plan for.

 

See you on the 20th,

 

David Andrews, N1ESK, TLARC Secretary

TLARC minutes 2019-02-20 (final)

It was noted that the minutes were confusing at times since we have multiple
members with the same first names, so the final - final minutes are attached
with clarifications.

Thanks, David, N1ESK

Hello Radio Lovers,

Just in case you can't find anything to listen to on the local radio stations, this website will increase your choices:

Re: Radio Stations Around the World

How clever!  Get a list of all internet-streaming radio broadcast stations, add geo-location for each, and then overlay with interactive map (as done with Google Maps), and pump the “selected” streaming content to the computer’s sound card. Brilliant!

Thanks for the link, Oh Voice of the Village!

Adventures of the TLARC Fantastic Five in Episode 4: The Great Tower Retrieval

George N2APB
 

A gracious benefactor in Farragut recently provided TLARC with a wonderful tower, antenna and equipment.  Little did we know at the time that it was stored in the crawl space of his old home ... and we needed to retrieve it!

Visit our Activities web page <http://www.tlarc.org/Activities/Tower+Ant%20Retrieval%20(2019-03-24)/index.html> to see the exploits of the TLARC Fantastic Five as they plot and work to extract the precious hardware from the dark and dank recesses of Farragut for ultimate club use!

Upcoming TLARC Field Nut Event

Jim Anderson
 

Good morning, TLARC!

Saturday, April 20 marks the traditional first major QRP field event of the year - QRP To The Field. Rules are available at this link:


This year's theme is "Any Ole Park" and the TLARC Field Nuts plan to activate at Lenoir City Park overlooking the Fort Loudoun Dam. No specific times but I would anticipate the afternoon hours being prime for 40 and 20 meter propagation.

This event partners with Summits On The Air so there should be a number of SOTA activations that day to provide additional contact opportunities. Not sure about low power operating? Come on out and see what can be done with a full QRP gallon - 5 watts CW or 10 watts SSB. 

We hope to see you there - it's been a wet spring so let's hope for a nice day on the 20th!

72, Jim - K0RGI 

Re: Upcoming TLARC Field Nut Event

Interesting, I always thought that QRP was 5W or less regardless of mode.  There is some discussion about this variable on Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QRP_operation#Practice

I'm not sure about that date offhand but so far looks good.  You may want to send a reminder the day before as well.

GPS Clock Workshop a big success!

George N2APB
 

What a great time we had on Saturday, April 6.  Some 14 members gathered at N2APB's home and assembled their GPS Clock Kits in the first-ever TLARC Workshop!  Eight of us got the kit built and working without a flaw, while 3 others had some repairable issues, and 3 others had time-crunch issues in completing theirs.

Those getting Gold Stars on their TLARC Certificates for participating in the Workshop include:  Dave N1ESK, Emily KB1NXN, Barry K8NWB, Brent K4BNN, David KN4LMM, George WB9TFR, Mike KK6OKU, Juan AC6ZM, Randy WK9M, Sam KV4XY, Gary KN4TRV (who just passed his General exam!), Alan K1AT, David KF4DKW and Jim K0RGI.


This has been an incredible accomplishment for all ... Way to go!

See some photos on our web page ...

Re: GPS Clock Workshop a big success!

 

Great news! Glad everyone had a good time.

One question....... why wasn't this "workshop" posted on the group website, or here, for those who couldn't attend the last meeting? I am sure more would have attended.

As usual, thanks for putting this on. Hopefully, there will be another session for the ones who couldn't attend.
