Re: Upcoming TLARC Field Nut Event

Good morning, TLARC.

The weather forecast for tomorrow is looking quite miserable and I'm cancelling my participation in the QRP To The Field event. The predicted 50 degree high temperature isn't terrible, but the accompanying rain is a show-stopper for me. Have fun if you decide to set up at Lenoir City Park and operate.

72/73, Jim - K0RGI

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!

TLARC,

Alternate location is the weather is not cooperating is the Tugaloo Beach cabana at noon. QRP to the field will coincide with the Michigan QSO Parry. The TLARC repeater will be monitored during the event.

Keep Ham Radio Open for Our Youth

Brad (the Voice of the Village) Berger
 

Here is an interesting article concerning the current situation with ham radio at the FCC and keeping the frequencies available for future hobbyist.

https://www.rrmediagroup.com/Features/FeaturesDetails/FID/917

The Voice of the Village has spoken.

Kenwood TS-520 SSB Transceiver Available

Brad (the Voice of the Village) Berger
 

Fellow TLARC members,

In my possession is a Kenwood TS-520 transceiver in the box. It covers 3.5 - 29.7 MHz (80 thru 10 meters) and has an internal power supply and I have a mic for it.
Here is more detailed information: http://www.rigpix.com/kenwood/ts520.htm

It has been recently tested by fellow TLARC member Dave Johnson AE0E and here are his findings:

Brad,

 

Power output on the TS520 in CW is as follows (into a dummy load).  It appears the finals (6146 tubes) are probably okay though extended use for several hours would be a better test.  (Power drop as frequency goes up is fairly typical).  I also looked at the transmit signal with my spectrum analyzer and it looks clean. 

 

80 Meters: 103 Watts

40 Meters: 98 Watts

20 Meters: 93 Watts

15 Meters: 89 Watts

10 Meters: 83 Watts

If anyone can use this radio for themselves, they may have it. The intent is for you to get on-the-air and not someone else or for it to be sold. Let me know if you're interested.  Brad  KM4OJK

May meeting is just around the corner...

David Andrews
 

Good morning,

 

The May meeting of the Tellico Lake Amateur Radio Club is just around the corner. Please check your schedules, and if you have anything booked for the evening of May 15th, cancel it. We’re going to start the planning for Field Day 2019, the biggest weekend of the year for hams, so anything else will just have to wait.

 

The gastronomes amongst us will meet up for some Italian food and fine conversation at Little Italy at 316 Lakeside Plaza at 5:15 PM. The dinner time has been moved up 15 minutes from the past to ensure we all have time to relax, eat, and make the meeting on time.  

 

Attached are the draft minutes of the April TLARC meeting for your review.

 

Thanks,

 

David Andrews, N1ESK

Small Battery for Portable Ops

George N2APB
 

I have a small, new-in-the-box, "Viking" Lithium-Ion power pack (battery) from Harbor Freight that is perfect for powering a low-power transceiver (HF or vhf/uhf), charging your HT or cell phone out in the field, or for use as a strong flashlight.

It's rated at 12,000 mA-hr capacity and claims to also being able to jump start your car (which is all specmanship), but it works great for our ham radio purposes.  Being Lithium-based, it charges fast, has no "memory" on capacity, and delivers full power up to a cliff drop-off point.  

(I already have one like this and it powers my QRP radio (FT-817) all day long on receive as I do the day job here in the shack.  I wanted another as a backup, so I took advantage of a good deal from Harbor Freight.  Meanwhile, I purchased a different battery (LiFePO4 chemistry), which is more expensive and greater size and capacity but it suits my needs a bit better ... which is why I now want to sell this Viking power pack ... below cost.)

Anyway, it's item # 62749 at Harbor Freight <https://www.harborfreight.com> and a photo of the battery is attached here.  As you see, it's on sale for $64 (regularly $79) ... but you can buy it from me for $50.  The box has never been opened, and also contains a nice carry case, and some hand jumpers & adapters.  I'm here' in Tellico Village for quick 'n easy pickup.  No shipping charge! ;)

Let me know if interested.

PS:  Our club president has one of these Viking power packs and likes using it.  I stand behind it as well.

Daring Antenna & Tower Recovery Efforts Thwart Current Sunspot Minima

George N2APB
 

Several weeks ago, an elite team of TLARC'ers when out to Oakdale TN (Morgan County) to take down a huge tower and antenna array generously donated to the club by Bill Radice K4OWR.  (Thank you Bill!!)

A daring, death-defying adventure ensued that resulted in successfully reducing the entropy of the world by a little bit ... and thus gaining some wonderful electromagnetic radiation apparatus that is expected to be put into service later this year at an as-yet undisclosed location.


See the photo essay of this extraordinary team ... the likes of which hasn't been seen since the explosive depiction in the 1961 movie classic: "The Guns of Navarone".

You should also check out the ever-growing and unending pictorial of TLARC adventures stylistically recreated on our club website by the genius of our webmaster extraordinaire! ... http://www.tlarc.org/

LAst call fro dinner Wednesday

David Andrews
 

We need a final head count for Little Italy this Wednesday evening at 5:15 pm. Come join the gang for some good food and conversation before our TLARC monthly meeting. If you haven’t dropped me a line, I need to hear from you soon.

 

Many thanks,
