Contact for the Tellico Computer folks?

Ben Poff
 

Hey y'all ... at the June meeting someone mentioned something about the Tellico Village computer club (?). It just so happens I need to get in touch with those folks regarding some computer support. I had those contacts previously in the Nextdoor social app ... but my MacBook hard-drive crashed ... hence my need to get in touch with them. The irony is overwhelming at this point! Anyhow, they helped me a couple of years ago with my wife's iMac, so that's how I know about them. Does anyone have an email address that would get me in touch?

I appreciate your time and effort!

See everyone next week!

Latest Solar Storm Forecast ... Signs of Solar Cycle 25 starting

George N2APB
 

I enjoy periodically checking out the latest solar conditions by viewing these short videos to help me understand how the current Solar activity is affecting our communications across the spectrum.   Flux levels, and X-class  M-class, B-class flares and more all contribute to our MUF (minimum usable frequencies) at any point in the day. 

This video is a regular installment by Tabitha Skov, the Space Weather Woman.at www.Patreon.com ... and we're making this video readily accessible at the top of our TLARC home page

Let me know if you enjoy this new Space Weather feature we're starting now on the TLARC website!

George - a very nice addition to the website! I occasionally read excerpts from her reports in the ARRL propagation newsletter but had never seen her videos. Kind of reminds me of Dr. Jack Horkheimer's Star Gazer shows on PBS in years past, but with an amateur radio emphasis. 

Well done!

Sad news

David Andrews
 

I received this post from my friends in New England this morning.

 

Joseph's shack....

Hello Everyone,

With great regret, I'm emailing all IRS members past and present to pass along some sad news. On Saturday, 7/27, Joseph  Areyzaga/K1JGA was killed in a tower accident in Deerfield, NH. Also injured in this tragedy was Michael Rancourt/K1EEE ... no further information was available on Mike's condition. From what I understand, Joe was assisting Mike in disassembling the tower when it collapsed causing both of them (while wearing safety harnesses) and the tower to crash to the ground.

I never met Joe but his presence on the 85 repeater will certainly be missed by all of us. Please join me in conveying our deepest condolences to Joe's family and friends.

If I receive any updates on Mike's condition or funeral arrangements for Joe, I will be sure to pass the information along.

Re: Sad news

Jim Jenkins
 

Thank-you for the information Dave. My home in New Hampshire is Derry which is where the 85 repeater is located. I’m not active on the 85 repeater but am close to it. Deerfield is about 30 miles north of my location. I’ve helped take a tower down and it can be a very dangerous under taking.

Hope all is well.

Regards,

AA1J

Jim

This group needs a Club roster

 

Maybe this has been brought up before, but maybe it hasn't, but I think it would be nice to have a roster with the Club members in it. Just in case someone would like to contact another member via phone or email. 

One thing I've noticed is there are only 6 members showing out of 60 when I try to bring up the Club directory.

Something needs to be done about that..... I miss having a Club directory.

Hi Mike,
Perhaps you are accessing a dead/old page. The “Members” link from our home page brings up our official roster of 
about 40 members who agreed to have their name, call, address and email posted. 

Here is that Members page ... http://www.tlarc.org/members.html

Please let me know if you don’t see that full information I described

Handheld Multimeter+Oscilloscope

George N2APB
 

FYI ... I follow some informative lists for test and measurement and came across someone describing a good and inexpensive "handheld multimeter with an oscilloscope and waveform generator."  It's good to 40 MHz, which makes it nice for work in our HF projects:

Hantek 2C42 … <https://www.amazon.com/Hantek-Oscilloscope-Multimeter-Dual-channel-Scopemeter/dp/B07LBS8BM9/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=hantek+2c42&qid=1565279215&s=hi&sr=8-1>

Read the ham's review of the 2C42 is below.   I will be getting this instrument for portable use when the equipment is too far away from my project bench.  (Maybe even for use in showing a single-board FT8 transceiver in action at a coming meeting ;-)

73, George

http://www.tlarc.org/ 

========================================
Hantek 2C42 Oscilloscope On-The-Bench

Searching around for a hand-held O'scope with more capability than the neat little 200kHz versions, e.g., JYE Tech, I came across the Hantek 2000 series scopes.

I bought the 2C42 version from Amazon. The Amazon prices, in most cases, are much less than those found elsewhere, and free shipping with no hassle returns.

Also, I have a function generator with more features and functions than the Hantek AWG so I chose the basic version

Negative reviews were mostly that the scopes didn't compare well to their $$$$ Rigols and Tektroncs

One negative for my aging brain only is the menu structure. So I spent some time mapping them. At last count, in addition to those described in the Hantek manual, I mapped 47 menus and sub-menus. I've created two drawing pages detailing the maps.

For my projects and experiments, I'm more than pleased with the 2C42 version and it fits nicely on my desk without a lot of cable-clutter.

A sine wave test of frequency response provided a useful signal to 60 MHz the limit of my function generator. I haven't made any attempt yet to determine accuracy.

BTW, Circuit Specialists has a good presentation of the 2D72 70MHz version. A lot of detail that's not provided by other suppliers.

Repeater Frequencies - a few updates

George N2APB
 

In case you haven't seen it, we have a great list of repeaters on our website that covers the Tellico Lake region.  You can see all these repeater frequencies and settings at ... 
http://www.tlarc.org/Repeaters.html 

Changes from what we previously had ... The Loudon ARES backup is now using the Tellico Village Repeater (442.1) and channels have been added for Athens and Cleveland, TN. 


BTW, a pretty cool "feature" on this page is that you can download the list in CSV format to either modify-and-print using Excel, or modify-and-load into your own HT using the CHIRP program (if your HT has this remote loading capability.)

Many thanks to Brad KM4OJK "Voice of the Village" for keeping us all updated on these frequencies!
