Re: Welcome to new TLARC member: Eric KD8LHZ

George N2APB
 

Correction on the callsign of our new member: Eric KD8LHZ.  Sorry about that Eric!

73, George N2APB
TLACR Cheif Lysdexic Officer 

============================================
Here's a big TLARC welcome to our newest member: Eric KD8LHZ ... Glad to have you with us Eric!

Eric has been a ham since 2009 and is new to Tellico Village for about a year, originating from Ohio.  He's active on the 2m and 73cm repeaters with an IC-2200H and IC-880H (DSTAR).  Some of his passion and background is in tornado storm spotting (hence his email address naming) and other weather-related technologies.

For Eric's benefit, as well as a reminder to others ... Here on our TLARC web page is a long list of repeaters in the area, listing their affiliations, frequencies, offsets, and PL access tones:  <https://www.tlarc.org/Repeaters.html>

Hope to see Eric and many others at the TLARC meeting tomorrow (Wednesday evening at 7pm) under the Tugaloo open-sided pavilion.  This will be our first in-person meeting in more than 6 months!  We'll be out in the open air (under the pavilion) near the beach, with restroom access.  Bring your latest toys (radio stuff) and unicorn paraphernalia to talk about, pass around, trade or sell to others.  See more detail in the recent posting from Dave N1ESK.  Will be great!

FS Ham Radio Equipment Consoles

George N2APB
 

Here's a couple of nice, inexpensive, custom-made wooden desk consoles on Craigs List now that are just perfect for putting radios into a small floor footprint ...

https://knoxville.craigslist.org/ele/d/oak-ridge-fs-ham-radio-equipment/7194111718.html

 

Two identical floor consoles, each capable of housing at least 4 boatanchor-size radios. Don’t have any radios this big?  Easy to add a second shelf in that vertical opening.  Width is 48 inches. The lower shelf slopes downward to the rear. The desk surface at the front is 12 inches wide. Each console has an aluminum angle bar at the rear for equipment grounding and an attached AC outlet strip. Professionally constructed of ¾-inch plywood. One of the photos illustrates ways in which the consoles may be “loaded”.  Would look terrific if dark-stained and an acrylic satin finish.

 

I was going to get these but I just couldn’t fit them into my radio room.  If you contact Dave (in Oak Ridge), tell him that I sent you.  Good guy.

PS:  Thanks to KF4DKW for the initial pointer to these.

Re: Live and in person - TLARC meets this Wednesday

Whew, I was hoping for a way to postpone my colonoscopy! I don't think that the Tugaloo restroom could handle it if my beverage of choice was MiraLAX and Gatorade. 😂

See you all Wednesday!

Logbook of the World

Jim Anderson
 

Many of you are probably ARRL's Logbook of the World (LOTW) users, but I'm guessing there may be some who are not because of the setup or operational complexities. Courtesy of Gary Hinson ZL2IFB and a team of collaborators, a new guide to using LOTW is complete and available for your use.

For those who may not be aware, LOTW is the online way to accumulate confirmed contacts to be applied to various ARRL awards such as WAS and DXCC. There's no charge to use the system - you only pay for the award itself once you qualify.

I'm attaching version 1.0 of the guide to this message. There's a link included in the document itself, and I'd recommend checking for an updated version when you're ready to use it.

Live and in person - TLARC meets this Wednesday

David Andrews
 

 

Check your schedule and clear any conflicts. Cancel your surgery, colonoscopy, dentist appointment, and date night. Wednesday at 19:00 local, come see what those Zoom bodies look like in real life at a socially accepted distance. We will converge under the Tugaloo Beach Pavilion for our first in-person monthly TLARC meeting since February.

 

Things to bring: A relaxing chair, your favorite beverage, and a smile. Any items you want to sell, trade, or giveaway.

 

A good time is guaranteed, or double your admission fee back. For those of you not familiar with Tugaloo, there is no admission fee.

 

Directions to Tugaloo Beach (also talk-in on 442.1 MHZ)

 

From the North: Get onto the Tellico Parkway (Route 444) and drive for 6.5 miles. The Tugaloo Beach entrance is on your left, 500 feet after passing Sequoyah Road.

From the South: Get onto the Tellico Parkway (Route 444) and drive 4 miles. Travel past the traffic light. You’ll see Chota road on your left. The Tugaloo Beach entrance is on you right, 500 feet after passing Chota Road.

 

Watch for a colorful poster of a Unicorn at the beach entrance.

 

NOTE: If you are exhibiting any COVID-19 symptoms, please stay home. Self-screen yourself using the following questions:

 

  • Have you been in close contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days?
  • Are you experiencing a cough, shortness of breath, or sore throat?
  • Have you had a fever in the last 48 hours?


Re: Spartenburg Hamfest?

michael J. foley
 

Thanks, but I'll have to pass on this one. If I'm going to drive 3.5 hours to go to a hamfest, it'll be Huntsville! Now THAT's a hamfest!!!

Just a reminder that Sevierville hamfest is the 19th! Just like the world's fair, gets bigger and better every year!

I spotted this on the SolderSmoke blog and thought a few of you might enjoy this. I've heard this Rush song many times before but the video is recent - done as a tribute to their drummer who died earlier this year.
