Subject: W3AEH Estate Sales

As many of you know, both Dave Carrol (N2VUZ - RF Hill) and I have been selling off the Allen Lipkin (W3AEH) estate.  Most of these sales have been local occurring at each of our homes.  These are individual sales with mask on or lately the buyer tells us he's had the Covid shot(s).  ie; not 6 or more people hanging around the table as we often see at hamfests. 

In addition, on March 12th Jayson and I took a number of items out to the Reading Radio Club meeting held at the Berks County Agricultural Center in Bernville (West side of Reading).  Reading RC have been back to meeting in person mainly because of the venue; a very large auditorium at the Agg Center with tables and chairs spread out more than 6ft apart.  Money collected that night was $66, with $7 going to the RRC.

Today, Easter Sunday, I took time to total up the cash received both at my house in Willow Grove and up at Dave's house in Telford.  The club commission (10 percent) will go to RF Hill for items sold in Telford and to Penn Wireless for items sold in Willow Grove.  I had one Warminster Club member who came down to NE Philly and purchased several items directly from the estate.  In that one case, 10 percent will go to the Warc treasurer.

We still have several items pending ($100 maybe?) and quite a few items to go thru before we can see light at the end of the tunnel.  Sarah (the widow) will have Allen's friend Ron Cohen (K3ZKO) come in and go thru multiple boxes in the basement front room.  There could be more radio items there but more likely it's just personal papers and maybe manuals.  We'll see..??

OK...  Can I have a drum roll please;
Dave has collected $400 in Telford with $40 going toward RF Hill.
I have collected $512 in Willow Grove with $52 going toward PWA.
Somewhere in the numbers I'll pull $10 to go toward Warc.

As I count the cash (less club commissions) I currently have $820 which as per Sarah's request will go to the ALS Foundation.

Thank you all for your "totally out of season non-hamfest" purchases.  We could not have raised this amount of money without you.  I will post a new notice for the "Philly Swap Net" on Zoom to be held this Tuesday evening at 7:30.

Hi Don, Are you trying the K3PDR repeater. You could also try AA3E. I think they are linked. I'm not sure what a question mark means.

Hi Patrick,

I connected with the id-880h. I pinged all stations but didn't get a response. Maybe my path isn't good to the repeater. I did see N3KDA pop up but the connectivity test failed.

I am please to announce the UHF radio port of the PDRA Ratflector is back in operation. Tune your D-STAR radio to 445.73125 MHz, with a negative offset. Connect your radio to a computer running D-RATS. In D-RATS, make a serial connection to your D-STAR radio, and you are ready to communicate. You can still connect to this Ratflector by making a network connection to k3pdr.dstargateway.org, port 9000.

That line is a hold-over from last Summer when Paul and I were running the Swap Net on the PWA repeater. I left it in there because we really don't need to hear two guys haggling.  Do that on the phone.

Mark,

I am by no means saying that there are not good reasons for disallowing haggling on a zoom meeting that is meant to be swap session for equipment. However, I am curious about rule number 3. Since when did the FCC take control of what is said in a zoom meeting to the extent that the FCC tells people if they can haggle during the course of a zoom meeting?

Stay safe and healthy!

To all Hams in the Delaware Valley,

The Zoom meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm on the First and Third Tuesday evenings of the month.  See link at the bottom of this email. 

I am inviting hams from PWA, Warminster ARC, Packrats, Philadelphia Digital Radio, Phil-Mont, DVRA, Marc, Marple-Newtown, Reading RC and maybe a few more.  Dave (N2VUZ) is helping with the current estate and Charles (KS3Z) may have another estate for us to look at as well. Dave has some items up in Telford and I have some here in Willow Grove.

We have sold several items from the estate including hookup wire, several analog meters, another Stancore isolation transformer, the Heathkit branded small tool kits, the GR variacs, etc.  We are looking for a Heathkit collector to take away the scope, sig generator, scope calibrator, analog VOM, and maybe another Heathkit item.  Pics are up on the For Sale page.

Look on the PWA "For Sale" page;

I ask everyone to take a full sheet of paper - 8-1/2 x 11 - and write your first name, call sign and either your email address or a phone number.  Please show it to us, when you display your equipment.  This will allow interested parties to contact you off the Zoom meeting.

I will go over the rules we have used for the PWA "on the air" Swap Net. 
1;  No more than 3 items per person / per night.  There's always next week to bring up 3 more.
1a; Estates may show up to 6 items per night.
2;  No up front costs.  If your item does sell ??  then the seller will make a donation to the club. 
3;  As per Fcc rules, no haggling price over the air.  Mention the asking price and haggle on the phone.
4;  Make up a quickie email listing your items for that week.  Nothing long and drawn out.  Just the 3 items and be prepared to send it to anyone who asks...  not only people on the PWA email list.
5;  No number 5, four is enough.

Our objective is to offer a virtual place to sell items including estate radios, test equipment, radio parts and tools to local radio operators and builders in the tri-state area -- and not place items up on eBay, QTH, QRZ or other online auction houses where we need to pack and ship across country.  Sell local and make arrangements off the Zoom for local pickup.  We do not offer any warranty or guarantees of items sold other than "hey it's working" or "no it's not working".  Buyer beware and please don't shoot the messenger.  We are only here to offer an alternative to Hamfests until we get beyond the current virus.  We now see the Sussex Hamfest in Delaware is cancelled as well as Warminster and Sellersville.  Still in the planning stages are Mullica Hill (Sept) and Kimberton (July).

Thank you to Steve (KB3ORG - PWA President) for allowing us to use his paid Zoom account so we don't run up against the 40 minute time-out.

Re: D-RATS radios

 

Hi Patrick,

I connected with the id-880h. I pinged all stations but didn't get a response. Maybe my path isn't good to the repeater. I did see N3KDA pop up but the connectivity test failed.

To all Hams in the Delaware Valley,

The Zoom meeting is scheduled to begin at 7:30 pm on the First and Third Tuesday evenings of the month.  See link at the bottom of this email.  This time we'll have to "wing it" a bit, PWA is having problems with the website -- specifically the For Sale page reads "Oops, That page can not be found". 

I am inviting hams from PWA, Warminster ARC, Packrats, Philadelphia Digital Radio, Phil-Mont, DVRA, Marc, Marple-Newtown, Reading RC and maybe a few more.  Dave (N2VUZ) is helping with the current estate and Charles (KS3Z) may have another estate for us to look at as well. Dave has some items up in Telford and I have some here in Willow Grove.

I will have some new items to display from the estate;  Hookup wire of all types, Eico 1064 power supplies or battery eliminators, the soldering irons, and a few more analog and digital meters.

Look on the PWA "For Sale" page;

I do not believe so, but as I always say: consult the low speed data section of your radio manual for more details (I don't have one of every radio to try myself).
