Quiet Yamaha generator $400 at Costco

Robin Amundson
 

I was hearing a buzz among hams about a deal at Costco on a Yamaha generator, much quieter than a Honda. 48 lbs, portable for a field activation. I have been concerned about my home station power needs in an emergency. Our home generator would not also work for my shack. I bought one, checking off that box for em comm preparedness. Woodinville store still has a pile of them, but not for long.

I agree. We need to use our space more.

Cheers

For comms should we organize within SNOVARC (i.e., a SNOVARC volunteer list) or just individually volunteer via the form?

Recommended Podcast

Mel - N7GCO
 

One of my favorite Amateur Radio resources is QSO Today Podcast hosted by Eric Guth (4Z1UG/WA6IGR)

https://www.qsotoday.com/

 

Every Week Eric interviews a significant person in amateur radio. In the course of the interview he will often ask the person he is interviewing:

  • ·         How did you get started in Amateur Radio?
  • What was your first radio?
  •  Did it influence your choice of careers or education?
  •  What do you see as the biggest challenge to amateur radio?
  •  What excites you most about amateur radio?

 

Each podcast is just about one hour in length. I love listening to them when I am running errands or driving on a trip. Eric has now done 264 of the weekly podcasts.

 

You can download the podcasts to your phone using any of the normal services (Itunes, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeart Radio, You Tube, Overcast, etc).

 

Listening to these podcasts has certainly increased my understanding and love of amateur radio. I encourage you to give them a try.

Tunnel Marathon comms support on 9/15/2019.

Tom WA7TBP
 

SNOVARC  members.

We have a request for operators for a marathon next month in North Bend. I have forwarded the request for you to examine. I was going to help out here, but, I will be helping with the Plain 100 that week-end. This is an excellent opportunity for SNOVARC operators to help out another SNO Valley group with a public service event.

Thanks for considering helping out here.

73,

Tom, WA7TBP

Time: 6: 30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. or unless released earlier.

Re: Help! Anderson Powerpole. Fail!

Paul Butzi (W7PFB)
 

I’m glad I was able to help.

I will be happy to do as many little Powerpole Elmer sessions as needed to get everyone up to speed on how to install Powerpoles.  Folks need only ask. Having made many of he possible mistakes myself I’m thrilled to think others might learn from my mistakes rather than having to invent them de novo.

Re: Help! Anderson Powerpole. Fail!

Bob Otis
 

This is a good Elmer session.  I have gotten pretty good at Powerpoles, though, so I’ll miss it.  That said, the one tip I have found useful is the put the metal piece into the crimper the way you want it, and squeeze just enough to secure it.  Then, insert the wire and finish the crimp.  Also, sometimes inserting the crimped wire into the plastic holder can require some assistance (e.g., small screw driver). 

 

Best of luck, Bob

If we do something tomorrow afternoon (all are welcome) then you will be able to make progress to show us on Thursday.  So how about tomorrow, say, 1pm, at the club shack in Carnation?

Paul- Monday or Tuesday could work. I could also wait for our Thursday night in the park gathering if that is more helpful for others who might need the lesson as well. 

What works for you and thanks for the help!
