Communicators,

 

It's time to get our group together for the C.A.L.F. Run (Children’s Activities for Life & Fitness).  It will headquarter out of the Coyote Drive In this year and will be a morning event on, Saturday, 6 October 2018.  This event is run by the Cowtown and benefits Kids.  It is a one mile fun run, a 5K, and a 10K all run on the Bike Trails.  We will need about 20 Communicators.  It will start early but be done by 11:00 AM.  More details are available at the following URL: https://cowtownmarathon.org/cowtown-c-l-f-10k-5k-1-mile-walkrun/

 

Sign up now on the RACES Web Page, www.tarrantraces.org  or e-mail me at w5iu@....  I have attached the Course Maps for the event.  Rest Stop Locations will be sent later.

Coax Attenuation Loss and Antenna Gain Calculator

Bob Ballard
 

Many online sites can be found to do these calculations but I built one for myself with Excel and decided to share it with any interested.

 

FYI - MS Excel Radio Output Minus Coax and VSWR Losses Plus Antenna Gain = ERP Calculator

Bob Ballard
 

FYI – Attached above is an Excel worksheet I built to help determine the Effective Radiated Power (ERP) resulting from various Coax, VSWR and antenna Gain combinations.

 

User Caution - The attached file is a free Microsoft Excel based worksheet which I do not declare to be accurate nor safe to use in any way for any purpose.  Use it at your own risk as I am not (nor are the individuals listed below) responsible for any product or property damage, physical injuries nor any other consequences or outcomes resulting from the use of the attached Excel worksheet.

 

My thanks go to Mike Heusser (KL7SG) and Wayne Morris (KB5UQ) for their voluntary assistance that helped me improve my original calculator by adding the capability to input VSWR settings and produce the display of the resulting losses.

 

73,

Bob – KG5SQJ

Just a reminder the Honored Hero Run is a bit over a month out and we still need radio operators.

Paul

I have you on the list. I will need to look at the route as we are no longer doing the long portion of the run as previously planed therefore a HT should be sufficient for all positions now.



Thank You
