Power/Watt meter

 

Found this neat little "gizmo" that allows you to see just how much power your radio or whatever device you have plugged into it, is drawing from your battery, or power supply.

I've looked at other websites and found these at higher prices. However, Amazon has them, minus the connectors, for $16. 

The instructions are minimal at best. There are no power connections except for the bare wires, so you have to put your own on. I put 45A Anderson Power Poles on each end. 

Works like a charm! It will allow me to keep track of how much power I have left in my battery when I am running POTA......

You can find it here....

Yep, ALL HAMS!!

This contest is applicable to anyone from Technician up.  

It's the :

ARRL 10 METER CONTEST

THIS WEEKEND, BEGINNING FRIDAY!!!

 

Even if you're not a contester get in there and make some contacts on 10 Meters.  You can use either CW or PHONE.  

 

Hopefully the band will cooperate as well as the Weather.  Remember-Disconnect Coax when there is a Storm.  That's one of the best ways to protect your station during a storm---simply DISCONNECT!

 

This is an ARRL sponsored event!

for rules and more information  go to 

 

 

So there you go, something to do this weekend.   

If you have any questions feel free to give me an email or call.  

 

I'll send you to someone like Bob K9JU :)...no I'll help ya but if I can't then you go to Bob K9JU....HIHI. 

 

73 all.

NOW GO MAKE CONTACTS ON 10METERS!!

 

Seriously, everyone, especially New Hams, don't ever hesitate to ask for help.  You will find that Hams are eager to help the newcomers!  That's not just for this contest..it's Ham Radio!!!  

I'm not saying I know everything.  I just know that if I don't know the answer I know someone who does!!

Hi everyone

I have 2 radios for sale:

  1. Icom IC-R30 Digital and Analog Wideband Communications Receiver - $575
  2. Anytone  AT-D878UV PLUS - $200
Both were purchased new earlier this year and available with original packaging and accessories.

Looking to replace them with the Yaesu FT991A and give me more incentive to get the General license 😀.

Hi Bob,

 

Wow, great to know that we have yet another “latent image” ATVer here in the group.  (Latent Image was a buzz word when I worked for many years at Kodak up in Rochester NY!)

 

You point out a good reference in QST for Oct 2021, and Jim Andrews is a prolific ATVer in the various online resources and forums.

 

Former broadcast engineer, eh?  No wonder you have an affinity for tube testers and boatanchors! 

 

We’ll have to convene a TLARC “Special Interests Group” meeting for ATV sometime, either on Zoom or in person some sunny Saturday afternoon.  Looking forward to picking your brain (and Lou’s) for the experience that you guys have.  Would be great sometime to be able to demonstrate ATV for the club(s) and generate some more interest.  There’s more to ham radio than just contests, POTA, CW, AM & SSB phone, digital, … Well, maybe just add this to the pile of great technology fun we can have on the air!

Hey guys, 

I really enjoyed ATV. There used to be an ATV repeater on Chilhowee MTN years ago.  It was analog of course.  One year there was a simulated air plane crash at the airport.  We put a camera guy in a bucket truck and fed the crash site video back to EOC here in blount county.  The officials loved it!!

 

It's a lot of fun and I would like to get back into it myself.  Yes it's all digital now.  There is a great article on Page 58-59 in the October 2021 QST written by Jim Andrews , KH6HTV.  He was also interviewed on one of the Eclectic Tech episodes here recently .  Also check out http://www.arrl.org/atv-fast-scan-amateur-television

There is a download there for the "Introduction to Amateur Digital Television by Jim Andrews, KH6HTV"

 

Being employed as an engineer in broadcast TV as a career...it's in my blood.  I would love to see an ATV repeater back on the air someday.  One could then transmit to the ATV repeater and receive it on the Internet from the repeat site. 

I have some analog equipment but haven't played with it in years.   

 

For emergency purposes having an ATV repeater would be an awesome addition for ARES.  One could feed video signals from a site of interest such as a plane crash or forest fire.  There could be a possibility for a grant to pave the way for a repeater system with Internet interfaces so one could view it anywhere.  Just thinking out loud.  

Somewhere I have a VHS tape of a ATV group doing the Macy's Day Parade....(if I could find the tape,finding a machine would be another challenge )

 

It would be cool to have a geosynchronous Satellite in orbit for uplink/downlinking too. Now that's a pie in the sky!!! When at the University I was over a 11m KU Band Earth station uplink..such fun in Broadcasting!! 

 

Well glad to see folks interested...

I love the fact that this hobby has so many faucets to it. 

 

Everyone take care and be safe!

I hope to see everyone at the Christmas Party this Saturday!!

73 all.

Hi Lou,

 

Really interesting that you were playing with ATV down in FL a while back.  We are experimenting with *analog* ATV here for starters with both Rx and Tx on 70cm (420-450 MHz).  Serendipitously our club’s FM frequency (442.1) is within this range so one’s existing antenna will work for these ATV experiments!

 

What manufacturer/model of analog ATV equipment do you have on hand.  Want to play along with us?  We’re just attempting ‘simplex’ communications, as there is no repeater involved yet here.

 

FYI for all – One can receive and display an ATV signal by using a simple “download converter” to the antenna and connecting to a standard television frequency.  See below …

“The TVC-4S from PC Electronics is a ready to go ATV downconverter designed to mix the 5 standard ATV frequencies in the 420-450

MHz amateur band down to TV channel 3, or 4 with 20 to 30 dB gain. The preamp stage uses a HJ-FET with a <.4 dB noise

figure. A TVCX-4S board is mounted in a shielded enclosure ready to go with external +12 Vdc or 120 Vac 60 Hz power

supply adapter.”

Re: ATV

 

Hello to all,

I have always wanted to get into ATV work.  As a retired Chief Broadcast Engineer, it is in my blood.  I have several analog TV Cameras that can be used and an assortment of lenses. 

 

Will see ya’ll at the Christmas Party.

Indeed sad day for the ham community. I also knew Joel through hamfests and the fondness of old boatanchors we shared. He authored a massive photo book of such vintage radios that I still greatly enjoy to this day.

Retired QST Technical Editor Joel R. Hallas, W1ZR, of Westport, Connecticut,
died on November 25. An ARRL member, he was 79. Hallas retired in 2013 but
remained active as a contributing editor, handling the popular "The Doctor
is In" column in QST and the podcast of the same name. He had been a radio
amateur since 1955.

"Joel was not only brilliant, he shared that brilliance with the ham radio
community in a way that taught innumerable hams things they needed to know
in order to experience success and enjoyment," said ARRL Publications and
Editorial Department Manager Becky Schoenfeld, W1BXY. "He was a fine mind, a
generous mentor and colleague, and a consummate gentleman. He will be
missed."

Retired ARRL Publications Manager Steve Ford, WB8IMY, recalled Hallas as "an
iconic figure in amateur radio media as a prolific author of QST articles
and ARRL books, and even in the audio podcast community. I greatly enjoyed
being Joel's sidekick for the popular 'Doctor is In' podcasts. He had a wry
sense of humor both on and off the microphone and a remarkably stoic
attitude toward the illness that would eventually claim his life."

Hallas authored six books about communications technology, published by
ARRL. His titles include Basic Radio; Basic Antennas; The ARRL Guide to
Antenna Tuners; Hamspeak; The Care and Feeding of Transmission Lines;
Understanding Your Antenna Analyzer, and The Radio Amateur's Workshop.

Hallas earned his bachelor's in electrical engineering from the University
of Connecticut and an MSEE from Northeastern University.
He previously had worked for Raytheon as a radar systems engineer and for
GTE as a nuclear weapons effects (electromagnetic pulse) analyst and as a
satellite and terrestrial communications systems engineer, as well as for
IBM and AT&T. He also taught at the college level.

He enjoyed sailing, as described in the July 2009 issue of QST. He and his
24-foot sloop Windfall - fully equipped with a ham station that used the
insulated backstay as an HF antenna - graced the front cover.

Survivors include his wife of 58 years, Nancy, W1NCY.
