Greenberg AE4WG email@example.comHambone: General class on holdPosted April 12th, by AJ4MQ By the sounds of it, I wasn’t the only one to arrive to a locked gate this morning looking into the General Class by Hambone College.. and for this, I apologize.. Unfortunately, I was under the impression it was going to happen.. but as usual, I wasn’t informed of the final decision made..Today’s class (and possibly the General Class for 2014) is either being rescheduled, or canceled due to lack of a teacher.. Captain tried to get someone for it, but we weren’t able to locate one in time. In the past, this method has worked fine, but keeping everything in order has proven to be more difficult.Currently, we are in need of teachers for the Amateur Radio Exam Prep classes, and someone to manage and operate Hambone College so it can continue forth. If anyone is interested in this persiut, and has the time, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or Captain LoCicero at K4TUG@usa.net. As soon as I hear anything about these classes, I will get it posted here and on HamboneCollege.comEquipment for Sale! by WS1CPosted April 7th, by Bill SchwartzWS1C@fpcarc.org or 386-283-4017 Yaesu FT- 817 excellent condition with accessories, battery, Cell holder, AC charger, DC cable , book, box, PGM software. $500Drake TR-4 W/Drake speaker - PS, new caps. mike, spare finals & other tubes, Relay and socket, book, 150W output measured$400Yaesu ATAS- 120 automatic antenna W/ homebrew mount n 370$200Bird 43 with N connectors, 100E UHF slug$200IC-T-90 Excellent with box and accessories 50, 144, 440 HT$150Mirage B108 tested 10=78, 5=60W/preamp$70Dummy load to 900Mhz - 100W CW 500W PEP $50Garmin GPS-76 w/ external antenna$40Micromatch HF wattmeter 10-100-1000W, forward-reflected$40 Astron RS-12 13.6V 12 A linear PS OK for 50W VHF-UHF$30Sola 120V 1000W ferro- resonant regulator $20Powerstat Q116 9A 120V 1000VA variable transformer$20Pro Mariner 30A marine 3 battery charger$20Insignia DTV receiver with remote$20Workman UV325 dualband –NMO new 146=1.5, 440=1.5$20Larsen Kulrod 5/8 w/magmount 7 cable BNC 145=1.15$15Antenna Spec. magmount 2m 5/8 w/ UHF cable 148=1.1$15Unknown 5/8 Spring mount excellent w/UHF cable 146=1.1$15CB magmount modified for 10 meters with UHF cable$15Uniden Bearcat BC-200XLT with charger$15HF VSWR bridges, Motorola, Heath, Swan, Amer.

Three successful years of monthly testing!Updated April 10th, by Tom “NW0LF “ BilelloIn 3 years of monthly VE testing, there has been only 1 session where there was no test candidates. We have had candidates from all over Florida and from Georgia and have helped make many new hams. We have also helped many upgrade their license. I would like to thank the entire VE team because without them, the testing would not be nearly as successful as it has been. A toast to our continued success.Water Bouy ProjectPosted March 17th, by AJ4MQ (to be updated)Captain LoCicero has been putting together a Water Bouy project for the kids, to be placed in the Gulf of Mexico to report information such as temperature, wave heights, flow direction and other information usable for scientific research.Will post more as soon as I get it.Parts Needed! by AJ4MQPosted April 8th, by AJ4MQ (updated)I am putting together a special Hambone College Electronics class, and I need some parts to make it happen..I am looking for old units being tossed for donation:VCRsLCD Monitors (new)Old PCs, Laptops (new)If you have other kind of older electronics (hand-soldered components, ICs and such), please let me know. I picked up a box of Modems a few years back which have some microprocessors of interest, and some other parts. First class in electronics 102 will utilize parts of a VCR to create testing equipment for your home bench, and if all goes well, will all go together to make a home spectrum analyzer device in the long run. Something I’ve wanted to do for quite a while.. Now that I have the space to work on the idea, it’s probably gonna happen.My area is located near International and the tracks, but I can pick up from just about anywhere in East Volusia County..Thanks. - Jeff Mathews (AJ4MQ)email@example.comAJ4MQ Plea for help. We need writersPosted March 17th by AJ4MQ Please, anyone who can help me get things posted online, I can only make about 3 meetings a year, and I almost never hear from anyone about practically anything going on near by. I am looking for anything to post, particularly related to amateur radio, including but not limited to emergency response, radio fox hunting, Amateur Television, Hambone College and any other special projects where the amateur radio community may be interested in. Once submitted and authorized, I will post it here for all to see, and people are dropping by.Please send your info to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will be happy to get them.
