ACARES Monthly Meeting -- October 12th 7:00pm -- CCSD ISF 5416 S. Riviera Way Aurora, CO 80015

Proud of your shack?  E-mail or text a photo to Alan, KI0EP, and we'll post it here.  Here are some of our members' shacks:

KI0EP

My equipment includes an Alinco DX-77T with an MFJ-949C tuner for HF, an Alinco DR-635 for VHF/UHF FM voice, and an Alinco DR-150 with a KPC 3+ for VHF packet and FM.  I also have a PK-232 for HF packet/RTTY/AMTOR and have the DX-77 interfaced to the computer for HF digital modes.  I use a Radio Shack dual-band vertical and a discone for VHF and UHF and a 75m dipole for HF.

 

KD0UFO

Here is what I have Yaesu 8800 powered by a TekPower TP30SWII Switching Power Supply. In addition, there is an Yaesu FT 60 dual band portable, a TYT MD380 DMR UHF portable, Uniden BCD436HP Scanner and a AcuRite Weather Station and I will soon be adding a Motorola DMR UHF portable.

My shack is only portable at the moment but it's sure is fun! An FT817, MFJ QRP pocket tuner, 9:1 balun with a 30' wire. This pic is a few weeks ago in the Dominguez Escilante near Grand Junction.

Archive of Newsletters

D22 Newsletters from years gone by...

Wayne, N0POH, was going through some files and found some newsletters dating from 1988 to about 2006 that we have posted now on a "Newsletters" page. These are definitely worth the read! They are historical, informative, and entertaining! It amazes me, especially as your new EC, how Alphonse Karr really hit the nail on the head when he said "The more things change, the more they are the same." If you have other newsletters or materials of interest to the history of Arapahoe ARES please send them to N2NWA or KD5DKQ.  They are also scanned into a single 37 page PDF file that can be downloaded: D22 Newsletters 1988 to about 2006. Thanks to Wayne for scanning those for us!
