Arduino / Re: Touchscreen display
« on: May 12, 2013, 08:02:27 PM »
That is a neat display Brian.  Who sells it and how much?  How much memory does it use for the driver?
The one I bought (Shield-22) was from  They have many of 4D Systems for sale at

I haven't calculated how much memory the driver is using but I'm sure it could made more efficient by only including the functions that you need for a project.

Swag (Hats/Jackets) / Re: ORC Apparel?
« on: May 07, 2013, 06:44:06 PM »
I didn't realize Ed Rate had the task of the Swag.  You know, that's something I would be willing to do.  Not only do I live in Port Washington, but I was in high school with Junior Usleding, the owner of the place.

As Tom is partial to Blue, I'm a guy who likes green.  There shouldn't be any reason the stuff couldn't be done in any other colors unless the club standard is blue.

I'll see you guys Wednesday night at the meeting.  Maybe we can bring it up as new business...or would that go to the board?

You're thinking of the wrong Ed -- he's AA9W -- but I'm pretty certain that Ed Frac would be thrilled to hand off those duties to you Gary.  We can discuss more at the meeting tomorrow.

Remind me to bring the ARRL Arduino book to the May club meeting.    Any initial ideas on what
you will use the touchscreen for?    Was it expensive?
It can be used as a replacement for a LCD display so it has many potential possibilities.

Good question Tom.  I know that Ed, AA9WW, has been tasked with the ORC gear that we sell on the website but I think he's looking for someone a bit closer to Port Washington (where the jackets and hats are embroidered) to take that duty over.

Any takers?

Great suggestion Gary.  I'd like to know as well.

Please be careful when dealing with non-members of the club.  There is a lot of good information on the Net regarding dealing with buyers and sellers but I'd highly recommend reading the information on  Especially the one listed as Avoiding Scams & Ripoffs - the KA9FOX opinion

Tom, W9IPR, will be giving us a Powerpoint presentation on the Titan II ICBM program which used a AC Spark Plug guidance system.

Dayton Hamvention / Re: Four weeks to go!
« on: April 17, 2013, 08:00:35 PM »
Tomorrow, Thursday, marks only four weeks before the annual trek to the Dayton Hamvention.  The count in our group is ten.  We are going down in two cars, with Tom W9IPR, pulling his trailer.  He will haul the Scholarship items along with a small table, umbrella, and chairs, to be used in the excellent, traditional spot that we've used since Dave Knaus W9QA (ex WA9POV) acquired it years ago.  You need to understand that with all the hype and excitement at the Hamvention, there are also the gatherings at the Texas Roadhouse, the early morning breakfast sessions in the hotel, the enjoyment of the road trip, and the social gatherings in someone's room, with a friendly cooler, that make these trips memorable.  I'm sorry you will miss this!

I'll go ahead and advertise this on the main club site like I did last year.
