Questions / Tubes
« on: May 20, 2015, 09:44:49 AM »
I forgot where the ORC's Tube List is located on the website.  Anyway, I am looking for a 6AK6 Power Amplifier (9-pin Pentode).

Well, we're changing Lighthouses.  This year we'll be operating from the "Kevich" Light, now owned and operated by David and Mary Bennett.  It's located on a bluff in the ghost town of Ulao, between Grafton & Port Washington.

More details to follow!

General Discussion / Re: Baofeng UV-82X HT links

I spent hours programming my Baofeng HT using the recommended software (from R/T Systems) and, about halfway through, clicked on a wrong icon and lost everything I did!

I'll try again after Field Day.

Well, the International Lighthouse/Lightship Weekend was a success!  The ORC and LeFrog radio clubs combined efforts and everything went off without a hitch.  We mustered well over 200 contacts this year, dispite interference from the North American QSO Party.
LeFrog's new all-mode radio, the ICOM IC-9100 was "broken in" in style.  This was our practice run for the radio in preparation for next year's Field Day.  I know there are many features we haven't experimented with, but by next June, we should be 9100 fluent.
Thanks to the many ORC and LeFrog members for their help in setting up Friday afternoon, operating on Saturday & Sunday plus taking everything down Sunday Noon.  The 30-foot Tower and 4-Element Beam took the most effort, but it was well worth it.  Between last year and this year, that set-up raked in over 600 contacts, a lot of them with other Lighthouse Special Event stations!
Participating this year, besides myself, were Tom, AA9XK, Tom, W9VBQ, Tom, KC9ONY, Tom, W9IPR, Loren, N9ENR, Stan, WB9RQR, Nancy, KC9FZK, Al, K9VNM, Steve, W9MCU, Gary, K9DJT, Mark, AB9CD, Kristian, KC9TFP, Art, AC9CD, Dick, AB0VF, Kate, KB0SIO, Jim, AC9FX, Nels, WA9JOB and Lars, N0CALL.
By the way, "Lars" (a Mannequin once owned by Howard and Rosemary Gernetzke, or Gernette in the Milwaukee area) was donated to the Ozaukee County Historical Society by LeFrog to the Lighthouse.  Lars will be working as a "Purser" for years to come on the 2nd level of the museum.

ORC Spring Swapfest / May Swapfest info
« on: April 28, 2013, 09:03:17 PM »
Well, things are moving right along with the Spring Swapfest, now that we've got the Ticket situation settled.  However, we're going to need a whole new Committee for NEXT year's event!  I will still be able to do the flyer, but someone's going to have to take over as Chairperson.
Please think about it and let me know if you'd be interested in helping out the club with this important assignment.
Bill, KA9WRL
