Hi, All -

Currently cleaning out the ye ole radio shack. I have the following items I'm putting up for sale.

ALL PROCEEDS WILL BE TURN OVER TO BOB KG6RGI FOR THE TEAM'S EQUIPMENT FUND, e.g. new batteries et. al.

Here's the list with suggested "donations". All items were working when I last checked them. Defects, limitations etc. as noted.

Yaesu FT-2800M VHF transceiver w/ mic, mounting bracket and manual                                              $60

Icom IC-2100 VHF transceiver w/ mic, mounting bracket, manual and Nifty reference card              $60

AEA PK-232 MBX TNC (upgraded)                                                                                                                  $50

This has the DSP upgrade, low power upgrade, and latest firmware (v7.2); complete documentation, and assorted cables.

Rascal Sound Card Interface w/ 6DIN radio connection                                                                             $25

Mirage B-34-G amp                                                                                                                                           $30

TM-742A tri-bander (2m/220/440)                                                                                                                $???

This works but needs a replacement battery to hold memory. Face plate is damaged and the original key labels worn off (I used Mr. Labeler to add new ones).  Not sure how to value this. In the past, some folks paid several hundred dollars just to get the 220 MHz module. Since I'm trying to raise funds for the team any input you might have re: pricing would be appreciated.

RS Simplex Repeater 19-345 (very rare)                                                                                                        $30

I will also have a box of assorted goodies, each item with a suggested donation of $5.

All will be revealed on Saturday at the meeting.

Jer aka AK6QJ

HI, All -

I've been informed by ACS/RACES that due to recent storms, ice has damaged the VHF antenna at the ACS North Peak repeater. The ACS VHF system is now transmitting from Palomar Mt. I don't have an estimated time when the North Peak antenna will be repaired.

Some of you folks in Imperial and southern San Diego counties will be effected. Tonight please check in by email. We can talk about contingency plans for future nets at the meeting Saturday.
