Deal On Dual Band Transceivers.
Great Deal on a Dual Band Mobile Transceiver receives on 2 meters
and on 70 cm. It has power levels of 5 and 25 watts. The transceiver
is very compact Club member, Chuck, N9LVY used this radio while
providing communications for the MS 150 bike event. Chuck said the
radio worked flawlessly, but itís a good idea to program it
beforehand with software, because itís not that easy to program out
in the field.
WM9Y is selling the transceivers for $89.00. Thanks Chuck for the
information regarding the radio and for your participation with the
MS 150.At the October club meeting, K9MCE members were offered a
great deal on one of the Chinese made dual band transceivers.
W9NMS Participates in SCR
SCR, known as
School Club Roundup is a fun way to introduce
students to the lifetime fun of radio sport. The
idea is to get as many school clubs as possible to
make contacts on the air with as many stations as
possible. School contacts count for the most points,
followed by ham clubs and then individual contacts.
took place over the 19-23 October and four North Mac
participated in the roundup. Unfortunately, Com-Tech
Club sponsor, Debbie, KC9ULA was only able to devote two
days after school towards the roundup. During those two
days, three students had their first exposure to HF
radio and two students earned their ďFirst Contact
Award!Ē W9NMS was on for two afternoons and made 10 QSOs,
with 42 multipliers for a claimed score of 420 pts.
States worked : TX, VA, FL, SC, OH, NJ and Quebec. The
next SCR will be Feb. 8-12, 2016
