Alpha 99 Amp $2,000
W1AN

I’m posting this here for Ken Chaffee. Looks like a nice buy. Initially tried to post in Swapmeet with no success.
73, John, W1AN

For Sale: an ALPHA 99, 160 – 10 meter, full legal power amplifier. Since I am a DXer and not a contester with most of my contacts running barefoot I doubt it has 50 hours of actual operating time on it. I’m selling it because I have just ordered an Elecraft KPA500 to match my K3. When I bought the ALPHA (new from the factory) it cost me $3000.00. Since it has so little use I’m asking $2000.00. Please contact me at WA1QXR@amsat.org or (401) 377-8490. My address is 10 Colonial Village Road, Ashaway,RI.
Thank-you very much.

June 7, 2014 Meeting

CTRI Members,

As you may have noticed, we are scheduled to meet this coming Saturday at the North Kingstown Public Library.  I have a little WARC antenna project I will share with the group.  It should spark some lively discussions.  I have modeled an antenna from the Antenna Handbook, using some of my past experience from my years of professing to know something about antennas.  It should be interesting to see how well the model results compare to the results I get in the real world.  For an antenna, the final answer is always how it plays in the real world, not how nice the “model” results come out.

We also should have some other topics – results from the CT-1 W1AW/1 Operation, the RI-1 W1AW/1 Operation, upcoming field day, June VHF contest, etc, etc.

If you are planing on attending, please add a comment to this post.  We’ll start at 10:00 AM and get finished before 1:00 PM

Hope to see you there.  73, Mike, K1DM

A little OT, I have a CO alarm that just started beeping with an “ERR” – turns out it is an End Of Life warning (throw it out, get a new one) supposedly for safety reasons since there is no good way to ensure it will keep working longer.

In any event, are there any particularly desirable parts I should scavenge from inside – possibly a small sized beeper for putting inside a potato gun projectile,

Hi Everyone!

Greetings from San Diego!

A little OT, I have a CO alarm that just started beeping with an “ERR” – turns out it is an End Of Life warning (throw it out, get a new one) supposedly for safety reasons since there is no good way to ensure it will keep working longer.

In any event, are there any particularly desirable parts I should scavenge from inside – possibly a small sized beeper for putting inside a potato gun projectile, and a small 3 character LED display.  It’s a KIDDE nighthawk CO/GAS detector made in 2006 (End of Life beep starts 7 years after it was first powered up, not after manufacture).
