Wonderous Wireless Widgets

Once upon a time, in the 1960's, I had a Technician license and worshipped at the alter of Heathkit and Hallicrafters - tubes, crystals and Morse Code. Now I am back, like Rip Van Winkle, waking up in a new world of wonderous wireless widgets. This blog is about that adventure and the folks at Alameda's ARCA club who are helping me along the way.

At one time or another it occurs to most members of ARCA and CERT that it would be fun to build a widget that you could toss into a tree and use as an emergency repeater. With the advent of inexpensive Chinese hand held transceivers, it becomes possible to try this out.

On Monday Shop Night, this August 3rd, we will get together at the AFD Training Center to see what it takes to put together the bare bones “Baby Baofeng” Emergency Repeater. Consisting of little more than two Baofeng radios and cable, it is the simplest possible solution. Does it actually work? Come, bring an HT and find out!

Event: ARCA Monday Shop Night
When: Monday, August 3rd at 7:00 pm
Where: AFD Training Center, 431 Stardust Place, Alameda Point
