FYI from a newsgroup:
"There were many ham nets up yesterday. LA DCS, LAFD ACS, DARN (ARES) etc.
You can look up DCS, ACS DARN on the web for info and freqs. I did not see
it but heard KNBC even stated yesterday when all the cell networks went
down, that ham radio was still working.
When all else fails, ham radio still works."

If anyone here in Santa Barbara would like to help out, please let me know. This
last weekend was a lot of fun for everyone, and the tri-tip BBQ provided a great
opportunity to talk and get to know each other better. The one thing I can use
some help with is getting the transmitters put out as well as retrieved after
Because of a conflict with one of the US ARDF Team members, the dates have been
changed for the next Mt Pinos ARDF practice to the fourth weekend in August,
August 23 and 24. Because this conflicts with the all day hunt frequency, the 2M
frequency will be changed to 145.565 MHz. Sorry for the duplicate/triplicate
notice for those of you on several lists.
It will be the same format as we used this past weekend ... but the courses will
be different :). As we did on Saturday evening, we will have a tri-tip BBQ after
the 2M Sprint. The cost will again be $5.00 for the maps and use of epunch
equipment, and depending on how many people show up, $5.00 or so for the tri-tip
The schedule for the August 23, 24 events are as follows:
Saturday, August 23 10:00AM - 2M Course (145.565 MHz)
Saturday, August 23 3:00PM - 2M Sprint Practice (get one transmitter on each
minute ... hopefully. 146.565)
Saturday, August 23 6:00PM - Santa Barbara Style Tri-tip BBQ
Sunday, August 24 9:30AM - 80M Course (3.579 MHz)
There will be a 3 hour time limit for both the 2M and 80M courses. The starts
for all courses will only be open long enough to get everyone started (about 35
minutes) so please, DO NOT BE LATE. We will be using epunch for both the 2M and
80M courses, and pin punch for the sprint practice. Unlike this last weekend, we
should have beacon transmitters at the finish line.
The 2M and 80M start location on Saturday and Sunday will be near the top
parking lot, and the finish will again be at McGill Campground. We will meet at
the Ski Patrol building at the top parking lot and walk to the start location.
The Saturday afternoon 2M sprint so that each of the five transmitters would be
found in each minute worked out pretty well, so we'll do that again. Only this
time, the flags will be numbered and we'll probably use pin punch ... to help
everyone get close enough to the flags to see what number they are :).
If anyone needs an estick, there won't be any additional charge for borrowing
one except for a $30.00 charge if you should lose or damage it.
The Tri-tip BBQ will be held at the same location (Frazier Park County Park.) If
the ban on charcoal/open fires is lifted (unlikely), we can hold it at McGill
The people who have contacted me so far who plan on attending are:
Jay Hennigan (US ARDF Team member)
Jay Thompson (US ARDF Team member)
Bob Cooley (US ARDF Team member)
Scott Moore (US ARDF Team member)
If you are planning on attending the ARDF practice, please make sure I know you
will be coming.
The results from the July practice at Mt Pinos are up on the homingin web
site at: http://www.homingin.com/.
Just a quick note of thanks to all of you who showed up today and helped to make
this years Bazaar a success. We still need to double check the figures, but it
looks like we cleared somewhere over $1000 today.

Santa Barbara Amateur Radio Club
2008 Bazaar This Saturday
This is the event that many of us have been waiting for. The Bazaar is
where we play a great game of Musical Garages. Everyone has
a chance to finally clear out all that wonderful junque that has been
piling up. Even with all of our good intentions, we just never got
around to building it, repairing it, modifying it or getting rid of it.
Here is our chance. This event is a once-a-year happening and it is
going to take place this Saturday morning, July 12, in the front yard of
Marvin, KE6HTS. Marvin says that because of logistics, he just doesn't
want to move all that great stuff from his place over to the Elks Lodge
where we have held our Bazaars in the recent past.
Marvin lives at 408 Grove Lane in Santa Barbara. His Zip code is 93105.
Here is a link to a Google Map for you to easily find how to get there.
Just what sort of stuff can you expect to find at the Bazaar? How about
just about every kind of radio related thing you can think of -- things
like antennas, tower parts or complete units, radios that work, radios
that almost work or used to work, all sorts of parts to build things
with such as electronic components, wire, coax, insulators, telephone
equipment, semiconductors, vacuum tubes, test equipment, computer
related stuff, software, printers, memory, books and magazines,
hardware, surplus military equipment, power supplies, soldering irons,
older amateur radios and on and on.
There is also a Red Tag table where you may bring along a piece of gear
that you don't particularly want to just toss on the pile but would
prefer to ask a price for. The rules are that you or someone you appoint
must be near your goodie to sell it for you and remove it after the
event or any time before. Also, you get to keep 90% of what you are
asking for it and SBARC gets to keep 10% of it. Hey, that's a pretty
The Bazaar runs from 8:00 am to noon. Be advised that the earliest bird
gets the longest worm. So here is your chance to keep the little woman
happy. Either she will be delighted that you have finally decided to
clean out all that wonderful junque or she will be dancing up and down
when she sees what trinket you have brought home with you! Yeah, sure.
Bring all your friends. The club needs the money. Speaking of which, we
will have several of our favorite people acting as salesmen and you can
make such a deal with them. Go ahead, insult them with a ridiculous
offer. They'll bargain with you. Bring green or checks. We're not set up
to take plastic. And another thing, don't be shy about taking home a
whole bunch of stuff. What you don't use you can always bring back to
next year's Bazaar. That just enhances the Musical Garages idea.
I plan on getting all the good stuff so if you really are thinking of
taking home something special, better get there early. In the beginning
of the event, you can look it all over and keep in mind what you can't
live without. Then when the bell rings, run over to it and grab it and
take it to one of our salesmen. They'll be obvious there. Another thing,
after you pay for your item, take it over to your vehicle and lock it up
in there and come back and shop some more. It's a terrible thing when
something you paid for is then bought again by someone else and taken home.
See you all on Saturday.
73, Darryl, KF6DI
Does anyone have Tim Meredith's (KG6TAT) email or phone number, or can go on his
repeater (147.075+) and contact him ?
He lives up by Painted Cave and I wanted to make sure he's OK.
If so, please email me directly, or pass this message and my email along.
Just a reminder that this Saturday, July 12, from 8AM to noon is the SBARC
Bazaar. If you have anything you would like to donate to the Bazaar, there is
still time so just give me a call at 687-8881.
To save on the logistics, it will be held at my house. The address is:
408 Grove Lane
Santa Barbara, CA 93105
Grove Lane is located between Hope Ave and Ontare Rd on the mountain side of
State street and runs between San Remo and Foothill. A map is shown at:
Thanks, and see you there!
