HELPLINE 20th NOVEMBER 2016
ROY’S HELPLINE for Amateurs and Electronic Enthusiasts.
================================
Wanted,Wanted, Help with getting an Icom IC7000 back to full working condition. Help required, is
to be able to program the radio from the PC using RT systems programming and cable. For some
reason the radio will not see the PC.
I would appreciate someone dropping round to my QTH in Bentley to check what is going on
maybe there is a problem in the menus, a setting that needs changing.
All worked well in the past. A pair of good eyes might solve the problem.
Phone 0418 916 538.
QTH, not correct in the 2016 call book.
Thank you

Alex VK6EZY has become involved in a heritage railway project, (yes including steam locomotive), which is called Wheatbelt Heritage Rail to operate around Dowerin and the rolling stock is being built largely at the Rail Heritage WA Museum at Bassendean. We need radios to work with Brookfield's voting radio network.

For this project he needs: Motorola GM338 and GM339 mobile radios, both VHF and UHF versions. These are to be used on commercial frequencies as part of a railway heritage project and not Ham radio as such. The only caveat is the radios need to be less than 10 years old as the newer firmware is required. Alex is looking for 6+ units, so if you have multiples you would like to sell as a batch, please be in touch.

Programming cables, spare microphones etc would also be welcome. If someone has experience programming these radios and could spend an hour teaching Alex the tricks, that would be appreciated. Best to contact Alex by email : abseilwa@westnet.com.au

George VK6EV has a couple of items to give away:
  • Icom IC-O2A not working
  • ADMS-277 CD with USB-57B lead.
Please see VK Classifieds for details.

-Peter VK7PH, hopefully soon VK6HP, has moved to VK6 and is looking for some help with the erection of his antennas. He lives in Leeming, in a brick and tile house with a mezzanine level and an associated high-ish (20 foot) gabled roof. He's looking to put a lightweight 20’ fibre glass mast at the gable apex and secured into the mezzanine timber work. It’s a pretty modest set-up: just a ZS6BKW doublet, and some 450 ohm ladder line. The doublet runs diagonally across the block, and he’ll secure it to a tree at the back, and a tree or a pole in the front. If it wasn't for a recent leg operation, he'd be up there himself.


If you'd like to help a fellow amateur and want to take the opportunity to discuss amateur radio and astronomy, get in touch. You can contact Peter on his mobile 0400 801 531.

Peter VK7PH, hopefully soon VK6HP, has moved to VK6 and is looking for some help with the erection of his antennas. He lives in Leeming, in a brick and tile house with a mezzanine level and an associated high-ish (20 foot) gabled roof. He's looking to put a lightweight 20’ fibre glass mast at the gable apex and secured into the mezzanine timber work. It’s a pretty modest set-up: just a ZS6BKW doublet, and some 450 ohm ladder line. The doublet runs diagonally across the block, and he’ll secure it to a tree at the back, and a tree or a pole in the front. If it wasn't for a recent leg operation, he'd be up there himself.
If you'd like to help a fellow amateur and want to take the opportunity to discuss amateur radio and astronomy, get in touch. You can contact Peter on his mobile 0400 801 531.

FOR SALE: Tower in back yard
My father, VK6NAD, Kenneth Donald Dyke, known as Don, who died 10 years
ago, was for many years an operator on your network, he used to do the
signal testing for Morse Code and was an active communicator with
others on the network for many years.
Our family home is in Nedlands in Western Australia and there is an old
windmill tower in the backyard which he used to lift his signal wires.
We are now planning to sell the house and one of the things we need to
clear from the property is the tower.
Before we arrange for someone to remove it, we wondered if there was
anyone in your network who might like to take it.
kind regards
Pamela Griffiths
