Its 6 am 11/1/2017 and I am up to have coffee and head north to ride quads with a friend one more time before winter really sets in. I am excited but its for something else. We have been given free hosting for the buzzards web pages ! I have also registered the domain name and I will soon be working on the new pages. We cant just move the stuff from webs.com to the new server so I am creating totally new pages. It shouldn't take too long . Be advised some things might get lost in the shuffle but hopefully we can replace them . We should have a bang up picnic this summer also as I am pretty sure we have everything covered as far as money goes.

For now this web page will be updated until I get the new one up and running.  If you hear Vince KA8CSH on the net please thank him for the free web hosting and welcome him to the group as he is our newest member . 73 ..... de Dave N8DC net manager

Since I dont have a color printer from now on all certificates will be in black and white which look pretty good or the other option is to let me know and I will email you your certificate filled out and dated with your number as a PDF file and you can print it out in color. This seems to be the current trend from a lot of special event stations and I think its a great option for us to use also. 

I would like to thank Jack W9OWO for his generous donation of 25.00 in memory of  Marty KK4PI. Here is what he had to say ....


Thank you for the opportunity to remember my friend and former neighbor, Marty Simmonds, KK4PI. Marty was in a nursing home and badly wanted to check in to the Buzzard's Roost. Larry Wheeler, W9QR and I worked very hard to make it happen. Larry finally got permission to put a wire antenna in the attic of Marty's building. They only had one firm and fast rule: we could not drill any holes, anywhere. Understandable because they had so many wires and pipes running throughout the building.  Anyway, when we were ready to install the wire, Larry discovered a firewall in the attic every 12 feet! Marty died in August 2015.  We never got him on the net.
Feel free to put my donation on the website. Maybe it will encourage some others.

Again . Thanks Jack and RIP Marty .

Well MIS Hamcon was good. I made a purchase of a pretty nice Ameritron AL-1500 legal limit amplifier. I have a couple things to straighten out on it but for the price I payed its a great deal. Next swap for me should be Ft Wayne and I hope we can have a meet and greet there on Saturday .
I sold my Icom-7600 the other day and I have set up the TS-2000 with anticipation of a new Icom 7610 about February of 2018. Its been a learning curve with the new amp and the TS-2000 as my new low band rig but I did work a new one for CW this morning 10/17/2017.
Looking forward to see you all at Ft Wayne.

To all of you that have made a donation to the net I thank you ! We are getting close to registering the real domain name.  And there is a good possibility we may move the site to a better server that doesnt require me to reformat everything to meet this sites style !

 Gene KK4DIY will be headed to the south about the end of October and we will  need a net control for Mondays until he gets back in March or April.

Keep checking back for new announcements and news.
