N2AAM takes you from Zero RF to 300Ghz in 35 minutes

Dave Marthouse

Dave Marthouse, N2AAM, gave a wonderfully informative Audio Zoom on a favorite of many Hams and DX listeners. His lecture turns Q&A on many SWL topics. A few guests brought their own mystery sounds they were looking to gain more clarity and,, or definition.

If you’d like a little history on Radio Frequencies without too much into the technical nuts and bolts this is a great treat for you.

Interested individuals pursuant of learning and doing more in the SWL/DX world may reach out to:

WX2R@arrl.net Subject line: SWL

Ed, WX2R, will place you on the SWL SIG email list as soon as more direction for future lectures, presentations, meetings or hands-on events start to solidify.

Please enjoy the seminal beginnings of this FLARC SWL Special Interest Group.

Feel free to share this with your friends

We thank you for your interest, 73-

Miss your Tesla Presentation??? It’s on YouTube – NOW!

A very fine presentation!!!!

Share it around to family, friends, and your neighborhood Geeks and Nerds!!!!

Fair Lawn (NJ) Amateur Radio Club’s July Video “Kawfee Tawk” Program
Highlights Nikola Tesla’s Early Technological Development

The Fair Lawn (NJ) Amateur Radio Club’s July monthly video “Kawfee Tawk” program is now on the FairLawnARC.org YouTube Channel.

“Nikola Tesla – A Science, Technology, Engineering & Math (STEM) Perspective” was presented by Charles M. Cebula, P.E., Adjunct Associate Professor, Ocean County College, Toms River, NJ. Charles is a FLARC club member and holds the call AC2ZU.

This presentation provides information on Tesla’s early life and how it helped to nurture his ability to become a great inventor and visionary in the technological advances that we enjoy today. The presentation focused on four specific STEM type related accomplishments, to include: Tesla’s support to Thomas Edison with some improvements on his DC Generator (despite his desire to convince Edison to switch to AC Power Distribution), his development of the AC Induction Motor making his desire to promote AC Power Distribution as the world standard as practical reality, his development of the Tesla Coil, which formed the basis for future development of radio and wireless transmission and his amazing discoveries of the significance of the numbers 3,6,9 and how it relates to patterns with some physical world and live significance.

Now retired, Cebula worked at Ft. Monmouth, NJ for the US Army as an Electronics Engineer (Civilian) involved with Army Command, Control and Communications Systems (1972-2009). He later worked as an Electrical Engineer for Computer Science Corporation and was also an Adjunct Instructor in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Dept at New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) from 1982-2009 teaching courses in both Electrical Engineering and Electrical Engineering Technology.

Shortwave Receiver available from retired ham

CONTACT this person directly at the email / phone shown below —

My name is Rob, from Oakland, NJ.

My dad is 88 years old, with Alzheimer’s disease. I am helping my parents clean out some things from their garage, and they have an old ham radio, from the 1950s or 60s. There is a picture attached. Not sure if it works, is repairable, or may be of value for parts to restore a similar unit.

I found your website, and saw a buy/sell/swap blog, but it seems like that is for members, only. Would you be able to guide us in the direction of anyone who might be interested in this type of item. If you know anyone who may be Interested, could you please forward this
email to them?

My Name is Elaine Reinoso. My grandfather recently passed away leaving us several HAM Radios and accessories. We would love to find them a loving home and know if they are of value to anyone wishing to buy them. Here’s a list of the brands and models as listed on the Radios that we can decipher.

YAESU FT-101B

YAESU FV-101B

YAESU YS-2000

YAESU YC-601 Landliner

Collins (4 pieces including 30L-1)

GSC 20R 20AMO

SBE model 34

MFJ VERSA TUNER V

Hallicrafters (2 of them)

We have pictures of the radios that I can sent you a link see.

We also have a bunch microphones and what looks like light bulbs [tubes?] that goes to one set of radios.

Please let me know if you, anyone on in your club, or anyone you know might be interested.

We’d also really appreciate information on what to do with them if no one wants them.

We feel it would be a real shame to put them in the garbage.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Sincerely,Elaine.
