The CARP Fireworks Stand is coming soon. The stand will be open from June 28 through July 4, 2016.
This is CARPs major fundraiser which allows us to maintain and upgrade the repeater system, pay for meeting location rental, insurance, provide the summer and Christmas parties and pay for the building of the CARP Communications Trailer. The more volunteers we get to help with the stand helps make things run easier.
The T-Hunt scheduled for Saturday, May 14 has been postponed. A handful of hunters are not able to make this particular hunt for different reasons. After conferring with Marty (K6KTP) who is the Fox, I am rescheduling the event for the next T-Hunt date of Saturday, July 16.
The Spring 2016 auction will be held April 23th at Crossroads Church, 1360 N Johnson, Corner of Johnson & Arbor, Turlock CA. Doors open at 8:00 AM, Auction begins at 9:00 AM. There will be a $5 charge to obtain a bidder’s paddle.

Another fine Saturday morning brought together the greatest T-Hunters in the central California area. With their batteries charged, the four teams beat the bushes and enjoyed another fine T-Hunt. The fox for this hunt was Mike (KD6LDA) who used a yagi antenna on a 10’ pole secured with a tripod. The main T-Hunt radio transmitted about five watts. The smaller low power transmitter used only 15mW and was hidden in some tall grass nearby.
If you enjoy ham radio kit building, then you are definitely going to want to hear about the MDT DSB QRP transceiver kit from ozQRP. This article will be more of a real-world, operational performance review of this radios’ capabilities, not a walkthrough on how to build it.
The 40 meter MDT kit(Minimalist Double Sideband Transceiver) is produced by ozQRP, a company based in Australia. This is an absolutely amazing QRP radio kit for the 40 meter band and is a great option for those ham radio operators who are new to HF and are looking for affordable means of getting on the air, for those looking for lightweight/compact rigs for camping/backpacking, or for those who just love kit building and are looking for their next project.
