VHF Micor Mobiles FREE at #GREENCountryhamfest

I have three 45-watt VHF Micor Mobiles that were in the ham band range when I bought them.

If anyone wants them, I will bring to the Green Country hamfest and they are yours, no charge. Otherwise, they go to the junk yard.

I would hope that if someone takes them, they are at least familiar with that series of radios since I will offer no support for them. It is hard enough to keep up with the new equipment without having to refresh my memory on something that I have not touched in 10 or more years.

If you want the packet frequency channel elements left in the radios I will do so. Otherwise, they will be removed and tossed in the junk.

The next All Ham Dinner will be held Thursday, January 17th, 2019, at 6:30 pm. This dinner will be at the Golden Corral, 1501 SW 74th, (North side of the north service road of I-240) in south Oklahoma City. No RSVP is needed, show up, get your meal, and join the fun in their large banquet room.

Winter 2019 Classic Exchange CW

The CW Classic Exchange will take place Sunday Jan 13 1300Z to Jan 14 0700Z and Tuesday Jan 15 1300Z to Jan 16 0700Z

The CX is a no-pressure contest celebrating the older commercial and Home Brew equipment that was
the pride and joy of ham shacks many decades ago. The object is to encourage restoration, operation
and enjoyment of this older Classic equipment.

You need not operate a Classic rig to participate in the CX. You may use any rig in the contest
although new gear is a distinct scoring disadvantage as your multipliers are directly related to the age
of the equipment you use! However, you can still work the "great ones" with modern equipment.

Suggested CX Frequencies (+/- QRM)
CW
160M 80M 40M 20M 15M 10M 6M 2M
1.810 3.545 7.045 14.045 21.045 28.045 50.095 144.100

Bonus Points for the Winter 2019 CX:

Bonus #1: 500 Points for each dynamotor powered TX and RX that is qualified.

Bonus #2: 500 Points for each Johnson transmitter, amplifier, SSB adapter, and VFO that is qualified.

Bonus #3: 500 Points for each Knight transmitter, receiver, and VFO that is qualified.

2000 points max for each bonus per mode.
