The Skeeter Hunt is another opportunity to have some fun operating 5W code and 10W SSB. Check out their page on line for the rules. I understand some members may be going out into the field to operate. More info at the meeting.
Looking forward to our annual picnic on September 22, so keep that afternoon open!

What I have been up to
I have an Icom IC-730 transceiver and PS-15 power supply for sale. This combination seems to be going for over $300 plus shipping (usually greater than $50) on Ebay and some other sites, but I am offering it to BCRC club members for $250.
The radio is a good “starter” rig. It was built the early 1980’s. The rig has been put on the air, and it covers the 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, and 10 meter bands, using AM, SSB, and CW. It puts out about between 130W and 150W into a dummy load on all bands. The power supply matches the transceiver, and is controlled by the radio. Both units are very clean and in very good condition. They were not used very much. I do not have the original manuals but I have downloaded copies and they are available.
Please contact me for more information at email@example.com.
