N6VGU Memorial Dinner
Friday, July 11, 2014
Amateur Radio lost a saint. Darren Rumas was a huge influence on the ham radio community, especially 435. He was a good friend and mentor of mine. He fixed my broken equipment literally hundreds of times, as well as everyone else's. He was affectionately known as "The Moo," "Pugsley", "Peter Rabbit", "Cock Robin", "Gregory Pecker" and more. He was a man of integrity, friend to all hams and a technical wizard of all things above 50Mhz. Without Darren, there would be no 435 as it is today. More to follow...
since Darin welched on the bet!
To add your photos, or download them all via FTP:
KF6GK was a model ham!
The above file is a data file for the UV-5R containing all the local
vhf and uhf repeaters, GMRS pairs and MURS frequencies.
1. Right-click on the link and "save as" to your Baofeng directory. Usually it is C:\Program Files\BF5R_CPS\
2. Open the software. From the pull-down menu on the left select "file" and "open"
3. Highlight the file (Simone.dat) and double-click it.
You may now examine the file and edit it to suit your needs. Don't forget to rename it and save the new file before you write it to the radio. Enjoy.
Special thanks to Mitch, kf6fst and Simone, k6dxn for providing the file.
NOTE: THIS FILE IS FOR THE UV-5R ONLY and will not work with the UV-3R or the Wouxun radios!
The good stuff is 16 minutes in.
W6DEK.COM is an Amateur Radio related web site serving the Notorious 147.435 MHz Repeater in Los Angeles, and the entire Ham Radio Community. The 435 Repeater is owned by Roger Bly K6MWT, and is operating under the callsign, N6BHU. The output is 147.435 MHz and the input is 146.400 MHz with a pl of 103.5 Hz. The repeater operates from Oat Mountain in the North San Fernando Valley.
In the beginning there was 435.org. Later on it became apparent that the needs of 435 were growing. At the same time, the webmaster of 435.org KD6GDB, was finding less time to keep up with his site. 435's web presence was revived when a newbie named Gary Elmer KG6DVO, purchased the domain name 435online.com. Gary created a cool site for us jam packed with lots of features and 435online became 435's "Official" Web Site.
W6DEK.COM was originally designed purely for entertainment. As time went on, it grew to a relatively large and cumbersome endeavor itself. W6DEK.COM is now designed to provide a service to the 147.435MHz Repeater, as well as the entire amateur radio community in general. This site is open to everyone, amateurs and non amateurs alike. Since I have unlimited disk space here, W6DEK.COM is now hosting the 435 435 DVR Archives, 435 Movie Archives, and the 435 Photo Archives. All of these are available by directory listings.
