I waited 40 years too long to jump into this wonderful hobby. I'm makng up for lost time now. Building pre-amps, antennas, looking into satellite communications. So much to explore, so much to learn.
Tear down and learn up of the ol' IC-720A. It's fun being a technician again.
My vanity call sign was selected in honor of a great Elmer and mentor to many, many hams and electronic technicians. Please see the note below.
In honor of Charlie Schlieper, N5TD, Silent Key, Temple Amateur Radio Club is establishing the N5TD Memorial Scholarship Fund. Visit http://www.tarc.org to make an online donation to the N5TD Memorial Fund, c/o the Temple Amateur Radio Club. All donations will go toward establishing the Charles R. Schlieper Technical Scholarship at Temple College. The Temple Amateur Radio Club will be asked to (at least) match your contributions. Charlie enjoyed teaching more than any other aspect of amateur radio. Every club activity was an opportunity for Charlie to teach what he knew to others. The classes he taught were obviously so, but his Field Day setups, his meeting presentations, even his informal experimenting reported at coffee were opportunities to share with the rest of us what he had recently learned. Please honor Charlie's tradition of teaching with your contri- bution. You may also contribute at the next club meeting, or by mailing your check to the Temple Amateur Radio Club, PO Box 616, Temple, TX 76503.
