Hello "HAMSTERS" Name here is Mike, K7MMA

  Judge Robert Burton, Elder Rd & Hangman Valley Rd, JD & CLA "2004"

Rest In Peace Darrel "1926-2018"


We lost a dear friend last evening 1-2-18, Darrel K7SGL or "Sure Good Looking" as Darrel would say. Darrel was like the wise Dad and friend to many of us. We could always catch Darrel on simplex frequency 147.54. He will surely be missed, thanks for all the great conversations Darrel. I have a few photos that I have saved over the years of Darrel and some of us.

Darrel and his wife Agnes when they got married.

Later in life, Agnes and Darrel

Darrel's favorite motorcycle, his 1948 Harley.

Darrel was very proud of his military service and we thank him for his service.

This was the day, Alan N7RLM, Duane KE7NUB and myself kidnapped Darrel and took him to lunch in Alan's Roadster, Darrel loved it and had a good time that day.

Rest In Peace Darrel, we miss you already.

And to all the friends Darrel had, Ham and otherwise...

Little buck near repeater site.

Fusion repeater finally moved into shop, 145.29 - Offset with 77.0 Tone


 Been busy this past year. Started to dig a 4'x4'x7' hole in May that turned into a 14 foot sink hole, so had to restart tower project in July. Took tower down last December in the snow and finally finished in August. The tower is a Tri Ex LM354 and was to only need 3 yards of concrete and ended up with 8 yards of concrete, so 32,000 lbs should hold the 1000 lb tower. Also threw in the hole a lot of metal including a Chevy and a Ford bumper ;). No kitchen sink. Saved about $500.00 by welding and building the rebar cage that goes in the hole.

 The 145.29 Fusion repeater is now on the new tower and in the shop. Also we put a new building at our Liberty Lake repeater site and finally have it ready for winter, the 145.17 repeater is in the new building.

 Been working on a bucket truck I bought in January, still have some work to do on it, but no hurry as I have another custom built Genie lift I put on a converted boat trailer and it works great for verticle work. Here are some photos of what I have been doing this past year. The bucket truck bumper you see painted yellow is actually 2 rails I harvested from an old repeater cabinet and welded together to make a step bumper, not pretty but works well.

That is all for now.
