    Re: Amateur Radio

    My father was into ham radio and he collected many ham radio units. When he passed away in 2000, none of us family members are into the hobby. My mother has been trying to sell the equipment, some of them work, some don't work, some we do not even know if they work at all, some are chassis that have some gut's in them, but unsure it they work at all or need repair. My father was going to make all of them in working condition but he never got around to it prior to him passing in 2000. We do know from records from 1959-1998 he had spent over $35,000.00 total for all of the equipment thoughout those years as he always kept reciepts, where most or all the reciepts are now, I can't tell you and my mother has no idea, she thinks they were thrown away cleaning out junk, he also had his ham radio license. Some radios are from WW2 bombers like the B-29 and B-17's, others are from radio base stations. He has many parts, vaccuum tubes, etc, he also has many ham radio magazines from the 1950's up. My mother sold some of the equipment after his death to help pay for funeral costs. She did have 1 man come by last year and he was trying low ball her that he would give her $1,000.00 for the whole lot. Of course she told him were to go and she and we are NO DUMMIES. She lives in Baton Rouge, La.

    If any of you KNOW of someone who can inspect the equipment so we can find out the value and also if one is interested in paying FAIR value for all of it or part of it. You can send me a PM with information. Otherwise it will just sit in the 75X15 back room of my mothers house collecting dust. The backroom is pretty much full, shelving and all with radios, parts, and equipment.

    EDDE....The best thing to do is go to a "hamfest" near you. It is kinda like a big flea market. Try and find out who is a ham in your area and just ask him about the hobby. He will fill you in on all the specifics. They are usually a real talkative bunch.

    Re: Amateur Radio

    EDDE Ham radio is fairly easy to get into and lots of fun also. Best bet is to find a ham radio club in your area and attend a few meetings or if there are none around order a Tech. class study guide from the American Radio Relay League. As far as radio expense they are like metal detectors. A entry level 2 meter rig can cost as little as $100.00 and you can build a simple dipole antenna for a few bucks. Then if you find you're really interested in amateur radio you can upgrade to a general then extra class license. Also the more your learn about amateur radio and how it works the more you will understand about how our metal detectors work.

    Has Ham radio turned bad now that anyone can
    get on?


    I only did a bit of shortwave late at night, hunting
    for different stations across the world.

    Got a lot of cool "stuff" when I sent a report in that
    I picked up the station.

    have a good un.

    Re: Amateur Radio

    Shermanville, nah everything is alive and well in ham radio, some people were concerned about ham radio going down the tubes when they dropped the morse code requirement from the licensing process. I haven't found that to be a problem at all. There will always be a few bad apples in any hobby like the guys that leave gates open and holes unfilled. Thank goodness they are few and far between. Out of all my many hobbies over the years I can honestly say amateur/ham radio and Th'ing both have the best and friendliest people involved.

    Re: Amateur Radio

    I never did get into the ham radio,mostly because i was really big in the 11 meter and was always talking with the locals or shooting skip.It has been awhile since i had a radio hooked up but was actually thinking of throwing a reunion party this year and see how many of the old CBer's show.

    Re: Amateur Radio

    Personally, I am absolutely clueless BUT I do have a few qualified co-workers who might take a look-see, that is if they're interested and have the time.

    Shoot me a pM...we can take it from there, or not.
