Hey, guys. I have a large sat dish to give away. Use it for radio, build a radio telescope, radar or to hold a giant salad.

Not accepting any money. Just take it away as I now have a much smaller dish on the roof. Dish is in working order and complete.

The new GPS locked VK7RST 6m Beacon (50.297MHz) is on the test bench and currently being soak tested. It cycles through CW, FCW, JT4B & JT65 and is only low power with 10W and into a Moonraker 6m Vertical. Final installation will be into half wave horizontal dipole.

Please note it may be switched off for short periods of time for adjustment. Local reports welcome.

I will have the completed units up at the Domain on Wednesday night at the Experimenter's group.

For many younger people, CB's (and even walkie-talkies which used CB Channels!) were their first experience with radio! The CBs of the day could also be quite stylish!
