Work Party Successful

Today’s work party was very successful and a lot of future infrastructure was put in place.  We placed conduit buried to the driveway for a near future camera so members can check out the drive way condition.  Also conduit  was run to the telephone pole to move the inverted L over to the wooden telephone pole.  And finally a conduit was put in place to that empty far tower so we can put an antenna on top of it.

Thanks go out to:

Construction of the Hallicrafters SCR-299

Interesting find from John N3EQP

In 1944, this short subject film was produced by the Jam Handy Organization and sponsored by the Hallicrafters Company. It shows the construction of the SCR-299 and dramatizes its use during World War II. This is a B&W documentary presenting a look at the manufacturing and use of the (now defunct) Hallicrafters Company’s SCR-299 “mobile communications unit.”
