Ham Radio: VP9KL, IRLP node 7995


Hey.. Thanks to ICOM who sent me a nice new ID-5100 for free I'm now on D-Star under my user ID here.. But last night I managed to lot into a reflector (12A) (IRLP has those too) and WOW.. Made contact with KA6LMS.

For those who do not know about KA6LMS.. The Last Man Standing radio club.

Tim Taylor (Mike Baxter on LMS) is a licensed Ham. he was not when the show started but got his license. The producer and over half the staff. including some of the other actors and actresses are also licensed hams. During their LUNCH break which for me is Tues Evening (2300 hrs universal time) they get on the air.. The Basement Radio Room set you occasionally see used.. Those are real radios.. one of them is an Icom ID-5100 (Same radio I have) and that's what the operator was using for the LMS net last night according to the radio.

DSTAR (Digital System Technology for Amateur Radio) Is a digital radio mode were not only can we talk but the radios share some digital info like .. In both My and LMS case the model of the radio and our GPS address. if the operator so chooses. So John knew where I was located And my name both from the Radio.

Lots of fun
If you think you might like to get into Ham Radio WWW.ARRL.ORG is the starting point.


Home is where I park it.

So - what does a typical antenna look like - both home based setup and one you take on the road? Will check out WWW.ARRL.ORG

Just a quick note, Instant Pot has been absorbed by someone. No more original ones.

We have the 3 quart and it's a good size for two. With say a pot roast and some potatoes it's two hearty servings or a bit of left overs. With rice it's almost too much as you have to cook a set amount in it.

As for time savings, it's a bit of a false economy. Add in 10 min for heatup, 5 for cooldown, prep time and all the dishes you still need to wash and it's not THAT awesome any more. Still a keeper though.

Instant Pot ? I think that is the website where ya order marijuana thru the mail , kinda like Amazon .


I was going to say something like that but, you beet me to it.

I never heard of one of these Instant Pot things until now. I see how for some people it could be handy. But, for me, I see no need for it. Just another gadget to set around in my kitchen taking up space.

But, to each their own.





P.S. can you cook beets in your Instant Pot . [emoticon]

I must be a little older than you wa8yxm, to me last man standing has more to do with military organizations. Mine, the USS Growler SSG577 Association is looking at the last man standing. I will be presenting a LMS bottle of Scotch to the crew very soon. We're mostly in our very late 70's and early 80's. The presentation box for the scotch has no seams and no way of opening it. I don't think any of us will ever drink that bottle.
