As a follow up to Steves comment, Sony makes a handheld DAT recorder
with both VOX and time stamp recording.  It is under $600 at the
local electronics emporium.

(Trey, I hope this message is not too far away from being a contest topic).

I just put up a tower and I want to run low-loss FLEXABLE 50 ohm coax.  Not
interested in hard-line at this time. Can someone tell me the preferred type
these days? (The antennas will include VHF.)
Please mail me direct. (Tim_Coad at

The date and time for the next internet SprINT have been determined.  This
advance warning is intended to help you can keep that time open.

It will be on Saturday, the 23rd of July (Sunday UTC) at 0100Z for two hours.

There are no changes to the rules and it will still be 2 hours long.  
I will post the complete rules on the reflector when it gets closer.
