"Hints" and "Tricks"

If you are like me you have an assortment of now obsolete computer cables, such as for printer parallel ports.  Before you finally get around to throwing them out, consider that they are good sources of hook-up wire.  Case in point:  A parallel printer cable I have contains 25 wires, each 24 gauge.  The cable is rated for 80 degrees C (176 F) and the wires feel like Teflon.  Maybe not, but with the high temperature rating they should be plenty good for many applications.  See the attached photo of the nicely coded wires on this cable.

President's Corner

January 2023

The new year 2023 is here. I hope everyone has a merry Christmas and a safe happy New Year. Field Day 2023 is June 24. Something Jay will be reminding everyone, I’m sure. Jay has agreed to be our Field Day coordinator again. While the Date is not set in stone yet, pencil it Saturday October 28 for the Ensor Auction. 

It sounds that the number on public service events will be getting back to normal. The three Johnson County Parks events that our club supports are on the Calendar, Shawnee Mission Triathlon July 9, Kill Creek Triathlon Aug 12, and Kill Creek Triathlon for Kids Aug 19. The Johnson County Parks department really provides us great support for Field Day, so please think about supporting at least these three public service events. 

Friday January 13 will be our first club meeting of the new year. Bring you program ideas to the meeting. Along with ideas, have a person in mind to present that program.
