Amateur Radio enthusiasts are, by their very nature, people who are interested in the science of radio and communications. Many of us have been fascinated with radio since our earliest days and have experimented with devices such as crystal sets, lubes, transistors, and integrated circuits even before we could understand their function. We are often the early users' when new devices hit the marketplace and are alway s on the lookout for that new device or item at the ham flea market. This is particular ) true of those who work the amateur satellites, and we are anxious to try out ihe ' new bird with its latest bands, new devices, and unique functions. AMSAT, comprising many national and individual AMSAT organizations and a world w ide membership, has been a leading proponent of space communications 58 73 Amateur Radio Today * November 20

To do anything useful with a computer, you simply need the right peripherals. If you have what is required, the computer can perform interesting tasks. This article tells of how I used homemade peripherals to copy pictures mounted on the drum of a small deskfax or TELEFAX machine (as Western Union calls it), and display them in the HIKES screen of an Apple computer. 1 The machines were surplus a long time ago so you may find one at a flea market.

For general toting and flea-market work, the flexible rubber ducky makes a fine antenna, it i* shorter than a quarter wave and will not break off if you should accidentally sit down with the little rig in your back pocket.

If you look around, there are some excellent older power meters available on the surplus market. For example, the Hewlett Packard model 430C microwave power meter, in conjunction with the HP 477B thermistor mount, will measure power levels from 0.02 mW to 10 mW at frequencies from 10 MHz to 10 GHz. I have seen HP 430Cs at flea markets for 5. While the thermistor mounts are harder to find, probably because they can be blown up, they can often be found in the 30 range. Later versions of this instrument, the 431, 432, 435 and 436, are improved models with temperature-compensated power sensors, lower and higher power scales, higher accuracy, digital readout and so forth. Of course, there are similar instruments from other manufacturers that show up at flea markets and surplus outlets as well. the meter out ahead of time, at least measure the input to the thermistor mount with a good ohmmeter. It should be 50 ohms. Power attenuators, also common at flea markets, should be tested as well...
5.9 to 6.4-GHz microwave relay band work well and are readily available at flea markets, but surplus mixers for this band are scarce, so homebrewing is necessary. One option, the KK7B no-tune transverter, has a simple bilateral mixer for this band, used for both receive and transmit, so switching is needed to use separate power amplifier and receive preamp.4 Having separate mixers for transmit and receive is preferable so that each path may be optimized

There was some sort of hassle over the flea market not being opened on Friday and a good deal of flak went up over that, And just to make the situation worse, the opening on Saturday was accompanied by a deluge-It cleared off in the afternoon just fine, but there were an awful lot of very unhappy fleas for a while.
