USS Turner Joy Amateur Radio Club

"Clean up the Shack" Work Day, February 5, 2011

There were 5 members and one applicant on the ship, Ralph Duncan, Ron Snow, Steve Boerner, Robby Robinson, Dan Kono and myself.

Dan relocated transmitters, amplifiers and receivers back to the radio room. He also assisted Ron.

Ron completely rewired the electric panel in our shack, the ECM room. He wired 5 outlets that are wye connected 120v with ground and neutral. He installed a neutral bus in the panel as well. Ralph is responsible for two new operating positions at a new maple veneered table. Ralph also brought the Yaseu FT-101 on long term loan.

Robby worked on a 20 meter vertical antenna. He made a few contacts.

Steve and myself looked for a good location to mount a transformer bank in the aft of the ship.
