3 March 2013 - mirage335
USRP, related radio gear (some of which was built by me), wire, low-quality soldering iron, 2.4GHz R/C transmitter/receiver pair. Attempting to set up ham radio antenna at new QTH. Additionally, going to try repairing a model R/C plane with the R/C transmitter/receiver pair. Will return unused radio gear and supplies to HacDC when done, and donate for anything used. EDIT: Have returned some of the supplies as of 3/28/2014. Still borrowing USRP and soldering iron. RC plane may be able to use R/C transmitter/receiver pair if given new servomotors. Also borrowed a pair of decent pilers and wire cutters. EDIT: Borrowed SMT tweezers as of 4/14/2014, since my own set may not be adequate for an urgent project. Also borrowed M3 screwdriver bit. EDIT: Also borrowed soldering iron tip, while waiting on RMA from two other tips. Will probably bring back with some of the other materials within a week or two, time-ultra-critical project still underway. EDIT: Have returned almost everything. Still occasionally borrowing a few screwdrivers and other non-critical items, as some of my own have failed.

Prusa Mendel, and associated hardware. Minor repairs in progress, ETA return Thursday, January 2, 2014. EDIT: Returned Saturday, January 4, 2014. Performance and reliability vastly improved.

Prusa Mendel, PLA feedstock, M3 screws, some tape, some tools. Emergency maintenance in progress, ETA return Thursday, April 24, 2013. EDIT: Returned a while ago, seems the information was lost on wiki.

Diligent Spartan-3E Starter Board (Labeled HacDC #12). I want to see if the SUMP logic analyser HDL can be modified and installed on this board.

December 18, 2012 - mirage335
Project Salvage components. Most should become valuable electronic test equipment at HacDC and absolutely must not be trashed. EDIT: Returned a while ago to the test cart. Connectorization of some parts (eg. mixers) still progressing.

July 21, 2012 - mirage335
Borrowing Ham radio gear this weekend, as described in the previous struck through entry. EDIT: Returned. Awesome data obtained.

June 29, 2012 - mirage335
Borrowing Ham radio gear tomorrow. Specifically, IC-718 radio, antenna tuner, RF power meter, balun (if available), PSU, some feedline, some wire, and a measuring tape (if >12'). Will also borrow some of my own objects at the space, specifically a UPS (for its 12V battery) and a magnetic loop antenna. Leaving my name and number on the ham radio cart in case anyone needs the radio or has questions. This is exclusively for the purpose of diagnosing HacDC's ham radio issues as documented on the mailing list. Postponed due to severe weather and power disruption. Radio not borrowed yet.

- Ancient (20 years+) semi-working AM/FM/WB/CB radio. Found in basement. AM function never worked, in sorry shape, needs repair, so I'm going to try repairing it as far as possible. Will be back at the space in ~2 weeks. EDIT: Returned. After mostly mechanical repairs, AM, FM, CB functions work well.

'cause, you know, all the cool kids were doing it.
I discovered that the unit I borrowed is flaky - after a few seconds of wearing it while powered up the display flickers and goes dead. I think that the cable leading from the power pack to the visor has a bad connection. When I get time I'll tear this one down and see if I can repair it.
