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.
