Miscellaneous Stuff!!!

Does anyone remember Alex Dreier? I think he was a radio news man/announcer. I know he did commercials for Hallicrafter radios. I used to have a 45, (remember those???), :-) record of this commercial. Sure wish I still had it! I've searched the internet but could not find any listing of it and very little stuff on him also. From what I remember it was a pretty good commercial. Anyone have it hiding somewhere? Email me if you do! TNX!

UPDATE!!!

A fine gent named Rodney answered my above request! Thank you Rodney!
He sent me an email with a link for the exact message on the 45 that I was looking for! Cool!

Still looking for:

Anyone have the full length theme song to the 1980's show Friday Night Videos? This was a cool theme song. I've found clips but not the full length song. I even had made contact with one of the original artists who made it, no luck getting a copy from him, said he didn't have one.


Anyone remember SPESM? The Society for the Preservation and Encouragement of Six Meters. 

It was a six meter radio club back in the 70's and 80's in the mid west Chicago area. I've googled it but not much comes up.
My member number is 187. I've mentioned it in the club section of www.eham.net but only got a couple that remembered it. I'm hoping there are more out there! Let me know if you are still there! TNX!

 

IMPORTANT FIX!

BAOFENG UV 5R and UV5R V2+ RADIO SIREN FIX

To get rid of that annoying and ILLEGAL siren from being transmitted over the air, follow these steps.

1. Using the CHIRP program, click on the LEFT "SETTINGS" tab.
2. Click on "ADVANCED SETTINGS".
3. Find the "ALARM MODE" menu down arrow and select "SITE".
4. Go to the top "FILE" tab and select save.
5. Upload the saved file to the radio.
Done! 

Note: I don't know if this will work with any other Baofeng models, but it's worth the try!
