Hello Rick and Shannon:
I read with interest your posts regarding forming an informal group of
interested coilers in Oregon. I live in Ashland and I too would like get
something started in our area as well.
Years ago, I was also a member of TCBA and still have many of their
newsletters. Many moons ago, I built an 811A VTTC and also a 24-inch SGTC. I
never developed either one of them to their full potential. The plate
glass/printing plate capacitor shattered with a loud bang while I was
tweaking the SGTC and I never got around to replacing it. I am a ham radio
pack rat and over the years I have acquired many NSTs and MOTs and even some
very healthy plate transformers with the intention of building TCs again. I
would like to get started by building a tabletop TC and then move back up to
a larger one. I feel a group of fellow TC'ers in Oregon would be of great
help to get me spurred into TC building again. I do occasionally get up
Portland for I belong to the Northwest Vintage Radio Society which meets in
Portland once a month and I usually attend their meetings 6-8 times a year
so I could combine those trips with some TC activity especially if it is
along the I-5 corridor.
Please count me in if you find there is enough interest to get a group
started here in Oregon.
Best regards, Bob Deuel de K2GLO
