the area might be interested in buying the used equipment listed below.
I will accept any reasonable offer, although I want to sell it all
together.  Any advice about selling this equipment would be appreciated.

Thanks very much!

Here is a news release that might be of interest to DFMA members:

Motorola Solutions Takes Full Ownership of Vertex Standard LMR (12/28/11)

Motorola Solutions is taking full ownership of the Vertex Standard LMR (land mobile radio) business.  The effective date for the reorganization will be Jan. 1, 2012. Motorola Solutions previously owned 80 percent of the company.

"There is no change for Motorola Solutions customers and partners," said Tama McWhinney, corporate communications, Motorola Solutions. "Vertex Standard LMR products will continue to be available through the normal Vertex Standard channels."

Jun Hasegawa, president and CEO of Vertex Standard, announced the corporate reorganization. "After four years of joint venture with Motorola, we have decided to transfer the Vertex Standard LMR business to Motorola and focus on Amateur, Marine and Air-band business," he said in a letter to customers.

Vertex Standard will once again be Yaesu Musen; a name business partners have been familiar with for over 50 years, Hasegawa said.

Dear Fellow Amateur,
The Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club- WB2JSM is putting out an SOS ( save our station) call for your help. The Hall of Science Amateur Radio Club has been demonstrating amateur radio to the visiting public for over 35 years as an independent exhibit at the New York Hall of Science Children's Museum located in Queens, New York. The museum is undergoing a major renovation project and wants us out for good. We have started a petition which we want you to sign and circulate for us in order to help preserve a great ham radio asset by showing officials at the museum that you value what we do. Please visit http://tinyurl.com/6ljost to read more about our plight and sign our petition. We have logged over 10,000 contacts from the station and even if you're not in our log your help will let us continue to talk up amateur radio and create the next generation of ham radio operators.
Respectfully Submitted

NCER Emergency Disaster Communications Teams Seek Members Print E-mail

The following article has been distributed to all area ham clubs, and is appearing in numerous area newspapers this month.

NCER Emergency Disaster Communications Teams Seek Members

(Zebulon)    The 38th Regiment of the North Carolina Emergency Reserves (NCER) is seeking capable communications personnel to form a specialized Communications Unit for service in its 18-county area of Operation.

NCER is a statewide disaster-response organization which has seven regimental areas established to cover the state in time of emergency.  “Maintaining basic effective communication is among the top vital necessities in a disaster”, says COL Dave Tuttle, the regiment’s commander. “The ability to provide relief and rescue can’t depend on downed or severed telephone lines, overloaded cell towers, or power outages that incapacitate e-mail and fax service.”

“Even at the family level, a simple system of simple low-cost walkie-talkies can be a lifesaving forethought”, Tuttle added.  Simple FRS (Family Radio Service) radios can cost as little as $12.00/pair.

Amateur Radio Operators, former military M.A.R.S. operators, and even long-time Citizens’ Band (CB) hobbyists perform a vital function in disaster relief.  NCER is seeking all of the above and more with an eye toward complete coverage of both localized areas and intrastate disaster zones.  Members of ham radio and CB clubs, as well as former members of groups like REACT (Radio Emergency Associated Communications Teams) will find a suitable place in NCER’s plan.

While NCER has some of its own radio systems, members also use their own personal mobile and portable equipment to establish fully operational networks.  The organization offers FREE communications training, as well as a wide variety of FREE training in other phases of disaster-response, as well as FEMA courses at no charge.

An overall view of the group and it’s mission can be found on the official web site at www.ncer.us , where there is also a page dedicated to the 38th RGT.  The area of the 38th consists of the line of Harnett, Johnston and Wayne counties going northward to the Virginia border, encompassing 18 counties in all.

General inquiries about membership in NCER may be directed through the web -site or by phone to (910) 717-2627.  Questions specific to communications issues for the regiment can be directed to COL Tuttle, (amateur call sign NC4DT) at (919) 269-3453 or via email at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
