------------------- Listings begin -------------- From: Howard D. Lyons, Sr. Email address for following person, disguised (see preface): [[ndWEATHER-tur tleTheAThingmin.midco. net]] Date: 20 Aug 2002 Need help assembling and/ or soldering the new Hub / Baro ? I can help with a few of them--51 year as a ham, 26 year as an elect. tech, former owner/ operator of a manufacturing company. I can also do calibrations. Send me an e-mail off-list and we'll see what can be worked out. Howard Lyons Minot, ND USA === From: C. Dennis Jones Email address for following person, disguised (see preface): [[dennisMICROLAN jTheAThinguniversal data.com]] Subject: [weather] Building the Barometer or Hub Date: 20 Aug 2002 I'll be happy to build the Barometer or Hub for anyone that needs it. I'm in the Charlotte, NC area. Contact me off list. I'm also interested in buying any kits that you have, but no longer want. === From: Rich, KE4GNK Email address for following person, disguised (see preface): [[rkrum TheAThingDALLASknology. net]] My situation at August 29, 2002 is as follows: I am located in Huntsville, Alabama, USA. I have received both of my kits from Alan. I expect that it will take about another 2-3 weeks to build the prototype, test, and fine calibrate for my station altitude, which is about 944FT above MSL. I do not have a good method of modifying the HUB hammond box as yet, may not need it for my installation, and therefore do not plan to offer mechanical modifications for the box. I do not plan to commit to building for others until I can assure myself that a quality, reliable product can be generated with the facilities I have. I am a highly-skilled engineer, with excellent soldering abilities to Mil-spec and best commercial practice, but surface mount components are a bit small for my current tools. Calibration for completed kits for use at other altitudes would be based upon using the initial potentiometer settings from the published calibration software tool, and would not be guaranteed to be accurate at the user's elevation without further analysis and fine adjustment according to the published build and calibrate data. I will not be providing an extra calibration tool. Cost for building each kit is $15.00, including return shipping via US priority mail to CONUS addresses. Other shipping methods would be extra. Turnaround time would be about 2-3 weeks due to a currently heavy workload at work and home. Potential work travel may impact this schedule. Understand that the prime emphasis I have is on quality and reliability of the build process, and that will require enough time to assemble, thoroughly clean, and test the boards. The components and boards appear to be of very high quality and very well laid out. Hope that answers most of your questions. Feel free to correspond further with me at the knology e-mail address. --Rich, KE4GNK === From: Ray Dzek Email address for following person, disguised (see preface): [[rd zekTheAThingsolarWEATHERbugs .com]] Subject: Re: [weather] Soldering Help Date: 20 Aug 2002 What the heck... I didn't even order a kit, but I do know which end of a soldering iron is which. I'm in the San Jose, CA area. I can solder it up, but you are on your own to calibrate it. Contact me off list please. === From: The Fullmers (Dave) Email address for following person, disguised (see preface): [[fullMICROLANmer4 TheAThing earthlink.net]] Subject: Re: [weather] BP/Hub project--Call for builders Date: 20 Aug 2002 As Alan has requested, I am posting my name as one who would be willing to help out with the building of the BP/Hub kits. I am in the Seattle area, and check my email at least once a day. So please let me know if you'd like a hand putting one of these together (via this email address) and I'll forward my home phone so we can talk about it. I have ordered one of the BP kits (but haven't received it yet) , so that's what I'll have practice building. If you'd like me to lend a hand with the Hub, I'm willing to do that too -- but someone is going to have to be brave enough to be the first one :-)!! - Dave - === From: lostbowyer (Glenn Skinner) Email address for following person, disguised (see preface): [[lostMICROLANbowyer TheAThinglost bowyer.com]] Subject: [weather] RE: kit builders Date: 21 Aug 2002 I've built several baro boards, and I have two hub kits I'm going to practice with. I live in Stow Massachusetts, if anyone needs assistance contact me off line.
