ICOM IC-03AT belt clip screw K6PDGCA on 4/6/14
My local ACE Hardware had some M3 x 0.5 x 4mm for $0.15 a piece. They seem to work OK. I hesitate because the remaining original screw is considerably shorter, like 1mm; just enough to clinch the case.

I'm looking for some star lock washers that will eat up some of that extra length and, maybe, make the clip more secure. ACE only had wavy washers starting at M4 diameter. The attendant suggested Locktite as his preference instead of a lock washer. We'll see if I can find the washer for clearance, if nothing else.

Thank you everyone for participating, sending bug reports and comments, and I especially thank all the elmer volunteers who have helped me over the years. It is time for me to move on.

Through most of 2013 a red banner was displayed, "The Ham Locator is broken. Repair time is unknown."

The last time captured what appears to be a fully functional page was 2012/02/25.

There is a wealth of information available on-line.


You'll notice that refers to the ARRL's EC-001 manual, The ARRL Introduction to Emergency Communication Course.

How will we access this material in 5, 10, 15 years?

To a retired professional programmer, such as myself, who tried to answer this question for my Engineering Department customers, this is the key question for any data that is valuable to a community.

The ARRL just celebrated its Centennial. Is any of the technical information available in any of the past issues of QST totally obsolete? Or do they, at least, provide an educational opportunity for new participants in the Amateur Service? We know how to conserve paper documents. Publishers of community knowledge need to judge data formats in light of the need of future generations.
