The story of T-813 transceiver
TNX to Cor Moerman - PA0VYL! *
Last year, Dr. Eng. Mihai Tarata - YO7LHN worked
as a research-worker at the University from Leuven (Belgium). There, evidently,
he met the Radioamateurs from the local radioclubs and among others' things
he found out that in Holland there is a museum of the amateurism
from this country, a museum that enjoys a well-deserved reputation.
Evidently, on the first occasion he travelled to
Holland to visit it. The impression was overwhelming. There he could
admire exhibits (all functional) from the beginning of
the radio transmissions up to the linea of the actual latest transceivers.
On this occasion he met Cor-PA0VYL, the initiator
and sustainer of this museum (that is on his propriety) so they became
friends. During their discussion about Romanian radioamateurism YO7LHN
told Cor about the organisation of the County Radioclub Dolj - YO7KAJ,
about the achievements and future hopes of the members of this Club to
realise vocal and digital retranslators, devices for RGA (fox hunting)
in 144 MHz-band as well as a link-radio between the Radioclub an the INTERNET-OLTENIA
provider (the sponsor who lets them have the WEB-page and E-mail address
on the Internet), etc..
Cor - PA0VYL was interested in the number of
the radioclub-members and he made a surprising offer:
- "If I donate 25 transceivers type Teletron
T-813 that you can modify in order to work in 144 MHz. will this help you
realise your goals?" asked the kind OM Cor. This conversation was
followed by an intense exchange of E-mails between Mihai-YO7LHN and the
Radioclub from Craiova, that completed all the necessary documents.
There we have to mention the solicitude of Mr. Prof.
Eugeniu Stefanescu, president of the Sportiv Municipal Club-Craiova who
immediately accepted the idea and supported all our efforts.
There been other visits and discussion between Mihai and Cor and the
offer became 35 transceivers, this fact determining the completion of another
forms with the new number. Finally, the transceiver arrived from Holland
through a charity society and was picked-up from Hunedoara - County by
YO7CKP-Marian and by Marcel YO7ARY who offered his car for transport.
The first 7 transceivers have been modified (absolutely
free of charge) by YO7EA - Sabin and YO7LHN - Mihai, according to
the documentation prepared on the Dutch-documentation, to function
in single-channel and they have been distributed to the radioamateurs in
Craiova. A new lot of 5 transceivers is now in work under the same conditions.
A team made up of YO7LJJ-Augustin, YO7LMU-Samir,
YO7EA-Sabin and YO7LMU-Mihai, is experimenting the modification of these
transceivers to function with programs on EPROM-memories on more channels.
Cor's offer increased, on Mihai's behalf, and it
seems that we are going to receive others 45 transceivers so that we can
offer to each member of our radioclub, as a loan, such a transceiver.
We thank a lot Mihai for his effort to help our
activity as radioamateurs and we would like to offer to generous HAM Cor
Moerman the quality of "Honorary Member"
of the County Dolj-Radioclub YO7KAJ.
Mni tks dr Om Cor for your kind offer and all the
We also thank Peter de Kroon who assured the equipment
transport to Romania.
Vy 73 to you es all PA-hams!
