Check out the Ham Radio Equipment for Sale
Stan asked the Board and me to Liquidate His Ham Equipment, and this site catalogs the equipment for sale and the suggested price.
Stan Rothman / WA2NRV passed away April 23rd at the ripe old age of 80! Stan was a long-time member of the Westchester Emergency Communications Association.
He served on the Board of Directors for many years and was our Club President at one time.
As the current Director-at-Large, Stan served as the liaison between members and the Board to present ideas that members suggested to him.
He was a staunch advocate that WECA is more than a Ham Radio Club; he insisted to all that we are Family.
Whenever there was someone who was ill, in the hospital or had a happy event, he would send a personal card to cheer them up and show that we, as a group, cared about them. He also sent cards to the family members of an SK (Silent Key referring to someone who has passed and no longer could use a Morse Code Key).
Stan always talked about Club Projects, hidden transmitter hunts, and getting the members together for some social event. He led our VE (Volunteer Examiner) -- FCC Ham Radio Licensing Examination team.
He headed both our Elmer Program -- giving support to members who needed some specific help and headed the WA2NRV Loan Closet, which lent out equipment for those who wanted to try something before investing in buying equipment for themselves.
He was Larger Than Life within WECA, and his shoes will be impossible to fill.
How this will work:
You will have the opportunity to buy from this website.
Click the "Add to Cart" and after you have selected all of the items you want to buy, scroll up to the top of the page and click on the Cart symbot. The payment page will appear. PLEASE put your cell phone number in the PHONE FIELD so I can call you to confirm and to arrange the time and place for equiptment pick up.
While WECA has 501(c)3 charitable status, your purchase is NOT TAX DEDUCTIBLE as you are receiving something of value.
If this sale works out we intend to consider making an online Store where you can list anything you want to sell and receive the proceeds.
I will contact your CELL PHONE NUMBER so we can arrange a time for you to pick up the items at Stan and Reva's home with me.
Everything is working as far as we know, with some items that list known problems that Stan listed for them. No One has tested any of the equipment, but Stan was on the Air every day on various VHF as well as HF Nets and was on the WECA-sponsored SDN Southern District 9:30 PM Net at the time that they had to call EMS to transport him to the Hospital.
Assume all sales are final. If something does not work, we can see if and how to accept a return with a refund (less any fees we had to pay to Stripe who is the credit card processor.)
