Heads up! The 40 thieves have come a long way. Those of you who have stepped into our lair have seen what a few caring members can achieve with almost no resources. Those who have helped us get to where we are... we thank you and you know who you are.
Unfortunately, the next stage of development calls for something more than just well wishes and eyeballs. SO..... we are appealing to the general ham crowd ( even if you are not..... we welcome your contribution... and then we will get you your ham license. No, you still need to take your exam.)
We are looking high and low for derelict PCs. Specifically P3 and better. If you have a disused piece somewhere, let us in on it. We intend to use it here to augment our WiFi experience ( its free for all users, by the way) to host our very own interactive blog / forum where all users can post their oen thread (topic).
So... rather than let it become obsolete, allow us to give it a new lease on life. If you don't have stuff to donate but know of someone with more stuff than they can use - tell us. All informers will be treated confidentially. Those tech-heads out there... this is your chance to do something for the ham community and then get a brand spanking new gleaming upgrade.
While you are at it.... we can use cables, mouses, keyboards, hard drives, cd writers, monitors, speakers, boom boxes, cabinets, barbeque grills, extension cords, keyboards etc. (You get the idea) Anything you think we can use here.
Anyone wishing to dispose of old radios/antennas etc, also drop us a line. If necessary, we will take up a collection to ease the pain of giving or loaning your rig to us. We are also looking to stock the facility with board games, cards, radio catalogs, etc.
So.... start raiding your long term storage for items which you think will see better mileage with the Ali Baba gang. 73s and give til it hurts. Needless to say. The stuff should be operational.
The 40 Thieves.
