For the price and free shipping this was the best choice when there was no other sound available except from the monitor.

retro review Wow, back from the past. When did ACS48 come out? Back in 1997? Well its now 2010. INCREDIBLE SOUND IN A TINY PACKAGE THE ACS33 SPEAKER SYSTEM CAME WITH THE PC I BOUGHT WAY BACK IN 2001. THE PC WAS AN OFF-BRAND AT THE TIME.

I was going to buy more sets of these speakers, any volume discount? good sound for price, excellent in a small home setting.

Summary of the Tech Session in Sunnyvale Saturday August 9th.
Right after the flea market on August 9th, we had our meeting in Sunnyvale at yours trulys house. This was convenient since people needed to eat after walking for hours at the swap meet. There was plenty of food available as can be seen from the photos. Bringing a dessert was optional and I thank the people who contributed. There were great cookies, pies, and ice cream. Seems that everyone was so full that there was a gallon of ice cream left in my refrigerator when everyone left. Well, my kids loved it. The Club picked up the tab for the food. We had Chicago Stuff Pizza, true Italian vegetarian lasagna, true Italian meat lasagna, and mixed salad with fresh tomatoes from my garden. There were also plenty of drinks and desserts to go around. We had a good showing of members. About 25 that I counted. We managed to get about 15 of them to pose for a picture shown below.

The whole purpose of the meeting was to test a bunch of 802.11 Wifi systems and antennas. Although it was not a scientific test, the results were very convincing. With just a WiFi PCMCIA card (Airlink 4030), we could get about 3 signals (not including my own). With a gain antenna, such as the Airlink AWLL3055, we managed to log around 2x the number of stations. When we switched up to a 15 element yagi, we logged about 12 signals. With a 1 meter dish we got around 16 stations (but that was only in one direction). Lloyd KD6FJI pointed the 1 meter dish in several directions and we literally logged over 40 signals; and that was just standing outside the sidewalk as shown in the photo. Imagine what one could do on the rooftop. Anyway, we had lots of fun getting into neighbors networks.

Annual Picnic - Saturday, September 13
Place: National Semiconductor, corner of Lawrence Expressway and Kifer in Sunnyvale For you GPS lovers, the exact address is: 2900 Semiconductor Dr. Sunnyvale, 95052 Time: September 13th 12:00AM-3:00PM Right after the DeAnza Swapmeet Costs: Bring a Dessert to share, FREE burgers, hotdogs, lasagna, salad, drinks and FREE parking. Raffle Tickets: $5 each This years annual picnic will be again held at National Semiconductor Park in Sunnyvale due to popular demand right after the DeAnza Swapmeet. Bring your flea market goodies and share it with the rest of us. Who knows, maybe that piece of junk you picked up at the swap meet doesnt work and someone at the picnic can help you repair it. You never know. Cant beat this park since there are no park fees, no charge for parking, and best of all, it is close to HROs, Halted Specialities and Costco. Bring your friends, family and guests. Kids are welcome. The more the merrier. Its all free except for the raffle tickets. The club will provide for hamburgers, hot dogs, lasagna, drink, and salad. Bring a dessert to share (optional). After the picnic we can all go to HROs and see what is new or go bargain hunting at Halted Specialities. The Grand Prize this year will be a Yaesu FT817. YES, YOU HEARD THAT RIGHT. The board has approved this since our treasury is healthy. If you dont win the grand prize, how about an Altec Lansing ACS33 speaker system complete with sub woofer for your PC or iPOD? This was the speaker system that gave Altec Lansing their name in the PC world. Aside from the annual banquet, the picnic is our biggest event. So mark your calendars.

The Yaesu FT817ND is the worlds first self-contained, battery-powered, multi-mode portable transceiver covering the HF, VHF, and UHF bands! It covers 160-6 meter, 2 meter, and 70cm in SSB, CW, and FM. It will cover broadcast AM, broadcast FM and commercial SW. It has 200 memories. What more can you ask for? I would love to own one of these myself. It has a built-in keyer and DSP filters. Bob Lai KM6QP says the radio even goes on Red Cross frequencies. This may be the last radio you buy. If you are worried about the low output power, Tokyo Hi Power Labs just announced a 40 watt amplifier for the radio. Here are some of the features if you are not familiar with the radio.
TX Frequency Coverage: 160 - 10 Meters, 50 MHz, 144 MHz, 430-450 MHz, plus Alaska Emergency Channel (5167.5 kHz). RX Frequency Coverage: 100 kHz - 56 MHz; 76 - 154 MHz; 420 - 470 MHz. (Exact frequency range may be slightly different) Power Output: 5 Watts SSB/CW/FM with 13.8V External DC; Operating Modes: USB, LSB, CW, AM, FM, W-FM, Digital (AFSK), Packet (1200/9600 FM). Digital Modes: RTTY, PSK31-U, PSK31-L. Weight: 2.6 lb (with Alkalines and Antenna, w/o Mic.) Built-in Noise Blanker. Dual VFOs, Split Capability, IF Shift, and R.I.T. ("Clarifier"). AM Aircraft Reception. Built-in CW Electronic Keyer and Semi-Break-In (down to 10 ms delay) Capability. Adjustable CW Pitch; CW Paddle Normal/Reverse Connection Selection. Built-in VOX Built-in CTCSS and DCS. ARTS (Auto-Range Transponder System). Spectrum Scope. 200 Regular Memories, plus Home Channels and Band-Limit (PMS) Memories.

So dont spend all your money at the DeAnza swapmeet. Make sure you have enough to buy tickets for this extraordinary prize. The second prize wont disappoint you either. This is the famous Altec Lansing ACS 33 speaker system. Theres going to be about a dozen prizes and I promise (due to inputs from members), the prizes are going to be great; including the new Mag 2 D size 3 watt LED focusing flashlight, the famous GP4 shortwave radio, and 400 watt UPS power supply, to name a few.

GP-4L All Purpose Radio. This is the worlds
smallest AM/FM/SW radio and runs flawlessly on two AA batteries. It is one of the few radios I know that can receive SW and WWV off its built-in whip antenna. It has a built-in LED flashlight and the LCD display also serves a clock for the clock radio. When I go on vacation or travel for work, I never leave home without it. The GP-4 checks in at 3.5"H x 2.5" x.75" D. With 2 AA cells installed, it weighs less than 5 ounces. Everyone should have one of these in their emergency kit.

CLOCK: 12 Hour Format with Wake Up to Radio Alarm RUN TIME: Radio: 150 hrs at 40% Volume is that enough time or what? LED Flashlight: run time approx. 70 hours thats 3 days continous FREQUENCY RANGE: FM 76-109 MHz MW 520-1740Khz SW 5.20-18.30 MHz SENSITIVITY FM < 10 microV MW-AM < 1 microV/Meter SW-AM < 30 micro V POWER REQUIREMENTS 3-4.5 Volts DC via side jack (no adapter included) 2 each "AA" batteries DIMENSIONS: 3.4" X 2.55" X.83" SPEAKER: 40 mm in diameter, 4 Ohms,.25 watt EARPHONE JACK: 3.5 MM, Earphones Included

Altec Lansing ACS33

Here is a picture of the Altec Lansing ACS33 satellite speaker with subwoofer. The Altec Lansing Website describes these speakers as follows: The ACS33 Power- Cube speaker system is a three-piece multimedia audio solution for your home or office personal computer. Providing 25 watts of total power, the system includes two 5-watt satellite speakers for mid to high range frequency response, while the 15-watt powered subwoofer delivers extended low-range bass. A patented

page 6 of 10

control circuit automatically boosts bass at low volume to maintain musical sound realism. The unified volume control simultaneously adjusts the volume of the satellites as well as the subwoofer. The satellite speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent monitor distortion. The system is especially designed for multimedia computer near field monitoring. The satellite speakers are magnetically shielded to prevent color distortion on video displays.
APC Watt UPS. This is a 400
watt UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply). With emergency capacity like this, your computer should hold up for about 2 hours after power outage. This is plenty of time to backup whatever you are working on and safely turn off your computer. No one should be without a UPS. You never know when power will be lost and your valuable data is corrupted. This is a commercial grade unit and was donated by National Semiconductor.
Directions to the picnic site: On 101 take Lawrence Expressway West. Go about 0.5 miles and there will be an underpass, go past Arques Ave (this is the turnoff for HROs). The next intersection is Kifer, make a right at Kifer. Go about 2 blocks and National Semiconductor is on your right. Go past the main building and eventually you will see a big park on your right. Turn in and that is where the picnic will be. Monitor the Southbay repeater N6MNV 442.70+ 100Hz pl if you get lost.
