To fellow Hams: inexpensive 10m rigs

From: Rod 
------------------------------------------------------
Until I can fab that circuit board and make my USB linux driven SDR, I'll  
need an inexpensive 10m rig.
Unfortunately the same Software Define Radio revolution has killed off the  
the single band HF and 6m rigs in the Ham market.
If you want 10 meters, or 6M with AM and SSB, you need to by an expensive  
multi band HF rig.
While I am interested in the rest of HF, I don't see the need to buy a  
radio with capabilities I can't use at the moment.

That has led me to the murky world of import CB's. While it is definitely  
illegal to use these as CB's in the US, it is legal to use them on 10 and  
12 meters if you have privileges to do so.

Contracting at Bloomberg

From: Dee Holtsclaw 
------------------------------------------------------
One of my coworkers said yesterday that all of the recent candidates for
senior-level contracting positions were, shall we say, extremely
disappointing. There are still 3 or 4 contractor slots unfilled so if
anyone is interested in spending a year or two in NYC ...

These departments need strong C++ skills and familiarity with AIX,
Slowaris and/or Linux (most of the code runs on the first 2). It's
upgrading and maintaining transactional applications -- stuff like
making stock trades, analyzing advertisements, IOIs and stuff like that.

Hi chugalug community, 

Here's some interesting news to think about. 


http://tinyurl.com/l6xp5bg 


Chatt's library has such strong leadership that it's conceivable that the Chatt library could 
rise to be number one in the world -- especially with the way it has formed partnerships with 
groups around town. 


I don't know all the indicia they use to measure "best library in the world," but I do know the Chatt library is firing on all cylinders these days. 


If you're interested in ideas for moving the Chatt library in that direction, kindly contact me 
off-list -- and we can continue a small group conversation off list and involve Chatt library staff 
as their time permits. 


Yes, it's admittedly a "squishy" concept to be rated number one library in the world. 
But it truly is an attainable goal for Chatt -- and would spotlight the city in a great way if 
that were to happen.

Open Data Specialist position at the Chattanooga Public Library

From: Nate Hill 
------------------------------------------------------
Don't hesitate to ask me any questions.
#################################
http://chattlibrary.org/jobs/open-data-specialist-ods

Open Data Specialist (ODS)

The Chattanooga Public Library (CPL) is seeking a qualified candidate for a
newly created Open Data Specialist (ODS) position.  The successful
applicant will join our fantastic digital projects team on The 4th Floor, a
14,000 sq ft public maker/hackerspace in Chattanooga=92s city center.  This
is a unique library job that combines the diverse talents of a seasoned
collection development specialist, a web developer, a data scientist, and a
community outreach specialist. The ODS position is a year-long grant funded
position awarded to the CPL as one partner in the Open Chattanooga
collaborative. With demonstrated success, we intend to extend the position
beyond the duration of the grant indefinitely.

The ideal candidate for the ODS position is an open data evangelist and an
expert who can work with representatives from city government as well as
citizen groups like Open Chattanooga to coordinate contributions of data to
a public platform or portal. This portal will be hosted by the library and
accessed alongside our other digital collections. The portal=92s exceptiona=
l
construction, performance, and maintenance are all the responsibility of
the ODS.  The ODS will coordinate with partners to ensure that all data
added to the portal is useful, useable, and accessible like all of our
other public library collections. While this position does not require the
candidate to be a degreed librarian, it is important that the candidate
demonstrates an understanding of professional collection development
principles, since this government-produced data will be treated as a
library collection.

The first and most important task the ODS faces is the buildout of the
platform itself, as well as the creation of a sustainability plan and
documentation of the open data portal as a library collection.  Currently,
the library has a beta version of a data portal available at
opendata.chattlibrary.org; this was created using DKAN.  The ODS will
either continue work using this platform, or will present a case for the
adoption of another open source platform, such as CKAN.

Chattanooga Public Library considers this data portal a key piece of our
digital infrastructure as we develop more online library services and
migrate some of our traditional library services into a networked
environment.  The ideal candidate will bring innovative and creative
thought and workflows to our already robust digital services team.
 Eventually, the CPL anticipates serving more than just open government
data from this platform.  A candidate with a passion for developing cutting
edge services, skills to build and deliver applications and products, and a
desire to have fun working collaboratively with the rest of us will find
CPL to be a satisfying work environment.

Other qualifications, requirements, and preferences:

   - Undergraduate degree or equivalent experience in CS or related field
   - Demonstrated understanding of data structures and APIs
   - Familiarity with the Drupal CMS and DKAN or with CKAN
   - Familiarity with the LAMP stack; demonstrated PHP development
   experience
   - A strong history of contributions and commitments to open source
   projects
   - Please provide a link to your github account or another online
   portfolio
   - Bonus points for the applicant with UI / UX / design experience

This is a full-time position with benefits.  Sorry, this is not a remote
work opportunity, you will have to work in the library.

The salary for this job is $55,000/year.

Off Topic: Anyone TIG/MIG welding Aluminum

From: Mike Harrison 
------------------------------------------------------

I'm going to need some high grade aluminum framework for a project
nicely welded.. Kinda big pieces and they need to look nice, or at least, 
look nice after some grinding and polishing. I can stick weld aluminum and 
when I am lucky, it sticks.. but it ain't very pretty.

Willing to pay for good strong attractive welds, am making a custom 
carrier frame for the back of my RV.. I'd like it to look nice.

The machine shops I used to use for such projects are all out of business.
