    The NeedleBender's History. The World Wide Needle Benders Club was officially founded by "The Coax Kidd", out of California, back in 1973. The Coax Kidd started a club that consisted of only the Elite Operators and Big Strappers, that he chose, in competition with other clubs in existence at that time. Some of the clubs were: "The Bull Shippers" "The Trucker Tucker Club" " The Violators" The original members were the President and Founder, The Coax Kidd; Brahma Bull; "The Midnight Gambler"; and Bill Tucker, who later became the President after The Coax Kidd passed away. Prior to Bill Tucker passing away, he appointed NeedleBender 409,aka The Red Fox, as the Clubs President. NeedleBender 409 held this title until early 2005, when he appointed NeedleBender 777 as the Clubs President. In 2010, Neddle Bender 777 appointed Needle Bender 696 Dave as the President and Rick stepped back as the Vice President and those two still hold those titles today. As more history is presented to us, we will update this page.....we are aware that this is an outline at best, but many original members are no longer living, and the Clubs history is being put together as fast as possible; as stated, record keeping was not an issue then, but now that we have the means, we want to preserve it as best we can! I am sure that we will be told of legends, present and past, .... Bring them on!!!! To answer one if the biggest questions that arise. How to become a Needle Bender??? The answer is simple really. It is strictly by invitation. Dave and Rick are listening. They choose from who they hear. They choose operators who sound loud, proud, are kind, courteous to their fellow operators above all. This is what they listen for. Only few are chosen as you can see by the roster. So, get out there and show it.

    Hi. Names Brian and I’m from the SE corner of BC Canada about 50mi north of the border. Now propagation conditions are coming around I want to get on board. I played with CB in the late 80s and have been a Short wave listener for years.I love all things radio. Im studying for my ham license and hope to write as soon as all this virus stuff has passed. I just put up a new antenna and hope to see if I can get some contacts stateside. The last skip cycle on Apr.16 was really fun to listen to and eager to earn membership here. I will try barefoot first and step up to a small amp if I have to. Please if your a Wash, Idaho or Montana guy and would like to try to set up a list of members to try for it would be appreciated. Waiting for the next propagation cycle😄

    Hey all. Here's a few shots of my homemade vertical dipole. Materials: 12' 1-1/2" PVC sch.40 10' 1-1/2" PVC sch.40 8' 1-1/2" PVC sch.40 8' 3/4" PVC sch.40 1-1/2" PVC tee 1-1/2" - 3/4" reducer x2 3/4" PVC cap x2 103" 12ga. Solid copper wire x2 3' 2" ABS Coax from Cobra HG A1500 mag mount or use a PO239 connector I think is what it's called. Whatever u need to mount to structure and guy wires. I used light paracord and adjusted as needed over a couple days and plumbers strap to mount to my house passed through 3' section of 2" ABS (Pics didn't upload in order but I'm sure anyone can figure it out 🙂) I found that using the copper wire I had no need for the wire protruding out of the top. Since it's stiff it stands on its own in the PVC so I will lengthen the pipe eventually and make it the full length to cap the wire for a better weather-proof seal

    Greetings World Radio Friends from the North It has been some time since I popped on to the TWRC Boards and on 11 meters in general. Life has been busy but going to take some time this summer and get back on the air, just moved to a new qth and still have to get the radio gear out and tower up but that is in the plan soon. Since getting in to Amateur Radio I have been busy with the local club with planing the hamfest and working on the club site. But will still play on 11 meters and will proudly use the WR Call. This is what has me busy and Looking forward to getting back on the air 73 for now Waving a Hand 9WR705 Pat Parry Sound Ontario
