Agenda Show and Tell

We’ve been way too humble. Now’s your chance to show off! Anything related to ham radio goes — radios, antennas, software, go-kits, tools, awards, contesting, DX, SDR, CW, space weather, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, radio kits, etc. Bring your gear, pictures, or short video clips. This is super informal.

Ham Help

If you don’t know everything about amateur radio yet, that’s OK. As a club, we have a broad spectrum of interests and experiences. Please feel free to ask questions at this part of the meeting. With 20 hams, there’s bound to be 40 different answers!

Board of Directors

Since our March meeting, the annual board of directors election was held and roles for the board members were set.

Access

146.58 MHz FM simplex will be monitored for anyone who needs help finding the site or for access to the building. (Monitoring is done with handhelds, so range is limited.) If you’re running late and are locked out, please call us on the radio. We’ll send someone to let you in.
