Next Meeting Thur, Oct 22

Join us for our monthly meeting Thursday October 22th at 7:00 PM. 
Via Zoom.

We had a small Fox Hunt at the El Dorado Hills Community Park on October 11 with 12 attendees.   I hid the small 15mw transmitter in some brush along a creek bank in the middle of the park.   Most everyone found the fox within an hour.  Everyone got to test thier eqipment and check out eveyone elses equipment.   Stay tuned for the date and time of the next fox hunt.

Wednesday Activity Night we met on 28.415MHz USB and had a group of 11 check into the group.  Most signals were very good.  We even had a check-in from WA, N1JJB Joshua. Eight participants were able to copy Joshua.  Very good night for 10m and a lot of fun. Roger was copying us on three different remote SDR receivers.
