Good turnout to the July Meeting despite the 100+ degree temperatures. Alex, KK6VIX reported that he passed the General Test. Dave, K6TQ gave a report that Field Day was a success and we doubled our score from last year. The program was given by Dave, W6TE. He presented his homemade powered tower raising and lowering winch built around a boat davit.
Next Months meeting will be “Hot August Go-box night”!
Once again the club participated in another successful ARRL Field Day Event. We worked as an 8A station in the Sacramento Valley (SV). The weather was great and band conditoins were not too bad. Thanks to all who came up to help and participate. Here are a few pictures that were taken at the even. I'll post our scores when I get them.
Good turn out for our May club meeting.
Ken, W6KWV was recognized for his service as VEC and awarded a lifetime membership in the club.
Stefan, AF6SA and Alex KK6VIX showed off their remote rotor project.
Colton, WD6CWM talked about his other hobby, dog tracking and handling.
The ARES Group held its Monday net on April 30th at the QTH of KE6GLA. At the meeting we had examples of four go-boxes built by the ARES members. We plan on bringing the boxes to a future club meeting for show and tell. Start working on yours. The boxes below are from KD6KNA, KE6GLA, KK6EGM, and W6CK.
