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.
Our next meeting will be a week from this Thursday. Meeting date is May 28th.
This will be another Zoom meeting. A link for the meeting will be sent out in about a week.
This month, we're going to do shack tours and we need your pictures!
Send me your ham shack and antenna pictures and I'll assemble everything in a Powerpoint file for the meeting. We will then let you describe your station to us in detail as I pull up the pictures. Oh, and it never hurts to have a significant other, your cat, your dog, your gold fish, your garden, or whatever in the background. Let's make this a fun Zoom meeting.
I want all pictures. If all you have is a handy-talky, we want to see a picture of it! If you have multiple towers and antennas and rigs, we want to see them! If your broccoli is doing fine, well shoot a picture of it!
Send everything to me:
We had 12 participants join us on Wednesday evening to try and hear the fox. We had the Fox Hunt transmitter running at 12mw up at the In and Out Burger in Placerville. Only four of the participants could hear the fox from their home QTH. When we switched to the lower gain antenna only two could hear it. This test let me know what kind of start location we should use for an actual fox hunt TBD. Thanks for participating in Activity Night.
