If you weren’t at tonight’s NCRC meeting, you missed a great one. We had 44 folks in attendance. Part of the draw, besides typical comradery, was the introduction of NCRC Show & Tell. Members setup four tables to demonstrate various hobby related things. An certainly Mike K1VI’s presentation on digital modes (especially FT8) was a major reason.
We will have our regular monthly meeting this coming Monday, 7:00 PM February 12, at KVH.
Before the meeting, starting at 6:45, we will have one or more show & tell tables setup for members to view. A table will focus on something of potential interest to members. It might be a chance to see a new radio, or it might be technical in nature. This will become a regular part of meetings going forward.
After the meeting, we are fortunately to have Mike Bragg, K1VI, travel to us from Pawtucket to give us a presentation on the new digital modes that have taken HF by storm; modes like FT-8 and JT-9 (see https://physics.princeton.edu/pulsar/k1jt/wsjtx.html ). This is the same presentation that he gave during the January “Consortium” meeting.
The weather looks to be good for Monday, so hopefully we will have a good turnout.
Our sponsor, KVH, will be open this Monday, so we will be holding our last formal meeting of the year on Monday November 13th at 7 PM at KVH.
We don’t have a formal presentation this meeting, but we do have a number of business items we will be covering, including votes for Officers, Bylaw Changes, and new members. We will also be reviewing the results for Field Day, and JOTA, plus updating folks on our educational activities.
Don’t forget our year end dinner party is coming up (6 PM Monday December 11th at the Mainstay Hotel & Conference Center) See details and make reservations here:
