LARG Regular meeting June 15, 2019

Member attending the regular meeting in June.

Today was a good review of DSP technology given by our very own Jeff Crawford, K0ZR. Always so much to learn!

Breakfast at IHOP was good fun even though it happens at 7am. I’ll need a nap today.

LARG Tuesday CW Net Report 6/11/2019

Called the weekly slow cw net at 8:00PM with only two check ins – K3WD (Bill) and me. We had a nice 30 minute qso discussing family visits and vacations.  Also, along with all the other ham activities this coming weekend, don’t forget that this weekend is the Summer Stew Perry 160 meter cw contest.  I hope to get a few more South America contacts after the club meeting and the ham fest.  73 de Dave KE4S

Thursday SSB Net Report 5/2/2019

Opened the net at 8:00PM as usual.  Only Bill K8SYH and Dave KE4S made it tonight.  Conditions were very poor so we chatted briefly and closed down.  Hope to see a better turn out next week.  No 10 meter session tonight.
