This is being shared for Chris KT9N. Just a reminder that he is coordinating these lunch get togethers and they are set as reoccurring events using the original link.
Monday Zoom Luncheon Meeting from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM on April 13, 2020
We had eight people check into the Monday Zoom Luncheon meeting:
KD4BK Barry Bennecoff
KD4HAX Joe Klein
KE4S Dave Putman
KG4UPR Bryan Stephens
KJ4VTH Bill Robbins
KT9N Chris Fristad
N4PDY Mike White
N0JSD John Dykstra
During the meeting we discussed a variety of topics from what kind of equipment we had in our shacks to logging packages and Dave, KE4S, did a screen share so that we could see the various modules of the DXLab Suite. A number of individuals, including Dave, use N1MM+ for logging but it was recognized that
it was a “contesting” package. For everyday logging I think everyone was impressed with the DX Keeper module of the DXLab Suite. During the meeting there were a number of Tornado warnings for our area and most seemed to be keeping an eye on what was happening with the weather radar.
A number of the attendees stated they were looking forward to next week.
There has been a lot of concern regarding the use of virtual meeting sites and their vulnerability. I am discussing the best course of action with the club’s IT Committee and look forward to their recommendations. I realize that everyone has their personal opinion on the best application. We will do our best to find a platform that meets security concerns and ALSO provides a simple and friendly means for ALL members who wish participate.
Please be patient this week and continue to check your e-mail for updated meeting information as we continue to evaluate the best means for the club.
Chris KT9N had the wonderful idea of coordinating a virtual lunch get together on Mondays from 1130 to 1300. Due to the current inability to meet in person this will be an excellent opportunity meet and converse with friends. Participants are encouraged to bring along a question or topic to discuss but this is not mandatory and also feel free to just come by and say hi.
Please check your e-mail for the details and password set up by Chris and forwarded by me.
Just for clarification the meeting will be held on our normally scheduled meeting date at our normal meeting time. I will try to open the virtual meeting approximately 15 minutes early (0815) so that folks can get settled in and comfortable with Zoom if they choose. Date : April 18th, 2020Time : 0830 Have a good night, Doug, K4AIU
