The audio archive can best followed by downloading the .mp3 file for the appropriate date here and listening with the media player of your choice. You can move the progress slider forward or backward to the subject of interest to you.

Tonight’s Technical Mentoring and Elmering (TM&E) net yielded 13 check-ins plus net control (Shackmaster Dave, K6HWN) and 9 chat room visitors. Topics discussed included:

  • A follow-up on steerable antenna arrays.
  • Direction finding using a 4 antenna (vertical) array.
  • The proper procedure to re-purpose a repeater and user conduct to be expected when an emergency arises.
  •  Proper preparation and contents of a good functional go bag and good practices to follow before actually leaving your domicile and becoming part of the problem.
  • Affects of toroids on baluns especially related to heat.

Tune in to the SBARC TM&E Net next Thursday at 8:00 PM (2000 Hrs) and see what interesting questions will arise or ask some of your own! All club members and visitors are encouraged to check in to the TM&E net each week and join in with questions and /or answers to and contribute the knowledge of new and seasoned amateur radio operators alike.
