Technical Mentoring and Elmering Net – November 19, 2015

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 net was Dave’s next to last TM&E net. Next Thursday will be Thanksgiving, so Dave asked who might attend the net and at least a few people will. So, next week will be Dave’s last net and even though it is a holiday, he will dedicate his evening one more time to help us figure out whatever problem we might have. But never fear, the net will continue on with new volunteers attempting to handle your questions and to lead the discussions. We plan on having a crew of net hosts who will rotate every week to make sure this net carries on.

This was yet another interesting net with 11 check-ins plus net control (Shackmaster Dave K6HWN) and 4 chat room visitors. Subjects tonight included:

  • Dave discussed a complex paradox with how you can hear some of a sideband signal on AM.
  • Dave’s radio/electronics repair experience, troubleshooting techniques/tricks, etc. Brian’s (K6BPM) questions about capacitance and circuit building.
  • Speculation about the “popping” noise on Dave’s and other signals on the K6TZ repeater tonight.
  • General digs at Shackmaster Dave and his imminent retirement. So sad, but what a terrific legacy he’s left us. We’ll miss you Dave. 

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.
