We are still ZOOMing for club meetings. It seems likely we’ll still be meeting this way for the foreseeable future. On the one hand ZOOM meetings don’t allow the personal interaction we enjoy at “real” meetings, but on the other hand, a lot of members who cannot attend regular meetings ARE able to participate in the ZOOM meetings. When we return to having in-person meetings again, I think we will also integrate ZOOM into the picture so more members can join in on the fun.
This month we have some club business to talk about. There are some changes, new projects, and we have an election coming up in November. We’ll talk about the latest club news, and I’ll explain how we are going to conduct the election.
I am also going to do a presentation on using the HF digital mode, FT8. This an extremely popular mode and is packed with users all day and night. It is very similar to JT65 but much faster. You can really rack up contacts quickly.
Please check back on this website around 7pm on meeting night. As we have done in the past, we’ll post the ZOOM and YouTube links.
See you then and 73!
