We had a presenter lined up for this month but we had to reschedule until next month because of a conflict with other plans. So, we needed to come up with something else this month. Last year I tried to do a presentation over zoom about using a software defined radio (SDR) to operate the popular digital mode FT8. Unfortunately it was a failure because I needed to run Windows on a Mac to run the SDR software. Running 2 operating systems, the SDR software and Zoom was too much for my laptop so I was unable to get things working. This year, things have changed. The software I use is now available in a native Mac version so I’m going to try again. Levi K6LCM helped me do a test last night and everything worked great. So we’re on!
We are going to be using Zoom again this month but it looks like we may be able to return to the old location for future meetings. That’s good news. we have a few things we need to do, but hopefully we’ll be able to get back to regular in-person meetings next month.
