Notes from the President

We had another great meeting, in June, with the SADXA gathering at Mimis Cafe. A nice group showed up to see what everyone was working on the bands and hear the two speakers that were present. There was not much DX reported worked by  the members however. Don, K7NN, presented a very nice show on working the 60 meter band and all the fine points of that band both propagation and how to use the channels depending on what mode of modulation one is using. Don has been a pioneer on that band and now has over 80 countries worked on 60 meters, a really great accomplishment. Ron, W6ZQ, was also at the meeting and presented his observations and experiences having attended the Dayton Hamvention this year. Although it rained every day of the convention it sounded as if it was a great success with the largest crowd ever. Ron also, being a card checker, checked a few QSL cards.  

I am looking forward to next months meeting and seeing everyone again.

EDITOR'S NOTE:   Special thanks to N7WS - Wes for taking the pictures of this month's meeting.  Very nice, except, where's YOUR picture, Wes?

Since the editor was out of town, there is on running commentary for the metting, however, K6WSC - Bill provided his DXploits for the month as follows:

K6WSC - Bill , worked a handful of DX in the CQ-WPX-CW contest. In the ARRL VHF June contest, Bill had 76 QSOs in 48 different grids on 6 meters. He was most excited about working C6ATA and three VEs.  

SADXA Presentation

 

"Secrets of the 60 Meter Band"

 

No doubt about it!  I missed this one.  I promise I'll make the next one!  You'd better be there too! 

 

 

NOTES

I have added a few additional links below as recommended.  I've received several new pictures of current members, but I'm still short a few as well as the bios.  I suppose it's not absolutely necessary that the page have your bio, privacy issues, you know.  However, after all, this IS an amateur radio organization and Hams like to talk and brag too. Hi, Hi.   I will be bringing my trusty camera to take pictures and I welcome any picture that you might prefer to replace the ones that I post.  Just e-mail a suitable picture to wd7f@wd7f.com

Thanks.  de WD7F - John

PS:  Any other amateur radio links you would like here just for fun?
