Last Meeting

16 April 2015


K7RJA - Ron

We had a guest at the meeting.  Welcome Ron - K7RJA.  We hope you enjoyed the meeting and that you'll be back.

W1KSZ - Richard opened the meeting with our usual DXploit round table with N7WS - Wes starting us off with saying his new beam will be on the air soon and he had worked the Chatham Island DXpedition.  KD6XH - Cliff  said he's going to and hadn't been there since 1985 or so.

Our Big-Gun DXer K7NN - Don makes it look so easy with his dxing, working in the last month, 89 countries!  He said he received his EP6T Kish Island DXpedition card as well.
Our President - W1KSZ said he really enjoyed the
hamfest last month and the swap meet had some good stuff causing him to part with several dollars!
Mike - W7US has been busy rebuilding his AC/DC power distribution in his shack.
W7EXG - Bill has been having more fun with his DB-42 and has racked up several islands and others such as Camin, Cook, Turk, Creet plus Morocco, Turkey, India and 22 other countries.  Good job, Bill. 
Our treasurer, W7LB - Larry reported that the treasury and cash fund is good and we're holding the Herd Island donation check for the moment. There are 34 memebers at this time. There are several who haven't paid the dues for the year, so pony up folks!
KB7AZ - Carl has worked Chatham as well as 100 counties on RTTY.  He said that he now has antennas for all HF bands and he had finally made a contact on 30 Meters and has used 'em all.
Don't foget it's Mimi's next month and finally, N7WS - Wes  says checkout
With that, the meeting was adjourned for the evening presentation.

 

SADXA Presentation

 

Carl gave a very interesting presentation showing ways to build and use antennas that blend into the background to comply with deed restrictions.  He showed us several different methods of hiding antennas and even a few ways to load up the bedsprings, so to speak. For example, some folks had loaded sections of wrought-iron fence or gutter pipes and other inovative methods of gettting something on the air where restrictions prevail.  After all, there are other ways to hide an antenna other than the proverbial you know what.

Note from the SADXA Enforcer: Once again, if you missed Carl's presentation and the camaraderie of a typical SADXA meeting, then you lost out.  Get it together and be there next time!  Check out the pictures!  See what you missed?

 

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?
