MEETING ACTIVITY

 

Our President W1KSZ - Richard opened the meeting with a discussion about the Christmas party.  W7TUS - Mike  reiterated the details of the 19 December event and his comments are reflected earlier.  And, it was noted that there are Veterans at the VA hospital who are enthusiastic stamp collectors.  Richard had a stack of envelopes from foreign QSLs to present to Mike.  If you have any stamps from your QSL collection, please give them to Mike for the vets at the hospital.

A discussion concerning a possible donation to the 2016 Bouvet DX peditiion by ON4WW. After our Secretary/Treasurer W7LB - Larry reported that the club is solvent, it was decided to donate $50 to the project with a possibility of more when the details and more firm.  

During our DXploits round table discussion,  N7WS - Wes said he had worked KD7XH  - Cliff at the American Samoa DXpedition and worked SP5EAQ - Jacek on Tokelau Island in October.  Jacek spoke to SADXA at the September meeting about his two or three man DXpeditions.  Wes also bragged a bit about his new line of Elecraft . Nice!

And then Cliff said he worked 916 in two days during the Sweepstakes.  Busy, busy, busy!

WA7NB - Art said, along with other things, he had worked 1500 in the recent CW Sweepstakes, had real difficulty with jammers trying to work , a real DX pile-up mess, and needs one more for 340!

W7BBM - John said that he had demonstrated 1296 MHz to W7RJ - Ron at his QTH.  

WO7V - Jim managed to work Tromelin on RTTY and had chased many W1AWs.
In an unrelated to ham radio note, WD7F - John told of watching the Food Network on Monday (no TV night) with the crazy silver spiked hair host doing "Diners and Dives" up in Salt Lake City at the and who should appear?  There were K7RJ - Ron and N7BDZ - Elaine feeding their faces!  How about that?

W1KSZ - Richard said he worked Lord Howe and South Cook Islands and very soon he will have 101 countries on 160!  That is an accomplishment considering the top band these days.!
K7NX - Loyde said he's been busy actually operating and when he went to rotate his beam, it didn't seem to want to move.  He went outside and there on the ground were a few ball bearings.  I guess you could say "He lost his bearings!"
W7EXG - Bill said that "FINALLY", his DB-42 monster antenna is UP!   Part of the evening presentation was photos of the event.  Special thanks to to W7LB - Larry, W7TUS - Mike, N7WS - Wes, W7BBM - John, W1GHF - Rick , WO7V - Jim and K7RJ - Ron.  It was quite a job getting that huge antenna in the air.  Bill says it performs great and having three elements on 40 made it simple to work Italy on 40!

With that, the metting was adjourned and after a short break the evening's presentation began.

W1KSZ - Richard attended the 2014 Southwestern ARRL Convention this year and with a slide presentation, primarily of the swap event during the event.  There were lots of neat "Boat Anchors" and newer equipment s well.  



IT'S UP!  W7EXG's DB-42 is up.  We'll have N7WS - Wes's pictures posted soon!

Well?  Did you miss this one too?  Shame on you! 

 

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?
