WA7DHQ - Bob

W1SR - Steve

N7FG - Frank

Here are the newest members of SADXA!  Welcome to the club, we're happy to have you as members!

The first order of business was the election of Club officers resulting in the first meeing of 2016 being opened by our newly elected President W1KSZ - Richard.  Richard asked if there was any old business or new and with that, we began the DXploits round table discussion. Our new VP, W9FI - Jim said that he had his new dipole up and had worked the South Sandwich Islands and the in 11 band modes and had four (4) new countries on 80 Mtrs.
K0JJL - Jim had worked K5P.  The Henning Brothers, KB7JAQ - Scott and KE7EZJ - Andrew had worked a bit of DX on 10 meters.  
W7EXG - Jim says his Drake L-7 has been restored and works great.
One of our newest members, N7FG - Frank has been a ham for 52 years and he had also worked K5P.
Not too much DX was reported by our DX champion K6WSC - Bill , however he worked the NAQP CW and had 507 QSOs before the static electricity protector in his dipole shorted.
Secretary/Treasurer W7LB - Larry said that we are solvent. KD7UIZ - Don told of working with the giant discone antenna at the Titan Missile Museum south of Tucson.  80 ft. high and 50 ft. in diameter.  Don said it works great! is having a radio party on 30 January.  If you're interested, contact Don or an RST member.  WA7DHQ - Bob said that he had to work really hard and exercise patience in order to snag the K5P with his vertical and 100W, however, he managed to do it!
W6XI - Jerry worked K5P on 160/80/40/30/17 and 12, VP8 on 40 & 17.  Worked Europe on 160, Uruguay, a prize for sure,  and now has 187 on 160.  He suffered a bad barrel connector on his 80 meter antenna and recommends NOT using barrel connectors because they WILL fail.
KF7OOO - Jerry and KW7CD - Cornell related how they had worked portable from the Salt River Canyon and that Cornell was learning C++.  Good luck with that, Cornell.  
KB7AZ- Carl worked 2 new countries and K5P on 15 and 30 meter RTTY plus on 20 CW and phone. W1KSZ - Richard said he had worked K5P on 160/80/40 and 30, but not on 10.  He worked the South Sandwich on 30 mtr RTTY and had been working on restoring a Collins station.
N7WS - Wes worked the K5P on 15 RTTY plus 17 band slots.  Wes said that he  and W6XI attended the 
awards banquet where KK6EK - Bob Schmieder was the featured speaker.

Finally, Wes says there are 409 stations to be worked on the ARRL and that he has now worked 72 of them.  Gee Wes, when do you sleep?

With that, the meeting was adjourned.  See you next month.

 

It was a good meeting to kick off the new year!  If you missed the meeting, you missed a good one!  Don't miss it next month!

What the?!?  Is Don slapping Wally on the head?

 

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?
