David, 

Sorry for the late reply, but I will be there for the meeting. But I can’t quite make it in time for the pizza fest

Pizza night confirmed attendees

David Andrews
 

The big October meeting is two weeks away.

 

This meeting will have a few firsts. First pizza night. First show and tell night. First look at N2APB’s latest creation. The weather will be cooler, so plan on coming out and having a good time. Remember, this is an audience participation event; come prepared to speak for a few minutes on something you’ve done, something you’ve built, some cool gadget you picked up along the way, or somewhere you’ve operated. We all learn and receive inspiration, and we become better operators and tinkerers from interactions with each other. So get ready now. Spend a few minutes to figure out what you’re bringing to the table in two weeks.

 

So far we have the following folks confirmed:

 

Brent Martin

Mike Wagner

Gary Stickel

David Schoenherr

Brad Berger

Jim Anderson

Randy Kruszka

Joyce Tarbell

Allan Tarbell

George Heron

David Weikert

Bob Foster

Marthanne Foster

Juan Lopez

Mike Foley

Karen Foley

Lou Devillon

Dean Webb

David Andrews

Jeanette Andrews

 

Speak up if you’re not on the list & you plan on attending. It’s going to be a great meeting.

 

David, N1ESK

On being a ham experimenter, a builder of radio kits and a QRPer (with a Guide to First Steps in CW)

George N2APB
 

Yeah, CW is no longer a requirement for getting one's ham radio license. 
And yeah, you can have fun on both HF and VHF using phone or digital modes. 

BUT ...  if this describes you, you are missing out on a HUGE part of being a ham!  Using CW (i.e., Morse code) enables you to get more into the field of experimentation, building simple, low-power transmitter and receiver kits, and using them on your home station or out in the field. Radios are simpler, smaller and more efficient in use,  There are "on-air group activities" like sprints, contests and fox hunts with others just like you with a 5-watt radio tapping DAH DIT DAH DIT - DAH DAH DIT DAH ("CQ") into the ether. 

I can't express how much fun this is! ... And it happens to have dominated my 50 years of being a ham.  Throughout this time I've been a low-power "QRP" operator, experimenter and builder of little $30 single-band 2-watt transceiver boards.  With nothing more than such a small 2-watt radio (that I built), my iPhone earbuds plugged into that board, and a 9V battery powering it from my pocket, I've thrown wires up into trees and used a small pushbutton in my hand as key to send Morse code to talk 'round the world.  **THERE IS NO THRILL GREATER THAN BUILDING A RADIO KIT AND MAKING A CONTACT WITH IT **  I'm shouting because this is so true.

Now, if you already have a bit of a handle on using CW, but may be a bit unsure about how to proceed on-air with your first contact ... here is a short short guide to how to have a CW QSO, which covers the use of Q-codes, abbreviations and a sample QSO format. It isn't intended to be exhaustively complete or correct, but provides some practical advice on getting that first QSO done so you're a real CW operator. Again, the THRILL of making your first contact ... and perhaps using a radio built by YOU!  ... http://www.qrp-labs.com/qcx/cwqso.html


For more information online, there are so many different references that I could point you: QRP clubs, groups that design and sell small inexpensive radio kits and informational links for any aspect of the CQ and QRP operation, and more.  Perhaps just as a starting point, I could point you to my own personal collection of Reference Links that opens each time I open my browser.  Again these are MY reference links ... but you too might find some of them to be helpful in being a "QRP and experimenting ham" ... http://midnightdesignsolutions.com/misc/links.html  

If ANYONE here in TLARC wants to learn a little more about what I'm describing here, by all means please contact me and we can have a call or shack visit here to show & tell all the points I'm talking about.

Re: A favor from the group . . .

Tom Badgett
 

Just a quick, heart-felt thanks for all the birthday wishes from this group. The response was awesome. Cards, QSL cards, and in every case personal comments and well-wishes. I couldn't have bought her anything that would have topped her pleasure at receiving and reading all these cards. (About 84 total . . . so the initial goal of 80 for an 80th birthday worked!)
Thanks for letting me use this group for such a personal endeavor.
