The meeting(s) were a blast!
Some 18 members in attendance were an interesting mix of *technology* students - EE, Chem, PhDs, professors and a sports medicine guy. They have a very radio active club on the air with two well-appointed and capable stations, tower and STEPP-IR beam and a repeater. Man, I wish I were back in school there!
They were all very familiar with FT8, so the free-flowing presentation focused a lot on the technical aspects ... lots of time and discussion on the schematics, kitbuilding and the flexibility of the Phaser's clock generator and its use on all linear digital modes. Fun talk and I used our TLARC Kit Building Workshops as an example through the night of what they might also consider.

PS: A funnyism from the UTARC meeting last night ... Almost without exception, the introduction dialog I had with each student went like this:
Me: "Hi, I'm George N2APB."
