Special meeting notes
THERE WILL BE NO DECEMBER MEETING
Monday mornings will find many area hams (club members and otherwise) at the El Charro Mexican Food Restaurant in Burnet, TX (block South of the traffic light at the 7-11). We meet for breakfast and arrive around 7:30-8:00am. All are welcome and the conversations at the table are guaranteed to be interesting. Tall tales are allowed. Even the truth is accepted (grudgingly). The group recently migrated from the Highlander but that’s a tale of its own.
Program for November
Build a 2M J-Pole antenna from ladder line. That WAS the program and it was a huge success. Many of our hams made an antenna for their own use and one for club and emergency use. In case you missed it, here is the plan from which these were built.
Local digital net moving to FM
The digital net which meets just after the voice net on Sunday evenings now operates on 2M FM on 145.550. The reason is to have better and easier local area digital comms.
New Code Class in January
Details here. This is given again starting Jan 5, 2014 by Bill Sepulveda (K5LN) in Round Rock. Gil (KA5GIL) is in the process of taking it and has found it worthwhile. Bill will come teach this in Burnet County if there is enough interest.
