Our October club meeting will be on Tuesday the 29th, starting at 6pm, at the New Albany library. The social hour will be from 6 - 7pm. As always, a carry-in dinner is allowed. Kitchen facilities are available. A short business meeting will begin promptly at 7pm.
From the President, Bob Kenyon, K8LJ: A short business meeting will begin promptly at 7pm. One of the items to be briefly discussed is our transition from the current CRES email exploder to to a new system. We have been having increasing trouble recently with email not getting delivered properly. Some are getting blacklisted and not being forwarded. W3CRZ (thanks Bob!) is leading the effort to transition to a new system, but it's not ready for use yet. Some of you may get more than one copy of this announcement since I'm including a BCC list of the addresses that were rejected in the past or potentially might be. Interestingly, att.net addresses seem to be the most rejected. If you get more than one copy, I apologize for that but would rather that happen than you not receive it at all. Thanks for your understanding and patience.
The Program Committee has arranged for what promises to be a very informative presentation. Club member Weldon Mathews, K8NQ, will give a summary of what he learned about Software Defined Radios (SDRs) over the past two years, with emphasis on the new FlexRadio 6000 series versions, which they refer to as a "game changers". Much of what Weldon will present was gleaned from discussions at the FlexRadio banquets at the 2012 and 2013 Dayton Hamventions and also from some of the FDIM (Four Days in May) presentations both years.
Plan to attend for what will probably be a lively meeting. Mark your calendar now! You won't want to miss it!
The CRES radio club was established in 1962 and serves the central Ohio area. Its goals include stimulating interest in amateur radio, the exchange of technical information, emergency readiness, and social activities for the membership and their families.
The club sponsors an informal 2 meter NET every Sunday evening at 9 PM on its repeater (146.67/131.8) and via Echolink at W8ZPF-L (Node 782142). The NET is open to everyone - you do not need to be a member to join in. Visitors are always welcome and encouraged to participate.
Wow...if you have $8000 to spare, maybe you'd like to pick up the new Kenwood TS990? Watch the video below on the rig and note the interesting display over the main dial. This looks like a "do everything" rig indeed. Unfortunately, this website manager isn't going to get one of these any time soon at that price - the xyl would not be pleased! For those in the central Ohio area you can order directly from the Candy store TS990S .
