2020 Monthly General Meetings on the third Thursday Start at 7:00 PM
- *** NEW Notice-
This week we will be using the 145.190 repeater for our weekly Monday Evening Net until further notice .
Check your e-mail for more details on the 145.130 repeater work and transmitter PL tone setting (77Hz.).
The 145.130 repeater is being worked on and is not currently ready for heavy use in our net program.
Due to the COVID-19 virus restrictions, all members 65 years of age and older who are considered "High Risk" must only use our radio net to participate in our Monthly General Meetings. Person to Person meetings are not allowed until the virus threat subsides.
Our next monthly meeting on the Third Thursday will be conducted on the 145.190 repeater as an on-Air only meeting. No members will meet in person at the DeTar North conference room until advised otherwise.
Go to the MEETINGS menu tab for monthly meeting information.
The preliminary monthly General Meeting agenda may be found under the Meeting Agendas sub-tab under the 'MEETINGS/CONTACT main menu tab' a few days before the meeting.
Check out Bob Whitaker's "Indoor Antennas" article in the 'Projects Page' on the Main Menu.
We have also added a second article from Bob titled "More Indoor Antennas" on the same page.
There are two new articles under the "Projects" / Useful Information section
One discusses Seven+1 Tips for Better Repeater Operations
The other has some ARRL Quick Reference Operating Aids (they will occasionally be expanded)
Check out our new section under the "Projects" Tab that contains "Product Reviews".
Gary and Bob have contributed several reviews that are now available for your viewing.
Directions to Harvey's Busy Bee location.
Harvey says: The Google map shows it being about 1/2 mile from the actual entrance. If coming from 1447, the entrance to the Busy Bee is immediately BEFORE Cattle Guard Road makes a sharp turn to the right. As you get on Cattle Guard from 1447 you will go over a slight rise and then down a hill. When you pass the steel building on your left, slow down and start looking to your left for our gate. There is a white sign to the left of the gate with the address so there will be no mistake. We will try to keep a watch on 146.520 Simplex if you get lost, or try my cell 361-676-0356. Hope to see you there!
