There are two interesting contests going on right now: the ARRL CW DX contest, and the much more relaxed AWA AM QSO Party. Several of my rigs can operate AM, but I’ve never even tried to make an AM contact. I guess I’d better get to work!
The next Lecture and Lab will take place on Saturday, Feb. 24th. We’ll be building the XR2206 High Precision Function Signal Generator. This kit is easy to build and it’s a useful piece of test equipment. Bring $15.00 and a soldering station to the Dallas Medical Center and meet us in the 3rd floor community room. We’ll be there from about 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, with a possible break for lunch.
We had a few interesting announcements during the net: The Irving Hamfest is coming up soon…and so is the TESSA conference. The Garland Amateur Radio Club will have technician classes starting on this coming Tuesday, February 20th.
