Our Vice-President, David, KG5EIU, has won the Whit and Anne Griffith Community Service Award!
Our next Lecture and Lab will be all about using a cool, inexpensive software-defined receiver based on the RTL2832. Bring $20.00 and any computer—even a Raspberry Pi—to the 3rd-floor community room of the Dallas Medical Center at 10:00 am on April 28th, and be prepared to learn. We’ll be in the main hospital building. And, if you don’t like having fun on the cheap, the North Texas Mentorfest will be taking place in Rowlett on the same day.
In contesting, there are several operating events going on right now. The NA SSB Sprint runs from 7:00 pm to 11:00 pm tonight; a band change rule will keep everyone moving and active. Texas State Parks on the Air runs tonight until 9:00 pm, and from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm tomorrow. There’s a Florida State Parks on the Air event this weekend, too. DXers can enjoy the Italian QRP Club’s Quarterly Marathon, which ends tomorrow afternoon.
