Tech Net News 09-08-2018

csm_waedc_2b3afa5c0dOur next Lecture and Lab will be an RTL-SDR Roundup. Club experts will help you solve software problems and guide you to get the most from your RTL-SDR dongle.

The club still needs volunteers for the 2018 Prism Health Lifewalk on Sunday, October 7th, 2018. Please contact the club and sign up!

We could always use a few more presenters for Tech Net on the Hill on October 27th. Let us know if you could share your skills!

There are a couple of very cool things on the contest calendar this weekend: the ARRL September VHF Contest is going on now, and the “other DARC” is sponsoring a major event, the Worked All Europe DX Contest. European stations get points for working non-European stations, and you can get extra points for sending message traffic—excerpts from your own station log. Please check out the rules for full details.

UPDATE: Bill Brady, KF5ZBL, would like to remind us that the W9IMS Indianapolis Motor Speedway Special Event is almost done for 2018! Because of poor propagation conditions, they’re also on FT-8.
