Tech Net News 07-29-2017

They now promise it’s not making secret maps of your home…or is it?

Our most important news is our next club meeting. We’ll be meeting at the Dallas Medical Center this coming Tuesday, August 1st. Our meeting program will be presented by Pete Loveall, AE5PL. He’ll cover all aspects of APRS, the Automatic Packet Reporting System. The board meeting is at 6:00 PM, the general meeting is at 7:00 PM, and both are free and open to the public.

Our nets tonight include SKYNET at 9:00 PM and our Afterglow Movie net at 10:30 PM. Tonight’s Afterglow Net doesn’t have a specific movie assigned for homework. Instead, we’ll be having a round-table discussion about what makes a good SciFi movie.

This coming Monday is a 5th Monday, and that means we’ll have a Surprise Net on the W5FC 146.88 repeater at 7:00 PM. Be prepared…for anything!
