School is in session !

For the past two months, our members have been staying after meeting to increase their “HAM Education.”

Last month, our pres, Mike N8MRC, held class for hams interested in becoming Volunteer Examiners..

This last meeting, our resident engineer, Jay K8DC, conducted a seminar on the science and applied technology involved in constructing efficient choke and current baluns for line to antenna load impedance matching and elimination of common mode rf on the outside of coaxial transmission lines.

QSL Card Project Nears Completion ? ! ?

We haven’t re-designed our club QSL card since we changed our club callsign…

So, for the past few weeks, our members have been working up “concept” cards for consideration.  Here are a few cards to look at and critique.

Please feel free to leave comments and suggestions.  Did we leave something out?  Does something need tweaking?  Thanks in advance for your input!
