Our speaker is being called away for a meeting with “UK Space Agency” on Thursday and sounds extremely busy.
This presents us with an opportunity.
We will still meet at Woodford Park, Woodley, 8pm, 10th May as usual.
If you have a burning desire to talk about/share something, please let
me know! It doesn’t have to be a full on polished presentation. If fact
I’d prefer exactly the opposite this time round.
Baldrick has a few cunning plans. However, yours are most likely better.
So here’s my turnip:
* (All) brief discussion about the future of the club – get
feedback/ideas from you. eg. Maybe dial back talks a bit and dial up
more practical stuff? 10-15 minutes tops. Springboard for discussions
over a pint at the rugby club, perhaps.
Then break up, have tea etc and as parallel activities:
* short FT8 digimode demo
I realise computers and radio may not be everyone’s cup of tea but
having got FT8 going in Rx mode on 50 MHz I can see it’s huge potential.
* program up the club DMR handheld
* learn to use the Marconi 2955 test set we acquired from G8ZWN
* Zello https://zello.com/ demo – PTT on mobile telephones thingy;
* “gardener’s question time” type q&a for 5 minutes?
* ???? let me know!
This is literally just off the top of my head.
I will keep the website up to date as the evening shapes up.
