RARC Wednesday, March 17th 2021 meeting

This month’s meeting will include a presentation on the US National Grid system by Ken K0SAR. The USNG is a mapping system that uses latitude/longitude and GPS coordinates, rather than address based mapping, which becomes useless when an area is disturbed by tornadoes, hurricanes and flooding. Below is a link to the drop box with compressed files for the mapping exercises and the Zoom application info.
