Please join us for the monthly meeting this Wednesday at 7:00 pm on Zoom. Details are in an Email sent out Sunday, and on the club’s calendar. We will be discussing Field Day 2021 on June 26th at the Richfield Community center. This will be an abbreviated event this year. Set up will begin at 9 am and tear down at dusk.

Slides from the Ed Fong presentation

Ed Fong made a presentation to RARC at the April meeting, and the feedback has been all positive. Follow the link below. The last slide has a discounted price list. Mention RARC when ordering. Students of DR. Fong’s RF classes fabricate the antennas as lab projects, and the proceeds go to supporting the students.

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.
