We had a great net tonight with a total of 7 participants, lasting 31 minutes. We also had some folks linger for an unofficial after-net. Below are a few notes from tonight’s net:
- The Arlington Net meets over at 145.470 on Tuesdays at 7:30, normally over by 8:00pm – so not a conflict for us.
- We did have some reports of interference from a repeater in Easton, Maryland. Issue was reported from stations in Virginia.
- WB4MJF – Randy is interested in software defined radios for a future club meeting (including dongles), he also reported we sounded good from inside CostCo during last week’s net.
- The next in person meeting is January the 14th at 7:30pm at HACDC. We will be discussing online remote radio receivers – you can find more information at our MeetUp site at: http://www.meetup.com/hac-dc/
W3HAC will be participating in the RTTY round-up contest this weekend, if you are interested in operating, or learning how to operate please drop us a line – happy to have you!
