Upcoming Club Presentation

Another good turnout both in-person and via Zoom for our September club meeting. Thanks to all those who made the effort to attend. It’s very much appreciated by our presenters who put a lot of time and passion into preparing and presenting. And speaking of presenters, a big thank you to Jim KN6OON for Friday night’s presentation on the use of embedded micro-computers within modern HAM equipment.

If you were not able to see our September presentations, or other past months’ presentations, they are available on the club’s YouTube page. Check them out.

Our next club meeting will be on Friday, October 14, at the Crossroads church in Auburn, 7:30 PM.

For our next meeting we are truly blessed and honored to have Steve R. Dyer W1SRD presenting from his vast experience in helping to organize, conduct and participating in many, many DX expeditions worldwide. And we are talking some very remote, exotic, and hard to access places. Most recently, April 16-29, 2022, Steve traveled to and participated in the DX expedition in the Ralvauee, Austral Islands, French Polynesia OC-114. Two years prior to that, 2022, he traveled to and participated in the DX Expedition to South Orkney Island AN-008. These are truly some epic travels and adventures. We are most fortunate that Steve will share his experiences with us.

These are just a small example of the HAM adventures Steve has participated in. For more on his exploits check out his QRZ page.

It is good reading and fascinating.

So, mark your calendars for the next club meeting. You do not want to miss this!

73s, be safe, and enjoy!

SFARC Vice President
