John Meade, W2XS Entertains with the Exciting World of QRP Operating!


John, W2XS gave a great presentation of the world of QRP. He brought a table chock full of qrp equipment, along with a bag of his fav antennas. There was good discussion on all sides. Peter, AA2VG, brought along his latest Mountain Topper rig, while Steve N2PQJ quietly worked JT65 contacts qrp style right in the meeting room. QRP boomed for the night. A big shout out of thanks to John for his time with the club.


LARC News From Our Members

Peter - AA2VG reports that he is having a lot of fun with his new Icom 7300. He also reports the XYL got a new stove and oven. Not only is he going to be doing a lot of CW, he'll be well fed in the process.

Scott - AC2FV reports that he's installed an SCS DR-7400 Dragon P4 modem in his station. He's using the modem for faster transmissions with Winlink® email comms.

Bruno - KC2ESI reports that he's spotted some intermod at the site. He has tweeked the system to reduce or eliminate the issue.

Jack - K2JX reports that he has finely tuned the club packet system. Give the packet station a workout, guys!

New ham and club members John - KD2LKN and Chris - KD2LKA made their official ham debuts at the Cow Harbor race. Great job, guys!

This year's menu will include the usual SSB/CW/GOTA stations, plus the use of an NVIS antenna. Details are being worked on to try and contact each ARES Division on the island via HF. Join the fun, and make sure you attend the June 11 meeting.
