Tonights topic - Share your thoughts or experiences with strange or interesting ham radio related rituals.
Next weeks topic - Share a fun/memorable past home-brew/experiment/project.
k9w9 - Jake - Is waiting for the freeze and will need to close up the porch soon. Remembers that field day is strange each year ;). Might talk about home brewing for the next EPRC meeting?
ak4wq - Soren - At 8pm will be the satellite pass on Thursday. Interested in hearing about Ham radio related home brew stuff and thinks cheap ham radio DIY is always fun. It seems all mannerisms in ham radio are strange to begin with.
n0wfj - Bob - Enjoying the weekend. Last pile of leaves all bagged and done.
Ke0ecf - Ron - Went to the veteran luncheon at the church. Researching the programming of EF Johnson at the moment. The moons orbit takes it closer to us now tonight than it will be for the next few years. Make sure to check it out.
ke0br - David - The moon is the brightest it will be for the next 30 years. David has lots of home brew projects around. Lots started.
Wa0vll - Roger - Many years ago he converted a CB (RME?) tunable receiver and crystals for transmit to get it on the 10 meter band. From a hill in Bloomington he was able to talk to some folks in New Zealand. 3 watts and snow coming down with the antenna hooked to the bumper of a car. This may have been around 1971.
kd0mgh - Ron - Nothing new from his end. One for the count. Recovering from the Vikings loss.
Ke0ahu - Alan - Trying to put up an G5rv-mini antenna. In the attempt to put it up into a tree Alan ended up with a full beer can up in a tree 40 feet up. Will need to maybe tie it off to the Chimney.
k0fey - Jonathan - Got that HF and VHF antenna into the attic (HOA rules) finally and first net at the desk instead of the HT.
A great contest is occurring all this year:

BroadCastify is now set up. You can listen to the repeater (with a 30 second delay) thought the link below. This is a great way to hear yourself for audio and whatever.
