Tonight’s meeting is a “regular” meeting, in that we begin things at Denny’s at I-270 and McDonnell Blvd. at 6:00pm. This is optional, but everyone’s welcome. It’s a good time for extended discussion prior to the meeting.
Then we’ll move along to the meeting proper, which begins at 7:30pm and takes place on the campus of Florissant Valley Community College. Details and a map are always available under the “Meeting Info” tab above.
Our meetings are open, and you’re welcome to join us. What do we do at meetings? Generally the format is an open roundtable, with show-and-tell. Folks pass around projects they’ve completed (or are working on). It’s a good time for Q&A — if you’re looking for opinions, a group of hams is never lacking for those 🙂
Tonight I’m going to bring my first QRP kit: a Backpacker II from Tejas RF. And I’ll also bring my St. Louis Tuner. Plus (and most importantly) I’m bringing the assembly/operation manuals for both. Turns out I have an old friend who’s getting radio-active once again, and he has mis-placed his manuals. I had to do some serious digging, but I managed to find ’em. It all caused a great wave of nostalgia here. Lots of fun.
There will be lots of other things to see and discuss tonight. Please join us if you can!
