Meeting Info

September Meeting

The September meeting will be our annual Tailgate Sale beginning at 6:00 PM on Wednesday September 18 at Creve Coeur Lake Park. This is the regular monthly meeting night, but with an earlier start time and an outdoor location. The club’s brats and chips stand with chef Bob, known for good & cheap eats, will be up and running until it runs out. Please bring you own drinks and small bills to minimize making change.

Our location will again be on the eastern shore of the lake. Use Marine Avenue via the Maryland Heights Expressway, which is convenient to I-70 or Page Avenue Expressway drivers.

Turn on to Marine Avenue and drive south 0.8 miles to the pedestrian crosswalk prominently marked with yellow signs. Along the way you will pass the Sailboat Cove sign on your right, a Crystal Springs Quarry Golf Course sign on your left, and a paved parking area with adjacent shelter also on your left. A short distance further down Marine Ave you’ll see an unpaved parking lot on your left where we’ll meet.

As always – please bring plenty of money to spend and radio related stuff to sell. Freebies are always welcome! Someone usually brings an antenna or two and we can always use another one. A couple rigs for operating and homebrew projects for show & tell are always well received. More info via email and the Peanut Whistle as we get closer to the date.

The St. Louis QRP Society meets on the third Wednesday of each month at the Florissant Valley Community College at 7:30 PM in the Engineering Building on the first floor, in or near conference room E143. Anyone with an interest in QRP, homebrewing or kit building, or just having fun with ham radio is welcome to join us.

Have a look at the Google Maps view of the campus; the Engineering Building will be centered in your browser’s window… it’s shaped like an upside-down “T” just to the left of the large parking lot.

You can also review a campus map provided by the College. After clicking that link, you’ll see a photo of the entrance to the Engineering Building that we usually use. Click “X” in the upper right to see the map; Engineering is the southern-most building, labeled “E,” and nestled between parking lots P-14 and P-13.

There are some exceptions to our normal meeting location and time. The September meeting is our annual Tailgate Sale, which is held at Creve Coeur Lake Park. A notice will be posted announcing location details.

Our November meeting is our Annual Holiday Dinner Meeting, held at a local restaurant. The location changes from year to year, so please watch this page for location and time.
