October Meeting

PLEASE READ!!! Location change for tomorrows meeting! FIELD TRIP!

Hello all,

Our normal meeting would be this Thursday, October 1.

We are faced with trying times. The Corona numbers are going up, and we
are challenged as to how to deal with meetings and group gatherings.

I’ve been trying to find new things to do at the meetings in an effort
to get the membership excited again about attending them.

Previous to the pandemic I had planned in conjunction with PBS Engineer
Cyrus Smith, NU7Q, to have a field trip up to the High Flats transmitter
site at 4-corners. This is where all of the TV and radio stations had to
move when Green Mountain was torn town this last summer. My thoughts
were it would be interesting to see how signals were broadcast and the
equipment that is used. In addition to equipment I was going to utilize
this trip to discuss grounding techniques as they apply to HAM radio.

We will have the meeting as follows:

Meet at my shop at 45 Contractor Drive near 4 corners at 6:30. We can
car pool, or individuals that would rather drive by themselves can take
their own vehicles to the High Flats site. The tour will take about 1
1/2 hours. After the tour we will adjourn.

I’m planning on a tour next month of the PBS TV studios on campus.

If there are questions please call me.
