Two of our club members,
April, KI7GFJ and Gordon, NW7D
came up with a PP presentation to their HOA,
about sitting down at the table together.
The use of very old ham radio technology, made the spotlight in July, with the successful rescue of 12 boys and their coach. After getting lost in a network of caves, the group was stranded. Here is an article highlighting the 'Hey Phone', designed by SK-John Hey, G3TDZ. Hey Phones were used by the British Cave Rescue Council. Low frequency can penetrate deep into the ground, using either induction loop antennas or with electrodes: http://bcra.org.uk/creg/heyphone/pdf/radcom-january-2002.pdf
Our Amateur Radio Operators visited with Surprise City Council, during Field Day.
What a great event! Ray and his son Jimmy, Frosty, John
and a few more club members hung out in Prescott.
Harry AF7UT gave us a great presentation, where we got a
good close up of his "Fox in a Box".
Club member Dick Stout KE7RD shows off some of his rare communication radios during our last meeting at St. Clement Church.
If you didn't make it, you missed a good one! Manny KI7QLD
added his special seasoning to the grilled burgers and YUM!!
Club member Gordon NW7D took some great shots of the Blue Angels show.
Thank you for sharing, Gordon.
