A technical program is presented by one of our members or a guest presenter at our monthly meeting (except in January, when we hold elections, and June, when we discuss our club's upcoming Field Day activities). The topics range from ham radio to personal computing to anything that would be of interest to our members. The presentations may be formal or informal and always generate lively discussions.
Here are the programs and presenters scheduled for upcoming meetings:
October - Pat Volkmann, W9JI. FT-8 - A Popular Digital Mode. Pat will discuss his experience (including live demo) with running the FT-8 digital mode on the HF bands.
November - Vic Shier, WT9Q. A New, New Radio. Vic has a new Flex Radio 6600 (SCR) for contesting remotely.
December - Scott Ruesch, W9JU. SATERN. The Salvation Army Team Emergency Radio Network, or SATERN, is a network of amateur radio operators who run or connect with various regional and international nets to handle emergency communications traffic. Scott is the SATERN coordinator for Wisconsin and Upper Michigan.
If you would like to present a topic at a meeting, contact Pat, W9JI.
We publish a robust monthly newsletter, edited by Tom (W9IPR), which details the club's activities (past and planned); provides technical information; and usually introduces some new and longstanding ORC members. Please visit our newsletter archive or click below to download the latest!
