During the pandemic, the meetings will be taking place at the usual meeting date and time via Zoom web conferencing until it is deemed safe to hold the meeting in person.
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 scheduled for upcoming meetings (meeting will be via Zoom until further notice):
March - Marconi's Transpacific Wireless Telegraph, Michael Schultz, WH6ZZ
April - Aluminum Antenna Mast Project, Fred Schwierske, W9KEY
May - Virtual Shack Tour, Mike Harrington, KD9GCN
June - Field Day, Ken Boston, W9GA
July - Members Field Day Reports, Pat Volkmann, W9JI
If you would like to present a topic at a meeting, contact Pat, W9JI.
We publish a robust monthly newsletter, edited by Ben Evans (K9UZ), 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!
Everyone is welcome to join our weekly informal two meter net held every Tuesday evening at 8:00 PM. Members and non-members are encouraged to check in on the 146.970 MHz club repeater.
