Monthly Club Meeting
June is FIELD DAY month, so the topic of our meeting oddly enough is Field Day. Field Day Manager Eric, N8YC, will hold an organizational meeting before the general meeting at 6:00pm. If you miss this planning meeting, we'll discuss some of those topics at the general meeting. And in case you can't attend the club Field Day effort, we'll discuss how you can participate in Field Day from your home QTH.
OH-KY-IN meets at the St. Bernard Municipal Building (Rec. Hall) at 120 Washington Ave. in St. Bernard (corner of Washington & Tower), on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30pm. Go in through the doors that face the high school on Washington. For more information, click HERE.
Visitors are ALWAYS welcome! WE'LL SEE YOU THERE!
For our monthly meeting on May 7th, Dave Nutini from the Hamilton County Board of Health, explained what "P.O.D.S" are (Points Of Distribution), and how important they are in distributing medicine, care, information, and more, to people during a county-wide emergency event. Thanks to the P.O.D.'s system and amateur radio, they might save your life in an emergency.
For our April monthly meeting, Duffy Beischel, WB8NUT, led a presentation and discussion on the digital modes (PSK, CW, MFSK, D-Star and more). This is an ever-changing and interesting area of technology, if you missed this meeting, you missed a LOT!
For our meeting on Tuesday, March 5th, Fred Schneider, K9OHE, will present a workshop to build a simple portable VHF/UHF antenna. All materials will be provided and workstations will be set up. Simple soldering skills will be taught as needed. A $5.00 donation is suggested to offset the cost of materials.
UPDATE: Fred will present his project on Saturday, June 22nd, at the OH-KY-IN Field Day location.
At our February meeting, Ted Morris, NC8V, presented "Message Handling for Fun but Not Profit." Ted addressed the common benefits, questions and misunderstandings about amateur radio message handling, also known as "traffic." It was a terrific presentation, thanks a lot, Ted.
BTW, Ted will be making much of the material he presented at the meeting available to us for download. We'll post the link on this website as it becomes available.
Ted says, "If message handling isn't one of your favorite activities, at least NOW you know why."
