Club News March 3

– It’s great to see our simplex nets in “off” weeks (2nd, 4th and occasionally 5th Wed) are well attended. We had 10 member check-ins last week. After the net, several of us switched to the digital mode C4FM (Yaesu Fusion) and were able to intercommunicate. We also had a Garland station join us. For fun, we’ll try that again at the close of our next net on March 11. If you have a Yaesu radio capable of the C4FM mode, have it ready!  In the future, we could try this with the other popular digital modes DMR and DStar.
– The club submitted the log for our Winter Field Day afternoon operation. In total, we contacted 47 stations and used six different bands. 
– This month on third Wednesday, March 18, we’ll hold our quarterly club meeting so there will not be a dinner. Instead, meet at the White Rock United Methodist Church, Room 204 at 7 PM. We will have a couple of presentations and maybe a door prize or two. 
– Our first Wednesday lunch is on for tomorrow, March 4 at 11:30 AM at Verona’s. Hope to see you then.
