Our next meeting will be on July 19th, at 7 pm.
Presented by Bill, W6OAV
Right now we are in the middle of the summer Sporadic E (Es) season
Es allows VHF signals (28-144 MHz) to propagate over long distances via a reflection from the Es layer.
Es doesn’t require big antennas, high power or any specific polarization. It is a fun mode with lots of surprises.
If you are interested in learning about Es, plan to attend the July meeting.
Bill's PowerPoint presentation will cover what Es is, how it works, how to find it and how to work it. There will be a couple of demonstrations as well.
This will be an interesting and educational presentation...
We will be meeting at the Jefferson County Administration & Courts Bldg.

These repeaters and the packet gateway (2M side) can be used by
all hams with Technician class and above licenses.
They are located west of Denver in Lakewood, providing local metropolitan area coverage -
however, they are not wide area repeaters.
And, remember that our wide area repeater on Squaw Mountain, 449.350,
is also an EchoLink® station, number 4140.
Call your out of town ham friends, or have them call you
by connecting through their local EchoLink® station or their PC.
Please click on our DRC Repeaters Page...in the left column...
it has photos showing our EchoLink® repeater location.
