Larry Irons, KØLAI,
will introduce us to "Radio Echo Sounding":

the use of radar to map ice thickness and detect objects buried beneath sheets of ice.

Larry will present his two journeys to
Antarctica, New Zealand, Pago Pago, and Hawaii.

He will show us some beautiful scenery and talk about radio waves and ham radio, too.

POSSIBLE DRC MEETING CANCELLATIONS:

As every Coloradoan knows, the winter weather can take a sudden change for the worse.
Should that happen the day of our monthly DRC meeting,
listen for meeting status reports on our 145.49 or 448.625 MHz repeaters during the afternoon of the meeting day.


 

Fact of the Day

 


 

PACKET RADIO CLASS VIDEOS
now available on-line.

The link below will take you to Bud's (KØHVA, SK) Youtube Playlist,
where you can view all of Bill Rinker's (W6OAV) Packet Radio Class sessions.

These sessions took 10 weeks for Bill to present in 1992, and they are in-depth.

Even though there have been some changes with newer technology, most of the information is still very current and usable.
