IMPORTANT TIME CHANGE
Note that our monthly general meetings (first Tuesday of each month) will start at 8:00pm rather than 7:30pm until further notice.
The PARC Homebrew Group is pleased to announce that our guest presenter for the September meeting will be Pete Juliano N6QW. Pete is a prominent homebrewer and co-host of the Soldersmoke Podcast. Pete co-authored the “Let’s Build Something” article in QRP Quarterly. If you remember, this was a project we undertook a couple of years ago. He has also written articles for the G-QRP journal, SPRAT. Pete will be talking to us about SDR Homebrewing and will present via video conferencing.
As seating is limited, please reserve your spot by sending your request to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible and a confirmation of attendance will be sent to you.
