Welcome Back!

Hi Everyone!

I trust everyone has had a great summer, and has had the opportunity to rest, play, and experiment!

So tomorrow (September 1) is the start of our new club year 2015-2016!  We meet at the same location (Fletchers Creek Sportsplex at the corner of Ray Lawson Blvd and McLaughlin Road in Brampton) at 7:30 pm in the same room (Youth Room).

Tomorrow will be the renewal of your club membership.  Edmondo ITA, our membership director, will have preprinted applications ready for you to sign off on.

On the agenda tomorrow, I will be doing a presentation on using the APRS client APRSISCE/32 – a Windows APRS client with a lot of nice features.  This is part of a project that I am working on, that combines APRS, a new software TNC called DireWolf, and a computer board like the Raspberry Pi, and a simple radio receiver as an application that can be done over HSMM mesh.  Tomorrow’s presentation will focus on the introduction of the APRSISCE/32.  Using APRSISCE/32 is a great way to get your feet wet with APRS – as you can start getting involved with APRS without a radio or TNC.  Future presentations will build those elements in.

I’d also like to take the opportunity to remind other members on the executive to report on any new developments in their areas in order for our club members to get caught up.

I look forward to seeing you all there, and help us kick off a great start to 2015-2016.
