Our October Meeting is set for next Tuesday October 4th at 7:30 pm. at the Fletcher’s Creek Sportsplex.
Pierre PM will be starting up his CW code class before the meeting, so anyone interested attending, please show up at 7:00pm.
For the meeting, yours truly will be introducing the DV4 mini dongle. The DV4 dongle is a USB dongle that can create a mini-hotspot that allows you to use DSTAR, Yaesu Fusion, DMR, APCO25, and DPMR services. The DV4 series of products is a new and exciting set of products to help the amateur radio enthisiast to get involved with digital voice. To learn more, visit http://wirelesshold.com. I’ll be demoing with a D-Star handheld. Anyone with a DMR handheld, I encourage you to bring it in so we can try a DMR setup.
Also on the agenda, and a big thanks to Edmondo ITA for reminding me of a great Youtube channel Hak5. Hak5 is a youtube channel primarily of young computer hacker enthusiasts who have been bitten by the SDR bug. They cover working with GNU Radio, explaining what SDR is, and how to let people from around the world use your SDR dongle to listen to radio stations local to your area.
If you have something that you wish to share, or have an announcement to make, or would like to present a project you have been working on, please let me know, and I’ll insure that you are given sufficent time to inform the club. Aslo, if there is a presentation you would like to see, or a subject you would like to cover, please email me – email@example.com, and I’ll endeavor to make it happen!
Enjoy your weekend everyone, and I look forward to seeing you all at the meeting!
