April 1st meeting – no fooler
Brave the “final” snow of the season and you’ll be rewarded at the April 1st meeting with an informative evening of friends plus an interesting program on a topic that forever intrigues – HF tuners. A tuner was my second homebrew project built under the supervision of a neighbor ham. We’ll address the age old question, “Do tuners really “tune?” If you want to enjoy the HF bands, tuners are a must. At this meeting we’ll see a couple of short but helpful videos on tuners, plus get hands on experience with some manual tuners.
PRC Earth Day – Special Event
Our 7th Earth Day Special Event is almost here. Saturday, April 13th will soon be here and this promises to be the best ever! At the April 1st meeting we’ll wrap up our planning so that it will go without a “hitch”, an appropriate word because this will be our 6th straight year at Stearns Homestead Historical Farm in downtown Parma. We’d love for you to be with us but if that’s not possible please join us on the air to chat with one of our visitors. We’re expecting many young scouts to join us in the Stearn’s cabin. An exchange of greetings with you on the air could be the moment that inspires these youngster to join our amazing hobby. This year we’ll be operating on 2m, on the 145.410 repeater as well as 20 and 40 meters. And in keeping with the event, all transmitters be operating only on power from the “Ol Sol.” Share the above Earth Day 2019 flier with friends.
