The meeting started with a mini-auction of kit from the shack of the late M0ITF. There were bargains to be had and several members went home with some useful goodies. However the reserves were not met on the more valuable lots so these will be sold by other means, including rallies. Many thanks to everyone who supported the auction, and particularly to Mike G4GUG for doing a super job as the “porter” holding up and describing the various lots.
The second part of the meeting was a session by Barry M0HFY on PSK. He spoke about the various forms of this particular data-mode and illustrated how it could be used with the HRD logging program. A very interesting talk, supported by good screen-shots, even for those like me with little or no intention of trying the mode! The talk greatly improved our knowledge of PSK and we’re very grateful to Barry for his time and trouble.
A brief survey of members’ opinion on the suitability of the venue for our regular monthly meeting indicated a preference to remain at Brizen.
Thanks also go to Colin G3VTS for manning the kitchen.
