August Meeting – Report

The meeting on Thursday 15th August was really great, very well attended, with superb data-modes demos and displays. Colin G3VTS had his TenTec Jupiter receiving 20m data signals with the aid of a small magnetic loop constructed for the occasion. Stuart M0GPC showed a range of early packet radio controllers. Paul M0UTC demonstrated various data-modes from his car. Jon M0JMM displayed his portable hf and vhf data-modes station and exchanged DRM pictures with Paul on 2m. As a side show, Derek G3NKS had a couple of tables selling “Silent Key” stuff. Great interest was shown in all the displays and much chat took place; it was clearly a very popular meeting – there were 39 names in the attendance book. We were please to welcome visitors Mike M0JVP and Arron 2E0CUX. Many thanks to all who brought along equipment and to Andy M0JLY for manning the refreshments bar.
