September 2014 Meeting Minutes


Rally The Troops!

CQ everyone!
I hope you have been able to work W1AW/5. HF is an excellent way to expand your radio horizon. Last week I took a 100 watt HF radio with me on a river rafting trip last month and made many contacts. I used an Off Center Fed dipole with an AL-100 antenna tuner. Do you take ham radio with you on trips and vacations? How about in your daily life? If you were to lose phone service now, could you communicate with your friends and family?
Not only was HF used we used UHF ht's for our main means of communication on the river.
This Saturday night we will have a guest net control operator Evan KG5DIS whom is a Life scout in Boy Scouts. Show him support saturday night on 444.000 at 8 pm.
Thank you for tuning in and 73!

The Lady Ham
Hey ladies! Hope you are having a great summer. I am looking forward to fall & the fun things we can do! I do plan to have a ladies net. Unfortunately the 030 repeater is still down, so I will keep you updated.

Once we get done with Oktoberfest & The Oklahoma State Fair I will pick an evening for us ladies to meet up. I’m thinking of a Friday evening & meeting at a restaurant & this is a great way to get to know each other. All ladies welcome whether you have a license or not. Give me some suggestions of places & dates to work with.
