Invitation to CVRC July 14 Two Part Meeting

Our regular CVRC Meeting is scheduled for July 14, 7:30 to 8 PM, via our Repeater on 146.895 MHz (100 Hz PL).    Then, at 8 PM, we are planning to follow the radio meeting with a presentation about Coaxial Cable by Bob Slettin, KB1QV, using Zoom.  Vice President, Wolf Seidlich, KA1VOU, will be our Host.  Look on Wolf’s Email, scroll down and click on the link to join the Zoom Meeting.  See if you can get it set up a few minutes before the 8 PM starting time.
Bob, KB1QV, gave an excellent brief Field Day educational program about Coax, and he can share more insights about why we need to minimize the signal loss in our feed lines, and how this is actually achieved.

CVRC Meeting Feb. 11th

On Tuesday, Feb. 11th, we will have our monthly meeting at the Hopkinton library, on Houston St. in Hopkinton.

The meeting will highlight an emergency communications forum presented by Rob Farley, k1cfi.

Rob will discuss ARES (the amateur radio emergency service) and will be accompanied by others. Cars, (the capital area repeater society) will also be discussed.  Others will also join that conversation.

Rob is extremely well qualified to discuss these activities, especially based on his many years as a professional in this area.
