June post meeting

Hey everyone, sorry for the late notice on what is going on in June.  We’ll try to inform you earlier of the July activity (at the June one, in fact).

We are starting a series of meetings on event preparedness.  Some of the specifics haven’t been nailed down, but the June meeting will be focussed on:

  • Demonstrating common types of cables used in ham radio and on events
  • Demonstrating common types of antennas and briefly discussing their advantages and disadvantages
  • Discussion of what should be in your even preparedness kit (similar to what is often called a “Jump Kit”)
  • Demonstration of how cable connectors are installed
  • Brief discussion of what it takes to get a ham radio license for those interested

Please come with the radio that you most commonly use for events so that we can plan for what types of connectors we may need for future meetings as we build our kits.  If you don’t have a radio, no worries!  We’ll talk about that too.

The meeting is (today) June 9, 2010 in the computer science building at UVU at 7pm.  There will be a presidency meeting at 6:15 (or as soon thereafter as you can get there) for those on the committee and in the presidency.
