If you were at our February meeting, you likely heard that we’re planning some new things for 2019. Well, maybe not new, but we’re bringing back some things that CVARC hasn’t done in a while.
It’s been a few years since we’ve had a real club picnic, one that wasn’t also a Mini-Field Day. So we’re planning to have a club picnic in August – a picnic where spouses and children are encouraged to attend – a picnic that’s less about radio and more about good food and socializing… although there will be a little radio fun.
CVARC hasn’t had a Transmitter Hunt in a while, so the Board thought that it might be fun to do a one-transmitter T-Hunt as part of the end-of-summer picnic. Hopefully it will be fun, and not too difficult. If it goes well, and participants enjoy it, we can plan a larger, multi-transmitter event for later in the year. Of course participants will need a Yagi antenna, so a tape measure Yagi and attenuator will be our next project build. The project build will be sometime this summer, leading up to the picnic. Detail to follow.
Hopefully you’re as excited about all of this as I am.
