The next regular club meeting is Thursday, February 20, 2020 (always the third Thursday) at the East County Sheriff’s Station’s Community Room, 2101 E. Olsen Rd, Thousand Oaks at 7:30 pm. Talk-in coordination is on the Bozo repeater, 147.885 (- 127.3)
Topic/Guest Speakers – Solar Cycle: Ken Larsen – KJ6RZ discusses sunspots which have a profound effect on HF radio communications. HF communications are excellent during solar maximum (lots of sunspots), but not so great during solar minimum when few if any sunspots are visible. Why is this? Why do the number of sunspots follow an 11-year cycle? What are the predictions for the upcoming solar cycle?
