With both Rob and Brian handling Tech night, it was full on with the oscilloscopes, including the vintage unit, with the soft yellow glowing eyes. Well done to both for a very entertaining evening.
Don’t forget we are looking for Committee members including President and Secretary, so if you would like to give either position a go, come forward and put your hand up.
Next Tech night, the 25th August will be oscilloscopes.
If you have one, bring it along, and show us your skills. You might show a circuit working with one.
Analog oscilloscope, a video demonstration from Dave of EEV blog, who always gives very interesting stuff, so come along and enjoy this one.

Thanks to all the club members who helped to make it a success;
and others who gave their support, including:
The 2017 AGM has been and gone. A good night was had by all with a great talk by Rob VK5RC on his recent trip to Canada and Alaska. Great photo’s! Thanks to Rob and the outgoing committee for all the hard work and welcome to the new committee.
Well, another very informative and interesting presentation on digital radio and modes by our resident techo Brian VK5VI. A great coverage of digital from the early days through packet radio, QAM, voice encoding etc. into the modern digital world today. Thanks Brian for a great presentation and the preparation done to put a very technical topic into something all those present could understand. 73s Nig.

No need to book just turn up for an evening of good food and conversation!
Thanks again Les for organising this months get together.
Another informative and interesting presentation by Rob (VK5RC) on capacitor characteristics and tuning your radio to get the best possible reception from your rig. Using YouTube videos and a Podcast, Rob also made good use of a webcam and his Icom 7300 to put the podcast audio into context. Thanks again Rob and I am sure this was enjoyed by all those present. The digital session scheduled for this meeting is to be presented at the next meeting on the 23rd June 2017.
YouTube and Podcast links spoken of can be found on the General Links page.
Don’t forget to listen out for Les (VK5KLD) to tell you where the 5th Friday dinner is being held this month, and of course the AGM is coming up on the 14th July 2017.
In August we are having a combined meeting with the Barossa Amateur Radio Club at their meeting venue so look out for news on that one. 73s. Nig.
