All posts for the month April, 2017

Another very informative evening at the North East Radio Club technical meeting this month.  President Rob (VK5RC) gave us some great ideas on how we can use common ICs to control anything from voltage, logic and display, to frequency generation.  A good turn out again for this meeting with many going  away we some good information on ICs they can use for their radio projects.  I counted 8 different ICs instead of the advertised 7 and that didn’t count the 555 circuit printed on Robs ‘T’ shirt he wore to the meeting!   Thanks again Rob.

Everyone is invited to come and join the members of NERC at this general meeting whether you are new to radio or intested in learning more about this exciting hobby.

The presentation for this meeting is:

History of Police Communications + Trunked Radio Networks

Presented by:

Ben VK5BB and Stuart VK5STU

Meetings commence at 7:15pm for a 7:30pm start at the Modbury West Community Hall, Capulet Crescent, Modbury.

Amateur Radio Magazine – NERC showcase.

You had better make sure you get a copy of the May edition of Amateur Radio magazine published by the WIA.  Not only did some great photos taken by Stuart make it into a couple of pages inside to support NERCs involvement in STEM at the TTG Library, but one of these great shots made it to the very prestigious front cover of the mag!  Well done to everyone involved particularly NERC’s ace photographer (VK5STU) and a reminder for those that missed the event back in January, we are planning to do it all over again in the next school holidays so get involved.  73s.
