We will have three short presentations:
- the first on the Yaesu Radio Fusion which is the technology used in our repeaters
- a video of Bouvet Island where the DX expedition was headed before the ship had an engineering casualty and had to sail away, and l
- the President will also give a short report on how to get your wire antennae high into the trees just using air and PVC pipe.
Hope to see you at the meeting.
