COOKIES !! March 12, 2011 Meeting Notice
COOKIES !! March 12, 2011 Meeting Notice avatar

The theme of this meeting is COOKIES!!

Why cookies you ask? Will, K6ND, is imposing on the good nature of his XYL (and premier distaff contester), Pamela, K6NDV, to bring her famous cookies. Not to be outdone, Bob W1YRC is making a batch of his West Texas Chocolate Chips cookies too. This is truly a meeting not to be missed by cookie lovers! My recommendation is to skip breakfast so as not to waste stomach capacity on lesser foods.

Meeting place: Crandall House at 11am to 2pm

At the moment of posting the following presentations are scheduled. Check back often for additions to this agenda.

  1. W1XX to announce and promote:  “Operation NEQP:  1 Million or Bust”?
  2. K1DM  presentation on his Morse code training regime. He will also do a TEST RUN using the RufzXP program to let everyone see another way to improve their code proficiency. There is much of interest about Mike’s methodology that this short description fails to do justice to.
  3. W1YRC will give a presentation on the way his other club is approaching lifting the level of technical expertise of members and prospective members. It is an unusual way to make real hams out of people who hold a license but whose understanding of ham radio or electronics comes mainly from the license manual.

Lunch by Chris, KA1GEU  Coffee by John, W1AN, ice cold milk by Pat, NG1G

[Admin note: from the Drake reflector]

Amateur Radio pioneer Leo Meyerson, W0GFQ, will be celebrating his
100th birthday on February 24.  For you youngsters who may not know
who Leo is, he was founder of World Radio Laboratories (WRL) and
manufactured a number of now classic transmitters and other
products.  That included the Globe Scout and Globe Chief 90 some of
us, me included, cut our Novice teeth on back in the 1950’s.

QCWA Chapter 154 in West Palm Springs is having a party honoring
Leo’s birthday and they’ve asked that his friends and fans send him a
QSL card with “Happy 100th Birthday Leo” on it.  Send it to:

Leo Meyerson, W0GFQ
19 Park Lane
Rancho Mirage, CA 92270

Also, on February 23-24 there will be a Special Event station, W0G,
to commemorate Leo’s birthday on 14,265 Kc. from 1800Z to 2359Z each day.
