General Meeting February 2nd 2017

Program: Loop Antennas and the Chilly Half Marathon

Eugene VE3BTS will describe his experiments with a loop antenna and his novel Arduino tuning control. 

Kevin VA3KRA will describe the ARES plans for communications support for the Chilly Half Marathon and how we can prepare to participate in this event.

Guests are always welcome.  Bring a friend!


Presentation – Greg Trasuk, VA3TSK

BARC member, Greg Trasuk (VA3TSK) will be doing a presentation at the Hamilton Internet of Things meetup on Nov 30.  He’ll be talking about interfacing real world inputs and outputs to the Raspberry Pi using GPIO.

One thing that should be mentioned – the location is on the fourth floor of an old building in downtown Hamilton, and there’s no elevator, so anyone mobility-challenged might have some difficulty.
