Ham Help

If you don’t know everything about amateur radio yet, that’s OK. As a club, we have a broad spectrum of interests and experiences. Please feel free to ask questions at this part of the meeting. With 20 hams, there’s bound to be 40 different answers!

Access

146.58 MHz FM simplex will be monitored for anyone who needs help finding the site or for access to the building. (Monitoring is done with handhelds, so range is limited.) If you’re running late and are locked out, please call us on the radio. We’ll send someone to let you in.

SECURITY NOTE: Anyone who does not have their own Microsoft badge for unescorted access to Microsoft buildings MUST be escorted into Building 35 and conference room 4563 by a badged MicroHAMS member. Do NOT under any circumstances attempt to “tag” onto or “tailgate” Microsoft employees entering the building. Please congregate about five minutes before the meeting outside the lobby entrance on the south side of the building. If you have a Microsoft badge, please check outside the front entrance for other club members who need to be escorted.

MicroHAMS meetings are open to club members, those interested in joining the club (see club membership policy at http://www.microhams.com), and guests of club members. Others may also attend a club meeting by sending email to the club at least seven days prior to the meeting. Space for guests is limited.

Agenda

Show and Tell

We’ve been way too humble. Now’s your chance to show off! Anything related to ham radio goes — radios, antennas, software, go-kits, tools, awards, contesting, DX, SDR, CW, space weather, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, radio kits, etc. Bring your gear, pictures, or short video clips. This is super informal.

Wrap up of MHDC 2018

Over the next couple weeks an official MHDC2018 landing page will be put together, so we can archive all the presentations and links to the videos. As of March 25th, YouTube is still ‘processing’ the live stream, which ended up being almost nine hours long. When it is done, it will get flipped over to being publicly available and a link added from here.

Our video editor (Budd-WB7FHC) is going to work on taking the live stream and all the raw video to produce individual videos for each talk. As he gets those done, links will be made available on the MHDC2018 landing page.
