Puyallup in March 2016

December MicroHAMS meeting will be dinner only with some door prizes for participants!

New SDR Group – John Petrich, W7FU

John is making a special interest group (SIG) about Software Defined Radio(SDR).

Please stay tuned for another message to MicroHAMS real soon that talks about this.

We’ll meet three times a year.

Let’s compile a list of names of MicroHAMS who would be interested.

He’s open to ideas about the location to meet.

The first group meeting will be after the holidays.

Low end SDRs (in terms of price) have been of the most interest, generally.

MHDC SDR Idea

We could have an early start session at MicroHAMS Digital Conference 2016 about getting started with SDR, say, 8:00 AM.
