MHDC 2018 – Live Stream!

The official MHDC AV team will be streaming the conference live this weekend, so people not able to attend in person can still watch. We will be using YouTube and plan on having the cameras live by 8:45am when Scott-N7SS kicks things off. I’ll be monitoring the chat room during the day, so if someone watching remotely would like to ask questions, you will still be able to.

I will do my best to post the slides for each talk prior to the talk starting, so you can follow along remotely.

MicroHAMS club meeting – January 17th, 2017

MicroHAMS Club Meeting
Tuesday, January 17th at 6:00 PM
Location: Building 35/4561

Agenda
Portable Radio Kits by Scott N7SS
Come see Scott’s Blue Box to get some ideas about how to make your own portable radio station that is highly functional even when the going gets rough. When you make your own custom rig, it also has to be smart, fun, and cool. N7SS shows us one way of how that’s done.

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.

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 or Tim’s phone at (425) 898-3815. 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 4561 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.

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.
