The next meeting of the Story County Amateur Radio Club will be at 7:30 pm, Thursday, January 9, 2014. For this month only, we will be meeting on the second thursday of the month. The meeting will be in Conference Room D next to Bessie Meyers Auditorium on the first floor of Mary Greeley Medical Center (MGMC). The closest parking is in the lot north of the ER and ambulance garage. Enter through the North Door where MGMC meets McFarland Clinic.

The program will be a video "Antique Radio Restoration Volume 2" At the February 2013 meeting we saw Volume 1 of this DVD set, showing the restoration of a 1936 Philco table radio. Volume 2 describes a number of intermediate techniques for doing antique radio restoration including schematic reading, signal tracing, RF alignment and more. The techniques are illustrated on a number of different radio restoration projects. You do not need to have seen Volume 1 to enjoy Volume 2.
