For this month only, the meeting will be held in Conference Rooms A, B, & C next to Bessie Meyers Auditorium on the first floor of the Mary Greeley Medical Center. The closest parking is in the lot north of the Emergency Room. A map will be sent in the announcement to anyone on the SCARC or the CARC mail lists. Others wanting a pdf map, please send email to Clint, KCØJUO [isuforester@hotmail.com].
The program for the meeting will have three components. Clint, KCØJUO will first present and provide a demonstration of the unique radio setup at MGMC, including the remote operating position using RemoteRigs.
Clint's presentation will be followed by a presentation on the ARRL Log Book of the World (LOTW) by K0KT and a presentation on eQSL by KN0R. These are modern Internet-based methods of confirming QSO for different awards, which are beginning to supplement or replace the increasingly expensive regular paper QSLs that are exchanged via regular mail.
