LARC Program for 7:30 PM, Wednesday, October 8, 2014, at LI-COR, 4647 Superior, Lincoln, NE

Mobile Installation 101

         Do you plan on setting up a 2-meter and/or 70-cm mobile rig?  Come to this Club meeting for tips and techniques on how to do it.  Bryan Leavitt, WØBCL, will take you through the steps and will provide ideas that will help you with the installation process.

        Also, the Club is in the process of standardizing memory channels and frequencies for the 2-meter and 70-cm bands.  This is important especially for emergency communications and will allow hams to rapidly change frequencies by going to predetermined memory locations. 

        A list of the frequencies / memory locations will be available at the October meeting, and the Club will have computers available for programming the most common HT radios with the standardized settings.  So bring your handhelds to the Club meeting and get them programmed with new settings.

     —Bryan Leavitt, WØBCL
Whether or not you have earned an Amateur Radio License, and whether or not you are an LARC member, you will find this program interesting.  All are welcome!
