LI-COR

Last spring Doc Chaves spoke at a LARC meeting about “what” LI-COR does. Rex Peterson, AEØRP, is going to talk about “how” things are done along with the technical side of the instruments.

Technician Class Starting

Do you know someone who wants to get their ham radio license? The time is now! The Lincoln Amateur Radio Club is putting on a FREE six-week course for the Technician License! Courses begin Wednesday, September 19, 2018, at 6:30 pm. Each class will run until 9:30 pm.

For the class, you may choose to purchase a book, and we will be teaching from the ARRL’s Ham Radio License Manual, 4th Edition. Please note, if you purchase the book online, be sure you’re purchasing the 4th Edition, as it covers the test questions that came into effect in July of this year.

The course will be taught by Justin Williamson, W5NEB, and Bryan Leavitt, WØBCL.

The class will meet in Room 130 of Kruger Hall at Union College. Free parking is available.

We look forward to seeing you there!

Please RSVP to w5neb@arrl.net.

6 meters

Have you operated on 6 meters? Do you know why we call it “The Magic Band”? I’ll present at the September club meeting about antennas, the band plan, CW, SSB, and possibly a little FT8 or other digital modes. I will touch on band opening indicators, grid squares, contests, and online chat sites where you can see the band open right before your eyes. I’m excited to show you why I like 6 meters. ~ Ed Holloway, KØRPT
