The next meeting will be on Friday, November 11th at 19:00 at the Naka-Meguro Juku Center Meeting Room #1 (map). Note this is the second Friday of the month, and at a different venue than usual.
The meeting will feature a presentation by George Ross, shortwave champion of Trans World Radio (TWR), and Mike Sabin NH2MS, a missionary serving as the chief engineer at shortwave broadcaster KTWR on Guam. They plan to bring along a Titus II, a low cost DRM receiver made possible by Android and SDR technologies. Here is a chance to learn about a new way of making a commercial receiver, and the challenges of modern shortwave broadcasters.
The Tokyo International Amateur Radio Association (TIARA) holds monthly meetings in English usually in Jiyugaoka, Tokyo. Jiyugaoka is just a few minutes from Shibuya on the Tokyu Toyoko Line, or from Oimachi on the Tokyu Oimachi Line. Meetings are held on the third Friday of most months except August (Field Day & Ham Fair) and December (Christmas Party). The meetings are open not only to members, but other English-speaking hams and foreigners residing in or visiting Japan interested in amateur radio.
TIARA members gather on 21.320 MHz at 1000 JST (0100Z) most Sundays for an informal chat. Join us! You can also participate by connecting to the TIARA VoIP network.
