The February 13, 2017 meeting was to feature:

Erick Norris WD6DBM

Regretably he was called out of town - and will be rescheduled.

Thanks, Don - AE6PM for presenting Antenna Modelling


Erick was to speak about QRP PORTABLE OPERATING. Eric is a life-long resident of Santa Clara County and has been a ham since 1972.

His primary interests are CW rag chewing mostly on 40M, moon bounce on 2M, meteor scatter on 6M, and QRP portable operation.

Sometimes he also uses PSK31, RTTY, and SSTV. On VHF he uses WSJT.

If you have been lucky enough to see Eric's presentations on MOON BOUNCE and on MAGNETIC LOOP ANTENNAS, you

will want to mark your calendar for the second Monday in February - THE SCCARA MEETING to see Eric's third presentation.

Hope to see you there!

From our February 14, 2011 Regular meeting The February SCCARA meeting featured Rich Harrington, WA6GJF Now KN6FW, speaking on T Hunting.

As his first call suggests Rich has been at this since 1962. Rich got part of his T-Hunting skills in the US Navy where it is a serious business.

Rich is now retired from Pacific Bell so he can devote his time to designing, building, and using DF equipment.
