    Practical time again

    In the clubroom, come try out your frequency meter. Jack will bring his off air standard. Make sure you arrive in good time to let your meter stabilise as most take some time to warm up.

    Meanwhile, outside - assuming the weather is good - it's practice time. In June there will be a 2 metre walking DF hunt around the village so some and make sure your kit works in the car park.

    Oh, and as usual, get some practice in in the shack

    Ok - it's DF hunt time again

    As per last time, we'll be hiding in Grappenhall. Come and find us. Two stations, same channel, 2 metres.

    Lessons learnt from last time

    1. close in on foot the signals can be large - attenuators help. Will drop the power down more after 30 minutes
    2. we should probably pick a quieter frequency - will announce that at 8pm in 145.450 - we'll either be there or will announce a change in frequency

    To be confirmed yet.

    Ron asked could we have another go at meter measurement - and this time he's offered to tabulate all the results trying to check each range...

    Also, we'll try to organise the solder hands on session (well, metaphorically speaking)
