SJCARS Monthly Meeting
Friday, April 10, 2020, 11:30 am, 
Online Meeting

Dear SCJARS Members and Friends, 

Our next monthly meeting will be on Friday April 10, 2020, at 11:30 am. Due to the current global COVID-19 pandemic, we will be conducting a virtual meeting, via Zoom Meeting. You may join the meeting via computer, mobile phone, or landline phone. (Details below.) 

Please plan on participating! When joining, please connect to the meeting a few minutes before 11:30, so we can begin promptly. 

Enjoying the possibilities offered through the magic of the internet, I am pleased to announce Ward Silver N0AX, will be able to join us!  Ward will give us an introduction to the YASME Foundation, a non-profit with an emphasis on developing amateur radio in emerging countries and encouraging youth participation in amateur radio. I hope, too, we can get a little Missouri perspective on the state of ham radio and the world. 

Our second feature presentation is titled: “A mildly technical exploration of antenna tuners,” and will be given by our very own, always special guest(!), Dan N6AU.  In this, we will learn why do we need them? what are they? how do they work? analog vs. digital, limitations, and last but not least, how to read the ads. 

I, for one, am very excited about this month’s lineup!   

Also on the agenda for this month: D-Star Gateway Update; calendar updates and future club meetings outlook. 

Finally, we will also have our regular club meeting topics, including meeting minute approval, treasury report, committee reports, and of course, “Stories from your Shack.”

The phenomenal (Yes, really!) March minutes are posted at sjcars.org.

If you have not used Zoom before, this is a great chance to experience it.  No account or registration is necessary. However, I would encourage everyone to visit zoom.us beforehand, setup a free account, make sure your computer is configured properly for a web meeting, and view a brief tutorial. I suspect we will all continue to make increased use of this and similar tools in the months ahead. If you choose to use a smartphone or tablet, you can install the free “Zoom Cloud Meeting” app.
Set your reminder to sign in at 11:20 or 11:25 am PST, Friday,April 10th:
