SJCARS Monthly Meeting
Friday, July 10, 2020, 11:30 am, 
Online Meeting
Dear SCJARS Members and Friends, 

Our next monthly meeting will be on Friday July 10, 2020, at 11:30 am. Due to current travel restrictions and social distancing requirements, we will be conducting a virtual meeting, via Zoom Meeting. You may join the meeting via computer, mobile phone, or landline phone. (Details below.) 

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

On the agenda for this month: Field Day reports, website update, future club meetings and events outlook.

This month’s feature presentation is titled: “Racing Balloons on the APRS Network,” by Trevor Macduff KJ7OMJ. Treveor, and Steve Potter, K7HAK, fielded a team from Pasco, Washington, and will share their experience participating in the recently completed ARISS Mid-Altitude Balloon Race. They are also prepared to take on all questions, from organizational, to technical, to scholastic, and beyond. What are you curious about regarding a space station-affilliated cross-country radio-tracked balloon race launched by schools?  Be ready to ask!

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 June 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, July 10th:
