January meeting with special guest Bob Heil

If you missed our January meeting with the legendary Bob Heil presenting to the Jefferson County Amateur Radio Club via Zoom. Bob’s presentation was a blend of history, technology, and the art of amateur radio delivered in a way that only Bob Heil can. This was Bob’s 265th presentation since February 2020!.  Bob planned a custom presentation that not only included a brief history of his extensive ham radio career AND his Hall of Fame audio engineer career, but will included topics on “Understanding Audio Equalization,” “How to Properly Adjust Your Radio,” and everyone’s favorite – “ANTENNAS, ANTENNAS, ANTENNAS.”

A word on the 147.105 repeater from our club president N0HKK

I am very happy to announce that we finally got the Openspot working for the 147.105 and all of the repeaters linked via WiresX on our System. With this, you can now talk from anywhere in the world even if mobile as long as you have internet, a hotspot and radio with Fusion, DMR, D-star, etc. you need to set your hotspot for FCS and select the server/room to 003 room 091 STL-Metro.


Formal Traffic on Nets

On Monday April 27th on the 147.075 weekly 8 pm practice net we had someone pass Formal Traffic, and nobody seemed to be familiar with it. It is not particularly common anymore, but it is good to know how to do it. It is sort of an Amateur Radio Telegram that is passed through networks until it gets to it’s destination.

For more information please go to the ARRL article below
