September’s RCR meeting which will be held at our usual meeting place, Panera Bread, 17262 Redmond Way, Redmond (Panera Bread map link). As always, we will kick off the meeting at 8 AM, but I would encourage you to get there early for some great conversation with a large group of members who begin to gather shortly after 7 AM.
Here is the write up provided by our Program Chairman Paul Lemson, W9PL:
From Oct. 2 through Oct. 14, Grant KZ1W and Rob N7QT captured the attention of DXers worldwide with their very successful TX5D operation from Raivavae in the Austral Islands. Grant will share a video and slide presentation with us at our meeting on Nov. 16 while Rob is on the air at Saba on another DXpediton and adding to his DXpedition scorecard.
Grant will share highlights of their strategy, planned and unplanned adventures and days and nights without much sleep which enabled them to make over 18,600 QSOs and provide a “new one” on one or more bands to many of the Deserving DXers! Don’t miss this very entertaining and informative program!
For the Around-the-Table discussion, everyone should also prepare to discuss their recent contesting, DX and other activities as well as any plans for the upcoming contests or other interesting amateur radio experiences (we might get to hear from W7QC about his tower catastrophe during the wind storm). And with band conditions being so good recently, especially on 12 and 10 meters, there should be a lot to talk about.
I look forward to seeing you this Saturday.
