We will be holding our final meeting of the semester on Thursday at 5 PM in EME 206. The next meeting will be January 20th.
Topics we will cover:
1. Next semester's activities
2. Updating tower proposal for final approval
3. Tower fund-raising plan
Come if you are interested in participating in the club activities next semester as we will be brainstorming ideas during this meeting. If you can't make it please email the list with your ideas.
Our second activity meeting will cover building antennas. We will be building a 2m/440 stacked J-Pole. This will be a two hour meeting. If you are interested in taking an antenna home, please email email@example.com. This meeting will be in EME 130.
Our club meetings will be the first and third Thursday of the month at 5:00 PM. The location will be EME 206 (the AI lab, directly across the hall from our shack) unless specified otherwise.
The results are in for last Feburary's School Club Roundup, and W7YH placed 5th in the nation! Not bad for our first try for a contest from our on-campus station, espicially as noise-limited as we were!
Its been a while since an update was posted, but things HAVE been happening (albet slowly)!
We have received FAA approval for both of our two top choices (Observatory Hill and Soil Storage). We have received support from EECS in the form of a "failover owner" should the club go dark (something that Capital Planning would want to see).
What's next? We need to get Capital Planning's approval for the site, then start working on donations in ernest.
We will be having a planning / officers meeting Thursday at 5pm in EME206. Anyone is welcome to attend. The purpose is to discuss current logistics and plan our foci for the semester.
We had an antenna system donated to the club. The stipulation is that it's attached to a tower and we need to remove it. We're planning to remove the antennas this weekend.There will be two days of work to make sure everything gets done:Saturday the 16th at 11amMonday the 18th at 10amPlease check the mailing list for the address and directions.
Come check us out at the student involvement fair! We'll at least have VHF/UHF demos going, and possibly some other cool stuff. The fair will run 11:30am to 1:30pm on the Glenn Terrel Mall (in front of Holland Library and CUB) on WSU campus.
The next exam session will be on Sunday February 28th at 3 PM in ETRL 119. The exam costs $15, the standard ARRL Test Fee.
