October 14 On-Line Meeting: Home Brew Night
The coming UARC meeting will be the annual Homebrew Night, a chance for folks who have built equipment on their own to show off the finished product and possiibly inspire others to do homebrew projects of their own.
In the olden days meant,almost certainly, a transmitter, but now the field is wider than ever and may include antennas, electronic keyers, power supplies, band converters, antenna tuners, SWR bridges, and accessories that no one else has thought of before.
With Covent cases on the rise, the UARC Board has decided to continue having the meetings on-line. You can have ready-to-show on-line things like pictures, schematics, physical plans, and even results in lists of stations worked and logged. You might want to check with our Zoom Guru, Clint Turner, KA7OEI, firstname.lastname@example.org prior to the meeting to see what formats might be the most effective. (See below.)
The meeting will be on Thursday, Octobere 14, and will, again, be an on-line meeting. It can be accessed (along with several past meeting programs) by going to: https://www.youtube.com/c/UtahAmateurRadioClub and looking for the video marked “live.”
You can start watching soon after 7 P.M. to make sure you have found the right place. The meeting will start at 7:30.
If you are planning to present:
- Everyone planning to show something should contact a club officer well ahead of time at: email@example.com. Those presenting homebrew projects can be accommodated in several ways:
- You can present your project(s) by sharing them on Zoom using your local cameras and computers.
- If you don’t wish to do the photo presentation on Zoom (that is,
you aren't a Zoom “power user” and aren't comfortable doing so) you
can forward photos/videos to the above email address and have one of
the UARC officers present the photos/videos while you talk over them.
- If you have a video to show, you may present it in one of several ways:
- Put it on YouTube and provide the UARC folks a link so that it may be played. (It takes special configuration of Zoom –– and a rather powerful processor –– to “show” videos via Zoom.)
- Send the video file (or a link to it). The use of Google or Dropbox is suggested –– or any other way to make a large file like that, which is probably too big to be emailed –– to allow it to be downloaded for the presentation, and to later be incorporated in the edited video that will be posted on YouTube.
Except for July and August, UARC meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 P.M.
