October Meeting: Homebrew Night

Is Homebrew — i.e. the art of building your own equipment — a dead art? We hope not because the October meeting program is all about it. Thursday, October 10, is Homebrew Night where hams will be showing off the equipment they have built themselves. There are lots of things that are practical for hams to build themselves including power supplies, high-power amplifiers, speech processors, keyers, and transmitters and receivers for the 630- and 2200-meter bands.

At the upcoming meeting, hams will be welcome display anything they have built themselves and give short talks about what their items do, how they was built, and what their features are. Items should not be ones that have been shown at previous UARC Homebrew nights, unless they have been modified for better performance or new features since the last showing at a UARC meeting. There will be some awards for those that show their projects.

The meeting will be Thursday, October 10, at 7:30 P.M., in room 1230 of the Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus. If items such antennas are not practical to bring in to show, bring enough photos and/or diagrams to give us a good understanding of what the item is and how it works and performs. We will have a projector available that will accept either VGA or HTML video, and likely a computer that can show various formats.

Except for July and August, UARC meetings are held on the second Thursday of each month at 7:30 P.M., in the Warnock Engineering Building on the University of Utah campus.

See the map for information on finding the building. The room number varies depending on availability.

Of course, the meeting will include the “standard” meeting features:

  • Availability of ARRL books from Rick, the bookseller
  • An opportunity to join UARC or renew your membership
  • An opportunity to join ARRL or renew your membership
  • The chance to meet face-to-face the people you talk to on the air
  • The “Meeting after the meeting”: A chance to enjoy pizza or other gastronomic delights with other hams. It happens at Litza's Pizza, 716 E. 400 South.
  • The “Meeting before the meeting”: A similar get-together for those who can leave work early enough to get there by 5:15 P.M. These are held at “The Village Inn,” 910 E. 400 South.
