We are counting on you for the program for the October UARC meeting, at least
if you have been doing some building of your own equipment in the last year. October's
meeting is “Homebrew Night,” the night when hams have the opportunity to show off the
transmitters, keyers, power supplies, antennas, and other things they have made to become
part of their amateur radio stations (home, portable, or mobile). Anything that can
be used in amateur radio and hasn't been shown at a previous UARC Homebrew Night is
fair game to show.
As with recent meetings, we will stream a Zoom meeting to
YouTube so that anyone can watch — and participate via the YouTube
chat, but for the homebrew meeting we have something slightly
different in mind for those who have projects to present.
Here's what we are asking:
- If you have an amateur radio related homebrew project — or
something that you think you can convince us is ham-related —
please let us know about it RIGHT NOW. You can
contact any of the UARC officers, or email your idea/details
- You do not need to be a member of the Utah Amateur Radio club
- What we are looking for is pictures of your project. These
can be in the form of individual photos, a Power Point, LibreOffice
or PDF presentation. The photos may be emailed to us
using the firstname.lastname@example.org
address if you like: If you don't have a presentation at the
ready, that's OK — just let us know at that address what your
project is all about.
- If you wish to make a video about your project, that's OK too
— just try to keep the motion to a minimum (as little
panning as possible, avoid a shaky camera) so that the
Zoom stream can present the video as clearly as possible. If
you are doing a video, please contact us well
ahead of time as a file that size cannot be emailed.
How it will be presented:
- Those who have let us know beforehand about their project will
be invited to participate in the actual Zoom session where you
may narrate your photos. Because not everyone knows how to use
Zoom, one of the board members will be presenting the photos
while you, the owner of the project, can explain
what it is that you have done. If you have a video, a similar
thing will be done.
- If you are on the Zoom session — and the project is pretty
simple — simply putting it on camera may work: Again, let us
know what you have in mind.
- If you do NOT wish to participate on the Zoom
session — or simply can't get on Zoom for whatever reason, we
would be happy to present your project for you.. In that case,
please include enough explanatory text with your pictures to
convey the best details of your project.
We are asking that you propose your project to us by the end of
the day on Monday, September 28, 2020. From there, we will get
back to you to work out the details on how might be the best way
to do your presentation.
We hope to see you — and your project — in October!
For those who plan, simply, to observe, the meeting will begin at the normal UARC
meeting time of 7:30 P.M. We will try to have the stream going by 7 P.M. to work out any
technical problems. It's a good idea to connect a little early to make sure everything
is working on your end and UARC's. Point your browser at
and look for the live feed. For more detailed information see
