Sept, Oct, Nov Meetings

During our last three meetings... November, we talked about Go Cases and planned on making Go Cases over the next few months. Anyone interested can build one and teh club is happy to help in any way possible. October, we discussed the repeater and whether we should continue having the reapeater on Fusion digital or analog. We also saw a presentation on stealth and clandestine antennas. September, we discussed the importance of Emcomm/ARES and listened to an argument against these services. We also discussed SWR and how it affects radio transceivers.
