July 16 Program: The Digital Revolution - FT8
In this period of few or no sunspots and even less propagation, there
has been one saving grace. Even in conditions where everything seems
to be in the noise, there are QSOs taking place and contacts being made.
This is due to the digital mode FT8. It was widely used for the last
Field Day and still seems to be getting new converts.
Dan, KR4UB, will present Tuesday's program with an introduction to FT8.
Don't miss it! 73, Dee, KU4GC, 7/13/19

NO DFMA MEETING UNTIL JULY 16th
Bullock's always closes two weeks for the 4th of July holiday. So our
meeting will not be held until the 3rd Tuesday: July 16. Since this
is the time slot for the DFMA Board Meeting, any urgent Board business
will be dealt with at that time.
As of this time, no program has been set. A reminder with program
information will be sent out the week before the meeting.
