Early March Meeting start

The March Meeting will start at 6:45 PM. This is so we can get the preliminaries out of the way before the presentation from
Bioenno Battery., which will last for 40 ~ 45 mins.

Shack Open Saturday!

I expect to be at the club station tomorrow morning between 8 and 11.
I will be trying out my SDR receiver and maybe some 2 meter SSB.
As always if I can help with your ham radio hobby just come on up!

We are collecting used Android phones or tablets for use with various amateur radio projects. Do you have an Android phone/tablet that works, but you no longer use? We are interested! Even if it has a cracked screen… we may still be able to make use of it.

If you have an Android based phone or tablet, please send us an email at phones@cvara.net to get more info or schedule a meetup with a member or you can drop by one of our Tech Nights!

**Devices will be wiped of personal data and reset to defaults. We are only looking to use them with Android applications and wifi. No cell service is required.
