Radio Happenings 3.22.24


  Our little stick man is really active today... But then again, so is  the Green Bay Mike & Key Club... As a member, you can and should be too... !!  Many of us have studied long and hard to achieve the FCC license and we had a goal to why we did... Many, be able to operate the radio during events to support our community. This is a great goal!! But we must stay active to be good at it. Take advantage of the opportunity to get on the air... even if it is not our own equipment... being with someone that has the radio is willing to have you operate.. As you have read the schedule in each of our newsletters or on the Website, you will see the chances to be active..  

   You have questions on where and when, don't be afraid to ask...or some question about a certain radio and how to work with rig control.. As a club, we join together to help and to get help.. as Red Green said "We're all in this together"

   Before we look ahead, let's see what has happened recently:
   Club meeting:// Once again there was a full house with more new folks joining in.. The reports of the committees showed we are on the fast track for the Ham Cram, Special Event, the Brat Barns, Field Day, The Marathon - Check our schedule for the times and dates .... 
    Wisconsin QSO Party:: Wes Michael and Dave Catalano activated the Club Shack at St. Norbert.. Everything worked well ... The last hour the pipeline opened up and had a hard time keeping up the log.. It was fun.. If you never had that experience yet.. you will really enjoy it.. If you are at Tech.. please take the opportunity to get on HF at one of the club events... ..

    Banquet :: We had a lot of fun at the banquet! The food was delicious, the service was great, and there were plenty of door prizes. The highlight of the evening was honoring several members who were nominated for The Ham of The Year award. Wes, W9WES; Keith,KS9WI; and Gene, AB9GK as well as the Ham of The Year winner, Larry, K9IQ. We also honored Dave, N8KQS for his outstanding work on the club newsletter. All of the members who were recognized have made significant contributions to our club. In particular Larry was singled out for his excellence in upgrading the Club Hamshack, his work as Field Day Safety Officer, and his sincere willingness to assist other Amateurs. Be sure to congratulate these gentlemen at your next opportunity.
         It was a pleasure to honor our past president Paul, KB0P at the March meeting. As most of you know, Paul served as our leader for two terms. His energetic willingness and drive were critical factors in the great success of our Hamfests, Field Days, social events, Brat Barns, and monthly meetings. Paul’s style and easy-going manner increased member enthusiasm and contributed to the overall growth of our club.
    We had a very interesting Tech Talk at our March meeting. Mike, WD9EGE explained the procedures and the equipment associated with operating on 23cm, 10GHz, and above. A came away knowing there at the conclusion of his demonstration, show-and-tell, and informative briefing, I’s a lot more to it than we experience on 2-meters. Good show Mike!
The next club meeting is April 11 and our Tech Talk will be presented by Todd, W9GRB. His topic will be Winlink. Don’t miss it!
Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions about our club.
