STEMpede: I think everyone has heard of the
STEM program by now.. It covers most of the phyics we had in school.. The
Scouts will have a great opportunity to have some practical practice with a lot
of things in science and math. We hope to be able to provide some of those
points with radio technology on Oct. 8th. This will be our 6th time
(counting the STEM pocket patches )
For the October and the November meetings, the meetings
will be held on the second floor of The
Brick House. 500 Grant Street, W.De Pere. This meeting is a very important
one with the nominations of those to be on the next year’s Executive Board.
This is the first of the nominations. Be sure to read the minutes of the last
meeting to catch
up on what else may come up for
Nominations will continue at the
November Annual Corporation Meeting followed by the Election of the Board. Any
proposed ByLaw changes will be voted on
Oct. 15th Scouting Jamboree On The Air… J.O.T.A. Modern
technology offers Scouts the exciting opportunity to make friends in other
countries without leaving home. JOTA is an annual event in which Boy and Girl
Scouts and Guides from all over the world speak to each other by means of
Amateur (ham) Radio.
There used to
be a conflict in years past with the Scouts Food Drive on the same day.. Not
this year… so we are anticipating a good turn out. Hope to have about 6 or 8 of
us plus a couple or three stations (Hint- bring
radios) The American Legion, 1708 N Irwin Ave. will be our location this year.
If you have some time, stop by and give a hand or information.. 9am to
In 2014, over 1.3 million Scouts, Guides/Girl Scouts
participated in JOTA..
A new year is coming up and time to get involved and enjoy the hobby with others of similar mind..
The Club consists of those that experiment with radio transmitters, beacons, satellites, antenni or enjoy contesting, collecting countries, counties. Plus we have operators that enjoy mentoring newbies and provide training…
Are you a member of the Mike & Key Club? Now is a good time to join or continue your membership … go to the K9EAM.ORG web site… fill out a membership form..you can find the link on the righthand side of the site .. dues are due now to December.

Things that we have historically scheduled:
October: Nomination of Board members and Plan Christmas Party: JOTA (Jamboree on the Air)
November : Annual Meeting – Elect Board Members **Just to note that it was suggested in Sept. that the Board choose their officer positions after the election rather than wait until Dec. **
December: Christmas Party – Officers positions chosen.
Winter Field Day..
January: Set up chairpersons for : 1.Wis. QSO party. 2. Banquet 3. Hamfest. 4. Brat Barn. 4. Field Day. 5. Picnic.
A little science as we get ready for STEM..
to science lore, Galileo dropped two balls from the Leaning Tower of Pisa. In
fact, it seems unlikely that Galileo actually carried out this experiment. But
he supposedly was trying to show that those balls would fall with the same
acceleration. Their change in speed due to gravity would be the same, no matter
what they were made from or how much they weighed.---- Einstein’s equivalence
principle holds that this inertial mass is equal to the gravitational mass. And
if that’s true, then two different objects should fall at the same rate (at
least when they’re in a vacuum, where air resistance is eliminated). In a
perfect vacuum, for instance, a feather will accelerate just as much as will a
ball of iron.
Scientists have now performed a similar
experiment in a satellite. They dropped two hollow cylinders and measured them
for more than 120 orbits. The cylinders were in free fall for about eight days’
worth of time.
the satellite experiment, the two cylinders’ accelerations did match — at least
to within two-trillionths of one percent!
the way, one cylinder was made of platinum alloy and the other from titanium.
