Greetings, MARC Members and Friends of MARC!
Once again the time has come for our monthly meeting. This month, we will have Dan (N7XDL) teaching us about Faraday Cages, Protecting Your Equipment from CME and EMP. If you attended last week's meeting, you'll have learned about how deadly to electronics CME and EMP events can be. This week, you'll find out what you can do to mitigate these problems!
The meeting will be at Murray Fire Station #81, located at 4848 S Box Elder St (35 W), at 6:30 PM in the community room. *NOTE: the fire department has an event between 5:00 and 6:00 PM*... they should be done and cleared out by 6:30 but you might have trouble finding a parking spot if you tend to arrive early. Don't panic!
We will have a brief check-in net prior to the meeting at 6:00 PM on 147.600 MHz simplex (no tone or offset), which is channel 31 in the Standard Load. Please join us if you can. These nets are to help us confirm that we can communicate even if the repeaters are down and to help us make sure we can program our equipment effectively. If you are having trouble programming your radio, bring it along and someone at the meeting will help you!
We will be sharing the meeting via Zoom, use the following link to join:
