Our regular March meeting will be at the same time, 09:30 tomorrow, 21 March. We meet on-the-air using the W5BCS repeater, 146.680. Their is a tone required on input, 88.5Hz but, no tone is transmitted. This is the same repeater we use for our Tuesday evening nets.
I’ll look forward to hearing you on the air!

Join us at C&J BBQ on the bend in Texas Avenue, Bryan, TX at 11:30. Go through the line and purchase some food and join us in their meeting room. We’ll have time to eat, fellowship and a brief business meeting. We’ll also make some time to talk a bit about the year to come.

Paul has additional experience with this if you have questions.
You probably need to be running this on a Raspberry Pi 4 because it is processor intensive.
The software is actually available through the normal raspbian installer. Click on Preferences–>Add/Remove software and search for GQRX.
Paul recommends the Nooelec tuners, such as the NESDR SMArt4 v4 because of their shielded aluminum cases and temperature-stabilized oscillators. Look around the site and check their specifications for a tuning range, etc. that meets your needs.
Thanks again to Paul Bilke for giving us some ideas.

Thanks to everyone who came out for our August meeting. Good attendance and lots of participation. The VE team was present beforehand to administer tests. I believe there was 100% pass rate consisting of two new Technicians, two Generals and, one Extra. We also recognized our outgoing club secretary, Matthew Barry. Matt has provided outstanding service to our club and we will miss him while he is away working on his new calling.
By an assent vote of club members in attendance, we also accepted Trent Owens as club secretary for the remaining time of this term. My thanks to both of these gentlemen as great examples of the volunteerism that makes this club successful.
