October 6th Meeting will not be held
During the last meeting the membership voted to replace the Christmas Dinner with an October picnic. Similarly to the way we replace the second meeting with the Christmas Dinner, the picnic will replace the first meeting. More information will soon be emailed and posted.

Some fun with APRS

I've been using the recent downtime to finally start finishing some of the many projects laying around the shack as well as taking time to go over the manuals for my rigs. I picked up an FT1D a few years back when we started to purchase the Fusion machines but have never had the chance to use many of it's features. One of the things that pulled me towards that radio at the time was the integrated APRS.
