Hello NTMS


Looking forward to a fun meeting this Saturday. We will review the activities on the Microwave contest last month and discuss plans for the next round. The next round of the Microwave contest is a week from Saturday 9/16/17 and runs through the weekend.

We will also have an update on Greg's frequency synthesizer, Discussions on 10 GHz transverter kits, and other topics.

The meeting will be held at St.Barnabas Presbyterian Church at 1220 W. Belt Line Rd, in Richardson. We plan to be getting started at 12 noon with general informal discussions. Its always a lot of fun so make plans to attend.

73,

Weekly Net

Hello NTMS

The club hosts a weekly Sunday night NTMS NET at 8PM local DFW time on 144.260 MHz. Since the ARRL suggests this frequency as a US coordination frequency during contest events such as the ARRL 10 GHz and above contest, it makes sense to use this frequency for daily microwave related chit chat, sked coordination, NET operation and our operating events.

Thanks to K5ZSJ, N5PGH, and W5RLG for running the NTMS NET for the last several years.

Please aim your antennas towards the Plano, Texas EM13 area on Sunday nights.
