Holiday Meeting - Winners !!

What a great bunch of Hams we have in the SEKARC club. We had our holiday meeting today and our last meeting for 2013, but it was a great day and it has been a great year. We had the usual members there, and a couple of new friends. Lee / KDØOCY, the son of member Loren KDØRTX who came down from Peculiar, MO and we also had Steve N5SD and his wife pop in and say hello!

Most of us...

Everyone left with a door prize ( donated by our friend at Associated Radio ) and we had a couple of Grand Prizes that were drawn as well.  Steve / WDØDTS won a set of magnifying viewers and the big prize went to Jack WDØCFH who won the AAØZZ EZKeyer kit which was donated by the 4States QRP group. Their website is a great source for QRP kits of all kinds. And when you buy one, bring it to the regular builders group meetings! ( See the Builders Group tab above ).

Thanks to Four States QRP
We even had an interesting model brought in by Jack. He has made a full scale model of the QubeSat radio satellite which was recently launched into orbit and is being programmed now. Say tuned for a write up on that after I do some research. It was fascinating to see it and to know that it was full scale ( about 5" cube with antenna radials coming out of 4 sides ). Thanks for making that Jack and as contacts are made, we will try to keep everyone updated on how they working.

Thanks for all that were able to attend and a special thanks go to another special guest ( Tom's son ) for helping pull the lucky winners out of the hat! Stay tuned to the website here for new updates and information. Our next meeting will be January 25, 2014. Thanks again to all of the club members for a great 2013 and I hope we all look for an even better 2014!

Excellent Young Ticket Picker !
