Next Meeting General Club Night 17 January 2018 at 1900
:
 
This should be a very exciting meeting.  Ron has prepared a video of a flght in a SPITFIRE.  The video will be about fourty minutes long and will be followed with a question and answer session about all aspects of avionics.   This is a meeting not to be missed.  See you all then.

First Construction Meeting Of The Year: 
This was a well attended meeting which broke into three parts. Ron took the candidates for the foundation course. Simon led a group which was diagnosing and repairing a radio brought in by Gary. This proved to be a good way to learn fault finding. We traced the problem to a faulty relay which was isolating the audio section when the PTT was released. Antony Ron and Brian and James discussed the approaches which we will take to produce a talking front end for a radio which will also accept voice command. Various methods were discussed on how to design this around an Arduino. Other possibilities were to use an Amazon Alexa to accept the voice commands with a Raspberry Pi to control the radio.  Photos of the members at work are in the cube above.


We are very sad to report the death of Geoff Stratford 2EOUKG  who was a member of the society for many years.  Our condolences to his family at this very sad time.            

Foundation Course: 
We will be running a Foundation Course Starting January 22nd.  See the Calendar section for further details.
Shack Pictures here
We have started the shacks section with pictures from Philip and Pete.  In view of the security questions raised by John G8OXZ we are only identifying them by the first name of the owner.  Hopefully this will make you more confident about sending pictures.  Please let us have some more shack pictures.

There will be the usual Thursday evening net on 144.515 FM relayed on 432.525 FM at 1930. Look forward to hearing from you all.
