Thank you, Peter VE7AB

18 Apr

Peter Driessen VE7AB gave a very informative presentation titled Software Defined Radio at Tuesday’s WARA member meeting. Approximately 33 members and guests took in a wealth of information not only on SDR but also different pieces of hardware and different types of software to help with contesting and DXing.

My photos are not the best but they will give you an idea how many members are starting to enjoy these meetings.

Roger Graves VE7VV – an excellent presentation

Thank you, Roger, for your excellent presentation – Operating on 630-metres. Why? and How? The WARA members (about 28) who attended thoroughly enjoyed the numerous slides and the facts which you had researched.

It was informative with the early history of wireless on the BC west coast both on land and on sea. Your technical presentation, which included data and SSTV transmissions to and from other BC radio amateurs in Vancouver, was superb.
