Our February meeting will feature a web-based presentation by Mr. Michael Walker (VA3MW) from FlexRadio. Mike has been a ham since 1974. He has worked on computers with 64,000 tubes in them that were part of IBM/Norad. He enjoys DX, contesting meteor scatter etc. He enjoys working on station integration, making things work automatically. Technology is his hobby! Topics include:
- Talk about the SDR radio and the Flex implementation and how Flex leveraged it.
- How it is designed for simple and easy station integration
- Remoting of your HF radio for either your friends to share or a more detailed station that is 100% remote
- Product overview of the models
