Show and tell meeting

The November meeting was informal with mostly socialising and a bit of show and tell. Graeme, VK3NE, brought along a very nicely made WSPR transmitter using an early Raspberry Pi with a low pass filter for two (really three) bands.

Peter, VK3TPM, brought along a Quansheng UV-K5. It’s a decent successor to the low cost Baofeng UV-5R but it features USB-C charging (unfortunately not USB programming) and more significantly optional firmware that enables new features. It can be re-flashed from a web interface directly over a Baofeng serial cable.

The committee discussed plans for the Christmas meeting which will again be catered for and the January picnic to be held in the park on Mount Macedon.

Once again we invite partners to come along to the picnic in January.
