This month’s meeting was held as usual at the Medical Alumni. There was a Council Meeting at 630 pm, and therefore all the council members were at the conference room before any members arrived. The meeting commenced at 810 pm.
There were quite a few visitors this month, some not new.
Roland Turner of Hackerspace.
Kevin, who works in the aerospace industry.
James Rivett-Carmac, a software engineer who is interested in radios in space.
The Incoming QSL manager distributed the received QSLs
Takashi 9V1DR with his QSL cards just received. Takashi thanked the society and friends for the friendship and said that he would be leaving Singapore soon, on posting to Taiwan.
John 9V1VV and his QSLs. John works mainly in CW.
Takata-san 9V1JA, happy with the newly arrived QSL cards.
Kurita-san 9V1XX, our outgoing QSL manager with his stack of received QSLs.
After the break, Royce 9V1AN gave a talk on
“Echolink – interfacing, demonstration and possibilities”
This was followed by a hands-on where members used their handies tuned to
145.500 MHz and communicated over the link to a few hams, one of whom is
an old friend Sakai Shiro 9V1PW, who has returned to Japan. It was
nice to hear him again.
We all enjoyed the camaraderie and many hams stayed back to eyeball after the talk.
See you next month!
