Next Meeting

September 3 @ 7:30PM


> D-STAR with John Davis, WB4QDX and Bert Bruner, KE4FOV

Bert is the ARC's D-STAR Committee Chairman. He will talk about the basics of D-STAR, and John, a nationally known D-STAR expert, will discuss some of D-STAR's finer points.

Bert and John will have a lot of interesting info to share with us.

If you have any advance questions, please send them to Bert at DSTAR@AtlantaRadioClub.


Beginning with this meeting, we will no longer be giving small prizes away as door prizes. There will be one door prize each month — a gift certificate for at least $25.

Members can bring items for sale, trade or to be given away for free. You'll announce your items during the meeting then do the trades and such after the meeting.

The Atlanta Radio Club thanks Ham Radio Outlet for partially funding our gift certificates.
