We had our monthly meeting for the Stockton Delta Amateur Radio Club on February 8, 2018 at 7:30pm. After usual club announcement and business, we were treated to a presentation by Jim WB6BET of the Lodi Amateur Radio Club (LARC): The History of Phonetics.
Jim went on to describe DX phonetics.
Emilia KI6YYT, president of LARC, also gave a presentation on the USS Hornet, describing its radio systems and an all-women’s QSO event they held there last year. It was interesting to see the kinds of radios they used on ships back then (one slide had a bank of Harris RF-350s).
It’s cool that the club meetings are not only a chance to place faces with callsigns, but that each one has some educational aspect in mind. SDARC really has a goal of helping the ham community learn more and make an impact.
