The Nashoba Valley Amateur Radio Club’s June meeting is Thursday, June 17th at 7:30 PM. This meeting will be conducted via ZOOM. Meeting details are below. Thanks to Jim Hein, N8VIM, and Medtronics for the Zoom conference.

We’re very pleased to announce the speaker: Mindy Hull KM1NDY, whose topic is portable operations. 

Summary: Portable radio operation is becoming an increasingly prominent pursuit of amateur hobbyists, made practical by the advent and availability of lightweight batteries. Structured programs such as Parks-On-The-Air (POTA) and Summits-On-The-Air (SOTA) provide enticing opportunities for hams to get outdoors. While experienced hams may have plenty of technical radio experience, portable radio requires an intersection with the skills of the outdoorist. This talk focuses on gear choices (both radio and outdoor), portable op strategies, and a bit of philosophy to hopefully give you all the information needed to get out there and do it yourself!

We’ll also have a rundown on the club’s Field Day plans.

Thanks and 73. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
