  • M.O.R.E Project gets some good P.R.!

    The MORE Project , to Make Amateur Radio Easier is a project co-sponsored by our club to add new interested hams to our ranks, especially underrepresented demographics, including women and younger enthusiasts. The project has had several groups going through the training classes, and spawning other to teach elsewhere.. or via the Internet.

    Rebecca Mercuri K3RPM, reports that one of our Technician class students, Nicole Kirch, wrote a great article about the MORE Project for the SoundGirls (women in Audio Engineering) website:

  • Steve Miller KD2DUL Silent Key

    The David Sarnoff Radio Club mourns the death of KD2DUL, Steven Miller, on April 25, 2022. Steve was a regular on our Tuesday evening nets, and an active volunteer with ARES.

    His obituary noted that Steve was an environmental scientist with a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania, but we knew him as an engaged club member and a friend. As it notes:

    “After retiring, Steve rediscovered his adolescent hobby of amateur radio. He was relicensed as KD2DUL and made new contacts near and far. He also served terms on the Princeton Environmental Commission and the Princeton Board of Health.”

    Our condolences go out to his wife of 32 years, Olga Boyko, and his children Pauline and Edward Miller.

    “A memorial service will be held at 2 pm on Saturday, May 7, 2022, at the Mather-Hodge Funeral Home, 40 Vandeventer Ave., Princeton NJ 08542.”

    The photo is from our “Yankee Swap” at the 2014 Holiday Party.
