May 2024 Meeting Wrap-up

By | May 23, 2024
Good Conversation!

The May meeting of the David Sarnoff Radio Club was a great success. Pre-meeting tailgating party followed these instructions: Bring a hoagie or other food to eat while you chat with other club members. Also bring any items you’d like to get rid of!

We also had a chance to look at sunspots, both projected by a spotter scope onto paper (as was done by Carrington) and also with a solar filter on a small telescope. There were two groups of three spots visible.

A Good Selection of Junk!!

For the main event, Laura, John NU3E, and Charlie N2CTW presented on Solar activity…

We showed this video

Talked about Ionograms found at

and listened to 6 Meter SSB Aurora signals from VA2CST:

and 2M Aurora CW from Steve Meuse:

And Charlie reminded us all of that hit from 1956 “Northern Lights” from Songs of the Pogo.

We also thanked those who have filled out our survey and urged others to complete the survey on Field Day and Summer Activities that was sent out last week (we will send out a reminder e-mail to the list.)

Hope we have good weather next month, so we can offer up more pre-meeting junk at our tailgating party. And recruit new hams and old to join us for Field Day 2024
