  • Cosmic Rays Solar Cycle 25 is beginning, and this is reflected in the number of cosmic rays entering Earth’s atmosphere. Neutron counts from the University of Oulu’s Sodankyla Geophysical Observatory show that cosmic rays reaching Earth are slowly declining–a result of the yin-yang relationship between the solar cycle and cosmic rays.

Winter Field Day January 28 at 11:00 AM – January 29 to 11:00 AM 24 hrs

For more info go to winter field day on the WEB.

Chris had brought in some things for give away.

Phil announced that he has a new project, it is a one tube5 watt transmitter.

Phil is in the process of gathering parts, and design etc. My guess is Phil was inspired with the one tube 5 watt transmitter that Mike WA6ARA had built for SK night.

His project brought on conversation about crystals and parts, it was very interesting.

SHOW AND TELL

Phil gave a short talk about Web SDR along with handouts. Phil pointed out the features and usefulness for HAM radio. It was an interesting talk for all.

Hope to see you all next month.
