Kilocycle Club Meeting – 21 September 2017 – 7:00PM


The Kilocycle Club Of Fort Worth meets on the third Thursday of the month at Ol’ South Pancake House. Dinner usually starts around 5:30-6:00 PM with the club meeting starting at 7:00PM.  Plan to attend so you won’t miss out on the fun!

This month: Follow-up on the ice cream social with the Cowtown Amateur Radio Club – K5COW and the usual club business.

Presentation: There will be a Baofeng hand-held transceiver radio programming class after the club meeting.  Bob Ballard, KG5SQJ, will be presenting his Baofeng programming class at this month’s meeting.  This class provides instruction on manually programming memory channels into Baofeng HTs via the keypad along with some of the pros and cons associated with the manual method. 

Bob’s instructions have also been tested on a couple of Wouxon HTs as well, so feel free to bring those if you have them.

If you have other brands of Chinese HTs, bring them along – let’s see what works and what doesn’t!  Feel free to invite others who may be interested in this class. 

As a reminder, you don’t have to be a member of the Kilocycle Club to attend the meetings.  Our meetings are always open to anyone wanting to learn more about amateur radio!

License testing session follows the meeting and presentation.
