Attention to those of you who may have Artistic/Design talent.
There is a move afoot to possibly upgrade or re-design or modernize our club's logo. The need exists to digitize the logo for many reasons in this computer-driven age, so if we are going to do that, it is the perfect time to take a good hard look at the logo and improve it.

1. Due to all the restrictions about gatherings, regretfully we will NOT be able to have our annual Christmas Party this year.
2. Fun Fact. In October our website was very well viewed, we even had visitors from - this is true - Prague, Frankfort, Singapore, Sydney, and Brisbane. NEW. Click HERE to see a cool spreadsheet showing where ALL of our viewers came from, both in the States and around the world in October 2020. Amazing.
3. Under the SWAP & SHOP tab is a new sub-tab called Free Offers. In this area we will be adding a new on-line place for our members to sort through their excess collection of needy stuff and maybe de-clutter a bit by giving things away that are no longer needed but may still be of use to others. Descriptions and Photos to Swabby57@nwi.net.
5. The club's Monday Lunches at the local ABBY's on 5th and Western is on hold again with the Covid restrictions in force. Watch here for re-opening news.
6. Preliminary steps are being taken to re-schedule the Soldering Classes we had to cancel due to the Corona debacle. Thoughts are to split the students into two groups in order to maintain distancing and gathering limits.

Click HERE to read about the tinySA
from Jim Alyn N7JA
His description, experience, and analysis of the equipment starts thus:
"For the past several months, I have been beta testing the tinySA, that is, the tiny Spectrum Analyzer.
If you’re familiar with the NanoVNA, the tinySA is exactly the same size, approximately 3.5 inches by 2.2 inches, with ascreensize of 2.8 inches. The tinySA has two bands, one from basically DC to 350 MHz. The second band covers from 240 MHz to 960 MHz. The second band is basically extra functionality thrown in for free, and doesn’t have the same performance as the lower band."
