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.  
Give it a try and email your input to swabby57@nwi.net 
and the Board will consider all the entries.

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.  

 

Watch here for scheduling time/date/location and a means to get your name on the list for these events.

broadcast as a ZOOM

The format for our December
meeting is unsure at this time, 11/22/20.  Watch
this space for news.

  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."

One of the most regular and well-attended events that ACARC sponsors is our Tuesday night Net Check-ins.  Just to give you an idea of the activity this year, see the spreadsheet below.  A greater number of people are involved here than in our Club Meetings - or just about anything else we do. 
Weekly updates are especially important during these times of change and instantaneous re-arrangement. 
 
You are welcome to join in the Net formally, or perhaps just listen in to the announcements on Tuesdays at 8:00 pm - if nothing else just so you can keep up to speed on events happening - or not happening - or dates changing. 
GUESTS WELCOME.
