The Northern California DX Club will be occupying 4-5 selling areas of the DeAnza Electronics Flea Market on Saturday May 13th starting at 6am. Club members will be selling their Amateur Radio gear and other electronics.
Here is the perfect opportunity to find some bargains on terrific equipment for your shack. Details and directions can be found at http://www.electronicsfleamarket.com/
I would like to invite you and your club members to the Valley of the Moon (VOMARC) annual HAMFEST on April 29th.
The event features a swap meet, delicious breakfast, VE session, demonstration stations, prizes, and much more.
Please visit Vomarc.org for more info and a flyer download.
Hope to see you there.
Double session: Setting up your Ham Station w/ James KM6ASJ and Yaesu FT-60R Basic Operation w/ Nick NF1P.
Setting Up Your Ham Shack – James DOWNS, KM6ASJ
A presentation on the selection, assembly, and testing of components, for optimal performance.
Yaesu FT-60R: Basic Operation – Nick POWELL, NF1P
A hands-on Yaesu FT-60R HT workshop: discussion of accessories; demonstration of essential operator skills; review of skills maintenance strategies.
Participants must bring copy of valid FCC amateur radio license and their own (i.e. no sharing) fully charged and operational Yaesu FT-60R.
A new milestone was reached as SFRC Education and VE Testing teams set out on the weekend of February 10th to provide our first Technician License Class outside of the club. Employees of AMGEN, of South San Francisco, expressed a desire to get their licenses as part of their new emergency response team.
The three-day effort was a complete success as 15 students ( including my wife, Karen) participated in our course and all earned their new license! Congratulations to everyone!
I guess that I will soon have to share my Radio Shack.

Pretty sweet!!!
