Portland Amateur Radio Club monthly meeting  

W7LT.ORG

The March program is on Radio Direction Finding (RDF).  Commonly
known as Transmitter Hunting or Bunny Hunting, this involves
locating radio transmitters.  The same principles apply for
finding ELT beacons in downed aircraft, sources of interference,
for fun or as a competitive sport.

While many transmitter hunts involve vehicles driving around the
city, there are also international competitions that use RDF
along with a map and compass on foot to find multiple
transmitters hidden in a large forest, sort of a combination of
radio, geocaching and orienteering.  While the international
courses can require good physical condition, it also makes a good
leisurely activity for the whole family, and a ham license is not
required to participate.

Dale Hunt WB6BYU is an enthusiastic local proponent of RDF in
various forms, as well as being an internationally known known
competitor and Captain of the US team at World Championship
events.  He will share the excitement of transmitter hunting as
well as discussing techniques, equipment and applications.

Plan to attend the March meeting to earn more about this
international Ham Radio activity.

The meeting is in the Lower Level Auditorium at One Liberty Centre. 
650 NE Holladay Street Portland, near Lloyd Center.
Friday, March 27th, 2015 at 7:30PM
The program will begin at 7:40 PM.
 
The entrance to One Liberty Centre is on the south (courtyard) side of the building (opposite the Holladay St light rail line). 
 
Press the intercom button on the column to the left of the main entry doors for access. Security will buzz you in. Sign in with Security, and then take the elevator to the Lower Level (LL). We meet in the Auditorium. 
 
All are invited and welcome. Info at www.w7lt.org

As a reminder to everyone, tomorrow, February 22, is not just Washington's Birthday, but also the birthday of Robert & Olave Baden-Powell - and is traditionally known as "Founders' Day."

It is a day to wear your scout group necker as you go about your daily life—both as a reminder to yourself of the traditions you uphold, and to let those around you know that you consider them important, and support scouting.

Marcus Mariota's final home game play for this season. He is for real. Left the field to a standing ovation.

Fun place to watch a game. Met interesting people.

Spoke to a special event station via Amateur Radio from Portland, OR last weekend. The group was making contacts from the Discone antenna. Really interested in this part of history.

Before Joy opened Samui Thai, my team at Dark Horse comics would eat lunch several times a week in Milwaukie where she previously presided at Rice Thai. The menu here is more diverse and the service is as much if not more hospitable. The cut flower decorations are a delight. I hope to visit Thailand someday and see in person where this food comes from. Recommend asking for a recommendation from your server or consider the specials of the day. Often find creations not on the menu to be quite delicious.
