CAKE January 14
Crumbs January 14
New Year Greetings to all
We began the New Year with a big turn out for one primary reason. Our dear friend Frank K6BDK who is leaving us for pastures new in Bend Oregon. I have known Frank for a mere 22 years and many present go back much further. Frank has regularly attended our CAKE sessions and is well regarded for his acute questions and insights. We are pleased to learn that he will be able to put up some decent antennas and that we will meet him on the air soon. He intends to stay in touch
Those present to wish him God-speed were Bob K6XX, Ron K6EXT, Cap KE6AFE, JV K6HJU, Don K6GHA, Chuck W1WUH, Glen KG0T, John N5HPB, Peter K6UNO, Reed N1WC, David KG6IRW, Fred KJ6OOV, Tom KW6S and Ron W6WO
The items of interest that were up for discussion included a module from the original computer used in the development of Fortran, a GPS receiver in a very nice enclosure, a print from the 1900s of a CW pulse that went round the world 3-times and the QRP-Labs WSPR/digital mode beacon transmitter.
Thanks to all for showing up today BCNU in future CAKE sessions
PS Thanks for the chocolate CAKE Don !
