Hello everyone with an update for the Amateur Radio Club at UCSD!
This fall quarter we will be holding joint general body meeting (GBM) with TritonCubed on Friday, October 7 10 AM to 2 PM on Library Walk at the Class of 1972 marker. Plan on an in person meeting because we will be outside. Look for the BuddiPole antenna. We will talk about our club, upcoming events, and give a brief demonstration of our ICOM 7300 radio. We can also discuss activities members may be interested in (licensing, contests, volunteering, etc.). Also, the meeting will be recorded for anyone unable to attend.
We also have created a Discord server! If you are not in the Discord server and would like to join, you can use the following link.
Additionally, October 14-16, we will be helping out with Jamboree On the Air, led by Kevin KK6FRK. This is an in-person event at Camp Balboa – Scout Headquarters, and even if you are not licensed, you can learn by coming for part of the time. If you are interested, send us an email!
The week of October 18 to October 22 is ARRL’s School Club Roundup, which is a contesting event. We will likely use the ICOM 7300 radio remotely for this, which we will demonstrate during the GBM. Even for students without a license, we can facilitate third-party traffic, so feel free to let us know.
