Every January Meeting we hold Project Night, where members bring in and share recent homebrew projects that they have built. This year’s Project Night was full of interesting projects built by our members.
Bob, KB1TEK brought some QRP kits that he had built.
Dave, K1DHP showed us the VLF Detector that he built.
Hamilton, K1HMS brought Antenna Switches that he had built.
Dave, K1DLM showed us a Heathkit that he plans to build.
Fred, AB1OC brought an 80m band matching system that he will install in order to make our 80m delta loop be resonant across the band. He has programmed our MicroHam system to automatically have the box switch the matching system as we tune through the 80m band. I’m looking forward to using this to get the last 20 80m contacts for my 5 Band DXCC!
I (AB1QB) demonstrated a Raspberry Pi project that I built over the holidays. It is called a Morse Code Virtual Radio. When you hook up a monitor and a straight key to the Raspberry Pi, it will decode what you key in. This was a big hit with the kids who visited us for ARRL Kids Day.
Finally, Mike, AB1YK brought in a number of projects that he has done including a Panadapter and a CW Generator.
Overall it was great to see all of the projects that our members have been working on. The gallery above contains more pictures from Project Night.
