Weekly Club Activities

Did you know the FRC now has a Weekly Wednesday Net?

We have revived a very old FRC tradition. Come join us for our Wednesday Night 2 meter roundtable net. If you haven’t been on 2 meter FM for a while, this is a good excuse to be sure your batteries are charged and your radio still works! See below for frequency and PL.

Since we are not currently meeting in person monthly, we have rearranged our schedule to meet weekly, but virtually, using Zoom. You are welcome to join us on 2 meters for a casual roundtable net every Wednesday evening at 7:30, followed by a session on Zoom at 8:00. Since the propagation is always excellent on Zoom, we have been seeing some familiar faces who live too far away to attend in-person meetings.

July 15 – 2 m Net followed by FRC Meeting

underground

7:30 pm – Roundtable net on K6QEH repeater. 146.970 MHz -offset PL:136.5 Hz

8:00 pm – Club meeting on Zoom. Check your email for Zoom info.

Join us this Wednesday for a 2m net followed by our monthly meeting. This month’s presentation will be by Joe Moell, K0OV who will talk to us about an unusual underground power project.

Joe says, “Have you noticed the newer, taller power towers that go through the Puente Hills, then east across the 57 freeway and into Chino Hills? Why were they put in? Where does the power come from and where does it go? Why would Edison put parts of a 500-kilovolt power line underground, and how did they do that safely? I decided to try to find out, so I did some “digging” of my own. I didn’t become a power distribution expert, but during the July FRC online meeting, I’ll show you some things I discovered. If there’s time, I’ll tell you how to find out how reliable your home electrical service is, and how it is distributed from the six substations in Fullerton. If you don’t live in Fullerton, I’ll show how to find out about your city’s electrical distribution and reliability.”

June 17 Meeting Program

As we have done for the past few FRC meetings, we will meet online using Zoom. A reminder with the Zoom information and time will be sent by email to our groups.io mailing list.

Our speaker this month will be our club vice-president, Bob Houghton AD6QF. Although thirty years ago, Bob passed the 5 wpm code test to earn his Novice license, he admits that he has never used CW for a QSO. Bob would like to become a proficient CW operator. He has recently joined the Long Island CW Club. The purpose of the club is to help people learn morse code by providing classes and mentoring. Bob will tell a little about the club and reflect on his experience during his first two weeks of membership.

Bob will also discuss some of the new initiatives that ARRL is rolling out in order to encourage new hams to become active members of the amateur radio community as well as trying to give some insight into where younger hams are going to get their information. Hint: For the most part it isn’t traditional clubs…

Club Logo Final

May 19 Meeting Program

Title: The Science Involved with Whiskey Making

Subtitle: The Jack Daniel’s Distillery Tour where chemistry lessons are inserted along the way.

The Muckenthaler [Fullerton’s cultural center] sponsored a tour of Nashville Tennessee which included a tour of the Jack Daniels distillery. Several months later there was a reunion for which Walter put together a talk which was inspired by his brother to be technical. Walter’s brother is a retired chemical engineer and noticed three of the 6 most important chemical reactions in history are involved with whiskey making. There’s over a hundred slides but they go by quickly. It has a few chemical looking diagrams, but mostly people and places.
