The next meeting of the MHDXA has been scheduled for Thurs, 6 Nov, 2014. Time will be 1800 Hrs; place to be determined.
Our program for the meeting will be presented by Gene (K5GS), and the subject will be DX-Pedition Project Planning and Funding. As all of you know, Gene always has excellent programs; and I am sure this will be no exception. We all know how much DX-Peditions cost today, and both the planning and funding are major issues for any group planning to go to a remote place.
As I am sure all of you by now know, Gene is in the initial stages of planning a DX-Pedition in the fall of next year to Chesterfield Island (FK/C and #24 on the ClubLog most wanted list). With that in mind, I am sure he will be using "real time" information on the magnitude of planning and funding necessary for this DX-Pedition.
Put the meeting on your calendar, and I am looking forward to seeing everyone there.
Dick Williams, K8ZTT
Just a reminder for our next meeting; Wed 27 March, 1730 hrs, at the Golden Corral just south and west of Santa Fe and Hampton (3676 Natches Ct, Sheridan, CO.)
The program is Magnetic Loop Antennas. Mr Talley from Pixel Technologies http://www.pixelsatradio.com/ will give both a presentation and a demonstration of the magnetic loop antenna his company manufactures.
Additionally, I will be available to check QSL cards for submission to the ARRL for DXCC credit. The best (and most reasonable) way to do it is via the DXCC online option.
Just as a "head up"; there have been several "issues" surface when using Internet Explorer 8 or earlier versions with the online DXCC application. If you are still using one of these, either upgrade to a newer version, or use an alternate browser (Firefox, Chrome, Safari).
If you have any questions or need help, give me a call.
