The PAPA Orange County Luncheon was held on Saturday July 22
We had 34 people attend the luncheon this month. The test session had 13 people with a 100% passing rate – 7 new Technicians, 3 people upgrading to General and 3 getting their Extras!
Royden was the winner of the TYT handheld radio after passing his Technician exam… congrats!
Michael AF6FB reviewed the PAPA website showing all of the tools available including the member directory, repeater coverage maps, codeplugs and Ask Papa. Michael demonstrated all of the major website screens showing how easy it is to access the massive amount of information available on the site.
The raffle winner was Mike KN6LJF who picked up a Mity Go Box w/28 watt foldable solar panel courtesy of Impulse Electronics.
Next month, Tim KN6PHP will be leading a demonstration and working session on how to put connectors on to LMR cable. Join us to learn all tricks and you will even have the opportunity to make your own cables. Reach out to Cecil for more information on a possible bulk purchase where you can get cable to length and connectors to make your own antenna runs at the meeting. See you on August 26 at 11:00 am at the Sizzler in Fullerton!
