Programming memories into your Baofang by hand

Sept 15th Station Opening

This morning there were ten hams at The Station: KA5DLV, KM4OZK, N4CU, N4FQJ, KM4JJS, N4GXX, KN4OPX (New ham Van), KJ4RWD, KJ4PIU AND KE4BFX.The session opened up with a topic from N4CU on operating your HT with the antenna vertical and also horizontal.  We talked about the power loss and the “coolness” factor.The presentation (which is attached) went well, with plenty of questions.  We even had questions “before” the session started.  We got into some of the common menuing items to program a  memory, plus the high level variances between a Baofang and one of the big three radios (Icom, Yaesu, Kenwood).   There was also discussion on the effectiveness of getting packages (cable and software) from RT Systems, and the effectiveness of using CHIRP for managing radio memories.I actually walked away with one additional radio to program.Thanks to all that showed up!  I believe next week is “The Antenna Tuner Tuner”, by President Ron.73, and take care,Bruce
