The CTARC will hold its October 2017 meeting on Saturday, 28 October 2017 at 14h00 at the clubhouse.
At this meeting, Paul / ZS1S will give a presentation on his recent visit with Fred / ZS1FZ, to the Hamfest at the port of Friedrichshafen in Germany. This is Europe's (and certainly Germany's) largest gathering of radio amateurs of the year and is a major international radio amateur event on the ham calendar.
At Friedrichshafen, all the major Ham Radio suppliers (and many smaller entrepreneurs too) are represented, and make use of the opportunity to showcase exciting and innovative new radio products and services. Many radio clubs, both local and international, are present too. In addition, an enormous swop-meet takes place where everything and anything ham-related is usually on sale.
It promises to be a very interesting talk indeed.
An hour beforehand, at 13h00, Noel / ZS1FW will present a New Hams orientation lecture on Ham Radio Terminology.
