CTARC Article by ZS6AKV on Morningstar - 30 May '19

After hearing a talk on our Morningstar remote-controlled station presented by by Allan ZS1LS at the recent SARL AGM in Stellenbosch, Hans ZS6AKV wrote this interesting article for the most recent edition of EngineerIT magazine. Read it [here].

Do take a look at Hans's article. He has given a wonderful explanation of our Morningstar remote station. It makes us proud to be CTARC members!

Hans also wrote another interesting article on the potential hazards of incompatible communication systems between different participants in emergency communications events. Thought-provoking and well worth reading. Find the article [here].

Thanks to Allan, Hans and EngineerIT for promoting our club!
