Hello to all,

Time for our August meeting... Oh, did say August, the weather must have thrown me off... I meant... our September meeting.

It will be at Uno Chicago Grill on US Rt 9 in Queensbury, NY right across the street from Walmart - Monday, 28-Sept-2015 at 7:00pm (Ok, 2300 UTC-4 for all of you time geeks out there).

We will surely have another good meeting as we’ll probably discuss possible officer nominations for our upcoming (October) election and plenty of other exciting things.

None of those things, though, can compare to what we have in store for a presentation!

Arranged through the unceasing efforts of our president (N2VU) who, by the way has not slept at all during his entire term as president of the club just so we can have meetings like we have.

We are fortunate to have a presentation by John Fritze (K2QY) on APRS and related topics.

John will give us the rundown on what APRS is, some basic history and info on who created the system, how the APRS network works, some examples of what we see on the network, how to get started with APRS and lots more. John will also include some discussion of what’s new and what the future might hold.

Then, of course, I will be performing my new song “Amazing APRS”...

Really??? You might ask. Well, OK, OK, OK... so here are the lyrics to the first verse (to the tune of Amazing Grace):

Amazing rigs, how sweet the sound
That broke the squelch with me
I once was lost, but now I have
APRS on my HT...

I might not get the whole song done by the meeting, so those of you who were planning to pass on the meeting in protest of my song-writing ability should feel much safer about attending and seeing one of John’s fine presentations.

As usual, I am sure I have said just about enough now... so I’ll just add that I look forward to seeing you all on Monday evening.

73,
