K6AA -United Radio Amateur Club (Maritime Museum, San Pedro , Ca)

K6AA -United Radio Amateur Club

Well it was Friday night (Feb 19, 2010) and I had a good idea. To go down to San Pedro and attend the K6AA -United Amateur Radio Club meeting. Met some great people and won the raffle. A brand new digital multimeter. If that wasn’t nice enough the recipient of the next prize was gracious enough to give me the measuring tape he won.

Excluding August and December, the United Radio Amateur Club meets the third Friday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Los Angeles Maritime Museum at the foot of Sixth Street in San Pedro, California.

The guest speaker was Clint Bradford and he spoke on using hamsats, Echo 51 using just a handheld radio. I will include links below
