> NEW! Next Meeting - November 8 ... Annual "Swap/Barter/Giveaway" Meeting!

We will be meeting on November 8th at the Brooklawn Community Center, from 9am-12 noon. This is our annual "bring your old stuff to the meeting so you can give it away or trade for someone else's old stuff" meeting.  We have lots of very good older radio magazines to give away, and some some fabulous "estate sale" items that NJQRPers attending will have first dibs on.  (We'll soon have a web page up showing these gems!)

See our meeting page for more info. And as done in the past, some of us will meet at about 7:45 for breakfast at the Metro Diner, just down the road from the Community Center.  Why not stop in with us for a coffee & danish before the meeting?!

> Weekly TeamSpeak Sessions: "Chat With The Designers"

The monthly TeamSpeak "Chat with the Designers" sessions will soon start up again on Tuesday nights again at 8 PM Eastern (0000z Wed). You can join us live or catch up with previous sessions at any time with the podcasts that we post. Our TeamSpeak Session Home Page has instructions as well as links to the "whiteboard material" and podcasts of our previous topics and discussions!

> See Notes & photos of our Group Build

We had a great group build "Workshop" on Dec 11, 2011 at the Armstrong Hall Engineering Lab at the College of New Jersey. Great thanks to Professor Al Katz (the famous UHF ham) who let us use the engineering lab to continue the build-up of our Ensemble RX-II kits. A big thanks also to Joe Jesson, KC2VGL for arranging this venue, which could become a regular place for the continued stream of Group Build activities that we have planned for the club. The Ensemble RX II is an all-HF band receiver kit that includes the components for building the receiver for HF operation (1.8 MHz through 30 MHz). We're looking forward to getting this compact little receiver working first with the PC, and then shortly thereafter with a small project board (our follow-on group build) to eliminate the need for the PC. "We don't need no stinkin' PC!

> NJQRP Resource Page

We have collected some great sources of information and posted them in a web page called "NJQRP Resources", check it out at http://www.njqrp.org/resources/index.php.

> NJQRP Yahoo! Group

After 10 years of faithful service (thanks to Bob, K2UT) we have retired our old email list server and moved to a Yahoo! Group. This group continues to let us share email with everyone as well as adding many new features. The old mail list server was retired at the end of 2007.

> Elmer 160 Course - learn how to program PICs!

John McDonough, WB8RCR has designed an on line introductory course for learning how to program and use PIC micro controllers. As course instructor, he will start off with very basic principles, and take students to the point of designing their own PIC applications. While the focus will be on the PIC16F84 chip, principles are applicable to the entire range of micro controllers from Microchip.
