2013

> Next Meeting:  TBD

Attendance has been steadily declining in recent years and we're determining the best way to continue holding the club meetings.  Let us know your thoughts. 

> "Hands-On Homebrewing" presented at TCF 2013 by N2APB & N2CX

We had fun presenting at the TCF conference in Trenton on March 16 this year ... despite the snow storm encountered on the way home! We showed and discussed more than 50 simple homebrew projects that we've designed or used over the years here among the NJQRP gang.  We also brought some nifty serial displays (app and data notes) which may be useful in some of our projects going forward.
 

> Weekly TeamSpeak Sessions: "Chat With The Designers"

We are conducting bi-weekly TeamSpeak "Chat with the Designers" sessions every other Tuesday night 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!

> NJQRP Yahoo! Group

Click the image on the left or see this page for instructions on signing up for our Yahoo! email group to join in on the technical and operating discussions, and to learn what events are coming up for those in the NJ-and-surrounding region.

> 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 Skeeter Hunt

The NJQRP Skeeter Hunt is arranged and coordinated annually by Larry, w2LJ. See the official NJQRP Skeeter Hunt Webpage or Larry's blog for all of the details.

> See Notes & photos of our Group Build of the "Softrock Ensemble RX II" Kit

We had a great group build "Workshop" on Dec 11, 2011 at the Armstrong Hall Engineering Lab at the College of New Jersey. Thanks to Professor Al Katz 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. 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 sometime later with a small project board (our follow-on group build) to eliminate the need for the PC. "We don't need no stinkin' PC!
