A radio related presentation then follows at roughly 8pm. Meetings are open to members and non-members alike – all are welcome to attend.

Presentation: A video tour of the ARRL Headquarters in Newington, CT.
Sit back, relax, see and learn about the various departments within the ARRL and how each of them function. Meet the people who get things done, and put faces on those voices you have spoken to over the phone (or on the air).

Topic: “HF Digital Modes”
By: Steven Smith WA8LMF

Steven roams around the state providing quality
presentations on the topic of “HF Digital Modes” for the
ARRL Michigan Section. Tonight, Steven will grace us
with his presentation, covering what are the ‘digital’
modes, how are each used, what hardware and software is
needed to operate these modes, and where such hardware
and software can be aquired. You will likely learn more
about such modes as PSK31, Olivia, MFSK, MT63, QPSK, and
others, including software such as FLDIGI, that you ever
knew existed!

Monthly Breakfast, Saturday, June 20, 9 a.m.

The monthly ARROW breakfast will take place on Saturday, June 20, 9-11 AM at the Classic Cup Cafe, 4389 Jackson Road, Ann Arbor. Anyone interested in ham radio (or eating breakfast, for that matter) is welcome to join us. Family members and friends are also welcome. I hope to see you there.
