Be sure to keep April 26, 2014 open for our clubs upcoming PR event. The SFM ARC is once
again proud to participate in this years award winning Kid's Day in the Park event. The Kid's Day
in the park program is sponsered by the Family Support Services and the Rancho Cordova
Police department. This event is a great opportunity for W6SFM to meet and greet people while
doing great outreach to Kids and the general public on Ham Radio and the use of CW.
The club will require as many as possible to help with this much needed program. More details
will be given as they are made available to the club. Stay tuned!
Club Build set for April's in-person meeting
The W6SFM and it's members are set to build a series of Band Pass Filters to be used at our
next Field Day operations. These band pass filters will be used to keep strong RF signals
caused by close proximity transmissions from 'blocking' one receivers front end as the other
station is operating on another band. The members of the club will enjoy the build during the last
hour of our meeting. If you care to join us and want to do some 'pre' reading on the design and
construction of the filters please click HERE for all the information. Come enjoy some of the fun
with us next month!
