Date   
December Christmas Plans

AD0UK
 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

   This year for the Christmas party there was a vote of the members present at the October meeting and HyVee was not chosen as the place of our festivities.  This year we attempted to find another place - Pam so kindly called around for us and the only place we could find on short notice was Olive Garden on Dec 10 @7 pm.  We will be ordering off the men, there is no room fee and we have a section for up to 50 people - we are supposed to be the only ones in that section.  Please be aware of this change in the Party and hope those who can make it will come out.  It has also been put on the agenda to discuss this at future meetings, earlier than we did this year and decide where we want to go next year, and start making arrangements earlier next year.

Upcoming tower safety program

Hi

On this week's Ham Nation Bob Heil K9EID said that this program will have a series of three programs focusing on tower safety starting on December 4. Even if you don't have a tower this is going to be good information to have in your mind's memory bank.

I'll ask before the CW guys chime in (we all know their answer). And I know
listening to 7.200 at night what SSB operations can do to an alleged
functional brain.

I decided to make my last remaining neuron (Bessie) exercise a little more
by learning cw in a real, qualitative way. I want to do better than my
straight key, multiple mistakes at 10 wpm, any mode has to be better than
this, pain in the hind end - existence.

I bought a second hand MFJ-564 Iambic key at Raytown, which has a very nice
hamfest, by the way, just across the road from a great breakfast joint
named The Big Biscuit. I little cleaning, replace the 1/4" stereo plug with
a 3.5mm for the Kenwood TS-480HX, and find the right spot to plug it in.
Don't use "key", it will only get you a single contact to key the
transmitter. Look for the one labeled (you guessed it) "paddle". Now I get
to figure out what Iambic A and B means, how to set the speed, and -Holy
Smokes - I have three memories I can put up to 250 dots each into!
But I digress, how can something invented around the Civil Way era help me
keep my sanity?

If you said something about it, I wasn't listening. Sorry.

Yes, Virginia, there is a study out there that says you can stave off
dementia by learning a second language. Maybe this won't be a bad
experiment after all. Maybe in an era of dying languages, I can do my part
to preserve the lost language of the inconvenienced electron.

Or better yet, can I learn Morse Code without studying the AMECO charts and
playing those records for hours at a time in the upstairs bedroom? Why yes,
Virginia, it appears so!
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/10/161028115427.htm

Now, who has Google glass that wants to help in the experiment? My wife
could benefit from all this science going on! (But don't tell her just yet,
she has no idea about my relationship with Bessie.)

Very interesting Fred, thanks!

For those interested, there is a KH-9 in the Wright Patterson Air museum at
Dayton. They have a KH-8 and a KH-7 on display as well. If you haven't
ever toured the museum, you might plan to go to Hamvention a day early and
tour the museum if you ever get the chance.

Dang your hide, Swisher!

First, you take away my Saturday morning coffee relaxation, and now you're going on about things I can't have!  Who are you, really?  Robin Leach?  Showing me things I'll never be able to afford, even if they were available.

Well, it's good to know this is out there for the select few.  Now, I have to figure out how I can learn CW and stave off the dementia.
