November Program Recap

At the November CMSARA meeting on November 15 2016, R.A. “Smitty” Smith (W4UDH) gave a wonderful talk about propagation. He spoke about reasons, techniques and tips for communicating in the amateur bands using propagation to full advantage. He also discussed technical resources available for amateurs related to propagation. Smitty has been a ham for many many years, and has earned multiple ARRL awards, including the WAC (Worked All Continents), WAS (Worked All States) and WAZ (Worked All Zones). Smitty is also a member of the illustrious ARRL VHF/UHF Century Club, having worked more that 100+ countries.

As an added bonus at the meeting; Reece Morris, the Grandson of CMSARA member Eugene Wallace (N5CMA), gave a interesting presentation about his Great-grandfather (also a radio amateur). He spoke about how he was taught about becoming a ham, and how he was inspired to design and build his own antenna system! Reece is ready for his first amateur license, and an inspiration to other young people desiring to enter the hobby. Thank you Reece!
