    Contest University

    https://www.contestuniversity.com Take a look in the FILES section for presentations from previous years. Tom Webb (WA9AFM) shared one from 2018 "How to Adapt Your DX Contest Strategies for Low Solar Activity" at the club meeting on January 19, 2019. There are numerous presentations & videos for download.

  5. Tractor supply sells boxes of electric fence plastic insulators for around $12 for 200 of them. They are about 4 inches long. If interested I can show (tell) you how I made 200 ft of open wire feedline. Impedance is about 550 ohms. Labor intensive, but I am retired and work cheap. Doug W5FN (ex N4IJ)

    Winter Field Day

    until
    https://www.winterfieldday.com/ Not affiliated with ARRL. This is pretty much like ARRL Field Day, except hosted by a different group with a few different rules. You can participate as a home station on commercial power. You just lose access to lots of bonus points. But if you're playing for fun, looking to make some QSO's toward an award, or maybe thinking about test driving a new operating mode (such as FT8 this year), this might be what you're looking for!

    All Ham Dinner

    until
    Many years ago, the amateur radio clubs in the Oklahoma City area started an event that is now known as the "All Ham Club Dinner". This dinner allows about 50 hams get together, eat, and communicate with each other. This dinner is held on the third Thursday of January, May, and September at 6:30 pm. (NOTE CORRECTED TIME) The next All Ham Club Dinner will be held Thursday, January 17th, 2019, at 6:30 pm. This dinner will be at the Golden Corral, 1501 SW 74th, (North side of the north service road of I-240) in south Oklahoma City. No RSVP is needed, show up, get your meal, and join the fun in their large banquet room. Thanks es 73, Mark N5HZR President Central Oklahoma Radio Amateurs

    Great DX Spotting Software VE3SUN

    It does have the ability to send SMS messages to your phone. Using something like Node-Red and MQQT could be made to do whatever you want. Go to http://www.ve3sun.com/ Search for SMS on that page. Dave

    CW/Morse

    Here is the CWOPS Club Newsletter to view if interested. It is very well done and has lots of info for any interested in CW, especially learning it with their academy ELMERS. Doug W5FN solid-copy-201812-1-1.pdf

    Great DX Spotting Software VE3SUN

    I think I downloaded and ran it once. I don't remember - does it have the ability to send you an e-mail if you set up a filter for a country or callsign? DXWATCH claims to be able to do that but I never have seen it work. DDoug

    OCAPA 2018 Christmas Party

    Merry Christmas to all. I won't be at the xmas party. Too far, too expensive for what you get, and seems like it will be a rush job to get in and out due to other activities in the room later. Again, Merry Christmas, Doug W5FN (N4IJ)

    OCAPA Christmas Party

    until
    Golden Corral, I-240 & Penn
  28. The annual OCAPA Christmas Dinner will be on Tuesday, 18 December, at the Golden Corral on I-240 just east of Penn. Safest access coming from the east is to take the Western Avenue exit from I-240 and use the frontage road. From the west, take the Pennsylvania Avenue exit, go north about 200 yards and then take the eastbound drive to get to the restaurant from the north side. We'll be in the 'party room' in the southeast corner of 'the Corral'. We'll meet at 5 PM (there was a group already scheduled in at 7 PM), have dinner, good fellowship, introductions, door prize drawings and the selection of the 2019 custodian of the infamous "6 Meter Radio". Spouses and harmonics are very welcome. This gathering will be in lieu of the regular December OCAPA meeting. There will be NO VE testing on Saturday, 15 December.
