Training Topic Ideas

Post by K5ICR » Sun Jun 14, 2015 6:20 am

All,

Your club officers are looking into establishing a training program and want to solicit your input on topics.

So far, the following topics are on the table (UPDATED 07/31/2015):
  • Programming radios (how-to)
  • HF 101
  • APRS 101
  • Digital modes generally (setup of computer and radio)
  • DSTAR 101
  • RF safety and MPE calculations
  • Fox hunting 101 - directional antennas and step attenuators
  • Homebrewing SSB and CW TX/RX/TXRX
  • So I have my Tech license, what now?
  • Getting started on HF - emphasis on 10m
  • VHF/UHF weak signal work, an introduction
  • Working satellites 101
Please reply with suggestions for any additional training topics you'd like to see. I will compile the results and run a poll to narrow the list down to the most popular few options.

73,
Matthew

Use of software to determine uncontrolled MPE limits for antennas and use of legal power limits.

I've got a few ideas...

- Now that I've got my Tech license, what do I do next?
- how to get started on HF. 10meters for everyone!
- Intro to VHF/UHF weak signal work (ssb, WSJT, meteor scatter, moonbounce, etc)
- Working the Easy Sats
