SVRC Summer Picnic

The Sangamon Valley Radio Club will celebrate the 2018 summer season with a picnic on June 2, from 10am to 4pm at the Rochester Community Park.  We will be at the large pavilion located next to a fishing pond and great protected playground.  Restrooms are close by. Bring your favorite picnic food & drink, radios and antennas - or just come to eat and chat with your fellow amateur radio enthusiasts. Power is available. There are several permanent grills to roast your hamburgers, hot dogs or BBQ squid.  If you plan to fish, bring your fishing license and pole!  RC boats are fun too!

MODES, MODES, AND MORE MODES

Modes. There's a word you run across all the time in amateur radio.  What exactly do we mean by mode?  Well, the answer is: it depends on the context in which it's used.  There's modulation modes, operating modes, digital communication modes, and all kinds of other flavors of mode.  K9ZXO takes a stab at explaining some of the possible uses of the word in this five minute "mini-lesson".
