This program was originally scheduled for the April meeting.
Looking for a ham radio activity the whole family can enjoy? Want an outdoor “techie” sport that will make kids set aside the video games and smartphones? Joe Moell, KØOV, will tell us about the fun of radio direction finding (RDF) and the many variations such as T-hunting, radio-orienteering, and foxoring (come to find out what this is) and how you may already have the needed equipment. As a bonus the same equipment and skills can be used to find RFI.
