Online Club Meetings Ease Shelter-In-Place Isolation
by Lee Chambers, KI7SS, and Phil Cornell, W7PLC
Under a “stay home” order due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Washington state’s Olympia Amateur Radio Society (OARS) members were feeling the impacts of isolation, missing the camaraderie of meetings, programs, and much more. Forced to implement a solution, we evaluated the cost and benefits of internet video conferencing programs available, settling on Zoom video conferencing software. It fit our budget and participant needs, and it works on any platform.

Go-Kit Basics
Preparing an efficient go-kit ensures you are ready when a deployment call comes
by Caroline Kenney
For emergency communications operators, being prepared for a deployment involves a wide range of considerations. In the event of an emergency, a disaster, a public service deployment, or a power outage, as an emergency communications operator, you are responsible for serving while staying safe, healthy, and clean, without access to everyday resources. Assembling a go-kit, also known as a go-bag or a ready kit, ensures that your necessary equipment, supplies, and personal belongings are ready when you need them.

A Simple 122 GHz Transverter: An easier way onto the 2.4 mm-wave band
by Andrew J. Anderson, VK3CV/WQ1S
The 2.4 mm amateur band at 122.25 GHz to 123 GHz seems out of reach to many ham operators because the equipment can be very complex and requires a lot of experience to build. The very expensive components are hard to find and test equipment is rare.
