ETDXA meetings are held on the third Monday of each month except December. Dinner is at 6:00pm and the meeting begins at 7:00pm. Family and friends are always welcome. The club meets at Puleo's Grill located at 110 Cedar Lane. Coming from Knoxville, get off I-75 North at the Merchants Drive exit and turn to the right (Northeast). Go thru the traffic light (at Central Ave Pike) and Puleo's is less than 100 yards on the right.

Next meeting:  Feb 20, 2017


Program:  The scheduled February Program is a three-parter:

1>  A brief presentation by Don, K9UQN about the West Point Military Academy Ham station needs.  ETDXA member Hugh Morgan, W4VAB (SK) was VP of that club during his cadet days.

2>  A brief update by Don, K9UQN of the published NOAA propagation results of Solar Cycle 24 through January 2017 and their 2-year forecast.

3>  A discussion of the ARRL’s recent survey request about a possible new “entry level” license class or maybe modify the Technician class requirements: Come with comments and suggestions.  I sent a link to the survey request to ETDXA members last Saturday (Feb., 11).  You may also find the survey information on the ARRL web site.



Future Programs : If you have a suggestion, request or would like to make a presentation on something that you use that is appropriate for DX, please get with our 4-person Program Committee composed of our VP Dan (KE4TCT), Don (K9UQN), Lynn (W4NL) or George (W4UW).  Remember, we are always looking for DX-related presentations and subjects.
