Education

We are going to try and start adding some features to the site that might interest our members.  This page will be for us to put up some educational content.  Long-term we will implement an interactive member chat forum, but in the meantime if you find something you think other members might believe to be interesting, please drop us an email at admin@wb5rdd.org.

Recently the Club started getting email via the official Club email address from a commercial operation (Connect System Inc.) that does some educational mailings reference their radio offerings.  We do not know if any of the Club members have ever dealt with CSI, but at the 10/24/2020 meeting we asked the members present if they would like for us to pass the information along and they said yes.  We have now secured permission to move the information from their emails to our website.  That information will be posted below and will periodically be updated as they issue their updates.  We will also start adding some links to other items of interest.  Examples might be to YouTube videos on building antennas, programming radios, etc.  We will be looking for content, so please let us know what you like, what you don’t like, what you would like to see, etc.

The following is an email received by the club from another club nearby.

The below will explain and include a link to download the file.

Throughout amateur radio history, there has always been the tradition of radio operators and clubs to share their knowledge with others.  This may be accomplished through direct communications while on the air with others or through magazines and newsletters.  The Tyler Amateur Radio Club (Tyler ARC) in Tyler, TX is  reaching out to other clubs around the Lone Star State and other states to continue this long-standing tradition shared by amateur radio operators.

As an outreach effort to other amateur radios clubs and their members, Tyler ARC is sending  a courtesy copy of its newsletter “The GroundWire” to radio clubs for distribution to their respective members. Your club will be emailed a monthly copy of the newsletter for distribution among your club’s members.  The following link is to the newsletter in PDF format that can be downloaded.

Your club members are also invited to share articles on amateur radio projects or research they might have completed. Those articles can be published in The GroundWire if the article is the author’s original content and/or does not violate copyrights or is adequately cited from other publications. If your club members have product reviews of amateur equipment, those articles will be welcomed as well.
