RARC Meeting January 28, 2021
The first meeting of 2021 for the Reelfoot Amateur Radio Club was called to order via Zoom on January 28th. There were seven members and six visitors in attendance. Ben Braddock, a newly licensed ham waiting on his call sign, was in attendance. Dave Emmitt KE4O from Lexington, Kentucky, joined in for the meeting.
Noel KJ4UNX reviewed the financial report and old business from our last meeting in October.
Our President Jamie WB4YDL asked everyone in attendance to talk about what they have been doing since our previous meeting.
Trent Fleming N4DTF gave an excellent PowerPoint presentation on cyber-security threats and how to protect your computer, bank accounts, and personal info. He also talked about his NanoVNA analyzer and how it checks antennas and coax. After the presentation, Trent answered numerous questions on the topic. I believe everyone learned a lot from this talk.
