If you missed the last PRA monthly meeting, you missed an action packed get-together. We had an excellent presentation by Paul, AC5S, on D-Star technology. Paul reviewed some D-Star basics, as well as had hands on demonstrations of DVAP, DVMega, Raspberry Pi. Thanks to Patrick, KT1GGR, we were able to use his D-Star demonstration board to easily show a functional DVAP portable hotspot that included a raspberry pi, wireless hotspot and DVAP setup. Many new members as well as the “long-time” members had excellent questions and were impressed by the potential that D-Star has in their operating. We also had a few new faces and members join the PRA as well!
Also, at the meeting, the finalized voting for the 2016 Leadership Team for the next two-year term was conducted. The results were as follows:
Chief Communications Officer-Steve, K0SCL
Chief Technology Officer-Dirk, N2PDQ
A special thanks to Terry, WB3EVZ for acting as the Election Chairperson and organizing the communications and process, as well as his team that verified the votes received over the past month.
