The Quarter Century Wireless Association, Inc. (QCWA) is an organization of licensed amateur radio operators (Hams) who were first licensed at least 25 years ago. It is not required that licensing have been continuous during that period. Our chapter (70) is one of the 230 world-wide chartered chapters.
Our members share a common interest (passion?) for amateur radio and promote friendship and cooperation amongst like-minded individuals.
Our chapter holds quarterly meetings on the third Tuesday of February, May, September and November and are currently being held via the Internet. In addition to the quarterly meetings, our weekly open breakfast is popular with our members (see below).
Chapter meetings will continue to use the Zoom technology until such time as we can resume in-person meetings.
Topic: Introduction to N1MM Logger+.
Speaker: Richard Ferch, VE3KI
Details: Even if you are not a contester, the N1MM Logger+ software is worth learning about. Richard will walk you through what it does and what it does not do for someone using it. He will follow that with a live demonstration of installing the program and configuring N1MM for the first time, then setting it up for a contest (Field Day or Canada Day), and logging a few demonstration contacts. Finally, Richard will do a run-through of the major program features and an overview of some of the program's other features.
This is an excellent opportunity to learn about this very popular program.
Date: Tuesday evening, May 24, 2022.
Time: The Zoom Session will be open for Check-ins and Greetings starting at 7 pm, the meeting Call-to-Order will start at 7:30 pm.

If you're comfortable getting together, drop by for some great ham radio conversation with some familiar faces. Breakfast is at 8 AM, give or take a bit.
