22, 2010 Meeting
Bill Latta receiving the award from Darrell Darby
month, Darrell Darby offered to host
the meeting at his new garage and workshop. Nicknamed "The
Garagemahal", his shop is really nice with several square feet and lots
of lighting. With room to easily work on two cars and two large
electronic work benches in the back, the newly built structure is the
envy of every club member.
The highlight of this month's meeting was the awarding of the "Louisville Electronic Homebrewer's Club
Certificate of Excellence" to the oldest founding members,
Jack Bell and Bill Latta. Unfortunately,
Jack could not be at the
meeting for health reasons. Both Jack
and Bill have been role models to everyone by sharing their
enthusiasm and expertise for Ham Radio and other fields of electronic
homebrew for the past 27 years. Congratulations gentlemen!
brought projects they had constructed. Among them was an
interesting circuit for checking modulation on your SSB rig, built by
Bill Scott. Jeremy
Schotter presented one of his school projects, a rather complex,
infrared remote control demo circuit. Another handy project was
protection circuit designed by Darrell Darby that should lessen the
of smoke he creates in his workshop.
A bunch of friends, having a great time
was behind the camera when he took this group shot at the end of
the meeting. Although a good turn-out, this is less than half of
next time, our prayers are with Jack Bell for a speedy recovery!
