Re: Digest for berkeleylug@googlegroups.com - 1 update in 1 topic


     ORCA (Oakland Radio Communications Association)’s Field Day site was at the Horseman Association Arena Off Skyline across from the Chabot Space and Science Center entrance.  I was up there a good bit of Saturday.  The Alameda Club was on a boat.  Not sure where the NALCO (Northern Alameda County site was.  There were about 30 registered sites in the Bay Area and about 1,500 nationwide.

Yes, Pi July is on the 7th.
Also note, this weekend is ham radio Field Day. All across the US and
Canada hams set up mobile stations for a disaster preparation exercise.
The Saturday before the last BerkeleyLUG I went to the electronics flea
market which is put on by the ham radio groups. There I talked to some of
the Palo Alto group. PAARA. They are setting up in a park on the peninsula.
Check paara.org Field day for details.
I am especially interested in satellite communications. It is supposed to
be very easy to download the pictures from NOAA satellites. All with very
cheap devices (RTL-SDR).
Anyways at that flea market I picked up some Thinkpads it off a junk pile.
They all work amazingly. One a cracked screen another a bad keyboard.
So my project this meeting will be install Linux on the Thinkpad w520 and
on an Asus transformer Bay trail tablet.
