2018 St Clair Radio Club Activities

May 2018: 

4 May -

St Louis and Surban Raido Club (SLSRC) announces a series of “Elmering Workshop” sessions beginning Friday, May 4 and continuing the first Friday of each month through September. In October, the popular “Back to the Basics” will begin its series of sessions.
What is “Elmering” in the Amateur Radio community?  "Elmer" is a nickname/ term used to describe someone that can answer lots of your Ham Radio related questions when you are starting out in Ham Radio...or when you have a question about new equipment, operating mode, or just a question you have been wondering about for some time. 

  • Do you have a new radio that needs programming? Bring it to the session.
  • Are you holding off purchasing new equipment and have questions about what to buy?
  • Do you have questions about some of the “new” modes that others are excited about?
  • What is the best antenna for your situation?
  • Do you need help and advice on how to set up your first station, or expand the one you have?
  • How about grounding your station...where do you start?

These are just a few possible questions...you will set the “agenda” as to what will be discussed, so put the first Friday on your calendar for the next 5 months and join us at the SLSRC “Elmering Workshop.”
