Another great meeting out at the WIA shed at Dural today. Stephen VK2BLK has been busy mixing integrated circuits and valves:
His shortwave radio is really beautiful and has enough dial lighting for the whole room:
At first I thought Brian VK2TOX had built a home brew pacemaker but it turns out to be an electrical treatment for back pain:
We had "show and tell" where I showed my "Retro-75" AM transceiver, but the main presentation was by Mark VK2XOF on circuit simulation with LTspice.
Watching the demo was a great help and I look forward to playing around with this software in the future. The day was well attended.
Despite some worries about the weather turning bad.
The new shed makes it all much more comfortable than the old days. Thanks to everyone who organised this, the hot dogs were great and there was even a home brew electric car on display.
I came away with a Wagner 1729 HF radio at a very good price ($10).
Update: An excellent video by dx2hunt who left a comment:
