DX Seasons - Ned Stearns AA7A
I gave a talk to CADXA last week titled "DX Seasons" on Zoom and we recorded the program. And then one of the members uploaded the video to YouTube. You might pass this link around to the MARCA members for them to enjoy while they stay at home.
*** Editor's Note: when opening this link, it does NOT start at the begining, Soooo RESET to begining of video ***

Paul Bennett, kd7kdo, gave a presentation, via Zoom, at the May MARCA Membership Meeting on Sim Smith, a very interesting Interactive Simth Chart program.
The presentation can be viewed here ....
There was also a live demonstration of the program which is overviewed on a few slides in the presentation.
You'll probably want to download it, try it, and then sit back and be amazed that its really Free to use.
Enjoy and Thanks Paul for a smooth Zoom presentation.
