During our May meeting we discussed our Field Day 2011 plans, Ed, W1OKH, gave us an update on the CTE Remote Base project and we had a great round table discussion about the hobby and the challenges we face attracting newer members. Mark and Linda Robinson, N1MR and W1MP, brought in this beautiful Hallicrafters SX-17 receiver, pictured above. This receiver has been restored and donated to the club by Lloyd, W1CX. Thanks Lloyd!

Ed has made some excellent progress with the CTE remote base project. He has recently been very successful controlling the remote base using LogMeIn Remote, a service that allows you to have access to your home PC from anywhere. Ed said he was able to connect to the remote base and tune 20 Meters from his Android Smart phone using the LogMeIn Remote app. Amazing!

Next month our meeting will be held over the air on the 146.610 repeater on Friday, June 17th. Please tune in and join us!
