RMS Titanic and Amateur Radio

450px RMS Titanic 3

Presented by Skip Youngberg - K1NKR

Our July presentation comes to us via SKYPE from Tyngsboro, Massachusetts. Skip, K1NKR, a long time ham from New England, has put together a great presentation about the Titanic and the role that disaster played in what we now know as amateur radio.
Skip is mostly on weak-signal VHF and occasionally on the HF bands and recently has ventured into fast scan high definition digital TV on 70cm. Not many hams have pursued this and Skip is only one of two DATV operators in the Northeast.

This presentation promises to be unique so don’t miss this month’s Member Meeting. See you there.
