May Meeting - My Electric Car by VE3LC


Norm VE3LC will be presenting on his experiences with his Hydundai IoniQ, a fully electric car he recently purchased. Norm's substantial expertise in all things electronic will no doubt lead to a fascinating journey into the future of personal transportation. 

Arthur VA3BIT will be presenting an after action report on the CN Cycle for CHEO which happened on Sunday May 5th

There will be a short slide show on the state of the VA3ODG-VE2CRA MMDVM/BBHN working group's activities.   Pictures from Camp Fortune of our existing repeater site, the proposed augementation of the Amateur Radio services that will be made available and the design considerations for upgading a BBHN backhaul link for data and command/control of the repeaters.

OARC has recently received two MMDVM dual-radio HATs for RaspberryPI designed by Florian DF2ET which will be on display during and after the meeting.

These devices have the multimode digital voice modem with a separate 10mW transmitter (10dbm for those who still have a slide rule) and a receiver with as yet uncharacterized sensitivity; as well as being a Tier-2 DMR compatible hotspot, this device is able to be configured to mimic the behaviour of a MMDVM repeater stack, yet the entire mechanism is only the size of a pack of playing cards. 
The working group is using them as a test bed to develop the software configuration for the end-state MMDVM repeater to be installed at Camp Fortune later this year.
