Next Meeting – March 21, 2019 – Memories of HCJB

The next QRA meeting will be held on March 21st 2019 at the Reading Senior Center, 49 Pleasant Street, Reading, MA.  This month’s speaker will be Harry Chase, WA1VVH.  He will be talking about his memories of HCJB, a shortwave station in Ecuador.  He made several trips there as a volunteer to set up broadcasting equipment, help with technical issues, and eventually help decommission the stations.

He will also be presenting an awesome slideshow, that will include photos of transmitters, antennas, and other broadcast equipment.  Some of these transmitters could reach 500 KW.  He will also have some images from around Ecuador that showcase the landscape and the culture.

This will be a great presentation and all are welcome and encouraged to attend.
