Kip Moravec, AE5IB, is putting together a 'Digital Tuesday' meeting in the Plano area of North Texas. The idea is to be have a gathering similar to the Digital Wednesday that the Austin Development group holds.  While WiFi will probably be our main interest we'd be happy to divert to other things like packet, WinLink, APRS, and maybe even some HF digital modes.  Who knows!!?

If you'd be interested in attending please email Kip at kip@kdream.com or me, Rusty, at kd4wlz@gmail.com.

More details available as we make them up! :-)

-Rusty-

P. S.  Current thinking is that we'll be meeting more than once a month.

[OK, we're getting the ball rolling now! This is Kip's announcement.]

Digital Tuesday is a special interest group that is interested in HSMM-MESH, Winlink, and APRS. While we will be affiliated with the Plano Amateur Radio Klub, you do not have to be a member of PARK to participate in Digital Tuesdays.

Since this is the first meeting, we will discuss how we want to go forward, and how often we want to meet.  The options we are looking at for how often are once per month on the first or third Tuesday, twice per month on the first and third Tuesday, or one Tuesday and also meet at the monthly "PARK at the park".

Rusty AE5AE is going to talk about the configuration files in the HSMM-MESH software, and how you can customize them in ways that is not possible from the menu system.  You can bring your HSMM-MESH router and follow Rusty in editing the files, or we can help load the latest HSMM-MESH software into the router.

I also want to have a "show and tell" session, so bring what you are working on in the HSMM-MESH, Winlink, or APRS areas. I envision the meetings as a way for the group to get up to speed in different areas of digital communications quicker.

I would like to have mini-briefings (5-10 minute) each time on different areas by the members. One member decides he wants to figure out one problem, and then shares it at the next meeting in a little briefing.

So the first one will be at 7:00 p.m. March 1, 2011, at 299 Connor Lane, Lucas Texas 75002. Follow the driveway to the backyard gate, and there is a pool house in the back yard. That is where we will meet.
