    Bring out your homebrew construction project to have a go at winning the annual Blackwood Cup (which has been fought over since the early 1930s).  Note that this has moved from October back to September so that it doesn't conflict with the Branch involvement in the Wellington Maker Faire in October (and our entry into CQWW).

    This is a practical step-by-step demonstration from Mike ZL1AXG showing how to put together a hotspot for your shack.  Malcolm ZL2UDF showed off his hotspot back in April.  While this is a different configuration the principles remain the same.

    If you plan to add a hotspot, Mike will provide a list of component modules required (and suggested sources) a couple of months in advance of this session.
