November Meeting - Practical BaoFeng HT Radio Programming 101
Bob Ballard KG5SQJ will teach participants how to manually program Simplex and Duplex memory channels into BaoFeng HT radios using only the radio's keypad (i.e., no computer, no cable nor software is used). Bring your BaoFeng HT radio to program during this exciting and practical hands-on workshop. Also, several Wouxon HT radio models use the same manual programming pattern, however, the menu #'s are different than the BaoFeng HT radio menu #'s. So bring them along too!
The course also explains the basic differences between Simplex and Duplex operations and how CTCSS tones work, which makes it easier to understand the Duplex memory channel programming steps. So if you have one of those mysterious Chinese HTs bring it to the February 16th meeting of Arlington ARC!
See you there!
Remember, bring you BaoFeng HT with you to work along.
