The Wonderful World of 3d Printing
by Ben von Handorf, KN4COI, and Christian Bravo, W4ALF
Christian and Ben will discuss 3D Printing Basics and possible applications to Ham Radio. Questions addressed will be: What is 3D printing? What Do I need to do 3D print at home? Tools, websites, good printers to start with? They will also have a couple printers at the meeting for folks to see and many items printed that can be used in ham radio! They plan to set up a "Live Print" for folks to observe.
Many thanks to Rodney Kincaid and Trevor Evans, both of Owen Electric, and Carter Greene of H-D Electric, for an excellent demonstration and lecture on electrical safety. "LOOK UP and LIVE! Watch for Overhead Lines."
Also, thanks to the Ft. Mitchell Fire Department for providing the location for this informative meeting.

Restraint Urged in Response to 2-Meter Reallocation Proposal
Published 07/06/19 on ARRL.org
Representatives of International Amateur Radio Union (IARU) member-societies in Europe are advising restraint in the wake of a proposal to consider the allocation of 146 – 148 MHz to the Aeronautical Mobile Service (AMS) at World Radiocommunication Conference 2023 (WRC-23).
“All IARU member societies have been briefed on a common position and messages for Amateur Radio,” Regnault said. “This message is not helped by the many wrong messages abounding on social media. IARU represents Amateur Radio in the various CEPT forums and ITU, and [it] will fight to maintain the best position it can for Amateur Radio. Progress will be slow, but I am hopeful that, in the end we will get a good result.”
