The major theme of the meeting was a presentation by Lutz DK7LK and Ingo KK6EW on the Braun T 1000 SW Receiver. Ingo has recently acquired such a receiver from Germany that had been renovated by Lutz. Lutz showed pictures of Ingo's radio - inside and out. He described the components and their function. On display was the radio circuit diagram.
In its day the Braun T1000 was top of the line in SWL gear.
There followed much discussion of the Braun company and its present status and current ownership and product line.
Following this was sharing of health and welfare reports, Rotary and AR activities.
Birthday wishes were extended to Ed N4EDT on the eve of his birthday.
A typical friendly meeting with great Rotary and AR fellowship.
