  President's Notes
Chris VK3QB September has come and is nearly gone. When I look at what I have done over the last wintery months, it feels like there isnít a lot to report on. But, when you think about the Mid-Year Dinner at the Hastings Marina, our Hamfest and other Club Hamfests, Pub nights, Guest speakers, working bees and prac nights and all the conversations on the radios at night, you realize that we have had a busy winter. Letís keep the momentum going!!

  Working Bee and BBQ Christening
On Saturday the 6th of September a small group of members attended the working bee at the Club shack to fix up the Off Centre Fed Dipole (OCFD) which had come down some time earlier. We thought that it was a bit unusual as we had recently worked on this antenna and all looked good. After working on the balun for a while, fitting new fly leads to connect to the dipole arms, the antenna was hoisted up again and restored to its operating position.

  Low Cost 10Mhz Frequency Standard
This led me to investigate OCXO's to see if they would suit my needs. First was to see if they met my stability requirements. A typical 10Mhz OCXO has a stability of 5x10-10 This is Ī5 mHz drift per second on a 10Mhz signal, well withinmy requirement of 0.5hz over 2 minutes. The reason I need this stability is for WSPR digital which requires a very stable clock signal.

  Sensors and Sensibility
Generally speaking, there are two basic categories of sensor device. There are sensors which simply collect information for humans to observe and there are sensors which use the information to make decisions automatically. A thermometer on the wall showing outside temperature may be a passive device which could prompt an observer to put on an extra jacket before venturing outside. An active thermometer sensor can tell your kettle when to stop boiling, shut down your car engine or activate a fire sprinkler system.
