The fourth PRO meeting of 2010 will be at Pittsburg Refrigeration, 2507 N Broadway in Pittsburg, Kansas.   It will be held  Tuesday August 17th.  Pittsburg Refrigeration is a blue building at the corner of 25th and Broadway, on the West side.  Wal-Mart, Wendy’s, and Dillons are nearby businesses on the East side of Broadway.  From the East side, 25th street would go across Broadway directly into our front door.  There is plenty of parking on the North side.

Tyler KB0PQP and Dwain W0CL have been working on a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) for the last few months. This UAV and the embedded microcontrollers called Arduino will be the topic of this months PRO meeting. We will try and have a demo flight depending on weather and the status of the UAV. For more information on the project visit for pictures and video.

We are trying to re-vitalize the club with interesting programs on current subjects.   We will try to have monthly meetings, and try to talk about current, interesting topics.   If you have any ideas for topics, reply to this email, or otherwise contact us. All area hams are invited!
