W6TRW General Meeting

Tuesday December 10, 2019 @ 5:30pm

QTH: Roundtable Pizza, 4330 Redondo Beach Blvd, Torrance 

Jeff Orenstein, KK6TIN:

“How a Robot Can Use Sound to Navigate Underwater

Fact: The salty ocean is not a RF-friendly environment. Radio-based technologies, such as GPS cell phones do not work, once you go a few feet underwater. Visible light rarely makes it beyond 1000 feet.

So how do underwater robots see, navigate, and communicate?

Answer: We will find out through the examples of student-built “robosubs”, named Dory and Flo.

Jeffrey Orenstein (KK6TIN) received his license in 2015.

 

Pizza and conversation at 5:30 PM; Speaker and club business starting at 6 PM. 

The Monthly W6TRW General Meeting is a great place to meet other club members and to ask and answer questions about your radios, local repeaters, and all other radio-related topics.
