Marc N. Zuckerman – AG7VY Memorial Endowment

During the Annual General Meeting, held Wednesday November 17th, 2021; Charlie Shepard – K7CBS as President of the Las Vegas Radio Amateur Club and on behalf of the Board of Directors and Members of the Club presented the first annual Marc N. Zuckerman Memorial Endowment to Red Rock Search & Rescue. Accepting this donation for Red Rock Search & Rescue was Steve Smith, Vice Commander Medical.

DIY Portable Solar Generator – Rich Daugherty – KC7ZDM shows us what he did during the Coronavirus shut down.

I’m stoked! I just successfully tested my solar generator project. By the time I got round to taking pictures it had topped off my battery bank and shut off current from the solar array.

I designed the system to be totally portable. I can use it to set up a field ham radio station, for camping, or if we had an extended power outage, in the back yard. It could run a small refrigerator and/or a small microwave, etc.  Certainly not an air conditioner by any means
