NARRI Breakfast Jan 13, 2018

 The NARRI breakfast meeting was a great time. We had about 20 folks there.
We met at Winchels Pub and Grill at 199 E. Warm Springs, Las Vegas and enjoyed mingling for a couple of hours.
This very nice meeting many of the hams and wives that we meet on the air. These were the hams in attendance:
W7AOR Kent & xyl Chris, NO7E Chris, WB6AMT Earl, K7UPP Mark, K0GKC Gene & xyl Deanna, W7JCA John, KI7OBO Keith, N8HC Glenn, W0MRD Mark, N7HVN Cathy and hubby Art AB7FB, AF7J Tom, N7BZN Scott, K7JST James, KG7KA Loren & xyl Kathy & Bob W7AMC
Sorry if any mistakes made or I missed anyone - please let me know.
2 awards were given to recognize excellence with NARRI. Cathy N7HVN and John W7JCA were awarded nice plaques. 

 A discussion was presented by Tom AF7J and John W7JCA about the digital world. This included demos of the Nano node and a homebrew (the yellow box).
Lots of questions were asked and answered nicely. Loren asked what is the advantage of digital over analog. Lots of discussion but the short answer is that you can do a lot more with digital like private discussions, send text and photos just like a smart phone. Also the quality of transmission is better from repeaters. The difference in audio quality was mentioned but is far outweighed by the advantages.
