Forum Topic – “On-line Testing” Chris N6FR, from California, will discuss the opportunities and challenges of online testing.  In the age of COVID-19, Amateur Radio licensing has successfully gone online and remote.  This is a brief review of his personal experience taking the Amateur Extra exam online in November 2020, with some links to useful resources and tips for getting ready for this unique testing environment.  Time: 7:00-7:30 pm

Main Presentation Topic --  “Energy Choices” Bob, WB4APR (Inventor of APRS) will return to VWS to discuss his recent ARRL Publication "Energy Choices for the Radio Amateur" which covers the gamut of solar and emergency power for the DIY experimenter and Ham Radio operator.  He will show us how to integrate various elements (solar panels, standby emergency generators, and battery systems) to achieve a reliable and resilient electrical power system.  He will reveal the unique secret why the cost of energy storage is, and will continue to plummet, and will note that solar panels cost less than 10% of what they did 10 years ago. Time:  7:30-9:00 pm
