Event Organiser: Sydney PC User Group (SPCUG)
Please note that there is an attendance fee of $5 at all meetings.
For visitors & non-members, first-time visits are free, but for later visits there is a $10 charge.
Members of this group meet each month to discuss programming, with particular emphasis on microprocessor programming, and microprocessor project design.
Some of the projects that members develop are displayed at these meetings.
At the April meeting Martin showed a circuit board he built to run as a RFID card reader. He also discussed a problem with a circuit for a power supply to a servo.
Geoff showed a power supply he bought on eBay. With independently adjustable voltage and current over a range of 0-30v, it was good value at $65.
Alex explained how he obtained an Amateur Radio Certificate. He bought the amateur radio Standard License course from the Radio and Electronics School, http://res.net.au/. The course has a wide range of useful information and tests, and offers a CD giving a good introduction to radio and electronics. As well, he joined the Waverley Amateur Radio Society to learn more about the subject.
A forthcoming meeting of the Ozberrypi meetup group was announced.

Visitors are always welcome.
