John Portune W6NBC will present live remote lectures to your radio club on a wide variety of ham radio topics, at your schedule, using video conferencing/meeting software. Lectures are typically 45 minutes in length.
I do this free of charge as a retiree [from broadcast television], purely for pleasure and personal stimulation. I have no need of another career or a commercial activity.You may choose a topic from the | home page | including any of my articles in QST, or lectures I have given to other radio clubs.
Or, by arrangement, I will be happy to prepare a custom topic of your choosing. You will also find on the home page pre-recorded Power Point Presentations that you may download and use as stand alone presentations.
I present the lectures live from my home QTH in California, using Zoom remote presentation/meeting software. The software you will need for your meeting to receive the lecture is free of charge from: zoom.us See link below. The requirements for taking part in a Zoom remote meeting/lecture are very modest.
After you have selected a topic, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org with your tentative date(s) time and topic. I will get back to you by email.
In your regular club meeting, you will introduce me as you normally do for a local speaker. Zoom meetings are two-way live, just like in a meeting. You can see me in a small box on your screen and I can see you in your meeting. During/after the presentation, your members will be able to ask quesitons and make comments.
If you elect for me to do so, I will arrange for the meeting to be live streamed to YouTube for those who wish to watch at home. This option is your choice.
If you would like to chat before scheduling a meeting, perhaps merely to become more familiar with the process, send an email to: email@example.com and I will send my phone number and a time to call. The Zoom website also has several simple tutorials on how Zoom meetings work with answers to common questions.| home page for topics | | How to set up for a Zoom meeting |
