Dick Norton N6AA speaks at Quartzite AZ “Quartzpause”

Our ARRL Southwest division director Dick Norton had just returned from the national ARRL Board meeting and brings news, information and some of his personal back to the membership gathered in the Arizona Desert. Several Amateurs rigged up an Amateur television transmitter and two meter radio transceiver allowing those of us with a simple television receiver to view/listen to the talk and ask questions or respond via 146.550 simplex. I was able to record the transmitted video with a small video camera so be aware that it is a “Hand-Held” recording. There were some technical difficulties a few of the ATV team some of mine, the audio is marginal, the questionable video centering (my issues) and the presentation is lengthy, nearly one hour.
