We generally find equipment randomly coming through the door for repair and/or calibration. SARC is blessed to have rather extensive test equipment/parts and more importantly are blessed with several members with really good technical skills to find and solve circuit challenges.
Over the years there have been many pre-organized construction projects that include battery chargers, patch-cable assembly of various lengths, Fox Hunt Attenuators, Antenna fabrication, and even repaired an electric razor that wouldn’t function! We don’t do TVs or HiFi (consumer electronics) for the most part but have allowed limited bending of the rules that allowed some folks who brought-in their non-Ham items for scrutiny and resurrection.
The Project Proposal Process originates during Business Meetings to get an indication on the club’s level of interest before we start PCB layout and parts procurement.
