Rachel Kinoshita KK6DAC, a member of Menlo Park CERT and South San Mateo County ARES will present a very in-depth discussion of batteries for handheld use and also 12 volt portable operations. She made comparisons of different battery chemistries with pros and cons of each and their various characteristics, such as shelf life, current capability, single use/rechargeability, leakage, capacity, and cost effectiveness. The results of Rachel's thorough research and testing will help you decide which batteries would be the optimum choice for your particular application.

The door prize will be $100 and the breakfast cost will be $6.

We need to know how many attendees to plan for, so please RSVP on your city nets or to:

Since this is an all voluntary effort if you could come at 0730 your help would
be appreciated....many hands make light the work. If you have any surplus items,
donations to the raffle table would be graciously accepted.

Please log in if you want to participate in this event.
