Please Join The Fight

Hi folks,

This weeks AMSAT news included an item advising that Stanford University is now dedicating its “folding@home” distributed computing application to determining the protein binding mechanism of the COVID-19 virus which, it is hoped, would lead to development of a vaccine or other mitigating therapy.  You can find the link easily enough by searching for “folding@home” and picking the link to Stanford’s web site.  Please join the fight.  The more of us volunteering our idle computer time to this effort, the better chance we have at getting a handle on this disease.

OVMRC March Meeting Cancelled.

The Science and Technology Museum has issued a notice to the General Public that its facilities are closed until further notice, presumably due to the COVID-19 virus containment situation. As all facilities are closed, this includes the OVMRC meeting room, therefore the March OVMRC meeting is cancelled by authority relayed to me by Norm, VE3LC, Club Vice-President. We will continue to monitor the situation with hopes that we can resume with the next scheduled meeting in April.

73,

Hugo, VE3KTN.
