Reminder - Club meeting for January - special program at Norton Shores Library
- The Muskegon Area Amateur Radio Council is pleased to present a
special program on January 4, 2007, at the Norton Shores Public
Library, 705 Seminole Rd, Norton Shores, Michigan. 7 p.m. sharp! The
program will be presented by David Clow, CEO of Harding Energy, Inc.,
a world leader in rechargeable battery technology.
The public is welcome to attend this program. Bob, N9AUY, pulled
this program together for us and has also invited his radio controlled
aircraft club to attend. We think there will be an excellent turnout.
Many in the public, who don't know any better, think that ham radio
is dead. Help us prove them wrong! There has been no decision yet on
a talk-in to the library location, BUT if you make a call on the local
.94 repeater, someone will guide you to the library. It's not
difficult to find.
Here is some information from Harding's website
"Harding Energy Inc. was founded in 1987 by local businessmen and
physicians in the western Michigan area. Lead by Doctor Nicholas
Pietrangelo and his relationship with Stan Ovshinsky, inventor of
Nickel Metal Hydride technology, Harding was one of the first
companies to obtain a license from Energy Conversion Devices (ECD) to
manufacture and distribute NiMH batteries and battery assemblies."
"Harding has evolved from a single line cell manufacturer to a global
battery solution provider. Products range from single cells that are
distributed to assemblers for battery pack manufacturing, to the most
complicated smart battery technology solutions coupled with
intelligent chargers. Harding has 100 different cell sizes making them
one of the largest cell providers in the world with production
capabilities exceeding 3,000,000 units per month. Harding offers
Li-Ion, Li-Polymer, Ni-MH, charging systems and smart boards to
complete their product line."
"Not only is Harding a world-class manufacturer, but also their staff
is extremely well versed and has many years experience in the
electronics and battery industry. President and CEO, David Clow has
been in the electronic industry in excess of 30 years and brings a
global knowledge to Harding. With his several years of experience
matched with his education, he brings a tremendous amount of resources
and talent that is necessary to run and orchestrate the departments
within the Harding Corporation."
