Vice-President N5ZKF

  • We will have a VE Test Session on (10/19/2019) starting at 8am before our meeting starts at 9:30am. Bring your radio “Go Boxes” for a show and tell after our regular business meeting. Bring what you have whether it is a 8 rack top of the line Go Box or your HT in a backpack. We will also have “Radio in the Park” following our meeting. Radio in the park will be in Tanglewood park off of Carter Creek Pkw between 29th St and Villa Maria. Bring your equipment and come get on the air or just come hang out. Have your HAM radio “elevator speech” ready as the public is generally curious as to what we are doing. Its a lot of fun!
  • Wont be in town for the meeting. Will need someone to make sure the coffee gets made for the meeting.
  • Big thank you to the people who have volunteered to be mentors/elmers and for volunteering for the nominating committee. We could still use more volunteers so if you are interested, please contact Phil Gates (N5ZKF).

Announcements / Comments

John “Pocat” Walpole (K5ZY)
* Great time at the Belton Ham Fest. Huge crowd, good shows and the weather was great. Had a lot of fun.

Connor Farrell (WG1GEM)
* Thursday 10/10/2019 at 7:30pm, W5AC will be having their October meeting. Come see the shack and join the meeting.

Don Ling (WB5CKO)
* space weather forecast is not so great. No sunspots for 28 of the last 30 days and that will continue through the end of 2019. So now is a great time to get up a 40M antenna!
