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!
