Vice-President N5ZKF

  • Our next meeting is 21 December at the Red Cross office.
    • We will hold officer elections; However, we still need a nomination for Vice President. Please contact Mike Wisby (KA5HIA) or Harold Turbyfill (KG5SDG) if you would like to serve or if you would like to nominate someone you think would be a good fit for the position.
    • Unless there is a special request, there will not be a VE Test Session before the meeting. The next VE Test Session will be before our meeting in February.
  • Save the date of 11am on January 18, 2020 as our annual Bryan ARC lunch meeting at C&J BBQ on Texas Ave.
  • ARRL has several event stations coming soon. Check their website HERE for a complete list.
    • 01/04/2020 | Kids Day
      Kids Day is designed to give on-the-air experience to young people and hopefully foster interest in getting a license of their own. It is also intended to give older hams a chance to share their station and love for Amateur Radio with their children.
    • 01/01/2020 – 01/31/2020 | 10th Anniversary CWOPS Club
      Click the link for all the details.
  • Early renewals starting at the December meeting and again at the January meeting. Please renew your ARRL membership through the club as the club will get a “kick back”.
  • Tuned around on 20M this week and while propagation was not great, still heard several phone conversations as well as CW. Encourage you to get on the air and exercise your privileges.
