Because we cannot meet in person right now, there is a weekly Zoom meeting that is open to any amateur radio operator or anyone that is interested in amateur radio. This is not a club sponsored event and is open to everyone. It happens every Wednesday at 6:30pm EDT and we go to at least 8:30 and sometimes longerMore Info

There are several people looking at locations for “Field Day” with VP Ben Nardi taking the lead. It was noted that “exposure” of the club activity in a public venue, with easy access is more important than number of contacts, while both are important, exposure to the public is much better for us as it promotes interest.
Also discussions of potential additional activities will I am sure will happen.
We look forward to seeing as many of our current members there, as this should prove to be an interesting meeting, and concerns the FARC moving forward.
More details to follow.
