May 2, 2020 Picnic Update
The Coronavirus has forced us once again to make a change in the picnic.
To insure the health of our members the date of the picnic has been changed to October 24. The place and all the other arrangements remain the same, just the date has changed.
If you would like a refund on your BBQ reservation please email Jim W5IM and he will refund your reservation. Other wise he will carry it over to the October date.
Due to fire damage at our regular picnic site in Beyersivlle the lodge building will not be available. A new site was found in nearby Rockdale. Information is now on the picnic page, with more to come.
New Hams Help
To help new Hams learn the jargon unique to Ham Radio, a list of links has been added to the Link page.

On the air Traffic Training
The response to the on the air training has been good so it will continue until further notice. The training will be held on the first Wednesday and the following Saturday of each month at 9:30 and 12 noon. The training material that will be followed is available on this site under training. Notice: The Traffic handling training has been suspended for the time being due to bad band conditions. Training will be resumed when the band permits.
Also on the Web Site
A new item to the Web Site is a list of first time check ins to the net and those that have been away for awhile. See the QST page for the link. Our thanks to our hard working Net Secretary, Alan N5MSE, for his work in putting this list together and the Net Controls for getting the calls to him.
