Have you heard? (President’s Message)
August 21st meeting...
Thanks to Leon Jurczysyn, K8ZAG, for giving us a HAMNET update at the Elmer Hour. We have close to 30 participants now. The installation of the first backbone node at the Sheriff's Annex at 466 and Morse has energized the project.
A BIG TVARC welcome to Doris LeFavour, WB8KDY, for her election as Treasurer at the Special Election. Many thanks to Chuck Varwig, W4CRV, for his service as Treasurer since last October.
John Ellis, NP2B. moderated a very informative program on HF rigs. The K3 and the Flex were featured, but the conversation covered a lot of other radios and related equipment.
John also had letters for our signatures to our representatives supporting HR 4969 (Amateur Radio Parity Act). These will be sent as a group to ARRL for submission to Congress.
