Have you heard? (President’s Message)
Please NOTE: We have a new Meeting room. We are now meeting in the MacArthur/Arnold Room.
Last month was an interesting meeting. We had a Skype session with Gordon West, WB6NOA, of Ham Nation. We then had a Power Point presentation by George Briggs, K2DM, about his DXpedition to Dubai.
This month will be a short meeting. Just Added: Our guest speaker will be Gene King, KI4LEH to talk about the new RACES/ACS plan for Sumter County Emergency Management.
Our next classes will be for the General Class License, and will be held in the September-November time frame. Exact dates and times TBA, with the ARRL/VE test session to follow the week immediately after the last class.
