Have you heard? (President’s Message)
The August meeting will by Thursday the 21st. Our Going Mobile program by John Ellis, NP2B, on car installations, is evolving as the details get worked out. John is finding a shortage of members to use as examples with most of our mobile operators currently up north. Check back for updates.
The Elmer Hour on July 17th featured our new Camp Villages project. We will be building AM radios with the kids/grandparents, and Larry Russo K3TFU is heading up this project. To see the Powerpoint presentation and the manual for the kit click HERE. Volunteers will be getting a reminder email for this event which is July 30 & 31, 10 AM at Colony Cottage.
Our thanks to Len Klein, K4LFK, for an excellent program on repeaters at the July meeting. Member-generated programs are the most popular. If you have an idea for a program, just let us know.
The July 2014 minutes are available for review: Link to July Minutes
Look forward to seeing you on August 21st.
