September 20th Presentation

Tonight David Rawley (AE5Z) will be presenting information related to selecting a computer for your shack or mobile operation. With all the possible options these days, it can be tough to decide. Join us to get a fundamental understanding of just why they are asking so much money for whats inside these devices.

For those who weren't present September 8th, our Treasurer was unable to attend and present the Budget for 2019.  So assuming the creeks don't rise (and considering the hurricane Florence that might happen) Justin should be able to do that on tonight.

Newcomers are always welcome! Click here for our official calendar. -- Thursday, Sep 6th: Tonight! Jon Graefe/AE3JG will again give a presentation on Home Owner Associations with respect to amateur radio. It was quite a good presentation given a few years ago and I for one am eager for any updates. -- There are just a few days left to send us or postmark your logs for this past 2018 Maryland DC QSO Party! We would prefer you submit your logs on this page. Thank you! -- The AARC will be hosting their yearly Family potluck picnic at the picnic pavilion next to the AARC clubhouse on Saturday the 22nd. We will be providing Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, and beverages. Please bring something to share. There will also be free swap meet tables. Setup starts at Noon, and we plan to have burgers ready by 1 PM. Please come join us. This picnic is hosted again this year by Jim/W3JLM. Thanks Jim! -- Unless stated otherwise, all events are held at our clubhouse, located in Davidsonville, MD

Saturday, September 22 @ 12:00pm Family club picnic / swap meet at the pavilion.     The picnic was scheduled for noon, then moved to 1:00pm, and now, because the Boy Scouts need the pavillion for their "rocket launch" we have moved it back to noon.  So the plan now is to have burgers and hotdogs ready by noon and we'll run until the party breaks up or till the Boy Scouts get there.     We will begin setup at 11:00am, come early if you have items to sell or want to help setup. Hosted by the AARC and Jim/W3JLM
