Field Day 2016 planning meeting

Don't forget! We're having a Field Day planning meeting on Sunday 6 Mar from 1300-1400. Join us for the meeting and stay for the tower session immediately following.

We still need someone to be the lead for Equipment, Operations and Safety. Please help us fill those positions, particularly if we're going to shoot for a 10A station this year. Let's get this going!

Climb safety and tower maintenance/inspection training

We'll be holding our semi-annual tower climb safety and tower maintenance/inspection training session on Sunday 6 March from 1400-1600. We'll talk about climbing the tower safely, safety gear, what to look for when inspecting the tower and what maintenance we can perform.

All are welcome to attend even if you are not planning to climb the tower. If you want to help inspect, including being part of the ground crew, you need to attend.

Please bring a flash drive if you want soft copies of the handouts and presentation.

Come join us for an interesting session!

Santa needs an XYL

Don't tell Mrs. Claus, but Santa is looking for an YL/XYL to radio in during a Christmas event. The Catholic Daughters of America are hosting a charity event for kids from 9-11:30 on December 12th in Annapolis. One of the organizers would like to have a willing XYL call in to Santa sometime around the middle of the event. Kind of an interesting twist on the visit from St. Nick, may get some youngsters exposed to ham radio at an early age! If you can help out, please contact George Coyle, WA3PKW, at
