The President's Message…August 2016
July has been active with many of us traveling and vacationing here and there.
The Club’s VE testing session on July 30th was a great success with eight people showing up to take a test. It is my pleasure to announce that everyone passed their test. Congratulations to the new and/or upgraded Hams; Tyler Fisher, KM4VWC,Technician, Raymond Franz, KM4VWD, Technician, Curtis Hanson, KD4MVQ, Technician, John Lambert, KW4XA, Extra, Travis Koshko, W3TJK, General, Anoop Madhavan, W3ZEI, David McClain, KM4UHS,General, and Chung Yookyung, KM4VWB, Technician. Special kudos to John Lambert (one of our most recent members) who took all three tests, passed them all and walked out of the test session an Amateur Extra Class licensee.
On August 20th, weather permitting, the GCVARC members and guests are planning an NPOTA picnic in the Shenandoah National Park. If you are an NPOTA Chaser you might want to tune in across the bands and make contact with us. Click here (or the image) for operational details - scroll down the Callsign field and look for K4BRW.
Thank you Brett for passing on your experiences over the years.
