The President's Message…September 2016
This month’s “NPOTA Picnic” at the South River picnic grounds in the Shenandoah National Park was enjoyed by all who attended. We had several battery powered transmitters operating on various bands with a full array of commercially made and home brewed antennae strung and mounted in all directions. The visitors who stopped by were duly impressed with all the gadgets available for viewing.
Brady KM4TKU provided our September presentation. October's presentation will be SDR Radio 101 by John K4EBS.
Our VE testing sessions are going well at the Greene Co. Public library. Please check elsewhere on this site for information concerning upcoming test schedules (click here). All are welcomed to participate.
Our member list is continuing to grow with our membership now up to 29. If you wish to stop by and visit or join the club please check us out. All are invited to attend. Meeting information (click here) is listed elsewhere on this site.
The Club will have a table at the Ruckersville Flea Market on the corner of Rte. 29 and Rte. 33 in Ruckersville September 24. Proceeds of the sale will be donated to the Club. Come and check us out. Maybe there will be something for sale you just can’t live without.
Be safe and enjoy.
