The President's Message... January 2017

The New Year is off to a good start as we had a large turnout for Thursday night’s meeting.
Our meeting, in part focused on our accomplishments over the past four years of the Club’s existence which was enhanced by us viewing a wonderful video "2012-2016 ...having serious fun" that John, K4EBS created. For those who were unable to attend the meeting the video may be viewed on our website click here. I was truly amazed at all we accomplished during that time. Yes, we are “having serious fun.”

Bill Pond, NOWP was our guest speaker for the evening with a presentation concerning “Linked Repeaters.” Our County’s Sheriff, Steve Smith was also in attendance to listen to the presentation. In times of a disaster or extreme emergency it’s important for the Sheriff to be aware of the capabilities of the amateur radio community in the event we are needed to assist his office with an alternate means of communication.
Next month’s guest speaker will be Sid, WA4MBS who will present information about a “Radio Build Kit.”
Remember our weekly Thursday night simplex “Rag Chew” on 146.580 at 7 pm. Hope to hear you in there.
Our next VE test session will be Jan. 21st, at the Library in Stanardsville, 12:30 PM.
See our website for this and other future sessions. Click here
May the New Year bring good health and happiness to you and your family.
Bill, K4FZE
