The President's Message…November 2016 
The leaves are turning color and beginning to fall as the temperature drops; it’s that time of year once again. Amateur radio operators will be checking over their equipment and backup power sources for the winter months in the event they are needed to help out during a storm or other emergency situation. Be sure to check your shack before it’s needed.
Our last VE testing session produced 6 new licensed operators as well as the club’s youngest member.
Our last VE testing session produced 6 new licensed operators including the club’s youngest member. Special congratulations to Amy Genz KM4YRP daughter of Brady, KM4TKU and brother of Tim, KM4TKV. Well done. What a great hobby for a family to enjoy.

The club has decided to pursue the purchase and construction of a local “Simplex repeater” to service this area. This activity is in the research stage but the group is excited about the possibility of stretching our simplex signals. We will keep you posted as this activity develops.

There will not be a business meeting for the month of December as we use that time for our annual social dinner for members and spouses. Our next regularly scheduled meeting will be on Thursday January 5, 2017 so please join us.

As some of you already know the club is enjoying our “Ragchew Net” Thursday evenings at 7:00 PM on 145.580 MHz. We are all sharing our radio skills concerning topics such as antenna building, station operation, station setup, operating practices, project ideas, and more in a relaxed somewhat informal friendly get-together. The schedule is on our website calendar. Also, included are schedules of other nets on other bands you may be interested in. If you don’t see your favorite net listed, let John, K4EBS know and he will post it on the calendar.
There is a new addition to our website namely a link entitled “Ham ‘Stuff’ For Sale”, where you can list items you may have to sell.(You can also click on the image).
