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.
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.
