FALL IS CREEPING UP - By Michael K2SHF
Hello boys and girls. I hope September finds you all in good health and good spirits. It's time to start stocking up on candy and get those Halloween decorations out. And watch out for those skeletons and fake spiders that will soon be popping up along the neighborhoods.
We are always looking for people to do presentations in our Zoom Room on Thursday evenings. Perhaps you have an abundance of knowledge on a particular amateur radio related topic. We would love to learn from you! Send an email to Dick WB2JPQ. He is good on QRZ.
And start thinking about HamCation in Orlando FL in February. If you book flights and hotels now, you should be able to get cheaper rates. We always do a Meet & Greet at the show and 2024 will be no different. Visit hamcation.com for more information.
