Meeting Events


It's an all technical program. Our own Chuck Wood (WD6APP) will give the presentation.
He will be talking about repeaters and how they function, and various other "tekkie" topics that make our hobby work.
This topic will be of interest to all "newer" hams and also to the more experienced hams who have been thinking about setting up their own repeaters.

Let's have a big turnout for this meeting!

All members and visitors are welcome.
