Activities and Calendar


Monthly Meeting

Our monthly meeting is held on the first Saturday of most months.  A few months have dates or location changed for special events.  Our December meeting is suspended in favor of a dinner party for the members.

Next meeting will be November 2.

The meeting starts at 9:00 AM, social time starts around 8:00 AM, and after the meeting or 10:00 AM whichever is later there is time for presentations or discussions.  These can be technological, historical, or personal in nature, and you do not have to be a member to attend. Have a question about Amateur Radio, have another hobby or interest that you can give a talk on, or just want some extra time to discuss anything, we can give you time to get them done.
