The next meeting will be January 4th at 7PM via Google Meet (online video). The guest speaker will be Riley Hollingsworth who used to be the FCC liaison to Ham radio but is now part of the ARRL VolunteerMonitor program

We have another special guest scheduled for February. More details to follow… The February meeting will be on zoom on February 1st at 7PM

I will attempt to be there at about 6:45PM to work through any issues. The guest speaker will be first on the agenda.

Club Website:

We have migrated the club website to a new low-cost hosting provider and at the same time, took the opportunity to upgrade security and availability.

The new URL is https://www.ke4ham.org.  If you notice any errors or have site-related questions, email: webmaster at ke4ham dot org.  

Many thanks to Frank Olbrish, KM4CXY, and his son, for hosting and administrating the club site until now.
