A Quick Note from KB3FW

Thanks to Charlie Bess, AD5EN, for providing some great content for use in upcoming “This & That” blogs. Please feel free to provide interesting links, humor, or other items of interest for T&T.

Note that today, May 16th, the club has a Field Day Planning Zoom Meeting scheduled for 11 AM. You can get details on the meeting on the club’s calendar or contact me (hnat463@gmail.com).

The planning meetings will establish how many stations we will have on the air, generator availability, food/drink, extra points for our score that we submit to the ARRL, etc.

Field Day is on June 24th and we will have KE4HAM on the air at Lake Somerset.
