 As you may see, if you are purchasing anything via Amazon, switch to Amazon Smile and set the charity to the Green Bay Mike & Key club.. then they will send a percent of the purchase to the Club.. without an additional cost to you.  Thank you to those that are already doing it
 How many times have we come across some “noise” on some of the bands and if we have been using FLdigi, would like to know what mode to set it for.  Is it PSK31 or Olivia or even RTTY.. this web site link has a lot of the answers and you will be surprised on the wealth of other information it has .. another tool of reference perhaps…
