     I do not think I can say enough about the hamfest.. 
The weather was super cooperative. The attendance was great… 
To have made this all happen, thanks have to be sent out to: 
     Our Savior Lutheran Church – Pastor Dave Hatch, N9ZRT and Randy, W9HAM. A Great venue! 
      Our commercial vendor, Tower Electronics, Jill, KB9PZF and Scott Cole, KB9AMM 
     Thank all of you that rented tables and trunk sales spaces. 
   Now when I get to the club members, I cannot list them all because I will surely miss someone . The Hamfest Committee really worked well together.. The parking crew out there all day.. the sign crew got the area covered -- the talk-ins didn’t lose anyone . . the prize group with the announcing.. the food people with all the pastries and beverages with a barista to help. The VEs pulled off another great session.. 
      Hats off to those that came on Friday to set up and to those that stayed at the end to tear down.. Thanks to those that donated items to give as prizes or to sell with the funds to go to the Club. To those that brought their personal items to help .. the PA, the tape, markers, buckets, etc.. The Trunk Sales area went over expectations in number and quality.
     There were a lot of comments requesting to do this again next year.. I enjoyed it .. hope you did too..
   For the financial portion of the event, you will need to attend the Club meeting.. this Thursday.. I hope to have pictures from the event on the K9EAM.org site.

 Siren Test Net 
   We are continuing to check the sirens to see if they are working or have been repaired.. If you check one that shows it did not work, please let us know if it has been repaired. Send me an email or on the Siren Net on the second Wednesday of every month led by KD9HJJ at 11:45 to Noon on the 147.12 repeater. The list of sirens are attached to this email… Need to know if it sounds and turns..

  Field Day
         Field Day is coming up faster than we think.. It is a good time to see if you are prepared to operate the radio in conditions other than home… To operate during emergency conditions. 
   Is your equipment transportable? The Club will have the EComm trailer there, but to operate more stations, some will have to bring transceivers from home with power supplies.. come early and help put up the antennas.. 
    Transmitting begins 1800 UTC Saturday and ending at 2059 UTC Sunday. More in the next newsletter . 
  Stay radio active
