  For the October and the November meetings, the meetings will be 7PM and held on the second floor of The Brick House. 500 Grant Street, W.De Pere. This meeting is a very important one with the nominations of those to be on the next year’s Executive Board. This is the first of the nominations. Be sure to read the minutes of the last meeting to catch
up on what else may come up for discussion..
      Nominations will continue at the November Annual Corporation Meeting followed by the Election of the Board. Any proposed  ByLaw changes will be voted on also.  
    Sorry, no Zoom information at the time of this writing … 

Oct. 15th Scouting Jamboree On The Air… J.O.T.A. Modern technology offers Scouts the exciting opportunity to make friends in other countries without leaving home. JOTA is an annual event in which Boy and Girl Scouts and Guides from all over the world speak to each other by means of Amateur (ham) Radio.
The layout has some challenges for our antenni. Can you spare some time to help out??  Hope to have about 6 or 8 of us plus a couple or three stations (Hint- bring radios)   The American Legion, 1708 N Irwin Ave. will be our location this year. If you have some time, stop by and give a hand or information..  9am to ~1Pm 
In 2014, over 1.3 million Scouts, Guides/Girl Scouts participated in JOTA..

    While I am thinking about it,….
  As we all know, there was wide spread devastation in Florida. A lot of people we all know were down there when this went on.. There is one of our members that was able to use his emergency training during this.
 John Kotlarik, NA9J was in contact with Wes, W9WES, and said that he was in a shelter with about 400 evacuees and was busy with his radio .. I think making welfare messages … got to let the folks know that they are safe and where they are..   Thank you John for exemplifying the work of Ham Operators. 

Are we ready, trained for this?? 

Thinking ahead..
