We’ll talk about these important fun and fund-raising events at the club meetings. Remember, we can’t do it without your help.
Each month we look forward to interesting Ham Radio-related “Tech Talks” prior to our meetings. (We’ve got another good one for March.) The talks can be about anything that would be interesting to our members. Electronics, communications, weather, home-brew projects, noise abatement, antenna projects, emergency communications, contesting…you get the idea. Please consider sharing your experience and knowledge with us by giving a “Tech Talk”. Let me know if you’re interested.
The Wisconsin QSO Party is Sunday March 10 from 1:00 to 8:00 pm CDST. This is a great opportunity to get on the air and try your hand at contesting. The stated objective is, “Everyone works Wisconsin. Wisconsin works everyone. Everyone has fun!” Get all the details at 
As always, please contact me with any questions or suggestions about our club.
