Mike and Key Club Ham Fest June 4th.!!!

 Plans continue to be grafted into a working model for the “swap”. Diagrams, sketches and numbers are put into Excel sheets and Google maps to lay out a flow of traffic.

 A lot of things to consider--  table layout, food, parking, setting up and taking down etc…                              The biggest factor -the people resource. Not the customers – but the volunteers to make this happen. If all those that raised their hand and voted

for this event, volunteered.. no problem…    Please plan now to volunteer for this…  Contact Pres. Paul KBØP, kbØ  


   The Cellcom Marathon is on again this year!! They are looking for 10 radio operators on May 15th from 6AM to 2PM.. (just need 2 more at this time) could be shorter depending which area you will be working with. Radios will be furnished.. You will be operating from inside a large tent with the other operators.. Each operator will be in contact with a couple of the route Med stations reporting need of medical attention… When signing up, pick on the job square and pick “Medical Communications- Amateur Radio” Here is the link to sign up..

  There is a short training a couple of days before the event and a party a week later.. see you there. Lunch and snack provided… 

  CQ Tuesday May 17th… 
 All welcome! Gather around 11:30 at the Bay Motel Family Restaurant.. usually order around 11:45.. come and join in the camaraderie… meet some of the people you may only talk to on the radio..  A lot of knowledge there to tap.
