*Item from the HamFest .. IF you know if you or someone that purchased some Baofeng radios from N8KQS, they may have the wrong chargers.. It was pointed out that the 5 watt radios had some 8 watt chargers and vise versa . The 5 watt chargers are square cornered where the 8 watt chargers have rounded corners and do not make good contact for charging. Replacements are available on a swap basis.

CALENDAR OF EVENTS..

July 14th Thursday, Mike & Key Club Meeting – 7PMSt. Norbert College, Science Bldg, 4th floor
Here we are at the middle of the calendar year already.. at least it seems to have arrived faster this year.. A seemingly different weather pattern with windy days and lower humidity (except today, of course).
It may be a good time to check to see what is ahead before school starts and the football schedule comes out… It still amazes me how that influences stores, weddings, trips, parties and even church services.
1. A number of years ago, someone noticed that there was a National Lighthouse Day on August 7th every year. There were even Special Events for that in QST. An idea was born.. we could do that too.. and we did… This year – it is on a Sunday. Want to give it a try??
There are two lighthouses right here on the river.
If you go toward Bay Beach
Amusement Park.. then go Northerly on North Irwin Ave alongside the park it turns into Bay Beach Road. When you get near the end of the road, there is public boat landing on the left and just past that, is the Green Bay Yachting Club.
Within their property are the two Grassy Island Range Lights. National Numbers #334 & #339.
Two years ago, 2 million dollars were spent on renovations which is quite evident.. You can visit there on Tuesdays from 5PM to 7PM when the gates are open.. On Aug. 7th, there is an Open House from 10AM to 5PM.. bring the family.
2. As August rolls near and you can still hear the corn growing at night, it brings thoughts of roasting corn on the grill or fire pit.. Picnics… Club Picnic??
A suggested location has been put forth. The Village of Hobart has another park a little North of where we were. It is the Four Seasons Park. It is located on 40 acres. Lots of room, no doubt. A new shelter.. But if you get an opportunity, take a ride there and look it over.. like everything else, “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder”.
This might be brought up at the Club meeting this week..
Out West Mason to Overland Dr turn right.. to Four Seasons Lane.
