*** ADDRESS CHANGE***
Our Treasurer reported that the US Postal Service has sent
their annual bill for our PO Box.. But the price has grown beyond what is felt
to be reasonable $194 per year. This was presented to the membership at the
last meeting. As most of the usable mail is payments for dues, the membership
voted to change the official mail address to be the same as the Treasurer’s.
You will see it on the Header of the Club letter. 3004 Quarry Park Dr #10, DePere,
#### CLUB HAMFEST ###
Be sure to check the
K9EAM.ORG website for the flyer. This event is our big one! June 3rd
which is not that far away anymore.
There is still a need for more help to make this the success like it was
last year and perhaps a little better. We have heard that there may be more
commercial vendors this year as well as Tower Electronics.
A lot of those that helped
last year, were present at the meeting last Thursday and signed up again for
this year. A lot of good comments came out.
Still need some signups for different areas including setting up on
Friday afternoon/evening June 2nd and of course- taking down/clean
up at the end. Sign up –Todd W9GRB firstname.lastname@example.org or

A new location for this.
Four Seasons Park in Hobart. One way of getting there from the center of Green
Bay, is to take West Mason Westward until you reach Overland Road. Then go
North on Overland Road a few miles until you get to Four Seasons Drive on the
left. Here are some pictures.
The Club EComm Trailer will
be there. It has a Kenwood TS-570 HF radio. There are three 80-6 OCF antennas,
rope, coax, an expandable pole, some stub filters, a vhf/hf radio. The
batteries are found as DOA but have a generator. The Club has purchased two
laptops last year for logging. Logging is very important for this event
If you want to be sure you
are going to be able to operate something
other than phone (voice), you may want to bring something you are familiar
with. Having headphones to keep from interfering with others is important too.
The original purpose for
Field Day, is in case of an emergency, to be able to set up your equipment to
pass messages from an area that has been mostly destroyed from some event. This
gives you a chance to see how portable you and your equipment are.
May 11th–The Tower Room, 4th
floor of the G-M Science Bldg. (elevator) 7PM. (sometimes a Tech Talk at 6:30)
