There will be a VE Session on September 25, 2016 at UW Space Place at 15:00 central time.
Due to a lack of signups, there WILL NOT be a Technician Class on the weekend of September 24 and 25.
When another class is scheduled, we will post an update.
There will not be a general membership meeting this month. Instead we will be holding the annual foxhunt. Start time is 19:00 at 401 Charmany Ln, the east end of the First Business Bank building parking lot.
The fox will be on 146.465MHz.
The repeater for this will be the 147.150+ pl 123.0.
We hope to see you there!
