President’s Message 

December 23, 2021    At the December meeting the guest speaker was Mike, KQ9P who discussed Mesh Radio and its components.    Mike is very knowledgeable about Mesh and was able to give the members good insight on how to get started setting up a system.    During the next 12 months some of the members in association with the local ARES group headed by Steve, KN4AOB will investigate the possibility of setting up a system within our county as an additional method of emergency communications if needed during a time of emergency.    Amateur Radio Operators are always seeking ways to help their communities in times of need. I suggest that you check with your local club and to determine if they need assistance in planning for emergencies and lend a hand with the task. “Many hands make light work”.   The club’s Christmas/Holiday dinner was a complete success with everyone enjoying the good food and companionship. We had a gift trade with everyone going home with a surprise gift.    Special thanks go out to Dawn and the staff at the Greene Hills Golf Club for the great food, service and the decorations. It was very much appreciated.    I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.  Be well and stay safe.    Bill  K4FZE
