Covid-19 and its restrictions has created many challenges for our club and finding ways to interact.  As of our Second Monday Monthly Membership Meeting in Arpril we are back to 300 Hz in the Clubhouse.

The club's VE Team has been diligent in holding the Second Saturday Exam Session for those wanting to test for a new license or an upgrade.

Anyone interested in Amateur Radio is welcome.
