Greetings North Florida Hams! Welcome to the GREATEST HOBBY IN THE WORLD!


Not much going on right now……but it looks like Spring/Summer is back! Wow! Where did the “winter” go?


This is a great time to go out and inspect those antennas, cables, wires, et al that sometimes don’t fare too well in the cold/cooler temperatures. Check those connections too! Spring Cleaning? Absolutely! Do it in the shack too!


As I wind down my tenure as the NFL Section Manger, I look back on how much has happened in the last 4 years (good, and not so good!). Our ARRL membership is about the same in the section as it was last year, but still up several hundred from the start some 4 years back; we have a stellar Newsletter and Web Page, and our various clubs and groups are still active and alive. In my June message, you get the thanks, but I did want to remind everyone that we all count. No matter what part of the Amateur Service you dwell in, you are special.


While I hope to be able to make some more rounds to various clubs before the end of May, my boss at the PD seems to want to make other arrangements for me…..yeah, I’ll get this “retired” stuff right sooner or later! But, you just never know where I may show up!


Please continue to send in the EC Monthly Reports to the NFL Web Page http://arrl-nfl.org/?page_id=4787 unless otherwise notified by me. It’s important to document our activities.


Check out our fabulous NFL Section Web Page http://arrl-nfl.org/ - our spectacular Newsletter (April Issue) is there for all to enjoy!


Get involved, get active, get happy! Stay safe, get on the air, and have fun!!


EVERYONE COUNTS!
