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

Hi Folks,

Greetings this holiday month!

Last month I got to visit with the Lake Amateur Radio Association (LARA) at their annual tailgate in Tavares… was fun.  Even I bought something! If you are in the area next year, make it a point to stop by!  Support your local club functions!  In a few days I will be at the Silver Springs (Ocala) Hamfest and the Orlando Holiday Banquet.  I have invitations to many holiday extravaganzas and will make as many as I can!

I have found a new Section Emergency Coordinator – and most likely some assistants (maybe 2??).  More on this in to come in the new year…….

On an important note -  it’s taken me much introspection and many discussions with some folks over the last few months……but I have decided I am not running for re-election for the next term (July 1, 2018 – June 30, 2020).  After serving the last 5 years (1 year as SEC, and almost 4 years as SM), I feel it’s time for some fresh perspectives and renewed energy.  While I am proud to reflect back on the many positive changes and initiatives that I helped foster, I hope someone will step up to continue the service to the NFL Section and community.  I would also hope the new SM would welcome our excellent Newsletter Editor and Webmaster!!  (Along with many other excellent appointed folks who work diligently and quietly in the background).  With the many events that have impacted our Section in the last few years, everyone should be proud of what we experienced and accomplished.  We all showed, “We Count!”.

Check out our fabulous NFL Section Web Page and read our spectacular Newsletter (December Issue) QST NFL

As always, my best wishes to each of you and your families for a safe and wonderful Holiday Season, no matter what you celebrate.  Remember those not so fortunate.

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


73, Steve WB4OMM
