Watch this area for breaking news:
There was excellent attendance at the clubhouse on Saturday, Dec 7, with 12 licensed hams signed in. We had technical and not-so-technical talk around the table, and a few operated the HF radio.
Arrangements were made for the clubhouse to be open all weekend (while 10m is open) beginning Friday evening, Dec 13 for avid 10m contesters. Contact Ty, AE5VR if you would like to get on the air during the contest.
