Monthly Club Meeting

Monthly meetings are for putting faces with the voices we hear on the air, enjoy dinner, and a program.  Presentations offered at the meetings are used to explore aspects of the hobby and expand our knowledge in areas related to Ham Radio.  Members, guests, visitors, and those interested in Amateur Radio are all invited to attend.

The club meets on the last Tuesday of the month except for the months of June and December. Dinner is served at 6:30 PM and the meeting begins at 7:30 PM with a business meeting, then a presentation to follow soon after.

Many of our meetings require reservations for dinner.  Check the newsletter to determine if reservations are required, time they are needed, entrée selections available, and cost; they are likely different from meeting to meeting.  Reservations can be made:

  • Using the online Dinner Reservation form.
  • By calling Marv Grossman - W8AZO.  If there is no answer when calling, please leave a message that includes: your name, call sign (if you have one), phone number, number attending in your party, and their dinner selection(s).

June - Field Day

Field Day is always the 4th full weekend in June.  The June meeting takes place at our Field Day site on Saturday evening.

ARRL Field Day is not a fully adjudicated contest but a time where many aspects of Amateur Radio come together to highlight our many roles.  Some will treat it as a contest.  Most groups use the opportunity to practice their emergency response capabilities.  It is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate Amateur Radio to local community leaders as well as the general public.  For many clubs Field Day is one of the highlights of their annual calendar.

This is an excellent opportunity to bring friends who might be interested in Ham Radio!  The official Field Day site can be found at the ARRL.

July Picnic

The club has a picnic in July to enjoy time outside and the nice weather with our families and friends.  The date is the last Tuesday in July.

October Annual Meeting

This meeting is the same as a regular meeting.  In addition, if a Trustee election occurs, the ballots are counted and results announced.

November Holiday Social

This gathering is to spend time with your significant other, families, and fellow hams.  There is no business meeting or presentation but a game of BINGO with prizes will be played.  The Holiday Social is the last Tuesday in November.  Dinner is served 6:30 PM.  Location will be published in the newsletter.

December

There is no meeting in December.  Enjoy the holidays!
