May Meeting Change 2020

Hello Everyone,

With COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing and the quarantine extended to mid May we will be holding our monthly club meeting On The Air again. We will be holding it as usual on May 5th 2020 at 7 pm at your radio in your shack safely at home. We will be meeting on the 145.170 repeater as our nets are usually run on at this time. So please join us on our second on-the-air club meeting.


Evening Net changes

Hello Everyone,
We have started something new and want to see how it plays out. The evening net, After Dinner Net, has been adjusted to a one night a week Net. It will be run on Wednesday nights for the foreseeable future.

Still keeping the same time and frequency. 145.170, which is back to where all our nets are being run. Thank you for understanding and we hope to hear you on the 145.170 at our 8 am First Cup Net Monday through Friday and at 7 pm for the After Dinner Net Wednesday nights only.

New updated scripts will be forthcoming for our website in the next week or so.
