“Ask not what your Club can do for you, Ask what you can do for your Club”
Dear Fellow Members
This is certainly a difficult time for all Americans. I hope that everyone is safe and sheltering in place. However, if you must go out, please be careful and maintain a 6 foot distance and don't forget to wear your mask and gloves. Remember, we are all in this together.
April's meeting On The Air went very well. We had 36 check-ins. I want to thank our Vice President Tony STARR, WA2FZB for doing an outstanding job as Net Control. I do not feel that things will be back to NORMAL come 30 April, therefore we will hold our monthly meeting for May, On The Air once again.
So tune in to our 147.180 MHz plus 600 (PL 131.8) Repeater on Wednesday, 6 May 2020 at 1930 hours. Also you can check-in using the Club's EchoLink node : W2MMD-R. All are WELCOME. If you have the ability to receive 147.180 MHz, but are unable to transmit, Tony will be also taking check-ins on TEN Meters at 28.475 MHz USB.
The 9 May 2020 Tech Saturday is canceled.
Don't forget our TEN Meter Ragchew Net on Monday nights and the TEN Meter Swap Meet Net on the second Saturday of the month 9 May 2020. Tune in to both nets on 28.465 MHz USB at 2000 hours. Net Control will be yours truly KA2OSV (the Old Salty Veteran).
It is a little early to think what Field Day will be like this year. We may be all operating from home. At this point, we will just have to wait and see. For right now, we are still planing on a Field Day Meeting, scheduled for Wednesday, 27 May 2020 at the Clubhouse at 1900 hours. However, I will keep everyone informed if there is any change.
That's all for now. I hope to see you in the pile-ups.
73 es God Bless es Above All Be Safe
