Meeting Reminder: 13 Apr 2013

Just in case it got lost behind all the other announcements. Same place as usual! (See sidebar at right.)

We could sure use some member pictures, member pictures of events, and maybe use the Comments section to tell us how you got into Ham Radio; to help get new folks interested in the hobby. Or we could post your story from an e-mail?…

Note: The NMARES website is gone for now. Hoping to re-establish it on

Reminder: If anyone has Club News or other things you think important to the members, by all means e-mail them to KF7LTT for posting here.

Jean asked me to pass this on via the website:
