The hamfest will be taking place on March 2nd, 2019, from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm at the Betcha Bingo hall in Irving. Help with set-up, take-down, and security will be needed. We also have a Lecture and Lab this month, on Saturday, February 23rd. Bring $15.00, your soldering tools, and your thinking cap…and you, too, can build your own digital multi-meter using instructions written only in Chinese. We’ll be in the 3rd-floor community room of the Dallas Medical Center at 10:00 am.

Besides those great local events, you can also look forward to a few contests next weekend: there are QSO parties in both North and South Carolina, as well as the CQ WW 160-meter SSB Contest, for folks with big ambitions on the top band.
