Announcements of the Week: 04-02-2019


Our next club meeting, on April 2nd, 2019 will be Old Timer’s Night! This is always a fun night where our most experienced hams share why they got into the hobby, what’s kept them involved, and tips on mentoring others.

And don’t forget: Texas State Parks on the Air is coming up on April 13th and 14th.

There are several operating events coming up. If you enjoyed the Light Up 2-Meter Simplex event, you might want to try the VHF Spring Sprint on Monday, April 8th. The Italian QRP Club Quarterly Marathon is now in progress, through 4/8/19 UTC. This coming weekend will feature the unusual 31-Flavors PSK contest, Florida State Parks on the Air, and QSO parties in Mississippi and Missouri.
