The next club meeting on September 3rd, 2019, will be the annual show and tell night! Bring something cool to talk about. It doesn’t have to be unique, and you don’t have to talk for long—you just need to enjoy what you’re sharing. I’ve got a new project in the works…but you can bring something old or new, as long as it’s something you enjoy.

Also, we’ll have a special visitor: John Robert Stratton, N5AUS, the current West Gulf Division Director, will be visiting our meeting. He was appointed to fill out an unexpired term, and now he’s running for his own full term on the ARRL board. He’ll be visiting the meeting to speak to us and answer any questions that we have.

Remember, if you’re available, you should sign up to help at Lifewalk on Oct. 6th, 2019. This is an easy event to get started at, or a fun chance to see your friends and keep up your public service skills.

The contest calendar has several exciting entries this week, including the Hiram Percy Maxim 150th birthday celebration and the WW Digi DX, the first contest dedicated to FT-8 and FT-4. There are also QSO parties in Colorado and Tennessee.
