VHF Field Day 


President’s message  

 

     WOW!! Good Food, Good Friends, and Ham Radio, it just doesn’t get any better than that! The 75th Anniversary Celebration was a resounding success. I personally enjoyed getting to visit with so many of you that I normally don’t get a chance to. Thanks to everyone who had a hand in pulling it off.

     A Very Special Thanks to Jerry KB7BX and Rick KN6NOC for leading the charge. We were honored with a visit from our Central Valley Section Manager Steven Hendricks who presented the club with a Certificate of Recognition from the ARRL for 75 Years of Service.  

     Don’t forget Summer Field Day is just around the corner. Check our web site on a regular basis to stay informed on any upcoming events. Please feel free to contact me via KD6PAP@gmail.com with any questions, concerns, or ideas.   “Let’s Get Radio Active”
