New information regarding the COVID-19 Virus and related closings, cancellations and recommendations has been rapidly evolving. I have also been contacted by several members who where either unable to attend or were concerned over the meeting tomorrow.
With that said, and out of an abundance of caution, I have decided to cancel tomorrows meeting. I do apologize for the late notice and for any inconvenience. Because this decision was reached so let please take a moment to ensure any fellow members that you have regular contact with are aware of the cancellation.
Sorry for the inconvenience but we want to look out for our members.

We discussed our contact efforts with VP8PJ over the past few days. According to their plan, they went QRT as we opened our net.
John W5ODJ called the 10M net on 28.405 MHz with check-in from Chris W4PMP. I was able to join the conversation late, when I figured out a work-around for the poor performance of the G5RV on 10 meters.
Please join us next week at 8:00PM on Thursday. 73 de Dave KE4S
