Notes: Dave WA3GPM, and Bob AB3GF enjoy sharing the ins and outs of digital communications. There will be many Hams attending that have a lot of experience in many venues. Public service, antenna design, project building, vintage equipment, weather spotting, new technology,
to name a few. We are hoping to have a Fox Hunting (radio transmitter) demonstration.

This is a great opportunity to gain valuable insight, and information from those in our Ham Community. Ham Radio is a great hobby. We enjoy sharing knowledge, and experiences.
