UPCOMING LOCAL EVENTS

— Our next general membership meeting will be at the Veterans Memorial Building, 22 W. Broadway, Meridian, ID on February 27, 2019 at 1900. All members and prospective members are cordially invited to attend.

— We will be hosting a class on how to make a J-pole antenna at our February meeting. This will be a good project for beginning operators. If you are like a lot of us, the only radio you have is a handheld. This can cause you to have trouble reaching the repeater. The J-pole antenna will cure that problem.

— We will be hosting a Technician License class at the Veterans Memorial Building on February 7 & 8 from 1800-2100, and Saturday February 9 from 0900-1400. The three-day class will teach you everything you need to know to pass the exam on Saturday the 9th. Contact Rich Dees W7BOI at rjdees@aol.com for more information.

— CERT training will be held for all interested operators at the Veterans Memorial building on February 26 and 28 from 1800-2200 and on March 2 from 0800-1700. Contact Rich Dees W7BOI at rjdees@aol.com for more information.

— Our net is held every Thursday evening at 1900 (except holidays). The frequency is 146.940 for receive and 146.340 for transmit. PL is 100 Hz. All are welcome to check in. Volunteers are needed for Net Controller. Rich W7BOI says it’s fun and easy. He will provide the script and training. Please consider stepping up so he can have a rest once in a while.
