  • June 12 - Last meeting before Summer break! This will be our final meeting before the summer break when we take July and August off. As we have done in the past, we will look forward to sharing some great 'Eye Ball - QSO' time to chat with other local hams and this time there will be ICE-CREAM. A couple of lucky attendees will be going home with door prizes. We will hear more about the Field Day Plans and elect our new officers. There will be a 'For Sale' table set up. If you have some gear that you would like to flog, bring it in. We hope to see you all at 7 pm Tuesday June 12 at the Ferndale Public Library.
