    The October meeting will begin early - right at 7:00 pm - so we can give as much time as possible to our guest presenter.


    Ned Stearns AA7A will talk about the Baker Island 2018 DXpedition. Baker Island finished up in early July, so we'll be among the first to hear the news.

    Ned is the Vice Director of the ARRL Southwestern Division and always an entertaining speaker. We're glad to have him - join us at the meeting on October 19th - at 7:00 pm sharp!
