    We've started our membership drive for 2019. This year, we've got two gift packs (including PR-77D headsets and swag) that were kindly donated by Heil Sound. They'll be given away to two members!
    The first gift pack will be drawn at the January 2019 meeting, and will go to a lucky member* who has joined or renewed for 2019 by December 31, 2018.

    The second gift pack will be drawn at the April 2019 meeting, and will go to a lucky member* who has joined or renewed for 2019 by March 31, 2019.

    If you join or renew by December 31, 2018 you'll be automatically entered in both drawings. Double your chances to win!

    You've got two options to join or renew:

    We hope you win!

    And if you don't have one of our shiny new badges yet, they're still only $10 for pin or magnet back. You can order those at the meeting or here.


    * 2018 and 2019 board members excluded.

    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!
