Hi Everyone, Wow, what a great meeting we had last month. The presentation on DMR was truly interesting, entertaining, and thorough.

I will be on vacation and miss the October meeting but by the time I return, I expect the new DMR repeater will be up and running. Thank you to Arnold for loaning us the DMR repeater...

It’s fitting that amateur radio celebrates International Lighthouse and Lightship Weekend every August to promote awareness of these structures’ unique architectures, histories, and needs for preservation.
