Amateur Radio is a great hobby. It is fun and educational. Perhaps more importantly,
it provides a means of communications in emergencies when other systems are
inoperative or overloaded. For fun, and for your safety and the safety of your family,
friends, and community, consider getting your Amateur Radio license this year.
Please contact any club member if you are interested. We are here to help.
