Our call sign is K6MEP. We invite anyone who is interested in amateur radio to explore our website or attend one of our meetings.
We meet on the second Friday of every month, except in December. Our meetings are held at The Dudley House. Social half-hour begins at 19:00. After a short break, the general meeting begins at 19:30. During the general meeting we discuss club business and have a presentation. After the meeting is adjourned, some members go to Toppers Pizza to socialize. Come by, join us, and share your ham radio interests.
Learn about our history as an amateur radio club.
Radio communication is impacted by space weather. Changes in ionospheric density and structure will modify the path of HF radio transmission or even block the signal transmission completely. Users of the HF radio band (1 to 30 megahertz range) include ham radio operators, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Defense, and commercial airlines.

We had twenty-three attending our monthly meeting via Zoom. Seventeen were club members and five were visitors.
After the meeting was opened at 19:00, President Robert welcomed and thanked all who attended. He acknowledged each person and had a brief status discussion.
At 19:15 Tim Duffy K3LR was introduced and his brief resume was read. Tim presented the topic "Grounding and Bonding” and used a slide show to depict proper use of “earthing”.
After Tim's presentation, several members and guests asked several questions. After the question period was over, Tim was thanked and Robert mentioned the DX Engineering website as well as the many topics that were on the website, as well as the DX Engineering newsletter.
