Our Next Monthly Club Meeting is: (not a meeting, it's Field Day)

There is NO meeting on Friday, June 23!!! We are meeting Saturday.

Club Field Day operations will be at the Marble Falls Area Volunteer Fire Department. (behind the EMS station at 606 Avenue U, Marble Falls)

Riley will oversee setting up a new station beginning about 10:00 a.m. This is open to everyone to come help with the set-up, but is particularly recommended for anyone who wants to learn how to set up a HAM station. We have new equipment which has been donated to the Club by the estate of Jim Dear. Operations for Field Day will be from noon until about 6 p.m. All are welcome (HAMS should invite any friends who might be interested.)  This is a chance to observe and participate in different modes of operation and to get on different bands. We need to be sure that we have operators present throughout the afternoon to welcome any visitors.

Our monthly meeting will be at 5:00 p.m. on Field Day Saturday. This would normally be our supper meeting and the club will provide grilled hamburgers.  Terry Pardo is helping coordinate food, so if you wish to contribute to supper, please get in touch with him.  (Snacks during Field Day operations would be appreciated.)

In July we return to our normal schedule below

When: Friday July 28th at  6:30 pm. (No ARES meeting)
