Some of the best ham radio apps will: help you locate repeater information as you travel, transforms your smartphone into a HT, provides tools for decoding messages, allows you to predict satellite passes in real time, search call signs on the go, plus a whole lot more. Ham radio apps can and will enhance your enjoyment of the ham radio hobby.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. Now that the 33 + inches of snow that was on my deck is gone and the daylight is getting longer each day, maybe we can all start thinking about spring ?!?!
The winter E skip season has started for the folks who like to play on 6 Meters. Its been open the last 2 weeks with pretty good propagation to the south and mid west primarily during the later afternoon and early evening.
We have an important monthly meeting coming up next Monday Jan 11. We will be discussing our virtual hamfest to be held later in January. The details are in the newsletter. I will be sending out a link to the Zoom session in the next few days. Keep an eye out for it.
