I hope everyone is doing well and had a great holiday season.
I just wanted to remind you that the January meeting will be on this coming Monday January 9, at the Fire Training Center in Ballston Spa. This is an in person meeting, with the business portion starting at 6:30 PM, and the general meeting starts at 7:00 PM.
I hope everyone is doing well. I also hope you got a chance to get out and see the leaves changing color this fall. N2EKQ and I got out a couple of times, and it was much nicer than we expected. All I heard on the news was that the colors were going to be muted due to the weather during the summer. I don’t think that was the case.
I also hope some of you got on the air last Saturday to work in the NYS QSO party. I got on and had fun. I didn’t beat anyone I’m sure, but the 30 or so SSB contacts I made were quite a nice change of pace for me, you usually find me on FT8, Thanks Brian, NJ1F for letting us know about the party.
I have set up the Zoom meeting for the November 14 meeting, (6:30 PM board, 7:00 PM General meeting). Below is the Zoom invite, and I will be sending that out again later, closer to the meeting, along with the program information.
October 1st is the date for this year’s Simulated Emergency Test. As has been customary, the Saratoga County ARES will be meeting on the 147.24 repeater at 9 am to begin the event. Any and all amateurs are welcome to join in, ARES, RACES, or Club membership is not required.
