SwapFest In Lieu of March Regular Meeting

Just a reminder, this is March.  Each March in lieu of our regular monthly meeting, we hold our annual SwapFest at the Cooperative Extension Building, 50 West High Street, Ballston Spa.  Doors open at 8 AM, and we start closing up at about 11 so that we can have a VE exam session at noon.  Attached is a flyer for the SwapFest to be held on Saturday, March 11.

Remember, no regular club meeting in Wilton on March 13, so DON’T SHOW UP ON THE REGULAR MONDAY NIGHT, as you will be the only one there.

Capital District Commuter Net

KB2GOM, Jock Elliott has been running the Capital District Commuter Net weekday mornings for 20 plus years. The commuter net is run on the 146.94 repeater with permission from David C Edwards, W2GBO. During Monday’s presentation Jock will describe how he coordinates traffic updates with the Capital Region Traffic Management Center and how the net operates.

Please join us for our regular monthly meeting on Monday, October 10, 2016, for what will be a very interesting presentation on the goings-on behind an amateur radio ‘net’.
