This coming Monday, (April 9), is our monthly club meeting. It is being held at the usual location, namely the Wilton EMS building, off of Jones Road. As usual, the club meeting is at 7 PM, and the business meeting is held just before that at 6:30 PM.
This month’s speaker is Mike Levy K2ZIP, and the topic will be:
Lessons Learned: Ham Radio and other considerations in Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands after Hurricanes Irma and Maria
The response to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma still serve as learning experiences for state and local leaders, disaster experts, federal government agencies, and the United States as a whole. This presentation provides advice to anyone with a stake in disaster response, relief, and recovery, including hams living in the impacted area as well as those responding from elsewhere to help.
Mike will be speaking from first-hand experience, as he went to PR to help with the relief effort from Maria. It should be an interesting subject, I hope to see you all there.
Looks like the wx man messed up again, and the big snowstorm for today (wed 10th), won’t be quite as big as they predicted!!
Don’t forget the swapfest this Saturday, Snow should not be an excuse for you not coming!!
Its at the Cooperative Extension building at 50 West High Street in Ballston Spa, hope to see you there.
Door prize is a Yaesu handheld, FT-65R, admission is free.
