GOTAhams Planning ahead

With Field Day past many clubs will be looking back and winding down, Sorry that is NOT how this group operates. We have an important general membership meeting coming up soon, July 9th 7:00 pm at Casa Jimenez restaurant, where we will be hosting the ARRL ORG Section Manager. We will have a slide show showing our Field Day, Swap meet booth, “In the Park” field Ops etc. and discuss what we do, how we can improve, future Ops and possibly forming a committee for Field Day 2020. I would like to begin some “Maker” training including basic soldering skills, kit building, antenna construction and any other ideas submitted by our members.

We would like to offer hosting a Boy Scout JOTA/JOTI in October, Kathi and I will be at “Pacificon” in San Ramon that weekend but I would still like to see the GOTAhams do our regular Field Ops that weekend. Mark will definitely need plenty of support for that Op. Being the creative crew that I have come to depend on, please don’t be shy about offering more ideas for what keeps this Club “Radio Active” ’73 Ken KC6WOK
