Mike, K1DM, sent this today about another possible venue for February 4th’s meeting. We are scheduled to go to T’s restaurant but I wanted to throw this out there for the membership’s consideration. Time is short so please reply ASAP with your choice.
The Cadets at W1CGA would like to invite us to share their hamshack for the Feb 4th meeting. We can hold the meeting in the Communications Lab (home of W1CGA) and stay all day. Coffee and other food are be allowed. Mike will provide additional information about access to the Coast Guard Academy grounds if the meeting venue is approved by the CTRI members.
Following the meeting, it might be fun to introduce the Cadets to RTTY since the Mexico RTTY contest is that day.
There are some other issues regarding the W1CGA antenna farm that we may be able to assist with – more to follow.
Also, the Cadets are scheduling a VE Exam for later in February. We have about half a dozen already licensed, and probably 20 who showed up for the preliminary meeting this passed week! Very exciting. If you are a ARRL VE, and would like to help proctor the exam, please let Mike know. We could use some EXTRA class license holders.
