VE Testing Location Change

A quick word on VE Testing: The location is changing to the Fulton County Administration Building, 152 S Fulton St, Wauseon, OH 43567. We'll be in the same room as our club meetings on the second floor. The time and date remain the same. This will be considered a permanent change.


A different kind of club meeting for August!

Ready for something different? How about a club meeting and dinner?  We eluded to this in the meeting notes sent out, and to make it official, the August 16th stated meeting will be at the Delta 109 in Delta, OH.  Yes, we are still meeting at 7:30pm, and yes, you are responsible for your own dinner costs.  Since summer meetings tend to be a bit on the more relaxed side, with many of the big events past us, it was proposed we do a combo dinner and club meeting.  See you at the 109!

Field Day Recap

The transmitters and antennas are stowed away for another year as we wind down Field Day 2021.  First, a huge thank you to everyone who ventured out to the Woodlot, despite the threats of never-ending rain (that thankfully never happened).  It was great to have so many of our newest club members present to observe and even try their hand at contesting on HF.  I also wanted to thank directly KD8PUD for arranging our Fulton County 911 coordinator for a site visit today.  There will be more on our conversation with Richard Kilgour coming soon, especially how we can have our emergency services efforts tied more directly to the county.  We were also treated to a site visit from our ARRL Ohio Section Manager, Tom Sly, who took time away from his radio club to venture around the state, making a stop in our little corner.
