We will be practicing Social Distancing as outlined in CDC recommendations. All are excited to resume our Summer Schedule and we look forward to seeing each other again.

We look forward to having a great 2020 – come and join us if you’re interested in learning about the latest technologies and activities of Ham Radio.
The Group has been approved to use the Sports Pavillon for the ARRL Field Day June 27-28, 2020! Get your gear “tuned up” over the winter and we’ll have another great event in 2020, writes President Stuart Gallant.
A new year brings some new changes for the Amateur Radio Group. Stuart Gallant ( K3RZB ), a 59 year veteran of amateur radio, was elected President of our Group. He is taking over from Jim Darby ( K6GYM ), who graciously gave up his chair after many years of dedication. John Griffin ( NQ6Q ) has volunteered to take over the Repeater Trustee duties from Doug Thom ( N6OYU ). He accepted the position with the assurance that we would all help maintain the repeater site when there were chores to be done.
Stuart is a bio-engineer who developed medical devices for the management of multiple medical conditions. He retired from Apple in 2017 and moved to Lincoln Hills. Stuart is a ham radio operator with an Extra Class License and is fully engaged on multiple bands and modes. He has plans for the ARG to become more active and engaged in 2020, introducing a list of activities for consideration and discussion at our last meeting.
Come to one of our Monday night meetings and meet Stuart.
