Amateur operators set monthly meeting

Posted on Thursday, July 13, 2017 at 8:33 am

The Marshall County Amateur Radio Society will hold its regular monthly meeting this Sunday, July 16, at 2 p.m. in the conference room of the Marshall County Office of Emergency Management at the Hardison Office Annex, 230 College Street, in Lewisburg.

Coffee and a snack will be provided following the business portion of the meeting.

The club will discuss last month’s “Field Day” event held at Rock Creek Park, track those lessons learned and review their scores and compare them to last year’s event. “Field Day” is an annual emergency communications operating event sponsored by the American Radio Relay League – the National Association of Amateur Radio.

Amateur radio operators and anyone with an interest in “ham” radio and emergency preparation are invited and welcome to attend. Talk-in to the meeting will be available on the Lewisburg 146.625 amateur radio repeater.

For additional information on the Marshall County Amateur Radio Society or on “ham” radio, please contact Stephan Anderman, K2SMA, at 931-993-5800, or by e-mail to k2sma@arrl.net.
