|Holiday/Christmas Dinner Guest speaker:
At the December 3 party, Michael Farrow (K1MIX) will present a “Travelogue” of his journey from childhood to Senior Immaturity. The path that ultimately led him to a near half century career in pro audio had several detours: music performance (played trumpet in symphony orchestras), professional aviation, firearms training, construction (licensed general contractor) and amateur radio. Join us for a ride from rural Alabama, through the steamy Midwest, and the snowy northeast to sunny southern California – he calls it “home.”
Raffle tickets will be on sale for $5.00 each or 5 for $20.00.
Holiday party and Raffle, December 3, 2017
|For hams new to DX, The New DXer’s Handbook, written by Bryce Anderson, K7UA, is a must read. It is about 40 pages in length and answers all the questions. Best of all, it is a free download.
Thank you Mark, K6FG
