President's Message April 2014

Want to have some fun, and practice your radio tactics and techniques?

Do you like to eat, because as a bonus, IF you come to the Walk for Alex, you can enjoy a food feast afterwards. Seriously, this event needs you help to assist the organizers providing the safety net for the many runners. They do fall, drop and otherwise need emergency medical attention, which we facilitate with our radio network. Traditionally we have barely squeaked buy with "just enough" operators. This year we should mark our calendars and show up for the morning. You will be home in time to mow the yard before lunch.

Don Smith KB3YLR and Bob Ketzell KB3IN will be discussing the event at the meeting and asking you to participate. Do it, you will have fun, practice emergency radio procedures, get a tan and eat some food.

The board has been discussing opening up the shack for Tuesday evenings, for coffee, and to play radio...we can do the nets, checkout our procedural operating for FIELD DAY. If you did not notice, last year Ken's leadership and planning landed WA3COM at the top. I am certain Ken will be setting us up for new level of accomplishments.

A body at rest stays, a body in motion stays in motion...
So get moving...Get RADIOACTIVE

73, Bill Steffey, NY9H/3
