Upcoming Events


    Now that the equipment for the hamshack has been purchased we need the membership to help us out to get on the air.  We have purchased an ICOM-2720, which is a 2m/440 dual band radio with wide band receive.  We will need proposals for set up, espically with our new diamond antenna.  We also will need help setting up the shack and preparing it for use.  We have everything necessary to operate a 2M/440 radio station, and expand onto the HF bands next semester.  We will need the assistance of the full membership to accomplish this though.  Please help us by visiting the message baord and posting your comments.
