August Meeting Reminder

Greetings! It’s hot. It’s dry. It’s August.

Why don’t we have a radio club meeting? It IS that time of month, you know. The regular monthly meeting of the Decatur Amateur Radio Club will be held on Tuesday evening, August 6th, at 7:30pm in the basement auditorium of the Morgan County Courthouse in Decatur. Please come BEFORE 7:30 so that you can be admitted to the building, since it remains locked for security purposes. The lower entrance on the Lee Street side is the one that will be open.

We’ve got a few things to discuss this time, and we need to discuss our hopes and dreams for the hamfest coming up in a couple of weeks. Come help us out!

Did I say “hamfest”? The Huntsville Hamfest, which is considered one of the best in the country, will be held on August 17th andn 18th at the Von Braun Center in Huntsville. Be scrounging around for loose change and other valuables that you can sell or swap for great radio stuff! Or if you already have too much “stuff” and want to get rid of some of it, the club has rented a table for selling items. Contact one of the officers for details.

Hope to see you on Tuesday!
