Addendum:

Next meeting presentation:

“BASIC RADIO COMMUNICATIONS GOOD PRACTICES”

Steve Stein, KE8BJD, will be conducting a presentation on "Basic Radio Communications Good Practices" at our March 10th meeting.  Steve is a relatively new HAM but brings with him a 30+ year background in video communication, and 20+ years of experience in volunteer search and rescue radio communications.  His emphasis is in presenting tools to help any radio communicator to speak with clarity.  As he likes to say, "A communication not understood, is a communication not sent.” This presentation would be especially helpful for newer communicators, or those wishing to participate in emergency communications.
