Spring is always a busy time. . .2017 Field Day preparation, antenna repair and family events like graduations keep us moving. Many thanks to all of our GSARA members who sacrifice family time to help prepare for our GSARA Field Day. The league Field Day locator is now up so check it out. There are about eight NH clubs showing so far. Of course, we know the best and most fun operation in all NH is located right here at Earl Legacy Park.
If you haven't seen it yet, ask Charlie about our new 40 meter Beam. With the low sunspot count now happening, we'll need a little extra directed power on 40 and Charlie's beam will deliver!
Adding to our club's antenna inventory couldn't happen without a healthy club treasury. Thanks to Bill Orr for bringing donations from our club friend Doug Newhall. Those donations brought in over $200 so many thanks for Doug's generosity and Bill's efforts to bring the donations to the April meeting!
Our May meeting was great fun as we earned about Raspberry pi devices. Tom, AC1J brought us a great speaker in Don Norris. Many members approached me afterwards to learn more about digital modes so let's keep promoting and learning about digital modes and devices and projects!
June's meeting will focus on field day preparations. Come on by and see whats new for 2017 Field Day!
Our 2017 Board of Officers are:
Dennis Markell (President), John Grubmuller (Vice-President),
