June and Fieldday came and went, 4th of July passed.Solar Activity the other day got a lot of Hams excited.We made some fantastic contacts when it hit.Reminded me of being at the Coast and watching the Surfers holding onto their boards, then suddenly someone yells, "Surfs Up!" Now, quite a few are scrambling to Weatherize, Winterize, and get ready for more and greater Solar Activity as we reach the Peak of the Eleven-Year Cycle.
Kathy KI6UIN and I have made a considerable amount of Upgrades, and improvements inside and outside of the Hamshack.And I know several others preparing for the atmospheric Surf and the Amateur Operator's Dream of Contacts galore!
Speaking of upgrades.BARA has downsized some of its Inventory and Re-tuned our goals and direction.Thanks to John, KE6BEZ and Kathy, KI6UIN for getting the Club Trailer cleaned out.And Kudo's for Earlene KD6EAC, dealing with the paperwork and Sales Transactions.And Jerry N6BAR for his advice and help in getting everything Priced.
And a big thank you to those in our group that have purchased equipment and for their ideas and support.Things are moving along great as we all have been working shoulder-to-shoulder to accomplish these changes.
The Website has never looked better! A big Thank You to our WebMaster.If I've missed anyone I'm sorry, it wasn't intentional.
