There will be a testing session coming up in June.  Listen to the Monday night net for the date, time and location.

The next monthly meeting will be on June 17, 2014.  We will be discussing Field Day.  We will be going over the plans and making assignments for helping out.  Field Day is 24 hours long and we need people to work the radios all night.
