Meeting Information:

Our November meeting will be on Tuesday, November 15th at 7:00pm at the Springfield Justice Center 230 4th Street, Springfield, OR., 97477. Our presenter will be ARRL Northwestern Division Director, Mike Ritz; W7VO. A Forty-year plus life member of the ARRL and a very active Ham, Mike was first licensed in 1974. Mike is a very informative and entertaining presenter so bring a friend and come prepared to have a great time.

A bit on Mike’s talk: The Storied History of the Ham Radio Callsign- Every legal amateur radio operator in the world has a government issued call sign, and many hams are better known to their radio friends by their call sign than they are by their given birth name. The question to be answered is: What is the history of these important monikers, and how is that history tied to major world events? Join us on a journey through time, as we explore the storied history of the ham radio callsign.

REMEMBER: We will have refreshments as well as a mini swap meet for attendees Anyone attending our meeting can bring two items (like a radio, mic, Power Supply, Antenna or whatever else the radio includes), to sell. See you at our meeting, Bring a friend!
