Congratulations to New Hams!

Congratulations to the 8 people who earned their Technician License tonight! This constitutes a 100% pass rate for tonight's session. It is really great to see new people enthusiastically coming into the hobby.

Also, thanks to all of the VEs who helped with the session! It would not be possible without you.

HF Antenna Kits & Build Session

So here's the idea:

I'll be purchasing in bulk some 14-gauge 7-strand wire, 450 ohm ladder line, and insulators.

Contact me (Mitch, WQ3C) to get in on this bulk order.  We're looking at well over 1000' of wire.
