Greetings from the snowy land of Jamestown, Michigan! I trust you and the family are well and hopefully knocking out the CW qso's on your Kenwood 2000 down in the shack. So how have you been bubba?
John, I been doing pretty good here too this winter and working some CW, JT65hf, and PSK31 qso's on my little Yaesu FT857d and getting some DX when conditions are good.
Hey John, Are you still currently involved and active with the NTS message handling for our great state of Michigan? If so, we could really use your help, with your strong NTS skills, and of course your fine auditory skills too! I was hoping if you could deliver a brief talk ( a primer and introduction on NTS message handling..) for our fresh crop of newly minted hams we have been building up here at Holland ARC. The hams here are eager to learn and ready help with Amateur Radio Service, We just need to find the folks who are willing to share their knowledge and skills to help these new hams along.
The guest speakers for Holland ARC are usually slotted 30 minute time frames to speak on their subject. I find them very useful, and informative. They are also fun to deliver too, as I have given a few talks last year and one already this March on Remote Imaging and how to build a NOAA satellite ground stations for your shack.
If your interested in helping out with this fresh bunch of new hams with the subject of NTS message handling; We would greatly appreciate your help, so give it some thought John, and let me know if we can schedule you in for a guest speaker spot. So let me know Bubba!
DATES CURRENTLY AVAILABLE:
MONDAY APRIL 8 7:00PM
MONDAY MAY 13 "
MONDAY JUNE 10 "
As always, we entice some of our guest speakers with a free dinner
to the local hang out of Russ's in Holland. So for you, I will extend this offer as I may have more leverage with you through your stomach than with logic and wit!
