• Newcomers warmly welcomed (you don't need an FCC license)!
• What to bring - yourself.
• Cost: first meeting is free. Annual membership is $20/year.


7:30pm - Introductions, calendar review, general club business, and welcome new members.

8:00pm - Parachute Mobile is a unique combination of ham radio and skydiving. Over the last nine years their volunteers have completed 34 missions providing a fun and exciting new way to experiment with ham radio and other technical projects. The concept is simple: the skydiver opens up his canopy as soon as he exits the plane using the altitude to his advantage and conducts simplex contacts.

9:00pm - End of Program, and optional socializing. Members will be available to provide information to newcomers wishing to earn their FCC amateur radio license.
