We will be having a VE test session at the club site this coming Wednesday (3/1) starting at 7:00 PM. If you or someone you know would like to upgrade or get a Technician license, show up to take a test. Remember to bring the $15 testing fee, photo ID, either your current license (if you are upgrading) or your SSN or FRN if taking the Technician test. If you are a VE help us grade the tests.
Thanks and 73’s

We have 5 Wed in March this year, 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, and 29th.
Anyone interested in learning about hidden transmitter hunting is welcome. Our hunts are are hidden mobile, on public accessible locations. We have limited space for ride alongs but we will try to accommodate anyone who shows up. We meet after the hunt for supper and to discuss what we did wrong. The hunt details follow.
The Cuyahoga Falls Amateur Radio semi-monthly (1st and 3rd Wed) foxhunt will start at 6:30 PM this Wed, Mar 15 at the Scout House in Silver Lake, Ohio. The mailing address is 2850 Church St, Stow, Ohio. The GPS coordinates are 41 09.0117 81 27.54714 . It is located on Church St. a block south of RT 59, Kent Rd.
Directions from the RT 8 freeway are as follows: From the South Exit at Rt 59 (to STOW) and follow the road 3 or 4 traffic lights, till you see a church on the South-East side of the road, and a "Silver Lake" sign on the North side. Turn right, and go South for about 1/2 block, the parking lot will be on your left, behind the church. It's harder from the North. Exit At 2nd st. That puts you in the wrong direction but go to a traffic light, turn left, go 1 block and it dead ends on a 1-way to your left on Front St. and Rt 59.
Hope you can make it,
E51KTA Rarotonga Island OC-013
