Newsletter Deadline is Today (29 December)

Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and Santa brought you some ham radio gear. New Year's Day is just a few days away and I'm looking for inputs for the January issue of The RADIOGRAM from all the PCARS members out there.


Deadline is TODAY –  Friday – December 29th – at 8p. If you send pictures, please make sure they are large and in focus. 
What did Santa bring you in the way of ham radio goodies? Anything for sale or wanted related to ham radio? How about a Shack Shot? Are you getting ready for the DXpedition season? 
What new year's resolutions have you made to advance your fun in ham radio?
Hope to hear from you really soon.
HAPPY NEW YEAR

Join us for the digital net tomorrow!

You are invited to our Wednesday night digital net on the K8IV repeater tomorrow at 7:30. We host the net every two weeks, alternating between 80 meters and 2 meters. Tomorrow we'll be using FM digital to pass traffic using FLDIGI and FLMSG.

As always, I'll be monitoring the repeater a little early, starting at 7pm if you want to get on the air ahead of the net to test your setup.

If you are planning on joining the net, please come prepared with a message to pass and FLMSG installed on your computer. If you are going to be unable to install FLMSG ahead of time, you will still be able to receive the messages as they are passed.

Hope to see you on the air!
