Dave Ingram KN4DTS, a new General shakes hands with Peggy N4PEG our Testing Coordinator while Dan, KN4FBD to the right of Dave looks on.

 Our Speaker For The Evening, Al Sheppard Speaking on Propagation


Al is seen here delivering his presentation on propagation. Not quite over a serious chest cold, he made the extra effort to stand and deliver. His presentation can be found on the Yahoo Group site under General Meeting Presentations. Click the Menu Item above labeled LARC Website, and then the link to General Meeting Presentations.

Field Day Results
Fred gave a summary of our performance on Field Day. We did about as well as last year, except in the area of satellite contacts where we excelled. Good work Matthew.
