Ellen White Will Be Our Speaker At The July Meeting

Get your questions ready. Ellen White will be our guest speaker next month. She is a world traveler, avid ham radio operator, and long time ARRL staff member before retiring. If you have any questions about the ARRL, especially the early years, get them ready for Ellen. I think you are going to find her both a wealth of knowledge, as well as a fascinating individual.

And please remember. The meeting location will be the Community Southern Bank. See below for more details. Do not show up at the Presbyterian Church on Florida Avenue. The building has been sold and we will no longer meet there.
