General Meeting, April 27, 2021

Guest Speaker Robert Molledo of the National Weather Service in Miami

Please join us as we update our knowledge on weather in South Florida when Robert Molledo talks on "Looking Forward to Hurricane Season 2021: General Outlook and Changes for the Season” .

Robert always has an interesting program and plenty of insight into the next weather cycle. Looking forward to seeing all the hams and volunteers there on Tuesday, April 27, 2021, at 7:00 pm check-in and 7:30 pm to start the meeting.

73’s to all.

Yesteryear Village

Some of you might remember our antique radio museum in Yesteryear Village at the South FL Fair a few years ago.

Fair officials have approached me to re-establish this exhibit at the fair once again. They would like us to set up a functioning amateur radio station for the upcoming fair from May 7 thru the 23rd this year.

After the fair, they are planning to work with us to set up a permanent exhibit in a building at Yesteryear Village.

I'm looking for volunteers for the fair and the permanent exhibit for set up and working the booth.

We are also looking for donations of radio equipment, antennas, etc. to put this all together.

If you are interested in this worthwhile project to promote ham radio in our community, drop me an email or call my cell.

Tnx & 73,
Jeff WA4AW

RE: Imperial Point Meetings
Due to the Sate of Florida Recommendations and those of the Health Department, we cannot yet meet in person at Imperial Point. Social distancing and sterilization necessitates a modicum of caution for such meetings to be held at the hospital. When we get the "all clear" we will inform the membership of the resumption of physical meetings. Meanwhile, it is hoped that all of our members stay healthy and stay safe.
