Looking for an "Elmer" to help you get started?
Steve Taylor KC7IHV is holding an get together in the Alex Creek Bldg. Room 556 for Saturday, the 7th of May in order to provide support to new ham operators in programming, operation, antenna advice, radio setup and other areas where there may be questions that they need to have assistance with. Several Extra and General class operators have agreed to be on hand for this "Elmering" event.  Anticipated time for the event is 8-12 Noon, depending on the number of new hams who respond.  We hope to have those who need assistance and plan to attend, to respond via e-mail to ajoelb76@gmail.com soon so we have a good idea of how many will be there. Please pass this information on to others.  With good response, this could become a regular event with specific subjects for each meeting.
