Harry, K9DXA, has been holding a three class Special Interest Group (SIG) on HF portable operations.  On June 18th the third and final class was held.  Everyone took their radio and antenna out to the field at the Elburn Forest Preserve.  It was a nice turnout of about 10 people with two stations operating.

January Program Announced - by Jason NX9Y
January 6, 2016 

Hello all,

Wanted to inform the membership that there has been a change in the program for the January program.  Harry's program on the IL QSO party has been moved to March.  Instead we will be presented to by the Kane County Coroner.  His presentation will be on the correct status of their communication capabilities, their communication needs (communications between different branches of public services) and how hams could play a part in that communication in case of a large scale incident.

This program was arranged by Don, WA9FZE.
