We will be meting at Red Top Mountain Picnic Shelter #5 for the October Meeting.
Please join us for a cookout and fellowship with your fellow members. Bring a radio and antenna or just show up for the fun. The club will provide a meat and drinks. Please bring a side or a dessert to help out. There is a play ground close to the picnic area so if you have kids that would like to come bring them. There is a $5 dollar fee per car to park at the park. Restrooms are very close to the picnic area too. There is limited power so plan on battery power if you have it. This will be a great time to practice your ARES / RACES skills.
We will also provide the monthly ARRL testing at that location for anyone wanting to upgrade or take their exam for a license.
Take Red Top Mountain Rd Se to Red Top Beach Rd. Proceed to Picnic Shelter number 5.
