Come Join Us For Field Day 2019!!!  It is always Fun, The Food is good and there is always plenty of it.  The level of Camaraderie is high and it is great to see friends we haven’t seen in a while.  For more information on how you can participate in this yearly Special Event, call David Gulley, KI4AAU, at 423.306.1876.  The dates of  the event are June 22 and 23.

Saturday July 20 is the day we help celebrate Makers Faire in Kingsport.  Not only is it good for Kingsport but it is good for us.  Our club has more exposure to the public than any other time of the year.  With a couple of tables and radios outside and a room with radios inside, we have seen public interest in our club grow.  For information on how you can be part of this exciting event, call Carl Hacker, WC5M, at 713.306.0809.
