This week in HAM for us is a good week….

The net is tonight (8/22) at 730PM on the 442.425Mhz machine with a 127.3Hz CTCSS tone. Join Brook Peabody W4BDP live from Polk City for the net. Brook will announce the location of the Round Table net that follows the regular net.  Come a make Brook feel welcome as he fills in for the weeks net.
