August Section Manager’s Message:
Greetings North Florida Hams! Welcome to the GREATEST HOBBY IN THE WORLD!
Oops! Two months in a row – I’m kinda’ sneaking this in as I pack to head to Colorado (visiting my daughter – YES! I’m bringing my KX-3……) – so it’s gonna’ be another short one! (and a bit early…….).
The Milton Hamfest was July 7th and 8th. I was there both days, and actually did some card checking!
It was a fun time, and they had a good crowd. Here I am “manning the ARRL Booth” with Mr. Ham Radio himself, the Great Frank Butler W4RH!
