August Section Manager’s Message:  

Greetings North Florida Hams!  Welcome to the GREATEST HOBBY IN THE WORLD!

Hi Folks,

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!
