The club met this evening at Steak N Shake for fellowship and to enjoy food, ice cream or a cool drink on this very hot of a day. The turn out was surprisingly good for the summer months as many are out of town traveling. It was very nice to see two familiar faces -Gina W4GNA and Larry K3LB present to join in the fun. At the meeting many ham radio topics were discussed which ranged from antennas, the latest Apple technology, updates from what the various other clubs are doing in the South Georgia and North Florida area etc. One of the biggest topics discussed was the upcoming ham cram that will hopefully be scheduled for the end of August if a meeting place can be located. So if anyone knows of anyone interested in becoming a ham to please contact him as soon as possible. Gina W4GNA who is from the Madison Florida area indicated that she would like to help the VARC with the their ham crams. It was everyone’s opinion that if we want to see ham radio grow in the area then Hamcrams are going to be a important part of the effort. Thank you to everyone who came to the meeting and to those who have been checking in to the VARC Monday night net.
