Hamfest Correction

The June QST has an error regarding the date of the HERMON HAMFEST. The correct date is Saturday, June 3 at the Hermon High School. This will be a fun hamfest, rain or shine. An antenna launching competition is scheduled, along with VE exams, tailgating and more. Check out for more details.

ARRL Member Survey

Please log onto your ARRL member account at before the end of the month to take the Member Dues Survey. The League wants your input on how to best overcome the huge inflationary costs that is impacting the ARRL. This is your opportunity to voice your opinion, so please do so.

Field Day Locator

Clubs: list your Field Day Site in the ARRL Field Day Locator. Several are not listed and I have been getting queries on where the nearest field day sites are, so if you want more participation and visitors, make it easy for them to find you.
