Technician Class Cancelled

The Technician license class originally scheduled for this month has been cancelled for now. It is “Parked” on two Saturdays, May 16 & 23. Depending on how the coronavirus outbreak goes, it will settle on a pair of dates. Feel free to sign up, even if it puts you on a waiting list.

August Picnic

Lincoln County amateur Radio Club will not meet this month on our usual 2nd Tuesday date. Instead, we will join with ACS for a picnic at Big Creek Park on the 3rd Tuesday, August 20. It’s a semi-potluck, with ribs provided. Dinner is at 6:00 pm.

June Happenings

June’s Club meeting will be on the second Tuesday, 7:00 pm at the Samaritan Center for Health Education, 740 SW 9th in Newport. The Auxiliary Communications Service (ACS) meeting is at 6:00 pm, and all are welcome to attend both.

ARRL Field Day is Saturday June 22, with setup on Friday and tear down on Sunday. We will once again be setting up at Toledo Waterfront Park. More details to come as we have them.

Field Day 2018

Field Day is always the fourth weekend in June, nationwide. Join us at Toledo’s Waterfront Park, from 11am Saturday to Sunday morning.

Amateur License Exams

Due to a conflict, the location for Amateur Radio Exams has changed for the April 14 session. We will be in the McEntee Meeting Room at Newport Public Library, 35 NW Nye St., in Newport. The time is 9 am, as usual. We usually get there at the last minute, so don’t worry. Park in the lower parking lot, and enter through the downstairs door.

Walk-ins are welcome, but it can be helpful to know you’re coming:
