The calendar may say August, but the weather here in North Carolina certainly does not. We have had a very mild summer so far. I know that is not the case for many parts of the country with severe droughts, fires, and other weather related issues. For those of you in those stricken areas, please know that our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Regardless of the weather, hopefully, you have been able to get on the air and enjoy amateur radio activities. Take a few minutes to read through the events for August to see what catches your attention.
Until next month….

Be sure to check out the updated Handiham Net information. There are several opportunities throughout each week.
2. Editor’s Pick of the Month:
I always have fun reading through the posted Special Events on the ARRL website as I put together this Events Page. The tough part is choosing which Special Events to highlight. As I read through this month’s events, there was one that caught my attention. It is the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) On-The-Air event on August 9th. Be sure to take some time to read about the event, and then plan to participate. You’ll learn a little history and maybe be part of making history by participating.
