I hope each of you and your families are doing well. The amateur radio activity has certainly picked up at our house recently. Contest season is in full force, and the nicer weather has allowed my husband to get outside more often to make sure all is well with the antennas. We had an ice storm about a month ago that, thankfully, did not leave too much damage in its wake. I hope you have also been able to have time to do some “Spring cleaning” with your amateur radio equipment.
Take some time to look through the events for this month. As usual, there is quite a lot going on in the world of amateur radio. I hope you find several events that will spark your interest.
Until next month….
