Hello GAS members,
I hope this finds everyone in good spirits from all the cold and ice we have been having.
The upcoming GAS meeting is March 17 at Tex and Shirley's Restaurant in the Friendly Shopping Center on Pembroke Rd. The group usually meets at 6:15 to eat and the meeting begins at 7. We invite you to drop by and visit. While you are at it, bring a friend along. A shot program is planned.
If you have not paid your dues, our faithful treasurer, Ernie, NC4EW, is usually there to accept your yearly membership of $20. You can also get further information at the club's web page by clicking here. Your dues are for the support of the W4GG repeaters and equipment for the grounds around the tower.
Recently a close friend Macon Dail, WB4PMQ, the chief engineer for the Voice America in Greenville, sent me information below which you can be a part of in support of Short Wave broadcasts.
"Our agency just announced that they are seeking input regarding the use of shortwave as a broadcasting medium. Would you pass this link to any of your ham friends and ask them to give a comment if they would so desire. This might be a chance to help save US shortwave broadcasting."
Here's the link.
Please take a few minutes to look over this blog. You comments could make a difference.
If someone has any suggestions for programs for our meetings, please let me know.
Hope to see you at the next meeting.
Tom Forrest, N4GVK
GAS Vice President
