We have started a new morning net everyday at 9:00AM on the 147.045 or the 442.350 club repeaters, with a PL tone of 100. Since our Club Meetings have been cancelled until further notice, the Board Members thought it would be a good thing to have a net every morning to check on the health and welfare of our Members. This is not a formal net, and anyone anywhere can check in, especially all of our hams in neighboring counties ! So pour yourself a cup of coffee and come join us for some informational and sometimes humorous conversations ! Also please join us on our weekly Club Net Wednesday nights at 8:30PM. 73 Everyone !
BECAUSE OF THE COVID 19 NUMBERS STILL CLIMBING, THE CHRISTMAS PARTY AND THE 2021 HAMFEST HAS BEEN CANCELLED. LETS HOPE THIS WHOLE THING WINDS DOWN SOON. MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE OFFICERS AND DIRECTORS OF THE HIGHLANDS COUNTY AMATEUR RADIO CLUB !
