With the winter weather I have been kind of staying close to home these past few weeks.  I did visit SMARA  Schenectady Museum ARA) on January 18th and EGARA (East Greenbush ARA) on February 14th.  Both clubs asked me to speak on projected changes in the ENY Section, ARRL issues, and recent ARES changes.  Now that winter is loosening its grip, I hope to venture a little further afield.

I will be speaking at Warren Co. RACES on February 26th, and on March 22nd I have been asked to address the Watervliet Library on an introduction to Amateur Radio.  The start time is about 6:30PM for that.  This talk is open to the public, so encourage your non-ham friends to attend.

Lastly, on March 3rd and 4th I will be assisting the “Hams That Care” technician class.  I will be teaching electronic theory and also serving as a VE on Sunday.

Upcoming important events:

February 24th — Northern District ARES meeting at the Clifton Park Public Library

April 29th — Orange County HamFest
