- If you are interested in a SES, please check their website to confirm that they will be on the air as many of the events are being postponed.
- We need meeting presentations! Preferably on Contesting before Field Day, However, anything you may be interested in please let me know.
If you are interested in being net control, please let me or one of the officers know.
