Les/KH6CUJ is recovering at home

Subject: Update on Les Silva

Sorry it has taken so long to respond but it has been crazy around here, and by night I’m just too tired to do email responses.

Les came home a week ago (Friday, 8/19). It is so good to be home for both of us for so many reasons, but for me, that drive of 1 1/2 hours each way daily was surely getting old and leaving very little time to attend to things at home.

License Exams Scheduled for Aug. 13 2016 (CANCELLED)

This months testing at the AARC Clubhouse scheduled for the 13th has been cancelled. We will hold our normal session on 9/10/2016 If you were planning on showing up as a walk-in, please consider one of the other test sessions in the area, a list or locations can be found at Sorry for the inconvenience. If you would like to help with the MDQSO party at the clubhouse feel free to stop by, remember you don't have to be license and it will be a good opportunity to get on the air with one of our control operators.
