This blog is frequently updated so check back often. Last update: 5/21/13.
An initial version of the 2013 roster is now available. I managed to dig myself into somewhat of a hole, which I am working my way out of. However, since I got behind updating the roster, not everyone is listed at the moment. I am going through all payments for 2013 but may still miss a few. If you do not receive an email by Friday afternoon with the password for the roster, and you have paid your 2013 dues, please send me an email at email@example.com so I can fix it.
Here is the May 2013 issue of the Ham Arundel News.
Greetings to one and all!
As of this date, there are only 51 days until the start of Field Day.
Do not visit the club’s Field Day website expecting to find up-to-date information about this year’s Field Day operation. Until further notice this BLOG will be the club's official source of Field Day 2013 information.
I think most, if not all of you, know by now that Field Day will be held the weekend of 21-23 June 2013.
Update: Thanks to those that participated in this event. Out of the three events we have had this year, this event proved to be the hardest as band conditions were not favorable. The weather was also a factor for us, as the nice weather had many people outside enjoying the day. The turn out was light at the clubhouse with 9 people showing up. We ended up working 22 counties out of 67 available. It was decided to end the contest early as more than 2 hours had past without anyone else showing up. The radio's were turned off at 5PM.

By popular demand, we are once again convening the Radio Brunch on Saturday, 27 April, 2013. The location is the same, the Old Country Buffet in Annapolis, and the time is 9:00. You pay for the buffet as you enter, and the last time we were there, the cost for seniors was $5.49, and drinks were extra at $1.99. I believe that the non-senior rate is $5.99, and there are generous reductions for youngsters. Plan to come and bring the family to enjoy a great meal with lots of your radio friends. See you there! --Chuck K3ACT
Please welcome these new Technicians from our class. I think a few more will test soon. The free radios are on back order but you should here the new hams on the air soon.
