The next club meeting will be held on July 30th at 7:30 P.M. After the business meeting Bob Warwick will give a program on the Icom IC-7300. This is the first stand alone SDR (Software Defined Radio) radio that does not require a computer. Some day all radios will be something like this model.
New Club Roster, 6/27/18, is on the Leaders & Members page. Note: If you don't see your name, it means you have forgotten to pay your 2018 Dues.
It is sad to report that Bob Fay, KB8HW has become a silent key. Bob and Sally (WB8VBP) have been long time members of the radio club dating back to the 1970's. Bob was a past President of the club and was extremely active in all of the club activities. Many a field day was saved by Bob's knowledge as a union electrician. We always knew the repeater was working when we heard Bob and Sally talking on Bob's way home from work at the Ford plant. He and Sally could also be found with a table full of equipment at every hamfest. In fact, I bought my first HF beam from them that lasted until last year when a pine tree took it down along with my tower. This field day Bob and Sally came for the dinner and I had the opportunity to have a long conversation with Bob. He was very ill, but still interested in all of his amateur radio friends. He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
According to the Daily Telegram, visitation for Bob will be held on Thursday, Aug.2, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Anderson-Marry Funeral Home, Adrian. Funeral Services will be held on Friday, Aug. 3 at 2:00 p.m. at the funeral home. A private burial of the cremains will take place at a later date at Oak Grove Cemetery in Morenci.
Good journey my friend, KB8 Hot Water.
