Superstition ARC The President's Corner

For March 2018 By Stephen, KB7KWK

It was great to see all the new hams at the February club meeting. Our presentation was on Antenna Theory 97 Andy KD4ABB and Jeff K2DFE gave the presentation and they did a very nice job keeping it simple so people could understand what they were speaking about. This will be the theme for the entire year. All of our programs will be geared to the new ham. We want to keep things simple and easy to understand for those hams new to the hobby. Our March meeting presentation will be and Elmer’s panel. For those of you that do not know what that means, an Elmer is someone who has been in the hobby for a long time or it could be people with a lot of knowledge in on area. So at that meeting there will be Elmer’s from a wide range of backgrounds in the hobby that people can ask questions of. Remember like we all have been taught , there are no stupid questions. So we hope to see a lot of new people at the March meeting and all meetings through the year.

We have our Falcon Field event coming up on March 24th at Falcon Field. This will be the clubs fourth year at this event. The City of Mesa and Falcon Field have The Falcon Field Open House each March. There is all kinds of activities going on throughout the day. Car show, airplane displays, and other exhibits. Our club will be right at the main entrance and as always, we will have several radio stations set up for people to check out. We will have HF, 2 meters, and possibly some Mesh demos as well. We will be setting up on Friday evening and we could use some volunteers to help with that. If anyone can help, please contact me on the air or email me. I hope to see a lot of club members at the event.

I look forward to seeing all of you at club meetings and outings in 2018. When you see me out there or hear me on the air, please say hello.

Your 2018 Club President, Steve Estes, KB7KWK
