January 2019 Meeting

Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic holiday season. This month, we had a great presentation by Frank Howell K4FMH on RF Propagation: Ionization and Prediction. He scratched the surface on a complex and deep subject in a way that made me feel like a genius… until I got home and tried to contact Europe forgetting I had lowered my antenna earlier that week. Apparently, even a guy as smart as Frank can’t help my particular “RF” issues… You can find his slide presentation following and I highly recommend giving it a look through.


Some of the folks from the Vicksburg Amateur Radio Club came to invite us to their Field Day set up this year. It promises to be a great weekend with an even greater group of folks, and we can’t thank the VARC enough for the invite!


We have the Capital City Hamfest coming up on the 25th. CMSARA will have a booth there and could use some members to come man it. So, if you have the time, we’ll have a chair for you!

Or, just come anyway and say hello, the Hamfest is always an interesting event for hams each year.
