My name is John and I've been in the hobby for about 8 years now. I haven't been too active on the air the past year mainly because it's been my first year at university and I've been kept busy, though I'd still like to help get you started. I'd recommend you attend PARK's meeting this month if you are able and live close enough (see here for time and place: www.k5prk.net/park-meeting-info
). This will give you a chance to meet hams in the area in person. If you'd like to talk with me more about the hobby, please get in touch and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Have a good one!
John - KF5BSS
FYI: Due to the fact that not too many members have been actively using the forums lately and the fact that moderation is required, I've been asked to lock the forums and encourage people to contact one of the club's officers via email (see www.k5prk.net/park-officers
for addresses) for further discussion.
