KQ’s Korner – February 2014

I don’t know about the rest of the club, but I am ready for spring.  As I sit here typing this, the temperature is 2 deg and that will probably be the high for the day.  With that thought in mind, it is only about 7 weeks until severe weather season.  The middle of March starts tornado season.  But winter is still here.  We have had more snow than normal this winter but just a few days when travel was difficult.  But that could change quickly so be on your toes all the time in case amateur radio assistance is needed.

I have missed the last few club meetings  but I am going to make an effort to be there on the 11th.  The situation here is not improving at all.  With everything else, I am having vision difficulties and night driving is not fun at all now.  Hopefully, it will improve in the future but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it  Everything else on me is worn out and now the eyes.

That’s about it for this time.  Hope to see all of you Tuesday.

Greetings Everyone!

All amateurs and those interested in amateur radio are welcome at club meetings and events.

The Hidden Valleys Amateur Radio Club is a small friendly club located in the hills and valleys of Southwestern Wisconsin. Our members participate in Field Day, Wisconsin QSO parties, local community service activities, and also offer ham licensing classes. Many of us are trained storm spotters, some have CPR, and a few have multiple Red Cross certifications.

Our club meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month at 7:00PM in the lower level of the Southwest Health Center in Platteville Wisconsin. We have a weekly Sunday night net meeting at 7:30 PM on the N0WLU repeater on 146.895Mhz 114.8 pl. All check-ins are welcome.

We wish to thank Scott Onson KD9GBJ for the server space on which this web site is hosted.
