KQ’s Korner – January 2014

The new year is here and so is Hamfest season.  There is an area hamfest almost every week for the next few months.  You may or may not need anything, but the visiting and camaraderie cannot be beat.  It sure is nice to put faces to the voices you have been talking to in the past.  And you never know, you might just find something that you just can’t live without.  I will try to get to Madison (Stoughton) but with the situation I have at home I can’t make any long range plans.

Although it is winter now with all of the snow and ice, two more months will bring us to severe weather season.  It starts about the middle of March so make sure you and your equipment are ready.  There is not much time to prepare when the sirens are blowing.

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.
