Introductions around the table for the new attendee, Logan Brinks

Five radio technician books “W5Yi by Gordon West“ are ordered and Kent will receive them by our next meeting. Kent collected a list of volunteers to deliver the books to the area libraries. Approx. $125 spent

Treasurers Report: 817.86 – Paid Alvin for repeater purchase.

There are 20 paid members.

Tower project at Badger Camp is being scaled back.  Too expensive.  The donated tower is solid steel, heavy, hard to work with. “Cheaper to put up a new 100’ tower”.

Reminder, new hams will receive a free radio when they join our club.  Pre-programmed and ready to dial into local repeaters!

Dustin will make some free radio flyers that we can hand out to the public at field day.

Dustin will make some fancy flyers, for field day.  He will email a pdf to club members the week of field day.

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.
